DOUBLE BILL OF BEST WORST MOVIE AND TROLL 2 HITS THEATRES NATIONWIDE OCTOBER 7

Toronto, September 24, 2010 - Union Pictures today announced that on October 7, 2010, Canadians will have a one-time opportunity to enjoy the critically acclaimed feature documentary BEST WORST MOVIE and the cult classic TROLL 2 back to back, on the big screen

Already being hailed as one of the “top reviewed films of 2010″ by Rotten Tomatoes, BEST WORST MOVIE, directed by Michael Paul Stephenson, follows a small-town dentist and a self-deluded Italian filmmaker as they struggle to come to grips with their role in what is arguably the worst movie ever made: TROLL 2.

The double bill will screen on Thursday, October 7 in Cineplex Entertainment theatres in Toronto, Vancouver, Montreal, Calgary, Edmonton, Winnipeg, Ottawa, Saskatoon, Regina, Victoria, Kingston, and London and in Empire Theatres in St. John’s, Halifax, New Glasgow, and Moncton. Director of BEST WORST MOVIE and child-actor of TROLL 2, Michael Paul Stephenson and actor George Hardy will be in attendance at the Toronto premiere for this exclusive, one-night engagement. Other special guests will be in attendance for the premiere in major markets. After October 7, the films will continue to play independent theatres across Canada.

To celebrate the release of BEST WORST MOVIE, Union Pictures has joined forces with Birthplace Inc., a creative and media innovation company, to create an online campaign celebrating the best worst content found all across the web. The website, www.bestworst.ca, features best worst photos, videos and links, as well as information on BEST WORST MOVIE, including the official trailer, show times and how to purchase tickets.

“When we saw BEST WORST MOVIE we knew, with its perfect balance of humour, sadness and inspiration, it would be a film that would be appealing to movie-goers across Canada,” said Cam Haynes, CEO of Union Pictures. “Our launch of a one-night-only engagement with the director in attendance is unprecedented for a theatrical release and the perfect way to experience both films.”

About BEST WORST MOVIE
In this hilarious and heartfelt story about the strange nature of celebrity, a sunny small town dentist and a self-deluded Italian filmmaker struggle to come to grips with their role in the worst movie ever made. The result, directed by Troll 2’s child star, Michael Paul Stephenson, is a tender offbeat journey that pays homage to lovers of bad movies and the people who make them, while investigating a deeper story about the catharsis of redemption and the humanity that exists in making even the worst movie ever made.
