CooperEagle Rock Entertainment, in association with Banger Films, has announced the world premiere of “Super Duper Alice Cooper” at the 2014 Tribeca Film Festival (TFF), presented by AT&T, where it will screen as part of their Spotlight section. Taking us through his life and career, Alice presents his story in the first-ever “doc opera” film — a dizzying blend of documentary archive footage, animation, and rock opera.

Entertainment Weekly has revealed very first exclusive clip of never-before seen footage from the film. Check it out below.

Filmmaker Reginald Harkema comments on the segment: “This clip shows the exciting momentum the Alice Cooper group gets swept up in when their iconic teen anthem ‘I’m Eighteen’ turns them into overnight sensations. The song ‘Caught In A Dream‘ self-referentially soundtracks a swirl of images including limousines, gold records, airplanes, and lunatic teenagers.”

“Super Duper Alice Cooper” will hit theaters nationwide beginning April 30. It is presented by Banger Films, in association with Eagle Rock Entertainment, and distributed to theaters and venues by SpectiCast. Dates and locations are listed below. Continue reading »

Cooper

The official trailer for “Super Duper Alice Cooper”, the upcoming documentary about the shock rocker’s evolution from preacher’s son to superstardom, can be seen below. The 97-minute retrospective on Alice Cooper is the latest release from Canadian documentarians Sam Dunn and Scot McFadyen of production company Banger Films [“Metal: A Headbangers Journey”, “Rush: Beyond The Lighted Stage”] and writer/director Reginald Harkema.

“Super Duper Alice Cooper” is the twisted tale of a teenage Dr. Jekyll whose rock and roll Mr. Hyde almost kills him. It is the story of Vincent Furnier, preacher’s son, who struck fear into the hearts of parents as Alice Cooper, the ultimate rock star of the bizarre. From the advent of Alice as frontman for a group of Phoenix freaks in the ’60s to the hazy decadence of celebrity in the ’70s to his triumphant comeback as ’80s glam metal godfather, we will watch as Alice and Vincent battle for each other’s souls. The film is the first-ever “doc opera” — a dizzying blend of documentary archive footage, animation and rock opera that will cement forever the legend of Alice Cooper.

A DVD release is scheduled for the end of 2014. We would love to have released the DVD at an earlier stage, however, due to TV and film festival regulations, late 2014 is the earliest we can do it.  Continue reading »
