One of our favorite distributors MVD is set to bring the superhero black comedy AMERICAN RESCUE SQUAD to home entertainment on May 19th. While most of you will be following the huge hero movie that debuts this weekend we get a chance to get a glimpse on the not so popular side of being a hero. When some new villains show up a retired hero working as a janitor assembles (see what we did there?) a bunch of other retired heros to take action. Take a glance at the poster and a few stills and get ready for more on Elliot Diviney’s AMERICAN RESCUE SQUAD soon.
A group of mysterious villains known as “The Alliance” sets a trap for the Taxpayer. They imprison him, torture him, and make plans to publicly crucify him. Local janitor Richard Randolph rounds up retired Superheroes, and hatches a plan to rescue the Taxpayer. The villains stage a public rally, where many citizens come to watch the Taxpayer’s crucifixion. The heroes invade the bad guy lair, and a large battle ensues. Various comedic and action-packed musical numbers are intertwined throughout the madness. In the midst of the big political debate and battle for mankind will the heroes save the day?
Written by Elliot and Adam Diviney, directed by Elliot Diviney; starring Tony D. Czech, Douglas Sidney, and KariAnn Craig.
