Vertigo Releasing has announced that George Kane’s End-of-the-world clown comedy Apocalypse Clown will be released in cinemas across the UK on 1st September.
The news comes ahead of the film’s sold-out world premiere screening at the Galway Film Fleadh and its North American premiere at Fantasia International Film Festival in Quebec this month.
Filmed on location in Ireland, APOCALYPSE CLOWN tells the tale of a troupe of failed clowns and an ambitious reporter who embark on a chaotic adventure of self-discovery after a mysterious solar event plunges the world into anarchy.
Directed by BAFTA-nominated George Kane (Crashing, Disney’s Wedding Season) APOCALYPSE CLOWN was written by Shane O’Brien, James Walmsley and Demian Fox from the multi-award-winning, Irish comedy outfit Dead Cat Bounce.
The film features hilarious performances from David Earl (Brian & Charles, After Life), Natalie Palamides (Nate — A One Man Show), Amy De Bhrún (The Bachelor Weekend), Fionn Foley (Dublin Oldschool), Tadhg Murphy (Brassic) and Ivan Kaye (Gunpowder Milkshake).
