With seven days to go as of this posting, the folks at RiffTrax have exceeded their goal by over $180,000 to secure the rights to riff TWILIGHT. They are hoping to have it in theaters for one night in August 2013. “The only way it could have gone any better was if we had come up with the idea to riff the Veronica Mars movie,” says the update on their Kickstarter update. Mike Nelson, Kevin Murphy, and Bill Corbett were all members of the award-winning TV series MYSTERY SCIENCE THEATER 3000, and they carry that tradition on with the RiffTrax series.
If you’ve never seen them riff a movie live or via simulcast at your local theater then you are missing out. So far I’ve watched PLAN 9 FROM OUTER SPACE, MANOS: THE HANDS OF FATE, and BIRDEMIC. I’ll let you know if this one comes to fruition.
