Halo-8 Entertainment and the Napa Valley Film Festival are co-hosting a special NYC advanced screening of “Warren Ellis: Captured Ghosts” at the downtown NYC theater Cinema Village (22 E 12th St NYC 10003) on Friday October 14th at 11:15pm. Tickets are $11 adults, $8 student, and Halo-8 is also offering a $20 bundle which includes a preorder of the DVD (to ship for delivery on street date in February 2012). Ghosts is currently scheduled to officially premiere November 11th at the Napa Valley Film Festival, but the NVFF organizers made a special exception to co-present this advanced screening for fans attending New York Comic Con.
Bloody Disgusting scored an exclusive clip that focuses on the controversial Warren Ellis written “Hellblazer” comic that resulted in Ellis leaving DC altogether rather than have his work altered.
Ghosts features the most extensive interview ever given by Ellis, whose groundbreaking body of work includes comic books “Planetary,” “Transmetropolitan,” “Iron Man: Extremis,” “FreakAngels,” “The Authority” and novel “Crooked Little Vein.” Spanning from his first memory watching the moon landing as a child to the recent boffo success of RED, Ellis’ acerbic wit and core belief in humanity come across like never before… revealing the unique point of view that has made him such a pivotal and influential figure to his massive audience of artists, journalists, scientists, and fans.
