MARVEL COMICS LEGEND STAN LEE PUTS HANDPRINTS-FOOTPRINTS IN CEMENT AT TCL CHINESE THEATRE IMAX® FORECOURT

Legion M Presents ICON: Celebrating Stan Lee,
The First Ever Fan-Hosted Ceremony In TCL Chinese Theatre History

WHO: Acclaimed Comics Legend STAN LEE…

WHAT: PLACES HIS HANDPRINTS AND FOOTPRINTS IN CEMENT…

WHEN: TUES, JULY 18, 10AM PRESS CHECK IN, 11AM Event

WHERE: TCL CHINESE THEATRE IMAX® FORECOURT, 6925 Hollywood Blvd. Hollywood, CA. 90028

HOLLYWOOD, CA–On July 18, and on the eve of San Diego Comic-Con, the iconic creator and force behind Marvel Comics, STAN LEE, will put his handprints and footprints in cement in the forecourt of the TCL Chinese Theatre IMAX®. Presented by Legion M, ICON: Celebrating Stan Lee, is the first ever handprint-footprints ceremony in TCL history to be organized and hosted by the fans.

“Stan Lee gave us the heroes that fueled our imagination and aspirations” said Kevin Smith, Filmmaker, Actor, Writer, Comedian and Stan Lee Fan.

“Now, WE, the fans, are coming together to give this permanent monument and tribute to the man that gave us so much.”

Stan Lee, the chief creative force behind the rise of Marvel Comics, brought to life some of the world’s most famous heroes and infamous villains, including Spider-Man, The Hulk, X-Men, Fantastic Four, Iron Man, Thor, Daredevil, Dr. Strange, The Avengers, Loki, and Dr. Doom. His stories featured heroes and villains that were more psychologically complex than had ever been seen previously, inspiring legions of fans.

According to his autobiography, Excelsior, “Lee put the human in the superhuman.”

Lee’s connection to fans immediately led him to Legion M’s unique model of being the first fan- owned entertainment company, and he has been supportive of Legion M since its launch in 2016. Legion M embodies the fan culture that Lee’s work launched, perpetuating a legacy that has impacted generations. By organizing and rallying the fans, celebrities, companies and anyone who has been positively impacted by Lee’s work, Legion M is paying a heartfelt, historic and overdue tribute to one of the greatest storytellers of our time.

“On behalf of Stan Lee and Stan Lee Collectibles, we’re deeply moved and appreciative of the groundswell of fan support Stan has always enjoyed, and we’re grateful that his fans have united together with Legion M to give him this great honor,” says Stan Lee Collectibles CEO Max Anderson.

As a producer, writer, editor, publisher, actor, host and executive, and idol to many, Stan ‘the Man’ Lee has left an indelible mark on the entertainment industry having created or co-created 90% of Marvel’s most recognized characters. These creations have spawned books, films, television series, video games, web series, Broadway shows and more offering a steady stream of box office.

In 2017, Stan will celebrate his 95th birthday and 70th wedding anniversary, along with the 78th anniversary of the day he first started as an assistant filling inkwells at Timely Comics – now Marvel Comics – which over a lifetime of work he helped turn into one of the biggest media brands in the world.

Fans are invited to get involved, attend the event (and after party), pay tribute to Stan, take home a piece of history and more by visiting https://thelegionm.com/celebrating-sta

LONDON CALLING IS A HIT!!!

Come see ‘London Calling – The Musical ‘ at the Hudson Backstage Theatre in Hollywood. The play is produced by Mark Hensley & Gwenn Morreale.

‘London Calling – the Musical’ celebrates the 40th anniversary of the English punk rock band, The Clash and the release of their eponymous debut album in 1977. The play, written by Peggy Lewis, and directed by Rod McLachlan, explores the lives of four young men who endeavor to play and stay in a punk rock band.

The four band mates include cast members Sam Meader, Paul Holowaty, Duane Asante Ervin, and Tom Conlan. Sam Meader stars as Tom, the lead vocalist and guitarist. Meader channels the ineffable, disaffected youth sentiment of the time, and evokes a young Malcolm McDowell. Amy Scribner who plays Ann, Tom’s mother, as well as a employment counselor, shows her acting chops. As Tom’s mother, Scribner is nurturing and kind, but easily switches hats to become a businesslike counselor. Sean Smith is another versatile actor in the cast who plays Eddie French, the manager who discovers Tom, as well as three other roles. Gary Picot plays Tom’s father and a judge. Picot garnered a lot of laughs in the judge’s wig and court dress.

