A cult hit of the year, Archenemy has announced it is getting a physical release date on February 16th.
Written and directed by Adam Egypt Mortimer (Daniel Isn’t Real, Some Kind of Hate), ARCHEMENY stars Joe Manganiello (“True Blood”), Skylan Brooks (“Empire”), Zolee Griggs (“Wu-Tang: An American Saga”), Paul Scheer (“Black Monday”), Amy Seimetz (Pet Semetary) and Glenn Howerton (“It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia”). RLJE Films will release ARCHENEMY on DVD for an SRP of $27.97 and on Blu-ray for an SRP of $28.96.
In ARCHENEMY, Max Fist (Joe Manganiello) is a local drunk who claims to be a superhero from the planet Chromium. He tells anyone who will listen that he was pulled into a wormhole, falling through time and space, and dropped to earth without any of his powers. No one pays any attention to Max except a teenager named Hamster (Skylan Brooks) who can’t get enough of Max’s stories. When Hamster and his sister (Zolee Griggs) get in trouble with a vicious drug syndicate led by The Manager (Glenn Howerton), Max takes to the streets as a brutal vigilante hellbent on proving himself as the hero no one believes him to be.
I for one, didn’t totally fall in love with Archenemy but it did have its moments including a stellar Glenn Howerton who was spectacularly evil and makes his Dennis character from its always Sunny in Philadelphia look soft! The always solid Joe Manganiello.
ARCHENEMY DVD and Blu-ray include the following bonus features:
