It’s been 15 years since Luc Besson directed his last inarguably great film – THE FIFTH ELEMENT. A tribute to Metal Hurlant magazine (Heavy Metal to us Yanks), STAR WARS and everything in between, THE FIFTH ELEMENT is a perfect piece of ‘90s pop-art bubble gum action spectacle. It’s also a really, really badass movie.
Quiver ladies, quiver - this Sunday, November 18 we’re presenting a rare 35mm screening of THE FIFTH ELEMENT at the Alamo Drafthouse Cinema – Mason Park. Part of the Badass 101 series, co-presented by Badass Digest, this screening promises to awaken that inner badass in you. If you’ve ever jumped around like a spaz – kicking and punching in the air pretending you are Leeloo kicking alien ass to the score of intergalactic opera, you’ve got that badass seed in you just waiting to be nurtured. Pour some water and let that awesomeness grow by attending our screening. You’ll see Bruce Willis as that classic Bruce Willis archetype – smirking, unwitting antihero in over his head. You’ll see Milla Jovovich wrapped in an obscenely skimpy amount of bandages yet still managing to devastate any unlucky space nerd who gets in her way. And yes, you’ll see Chris Tucker as Ruby Rhod, the intergalactic disc jockey you love to hate yet can’t stop quoting. Bzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzt!
THE FIFTH ELEMENT has it all – stellar supporting roles from Gary Oldman, Ian Holm and even Tricky, all manners of ugly aliens and unstoppable evil and gorgeous production designs from renown comic book artists Moebius and Jean-Claude Mezieres.
This screening is only happening one night only so don’t delay in reserving your tickets. Miss out on this screening and the results could be disastrous. Big badda boom.
