LOS ANGELES, CA, UNITED STATES, The Los Angeles premiere of the highly anticipated movie, ”Bomb City”, will be hosted by punk icon CJ Ramone on February 9th, 2018. Ramone, vocals/bassist of The Ramones, will host a live Q&A with the cast and crew of the film during the premiere event.
Set in 1997, ”Bomb City” depicts the true story behind a controversial hate crime that divided the nation. In the film, director Jameson Brooks deconstructs two parallel worlds of the punks and the preps of Amarillo, Texas. “I’m excited to finally share” Bomb City with LA,” Brooks says. “This is where we start the movement against intolerance…Where we spread the message of unity…Where we celebrate the main character, Brian Denekes’, legacy with the world.”
Throughout the film, the radical appearances of the punks stir social intolerance within the community, particularly with a group of high school football jocks known as “white-hatters.” After losing a football game, the white-hatters have an altercation with several punks, igniting a series of hostile encounters between the two groups. One evening, these encounters climax with a horrific, violent street fight that would soon become notorious for being one of the most controversial hate crimes in modern American culture.
Winner of the Audience Award at the Nashville Film Festival and 2017 Dallas International Film Festival, ”Bomb City” has struck a chord with many viewers across the country. “Brian’s story has touched me since day one,” says actor and producer Major Dodge. “Now we get to share it with the world! I know it will do the same for anyone who watches the film.” UFC Champion “Ruthless” Robbie Lawler was moved by the script and accepted a role in the movie.
Gravitas Ventures’ Manager of Acquisitions, Zach Hamby, echoes Dodge’s statement. “Watching Bomb City, you’ll find yourself on a roller coaster of emotions, ultimately questioning the very morality of America’s justice system,” Hamby continues. “Jameson Brooks’ feature film debut is as powerful as they get.”
The Los Angeles Premiere is taking place on February 9th, with an all-star lineup coming to attend and see the movie. “Ruthless” Robbie Lawler (UFC Champion), Shawn Smash & Miguel Conflict with band Total Chaos, Henry Melton (Pro Bowler for the Chicago Bears), Lamarr Houston (Linebacker for Chicago Bears) and many more are moved by these young filmmakers passion for getting this story told and the hard work they put into the film.
