Mall, the debut feature film by Joe Hahn of Linkin Park, will have an exclusive Nerd HQ screening at Zachary Levi and The Nerd Machine's 5th annual Nerd HQ event.
Taking place at San Diego's Petco Park, the limited availability screening of Joe Hahn's thriller will be held on July 24, blasting off minutes after Linkin Park exits stage left from the mtvU Fandom Awards performance.
The screening will be immediately followed by a "Conversations for a Cause" Q&A panel featuring Hahn, producer Sam Maydew (Silver Lining Entertainment), composer Alec Puro and other cast members.
This is one film that we definitely want to see when it goes wide.
Want the intel?
Mall boasts a cast including Vincent D'Onofrio (who pulls triple duty as star/producer/screenwriter), Gina Gershon (Killer Joe), Cameron Monaghan (TV's Shameless), Peter Stormare (Fargo) and James Frecheville (Animal Kingdom). Seen through the eyes of Jeff (played by Monaghan), the film examines a group of disgruntled suburbanites who find themselves at a shopping mall in the midst of a seemingly random shooting, and whose lives are positively transformed as a result.
It's very topical and sounds like an engrossing piece of slice-of-life cinema. Sign us up.
As any self-respecting rock fan knows, Hahn is responsible for the beats, programming and keyboard heard in Linkin Park. He has also directed as many as 30 of the band's ground-breaking music videos, and over a dozen short films and music videos for other musical acts.
We are very excited about his foray into feature films. He has a terrific eye.
Who is planning to check out Mall?
