THE MAN WHO KILLED HITLER AND THEN THE BIGFOOT
World Premiere: Fantasia International Film Festival 2018
The 22nd edition of Montreal’s Fantasia International Film Festival is immensely proud to host the World Premiere of Robert D. Krzykowski’s THE MAN WHO KILLED HITLER AND THEN THE BIGFOOT on July 20th, 2018.
Screen legend Sam Elliott (TOMBSTONE, ROAD HOUSE) stars as Calvin Barr, a legendary World War II veteran who many years ago assassinated Adolf Hitler – an incredible secret that he’s frustratingly unable to share with the world. One day, just as he’s coming to terms with rounding out his life, Calvin gets a visit from the FBI and Royal Canadian Mounted Police. They need him to take out Bigfoot.
A wondrous feature debut from writer/director Robert D. Krzykowski, featuring visual effects by celebrated two-time Academy Award Winner Douglas Trumbull (2001: A SPACE ODYSSEY, BLADE RUNNER), who also co-produced alongside genre icons John Sayles and Lucky McKee.
A fantastical discourse on the melancholia of old age and a singular blast of entertaining wit, THE MAN WHO KILLED HITLER AND THEN THE BIGFOOT also stars Aidan Turner, Caitlin FitzGerald, Ron Livingston, and Larry Miller.
THE MAN WHO KILLED HITLER AND THEN THE BIGFOOT celebrates its World Premiere at Montreal’s Auditorium des Diplômés de la SGWU at 9:30PM on July 20th, with actor Sam Elliott and director Robert D. Krzykowski in attendance.
