cheap pirated versions of major Hollywood films.
These mockbusters are immediately released on DVD, even before the
original movies screen in cinemas. Besides a large number of claims and lawsuits, the studio also enjoys a large fan base.
The Asylum’s way of working fits perfectly with the central theme of this year’s Incubate; piracy in the arts. Besides various readings and discussions on the subject, Incubate has also compiled a very diverse film program around this theme under the title ‘Pirate Cinema‘.
Watch an interview we did with David Rimawi (Sales and Distribution at The Asylum) on their company, there method of production, business model and piracy below:
During the festival week visitors can enjoy the pirated counterparts of The Da Vinci Code, Snakes on a Plane, Transformers and Alien vs. Predator among others. One of the highlights is the European movie premiere of Titanic II. The film premieres in the U.S. on August 24 and will be featured in a cinema in Europe for the first time during the Incubate festival on Thursday, September 16.
