"Live like a king. Die like a man."

Once upon a time in the middle of a deep dark factory, an average Joe lived a very boring life until one day he found out his life was over...and that’s when his adventure began.

Tom Hanks, Meg Ryan, Lloyd Bridges, Robert Stack, Ossie Davis, Abe Vigoda, and Nathan Lane in an adventure romantic comedy with shopping montages, shipwrecks and references to Fritz Lang and Georges Méliès. JOE VS. THE VOLCANO could quite possibly be the perfect movie.

It’s a  movie unlike anything you’ve seen before, it’s a movie that takes chances. It’s at times dark, bleak, full of wonder, spectacular wit, insane turns and heart bursting romance. This is a movie that takes you on an adventure and makes you giddy with the excitement of what could come next. It lives in it’s own world and creates it’s own rules and makes you believe in fantasy again.

It takes Joe to learn he is dying before finding out how to live and appreciate life, but thankfully Academy Award winner John Patrick Shanley (Moonstruck) has provided you with 100-minutes of cinematic bliss to remind you how good life can be without all the terminal illness to bog you down. Lift that brain-cloud from your life and set sail for high adventure in 35mm with plenty of orange soda for all. BANGARANG! (Greg MacLennan)
