Re: Official MST3K / Rifftrax / Cinematic Titanic DVD Thread

A bit late in posting this here, but here's Joel's May 31st announcement of the new tour (which is his personal last, but not the last MST3K Live tour because he promises Jonah will do the next one)...

( FROM THIS LINK: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects.../posts/2524240 )

Dear MST3K Revival League,

Hey again, it's Joel. And just like I promised in the last update, I’ve got some big news that I've been looking forward to sharing with all of you!

This September, we’ll be back with an all-new MST3K LIVE tour!

That's right! We're hitting the road again to bring you to two more brand-new shows, with two "new" (old) cheesy movies, and this time, we're coming to at least twice as many cities as ever before! So, step right up, as MST3K LIVE presents... "The Great Cheesy Movie Circus Tour"

To see all of the dates and cities, and to purchase tickets, just go here! ( https://mst3klive.com )

Also, we're adding new venues every week, so if you don’t see your town yet, keep checking back!

I should also tell you that this tour is very special to me, because this will be my final national tour as host. So yeah, I'm hoping to have the opportunity to meet as many of you as I can during my final circuit on the road. Don’t worry, though: that doesn't mean it's the end of MST3K, or MST3K LIVE! Jonah is in his holding-pen and deeply involved creatively with this tour as a writer and riff producer too. (Also… he’s promised me he’ll go out on the next tour!)

Anyway, for this tour, we are featuring two completely weird, completely cheesy films:

"No Retreat, No Surrender"
A self-conscious teen becomes a martial arts master under the tutelage of Bruce Lee’s ghost. Featuring fresh-faced Jean-Claude Van Damme as a brooding hit man and a Bruce Lee lookalike, who looks nothing like Bruce Lee.

"Circus of Horrors"
A garish 1960s British thriller showcasing mod circus acts, plastic surgery, and animal attacks by stagehands in fur suits. Warning: Features the pop hit “Look for a Star” over and over again.


Also, on the last few tours, we weren't able to give you a "real-time" look behind the scenes of the tour… but this time, I'm happy to report that our new touring partner is really excited to have us share more of the creative process.

So, I'm happy to tell you that, for this tour, we'll actually be sharing weekly updates on our brand new tour site, at MST3KLIVE.com! And in fact, I'm even more excited to tell you that...

You can check out the first Behind-The-Scenes TOUR UPDATE right now! ( https://mst3klive.com/2019/06/move-in-day/ )

I just made it last Friday while we were moving in. This first one will give you a brief tour of our development workshop where we will be building the sets, props, robots and costumes over the next three months, as well as a look at the writing process on the two newest additions to the ongoing MST3K story.

So, yeah. That's the new tour we've got planned. Pretty exciting, right?


That's pretty much all for today, but I also want you to know that we're still in discussions about the future of Mystery Science Theater 3000, and making more seasons. There's no official news yet, because we're focusing most of our attention on preparing for the tour, but as soon as there's something else to share, I'll be sure to tell you.

But, you know... now is a great time to grab your tickets to join us this fall!

Cheers and Thanks!

Joel

Re: Official MST3K / Rifftrax / Cinematic Titanic DVD Thread

So this news comes out just before Turkey Day, and their marathon. Now, this could be just blind optimism but....'

What if they knew about the Netflix cancellation for a while, but held off on the announcement, so that they could work out a new deal for a new season without Netflix, whether on another service or going solo or something. Then they announce the Netflix cancellation just a few days before Thanksgiving so that people are bummed, but not for too long, because at the end of the Turkey Day marathon they announce, SURPRISE, a third season is still coming!

Netflix is starting to piss me off. Don’t buy up properties for a quick viewer jump and then drop them after a couple of seasons. They buy the rights to shows like Friends and The Office, with ten season runs but won’t invest in their own things.

It looks like the Turkey Day Marathon isn't being streamed on Youtube this year. I don't see a stream, and it's already started.

From https://shoutfactorytvlive.com/the-m...-marathon-2019
WHERE TO WATCH: MST3KTurkeyDay.com, the Shout! Factory TV app (Roku, Amazon, Apple TV, etc.), Twitch, Pluto TV (Channel 385), Stirr, Samsung TV Plus, Xumo and more!

The 2020 Rifftrax Kickstarter has launched. They're doing a re-riff of Hobgoblins and Amityville Horror 4:

Do we're down to just 2 movies now? Is that all that we get for the whole year?

Yeah, they did two in 2018 as well. Last year they did three, but one of them was just recorded and broadcast at a later date. My guess it's either a problem with Fathom's schedule, or the company the produces the live shows.

Re: Official MST3K / Rifftrax / Cinematic Titanic DVD Thread

The Rifftrax Kickstarter ends this evening. For $1 you get 10 shorts and a new song based on one of the movies theyíre riffing this year (Ammityville Horror 4 and Hobgoblins). If you already own some of the shorts, youíll get $1 in Rifftrax credit for each one you own.

All the money-based stretch goals have been unlocked, but there are still a few stretch goals based on the backer number left.

I wonder if they'll be able to actually have these events in theaters this year. The first one isn't until June, but the way things are going theaters may still be closed. I wonder if they could transition to a live stream. Fathom@home?

Re: Official MST3K / Rifftrax / Cinematic Titanic DVD Thread

The MST3K twitter said on 4/1 they’ll be able to stream some episodes they’ve never been able to stream before. Maybe that means some of the 11 episodes they haven’t been able to release, or it could be some episodes they’ve released on DVD, but not for streaming/digital (like the Universal titles or Danger Diabolik).

And semi-MST3K related, there’s a Manos: The Hands of Fate Trading cards Kickstarter going on by the guy who did the MST3K 1-3 trading card sets.

My prediction is the June 11th one will be delayed and that they may even just double-up and riff both movies on consecutive nights in October as they did for 2 of the movies last year.

Hobgoblins has been rescheduled for August 6th, though in Rifftrax's email they stressed it was a tentative date. They'll monitor the situation and if the theaters aren't fully up and running by then, they'll push it back again.

Also, there's a 20% off sale on all of their live shows at their site, until Thursday.