Steve, performed by Tom Conlan, is convincing as a robbing yob who redeems himself in jail. Torie Tyson is hilarious as Babs, mother of the thieving Steve. As a brassy and brazen bar maid, Torie belts out her vocals and grabs the audience’s attention instantaneously as she steals the show.  TORIE TYSON REMEMBER HER.!!!!!!

 

 

 

  Sam Saldivar plays Steve’s thief friend as well as three other characters. Paul Holowaty plays Jimmy and capitvates the audience with his physicality. Duane Asante Ervin as Rudie shows much promise as a young actor on a meteoric rise. Dee, performed by Michelle Jean Anderson, and Sue performed by Hayley McLaughlin are attractive girlfriends. The two dancers, Punk 1 and Punk 2, played by Sarah Marquelle Kruger and Natalie Davis hold the viewer’s attention and move the play forward.

You will enjoy hearing Clash classics like “Rock the Casbah”, “Should I Stay or Should I Go”, and of course, “London Calling”. The musical arrangements are recorded by Vince Jones, and include players Martijn Lenoble on bass, Victor Indrizzio on drums, and Joel Shearer on guitar.

On the 40th anniversary since the release of the first Clash album in 1977, “London Calling” a musical with music by The Clash and book by Peggy Lewis will premiere at The Hudson Theatre during the Hollywood Fringe festival in June.

London Calling is a gritty musical inspired by music of The Clash based on the events of our lives and others, and a youth spent playing in bands, living in squats and pursuing dreams, in Holland and Canada.

The lyrics of the songs are the dialog, that propel the story forward. A story of aspirations, disappointment and redemption,

The Clash’s impact on a generation can not be disputed, and their music continues to influence and inspire.

Happy Memorial Day:

Eliza Sherman’s Revenge,”  which will make it’s world premiere at the 20th anniversary Dances With Films on June 3rd at 9:30pm at the TCL Chinese Theatres in Hollywood (with green carpet with cast and filmmakers from 9pm-9:30pm) . The feature length film debut from writer/director Gregory Fitzsimmons (“Maybe. Probably.”), and starring Jackie Geary (“13 Reasons Why”), Kristen Miller (“Team America World Police”),  Kiva Jump (“Mad Men”), Mageina Tovah (“Spider-man 2”), Larry Bates (“Big Little Lies”), Jamison Haase (“American Crime Story”), and Mike Rock (“Chelsea Lately”). Newly endowed with special powers, Eliza Sherman lures her old nemeses to the Hollywood Hills under the guise of a birthday party for ’80s heartthrob Richard Grieco. Her plans to punish them go repeatedly awry as her powers prove to be no match for fate. She must conquer her ego and stop screwing up the space-time continuum if she wants to finally win the heart of her one true love.  A pitch-black, supernatural revenge comedy that takes you along for a rapid ride with a running time of 80 minutes. Private screener link available upon request. Many thanks for your consideration as always!

Logline: After a bizarre encounter leaves her with special powers, Eliza Sherman lures her old tormentors to a house in the Hollywood Hills.  Her plans to punish them repeatedly go awry as her powers prove to be no match for fate.  A pitch-black, supernatural revenge comedy.

Synopsis: Ten years ago, Eliza Sherman was humiliated by people she thought were her friends. Now, after an unorthodox encounter, she finds herself newly endowed with special powers.  So she decides to lure her old nemeses to a house in the Hollywood Hills under the guise of a birthday party for ’80s heartthrob Richard Grieco. By spiking the salsa, she brings about a drug induced slumber party — trapping everyone in the house with a good, old-fashioned forcefield.  Battle lines are drawn, and relationships are put to the test.  Eliza’s plans to punish her houseguests repeatedly go awry as her powers prove to be no match for fate.  She must conquer her ego and stop screwing up the space-time continuum if she wants to find peace, and ultimately win the heart of her one true love. It’s twenty-four hours of mayhem, marijuana, Mexican food, and (almost) murder in this pitch-black, supernatural revenge comedy. Forgiveness is overrated.

Festival Screening Time: Saturday, June 3rd at 9:30pm (TCL Chinese Theatres)
