Jurors at the Tallgrass Festival in Kansas this year have honored Chris with the Outstanding Male Actor award for his film I Hate The Man In My Basement. The film also won the Stubbornly Independent competition this year.
Chris Marquette turns 33 today. Wishing him a grand birthday!
Chris’s film I Hate The Man In My Basement has been chosen as one of the four films in Tallgrass’s flagship Stubbornly Independent competition. Along with 20 Weeks, Blur Circle, and Bomb City, the film is going to be juried by a panel of industry professionals. The Stubbornly Independent award is given in his honor to an independent film or filmmaker who takes risks and isn’t afraid to tell important stories, and does all of this within the ultra-low budget of $500,000 or less.
The 15th annual Tallgrass Film Festival takes place October 18-22, 2017 in Wichita, Kansas. More information can be found on the Tallgrass website.
The trailer for one of Chris’s new movies, Parker’s Anchor is now up on Vimeo.
Great news for all the American Chris fans: The 10-episode adult comedy web-series All Wrong that stars Chris as the lead character is now available for streaming on Vice Video in the US. Please note that it is rated R for sexual content.
Another one of Chris’s projects, the feature film I Hate The Man In My Basement is starting to screen at American film festivals. In April, it will be shown at the Newport Beach Film Festival. The screening takes place at the Island Cinema on April 22, 2017 at 8 pm, the cost for the ticket is $15. More information can be found on the festival website.
Good news for all Canadian Chris fans. One of his latest movies, Chokeslam, opens in select Canadian theaters on April 7, 2017. A release date for other markets is currently not known.
Wishing everyone a lovely Christmas time and all the best for 2017!
It’s been a while that we’ve posted any Chris-related news, so here’s the latest and greatest that you may have missed in the last few months:
TeeJay has seen this one, and Chris’s role is very small. If you’re only watching for Chris, then it might not be worth your while.
TeeJay has seen this one (on the big screen at a film festival, even), and it’s funny and definitely worth watching. If you enjoyed Infestation, then Night of the Living Deb will very likely also be right up your alley. Chris’s role isn’t super huge, but he’s in it a fair bit. And he’s hilarious. He does comedy so well.
….. Always Watching: A Marble Hornets Story, another horror movie, is out on VOD.
TeeJay has seen this one, it’s probably the creepiest, most spine-chilling thing she’s watched in years. It builds a very subtle, yet gripping suspense that may make you not want to switch your lights off at night. Chris plays one of the main characters.
TeeJay and Deb have both seen this one, and opinions differ. It’s certainly a more brainy movie that you need to pay attention to in order to grasp its ins and outs. Chris plays one of the leads, so he’s in it a lot, and he does really amazing, emotional work in it.
….. Chris has been or will be shooting new movies that aren’t out yet.
….. Chris still has his Instagram account and posts photos and videos there every now and then.
….. Last but not least, we’ve made some updates to the chris-marquette.com gallery and the video section.
According to bloody-disgusting.com, the North American rights for the indie Night of the Living Deb, that Chris has a guest role in, have been bought by MPI/Dark Sky Films at this year’s Berlin Film Festival. The movie is set to premiere in the US in September.
The Dark Sky Films Twitter has also confirmed that they will be releasing the movie on VOD/DVD/Blu-ray in 2016.
