Premiering six years ago, almost to this date, at the Sundance Film Festival, Bellflower emerged as one of the most impressive indie features of 2011. A rough-and-tumble, low-budget production that was refreshingly difficult to categorize, we’ve been waiting to see what director-writer-producer-editor-star Evan Glodell would be taking on next. Arriving this summer is the latest film from Glodell’s Coatwolf Productions, Chuck Hank and the San Diego Twins, and now the first teaser has arrived.
While it’s not directed by Glodell — that duty goes to Jonathan Keevil (composer, editor, and producer on Bellflower) — he stars in the film, which takes a more genre approach than their last project. Upping their scale, it’s set in a futuristic world where our titular heroes must save the planet. With impressive visuals, mixing very different styles, we’re looking forward to this videogame-influenced adventure.

Way back in the simpler days of 2011, writer-director-actor Evan Glodell made a big splash with his debut feature, Bellflower. The pre-apocalyptic romance felt both familiar (it’s an extended Mad Max riff) and totally new (but have you ever seen an extended Mad Max homage that was also a bittersweet breakup story?), and heralded Glodell as a scrappy […]

Should you have trouble discerning the plot, here’s the synopsis: “The Syndicate, an evil gang bent on world domination, summons a secret weapon from the heavens and breaks the long-standing truce with the San Diego family by kidnapping their sister and cutting off the town’s supply of Tatsui Power-Up Drinks.

Two years ago almost to the day, we asked this question: “What happened to Evan Glodell and the dudes that made Bellflower? We need more.” This was in 2015, the writer/director’s Diy, micro-budgeted debut; “Bellflower” debuted at the SXSW Film Festival in 2011.

"What do we do?" "We go in, and we kill everyone." Coatwolf Productions has unveiled a teaser trailer for their new film, titled Chuck Hank and the San Diego Twins. This low-budget Mad Max-esque action thriller is inspired by side-scrolling video games and 1980's action. Coatwolf founder Evan Glodell plays Chuck Hank, who teams up with the San Diego Twins (Jonathan Keevil & Tyler Dawson) to stop The Syndicate, an evil gang bent on world domination that summons a secret weapon from the heavens. The cast includes David Arquette, Troian Bellisario, Michael Pare, Olivia Taylor Dudley, along with Mma fighters Don Frye and Josh Barnett.

On one side, The Syndicate - an evil gang of crank-head misfits, »

Actor-director Evan Glodell made an enormous splash with his indie darling Bellflower. Essentially a millennial romantic drama with a Mad Max car fetish, Bellflower marked the arrival not just of Glodell but of the fiercely independent company / collective that he was a part of, Coatwolf. And while it's taken a while for Coatwolf to follow up that early success they're back now with a blast of video game influenced insanity. The Syndicate, an evil gang bent on world domination, summons a secret weapon from the heavens and breaks the long-standing truce with the San Diego family by kidnapping their sister and cutting off the town’s supply of Tatsui Power-Up Drinks. Now Chuck Hank and the San Diego Twins must decide whether to fight –...
