To everyone who's going to brave the 9 a.m. show Saturday: Go light on the breakfast, I promise you'll thank me for it.
Craig Chester, co-star Malcolm Gets, actor Chris Kattan of SNL fame, producer Kirkland Tibbels and composer Roddy Bottum attended the screening and subsequent Q&A.
The film opens in 11 cities March 31 and goes wider from there. Palm Springs should see the movie open (probably at Camelot) within the first couple weeks.
When asked about the film’s budget, Craig Chester replied that it was about the same as the chips & salsa budget for King Kong.
Ever wondered what kind of girl the off-the-wall Chris Kattan dates? He showed up with his very cute medium-blonde girlfriend Sunshine who seemed very down-to-earth and normal. Chester took a moment on stage to point her out and tell us how wonderful they all think she is. It was cute.
Malcolm Gets comes from a dance background. He has danced with The Rockettes and A Chorus Line and “all that stuff.”
The film closes with John Lennon’s “Love” which would normally run you about $200,000, but because Yoko Ono is such a big fan of the gay community and a supporter of gay marriage she let them have it for the bargain price of only $5,000.
Courtney Love performs Bottum’s "Love, Love, Love" as a favor.
Blood and Bones screens again at 1:45 p.m. Sunday, Regal Palm Springs.
