After teasing fans last week with news of an announcement today, July 1st, Rob Zombie has revealed the official release date and poster art for coming film 3 From Hell. The unrated version of the final film in the Firefly family trilogy will be arriving on September 16th, 17th and 18th via Fathom's Digital Broadcast Network at nearly 900 theaters.
Bloody Disgusting reports that each night of the three-day screening will feature a separate special event. Night one includes a broadcast introduction from the director himself with the first 50 viewers through the door to receive a special poster, night two contains a special half hour behind-the-scenes documentary, and the final night is a double feature of the new film and its predecessor The Devil's Rejects.
"This event is a long time coming," Zombie said in a statement to the press. "The journey of these characters has always been special to me and I am thrilled to finally let the fans experience the next episode of the Firefly madness. This project was a true labor of love for everyone involved and we know we have created something amazing for the loyal followers of these films."
The movie will be released via Lionsgate and Saban films, a boutique distribution company formed in 2014 who previously worked with Zombie on his previous film, 31. Tickets for the Fathom Events screening go on sale to the general public July 19th at this location, where you can sign up to be alerted the second they're available.
