REMAKESPLOITATION presents: STARSPLOITATION incl. Battle Beyond the Stars
Thu 4 May 2017, 19:00 – 22:00 BST
What better way to celebrate 'Star Wars Day' on May 4th than with the Remakesploitation crew watching clips from some of the most insane Star Wars rip-offs! Did you know that there was an Italian rip-off of Star Wars starring the legend that is David Hasselhoff? Or that the Brazilian comedy troupe Os Trapalhões battled with Darth Vader in their own unlicensed reworking of the Lucas franchise? Or that Turkish director Çetin İnanç 'borrowed' and reused actual footage from Star Wars in his film The Man Who Saves the World?
This will be followed by a full screening of Roger Corman's infamous Battle Beyond the Stars -- a Star Wars meets Seven Samurai hybrid that brings together the collective talents of John Sayles, James Horner, Sybil Danning and even James Cameron in a trashy, loveable B-movie delight.
The venue is the world's #1 martial arts themed bar, Pimp Shuei, and the night will be filled with culty fun and adventures.
Dress up*, bring your light sabers and celebrate the trashier side of Star Wars with the Remakesploitation team.
Tickets are only £5 and numbers are limited!
* Prizes for the best costumes will be awarded on the night.
