If you love over-the-top 80's action movies, you need to take a deep breath right now, and then you need to watch this.
KUNG FURY is a visually-stunning, 30-minute-long, 80's action comedy masterpiece, written and directed by Sweden's David Sandberg of Laser Unicorns. It's jam packed with time-hacking 80's techno-geeks, uzi-toting vikings, exploding deloreans, anarchist arcade machines, kung-foolery, and enough classic techno to BLOW.. YOUR.. MIND!! And that's just the trailer!
Sandberg started the project in 2012 with a shoestring budget of $5,000, which he invested himself. Working in his spare time with the help of friends, they filmed the majority of the movie in front of a green screen in a cramped office space in Sweden. Late 2013 the project was put on Kickstarter and had enormous success. In only thirty days it's funding had exceeded the $200,000 post-production goal, landing a whopping $630,000 from over 17,700 backers.
Since then it's gained momentum with a number of notable names, including David Hastlehoff, getting involved. Despite some setbacks, this epic ode to the era of action awesomness is now ready for release! So, put down your boombox, zip up your studded leather jacket, and hold on to your perm, this thing is about to happen!
Oh, and did I mention it'll be free?
