Los Angeles, CA, March 05, 2019 --(PR.com
)-- There’s no shortage of superheroes in today’s landscape. From movies to video games to television, we can expect a caped, masked rescuer to make an appearance in our daily lives. However, there’s still an absence of minority heroes; someone that African American children can admire. The company D Fault Entertainment intends to change that with their film, “Bizarre Man: The Jingle Bell Battle.”
Written and animated by the company's CEO, Dandrell Scott, the film looks to provide a different take on the superhero genre and black cartoons in general. In recent times, minorities have been subjugated to negative images, violence, and misbeliefs. However, Bizarre Man proves that black art is still alive and well, as urban youth can see positive reinforcements of themselves on the big screen. “Bizarre Man: The Jingle Bell Battle” has garnished an important nomination from the Golden State Film Festival. The movie will be screened at the historic TCL Chinese Theatre in Hollywood on March 25, 2019.
“Bizarre Man: The Jingle Bell Battle” starts off with an African American superhero, Bizarre Man, who protects the city’s inhabitants. Unlike most heroes, Bizarre Man has strange powers, and an unexplainable sense of humor. His arch nemesis, Dr. Mayhem, isn’t so comical. Due to his hatred for Christmas, Dr. Mayhem devises a plan to kidnap Santa Claus, and release a toxic gas into the world. Bizarre Man must stop the evil villain before the gas is released.
Several Chicago entertainers are included in this film, such as Leon Rogers (BET Comicview) and Correy Bell (TruTV’s Laff Tracks). D Fault Entertainment has garnered several awards and nominations from notable film festivals. These fests include the 2016 Chicago International REEL Shorts Festival and the 2017 US Hollywood International Golden Film Awards. Having screened this film in Chicago, this will be D Fault Entertainment's first Hollywood premiere. Dandrell Scott also explains, “The importance of this film lies in its message to black children. Positive, constructive images will help motivate the urban youth. We even have a black Santa Claus. You don’t see that too often in film.”
Patrons will receive a free prize upon their arrival to the screening, constituted by the filmmaker. If you're in the Los Angeles area, you can purchase tickets on www.bizarreman.com.
