After Last Season Is Really Opening This Friday?!

Is it really true? Two months ago, when the trailer to After Last Season became an internet sensation, the supposed release date of June 5th seemed far enough away to add more head-scratching mystery to the situation. Well, ladies and gentlemen, in case you haven’t checked your calendar, this coming Friday is June 5th. And according to the After Last Season website, the film is indeed scheduled to open in four incomprehensibly lucky cities this weekend:

Lancaster, CA

North Aurora, IL

Rochester, NY

Austin, TX

I am planning to be in Rhode Island for the duration of Newport International Film Festival, but I’m seriously contemplating skipping out early Sunday morning and driving the 7.5 hours to Rochester to see it for myself.

If anyone is attending these screenings, please comment here to confirm or deny if this is indeed a masterful inside joke or if that cardboard M.R.I. machine is presented with genuine sincerity. Which will it be? Will it really be? Will it?

Life is strange…

Michael Tully is an award-winning writer/director whose films have garnered widespread critical acclaim, his projects having premiered at some of the most renowned film festivals across the globe. He is also the former (and founding) editor of this site. In 2006, Michael's first feature, COCAINE ANGEL, chronicling a tragic week in the life of a young drug addict, world premiered at the International Film Festival Rotterdam. The film immediately solidified the director as one of Filmmaker Magazine’s "25 New Faces of Independent Film,” a reputation that was reinforced a year later when his follow-up feature, SILVER JEW, a documentary capturing the late David Berman's rare musical performances in Tel Aviv, world-premiered at SXSW and landed distribution with cult indie-music label Drag City. In 2011, Michael wrote, directed, and starred in his third feature, SEPTIEN, which debuted at the 27th annual Sundance Film Festival before being acquired by IFC Films' Sundance Selects banner. A few years later, in 2014, Michael returned to Sundance with the world premiere of his fourth feature, PING PONG SUMMER, an ‘80s set coming-of-age tale that was quickly picked up for theatrical distribution by Gravitas Ventures. In 2018, Michael wrote and directed the dread-inducing genre film DON'T LEAVE HOME, which has been described as "Get Out with Catholic guilt in the Irish countryside" (IndieWire). The film premiered at SXSW and was subsequently acquired by Cranked Up Films and Shudder.
