Still fairly impressive that a small, independent film of this nature is getting this much of a marketing push. BLOOD OF REDEMPTION, AMBUSHED, or PUNCTURE WOUNDS certainly didn’t get this kind of treatment.

Flanery's name has top billing yet he seems to play a supporting role as well.

My theory is that the movie was framed for 2.39:1 cinemascope and not 1.78 (16/9).

I cropped the watched the trailer in 2.39 with VLC the other day and the it looked much much better.

You can tell in 1.78 that there is way too much room and empty space because it's not supposed to be in the frame, it also makes the digital image more obvious.

Another interview episode is here, this time chatting with Daniel Zirilli, co-director on ACCELERATION! This conversation actually happened back in June, so the details surrounding ACCELERATION were still fairly under wraps, but Zirilli sure had plenty to say regarding making action movies in the current market! Enjoy!

yeah, we framed for scope on set, so maybe it was a distribution thing...
