From Bubba Ho-Tep to Hap and Leonard  and for all of the fans that have followed along throughout Joe R Lansdale's storied career,  All Hail The Popcorn King the  documentary  is something of a monument.  

This is a film that we can all get excited about!

Joe's unique voice has spanned multiple genres and been adapted for film and TV.  He has supported and collaborated with generations of writers, filmmakers and fans. Our film celebrates his contributions to Pop Culture through interviews with his many colleagues, fans and collaborators.  

The interview line-up looks like the invitation list to the All-Time Genre Luminaries Conference, and it includes:

* Bruce Campbell

* F Paul Wilson

* Mick Garris

* David J Schow

* Chet Williamson

* Keith, Kasey & Karen & Pamela Lansdale

* Brian Keene

* Judy Pancoast

* Jeani Rector

* Austin Holt

* Del Howison

* Yuri Lowenthal

* Andy Rausch

* Chuck Wiser

* Matt Venne

* Nick Damici

* Joe Hill

*James Purefoy

*Amber Benson

*Don Coscarelli

*Rick Klaw

*Christopher Moore

*Chad Lutzke

*ER Bills

*Susan Leighton

*Ann Collins Smith

Joe himself has collaborated with our team on this documentary, and he has generously granted us access to invaluable interviews and materials from his private collection.

We can't wait to give The Popcorn King a grand salute with this premiere, but to do that, we need your help.

Our goal through this campaign is to raise $2,000, which will cover the costs of  booking Austin's Alamo Draft House Cinema for a once-in-a-lifetime premiere screening of the documentary and a post film celebration with Joe's friends and family.

To reward our contributors you will receive:

*Exclusive access to tickets before the general public.

* Live streaming of the event

*Special access to extras from the the interviews and footage not used in the film.

*Donors who contribute $50 will receive a digital copy of the film.

*Donors who contribute $100 or more will receive a limited edition copy of the DVD.

The screening and celebration will be held at the Alamo Draft House, Slaughter Lane, Austin August 18th 2019 1-4 PM. Joe and his family will be there to chat with guests.
More information on the donor pre-sale and merchandise packages to be announced  on 5/15/19.

Hope to see you all  in Austin!
