Balls of Fury

Filed under: Film, Personal — SFG @ 16:36

I’ve posted about this before on my previous blog, but as I haven’t mentioned it here before, and there’s now an exhibition date of the 29th of August (though that may be in the States – I’m not even sure if it’ll get a cinema screening over here *sigh*).
Anyway, check out the official site

Now, most people that have visited my website and specifically the About Me page, will know that I am a Def Leppard fan and, that being the case, this was too good an opportunity to pass up.

Balls of Fury is a film starring Dan Fogler and Christopher Walken, and has been described on the news page as “If you like Def Leppard and Christopher Walken in nail polish, you’ll like this!”
Def Leppard figures heavily into the fabric of the film. Several tracks will be featured, and Fogler sports a Leppard T-shirt during much of the film.

Some images from the film are below.

A washed-up ping-pong champion must reclaim his skills after being recruited by the government to go undercover and bust a crime lord, who hosts an annual ping-pong tournament in which all the losers are executed.

The trailer can bee seen on the Yahoo! movies page, but I have conviently provided the QuickTime trailer links below.
