It was recently announced that the opening night of Fantastic Fest 2023 will have the world premiere of Legendary Pictures’ THE TOXIC AVENGER. The new movie will be an action-packed reimagining of the classic Troma film from director Macon Blair that features an all-star cast including Peter Dinklage, who will pick up the infamous mop to become the toxic hero that no one knew they needed (or wanted) as well as Jacob Tremblay and Taylour Paige with Elijah Wood and Kevin Bacon.
The original “The Toxic Avenger” came out in the mid 8o’s and helped put Troma on the map as a top independent movie production company. “The Toxic Avenger” follows a horrible toxic accident that transforms downtrodden janitor Winston Gooze into a new evolution of hero: The Toxic Avenger! We hope that this take on “The Toxic Avenger” will help bring back more of that 80’s ooze to the mainstream.
Fantastic Fest takes place in Austin, Texas SEPTEMBER 21ST – SEPTEMBER 28TH. Check out their website for all the films and schedules https://fantasticfest.com/
