RLJE Films debuts first trailer for Joe Manganiello-starring Archenemy
Ahead of its debut at this week’s Beyond Fest, RLJE Films has debuted the first full trailer for the Joe Manganiello-starring sci-fi action thriller Archenemy centered on an interdimensional superhero struggling to find his way. The trailer can be viewed in the player below!
Written and directed by Adam Egypt Mortimer (Daniel Isn’t Real) from a story by Mortimer and Lucas Passmore (No Good Heroes), the film stars Joe Manganiello (True Blood), Skylan Brooks (Empire), Zolee Griggs (W-Tang: An American Saga), Paul Scheer (Black Monday), Amy Seimetz (Pet Semetary) and Glenn Howerton (It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia).
“We’re excited to be back in business with SpectreVision after the incredibly successful releases of Mandy and Color Out of Space,” RLJE Films Chief Acquisitions Officer Mark Ward previously said in a statement. “With Joe Manganiello’s strong performance and Adam Egypt Mortimer’s innovative direction, we couldn’t have asked for a better dream team to showcase Archenemy at Beyond Fest and in theaters and various platforms in December.”
In Archenemy, Max Fist (Manganiello) claims to be a hero from another dimension who fell through time and space to Earth, where he has no powers. No one believes his stories except for a local teen named Hamster. Together, they take to the streets to wipe out the local drug syndicate and its vicious crime boss known as The Manager.
Archenemy was produced by SpectreVision’s Daniel Noah, Lisa Whalen, and Elijah Wood along with Kim Sherman, Adam Egypt Mortimer, Joe Manganiello, and Nick Manganiello.
Archenemy will be released in theaters, On Demand, and Digital on December 11, 2020.
