Drafthouse Films’ COMIN’ AT YA! 3D Gets A New Trailer And A Texas Release Date

See the brand new trailer for COMIN' AT YA! 3D, a wild, rousing, three-dimensional spaghetti western explosion that throws fiery arrows, punches, breasts, bats, cowboy corpses and diapers (?!) at your face as you sit in stunned, satisfied silence. The film, from producer and star Tony Anthony and Italian genre film vet Ferdinando Baldi, astonished audiences when it was first released in 1981, and a recent, digitally restored version blew us away at Fantastic Fest last year. The film was such a raucous success that Drafthouse Films acquired the North American rights to distribute the insanity to a Texas theater near you. From the press release:

AUSTIN, TX – Friday, February 3, 2012 – Drafthouse Films’ COMIN’ AT YA! 3D gets an exclusive Texas launch on February 24.  The film was acquired by the Alamo Drafthouse’s distribution label following the world premiere at Fantastic Fest 2011.  An indie sensation in the 1980s, the film was credited with igniting a resurgence of studio-produced 3D films. And now, COMIN’ AT YA! 3D marks the first fully restored classic 3D film using state-of-the-art RealD technology.

COMIN’ AT YA! 3D is the kind of experience you can only get in a theater, and we’re proud to offer it to our home state first,” said Drafthouse Films founder and CEO Tim League.

A tale of a vengeful gunslinger determined to rescue his kidnapped wife from a gang of ruthless bandits, COMIN’ AT YA! 3D is the 3D movie that does exactly what you want a 3D movie to do.  It hits you with a ludicrous barrage of flying fists, flaming arrows, boobs, and everything else you can imagine.  It’s pure, unadulterated fun all the way through, mimicking the experience of an amusement park ride. Called “a lof of fun” (Film School Rejects) and “a great experience & 3D showcase” (HitFix) COMIN’ AT YA! 3D is a crowd-pleasing event with the most insane, unsubtle 3D gimmicks known to man.
