|Holland Releasing to Distribute Legend Films' PLAN 9 FROM OUTER SPACE|
Dec 03, 2005
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
NOTORIOUS “PLAN 9 FROM OUTER SPACE”
TO BE REISSUED
THEATRICALLY – IN COLOR FOR THE FIRST TIME
Known as “The
Worst Movie Ever Made”
Director Ed Wood’s utterly
preposterous 1959 masterpiece of poorly executed film-making -- PLAN 9 FROM
OUTER SPACE -- is slated for a national theatrical reissue, in color for the
first time. The film, part of THE ED
WOOD FILM FESTIVAL includes other Ed Wood oddities including home movies and
commercials directed by Wood.
San Diego, California-based Legend Films, Inc. has
completed the most extensive restoration of PLAN 9 to date, including
colorization of the film utilizing new, proprietary digital technology.
“This is the most extensive restoration ever done on
this film,” says David Martin, CEO of Legend Films. “Ed Wood fans will truly
enjoy seeing this film expertly restored and in color for the first time.”
Ed Wood’s unintentionally hilarious cult classic of
aliens who attempt to conquer Earth by reanimating the dead has been hailed as
the “worst movie ever made.” With string-powered flying saucers, laughable
dialogue, shrewd alien logic and “priceless” special effects, the aliens’
invasion plan can’t go wrong. (Hint: It does.)
In addition to PLAN 9 FROM OUTER SPACE, the
theatrical release also includes never-before-seen Ed Wood home movies (yes,
see Ed model his famous angora sweater and fishnet stockings), rare Ed Wood
commercials, the LOST PLANS 1-8, narrated by Mystery Science Theater 3000’s
Mike Nelson, and much more.
Los Angeles-based Holland Releasing will distribute the program theatrically.
