On February 24, we're bringing two new releases from Drafthouse Films to Houston: BULLHEAD, an Aacedemy Award-nominee for Best Foreign Film, and COMIN' AT YA! 3D, a thirtieth anniversary digital resoration of the classic western that helped usher in the 3D craze of the '80s. Before the films open, though, you'll get a chance to preview them for free this week.

BULLHEAD, a Belgium film from director Michael R. Roskam, stars Matthias Schoenaerts as Jacky Vanmasenille, a domineering cattle farmer who spends his life pumped on steroids and hormones after a debilitating childhood injury. When he enters into a shady deal with a notoriously currupt meat trader, Jacky must confront his inner demons and face the far-reaching consequences of his decisssions. The film is nominated for an Academy Award for Best Foreign Film. You can catch a free sneak preview of the film this Thursday at 7:30 PM at West Oaks.

Comin' At Ya! 3D has been fully restored for its 30th anniversary. Producer/star Tony Anthony and Italian genre film vetern Ferdinando Baldi teamed up in 1981 to release the first-ever 3D spaghetti-western. Now, the film has been remastered in high-definition utilizing state-of-the-art RealD 3D technology. Anthony stars as a vengeful gunslinger on a mission to resuce his wife from a gang of bandits. You'll get flying fists, arrows, snakes and even naked babies shoved in your face as the film pushes the limits of what 3D movies can and should get away with. You won't ever have this much fun in a 3D movie. Guaranteed. You can catch a sneak preview of the film this Wednesday at 7:30 PM at Mason Park. 

Seating for both sneak previews is first come, first seated. Show up early to ensure seating for the event. For more information about the films, visit Drafthouse Films on the web at drafthousefilms.com
