Watch: Heroin Bob Lives In New Trailer For ‘Slc Punk 2: Punk’s Dead’

1 August 2014 3:36 PM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

In case you’ve forgotten, or potentially not even seen it, 1998’s "Slc Punk!" told the hilarious and bitter story of two unruly punks, Stevo and Heroin Bob, trying to maintain an anarchist way of life in the cultural wasteland, of the very unpunk conservative suburbs of Salt Lake City circa 1980. An irreverent and self-aware satire about maintaining the punk ethos while trying to figure out next steps in life, this funny coming-of age tale was often compared to slacker/druggie-centric films like "Trainspotting" and "Clerks." But as wry, sharply written and critically acclaimed as "Slc Punk!" was, the indie was a generally little-seen portrait of the clash between the blind conformism of the suburbs and the rebellious punk lifestyle. Writer/director James Merendino made several films before and since, but none seemed to posses the same spark as his semi-autobiographical look at his nihilistic teenage years (which was nominated for a Best. »

‘Slc Punk 2′ Teaser Trailer: Punk’s Dead, Heroin Bob’s Dead, But His Son Is More Alive Than Ever

23 July 2014 5:30 PM, PDT | FilmSchoolRejects.com | See recent FilmSchoolRejects news »

The original members of the Ramones may all be dead now, just like the music they played, but man do they and that music still sound great in a movie trailer. This time it’s “Cretin Hop” over part of the new teaser trailer for Punk’s Dead: Slc Punk! 2, a sequel that we’ve been waiting to see come to light for the last year. This is proof that it’s looking like a worthy follow-up for all the fans of the 1998 original. Of which I am definitely one. Still, in punk rock fashion, it ends with a proper “Fu” directed right at all of us. This first spot also shares a good indication of what the plot entails. It’s 2004 and “Heroin” Bob (Michael Goorjian) is indeed still dead, but he apparently is still cursing us out from the afterlife. Meanwhile, he’s left behind a very pretty son (Ben Schnetzer) who is now about »

Heroin Bob is Back in Teaser Trailer for Punk's Dead: Slc Punk 2

22 July 2014 10:45 AM, PDT | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

We've got the first teaser trailer for writer and director James Merendino's Punk's Dead: Slc Punk 2, and it brings back Heroin Bob (Michael A. Goorjan). He's still dead, but he does play a part in the story that's being told. The film focuses on Ross (Ben Schnetzer), the son Bob had with Trish. Bob seems to be narrating the film from his grave. 

Merendino went into a little more detail about the story in an interview saying:

“It’s about him interacting in this world with a much sharper point of view than even Stevo. He’s sort of a goth kid. He’s not mired by having to say he’s a punk rocker. I don’t know what else to say. I could give away more spoilers but then who’s gonna want to see the movie?”

Here's what the director had to say about the teaser »

Slc Punk 2 Trailer: Heroin Bob Rises Again

21 July 2014 10:21 PM, PDT | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

We now have a first look at Punk's Dead: Slc Punk 2, James Merendino's follow-up to his 1998 cult classic about two young anarchist punks navigating life in Salt Lake City in the mid-80s. Of the follow-up, Merendino told the Wrap: “In this teaser, you will get a glimpse at familiar faces and I briefly introduce Bob's son, Ross. I am not revealing all of the characters or even much of the story. There's more, much more. Enjoy.” So, what else do we know so far? Well, the original gang is all back (minus Matthew Lillard), Heroin Bob has risen from the grave, and there will be plenty of moshing, because of course. »

First Photos from Punk's Dead: Slc Punk 2

8 July 2014 3:30 PM, PDT | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

Liberty Spike Productions has released eight photos from director James Merendino's new film Punk's Dead: Slc Punk 2. The film was successfully crowd funded through IndieGoGo, and it's awesome to see this movie taking shape! I'm a huge fan of the original 1990s film, which over the years has become a cult classic. It's going to be really awesome to be able to revisit some of these characters. 

The photos include a huge mosh pit, Bob's ravaged headstone, Hannah Marks as Penny, Ben Schnetzer as Ross, Michael Goorjian returning as Heroin Bob, and more. Devon Sawa will reprise his role and Til Schweiger is rumored to be returning as well. 

The story will revolve around a new character, who happens to be the child of Heroin Bob and Trish. Merendino went into a little more detail in a previous interview saying, “It’s about him interacting in this world with »

First Look: James Merendino's Sequel 'Punk's Dead: Slc Punk! 2'

8 July 2014 2:20 PM, PDT | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

This past May, some surprising news arrived announcing a sequel to the 1998 cult classic Slc Punk! from writer and director James Merendino. Even more surprising was the return of Devon Sawa, Michael Goorjian, Adam Pascal and James Duval reprising their roles from the first film. Now some first look images from Punk's Dead: Slc Punk! 2 have surfaced, showing off Hannah Marks as Penny, Ben Schnetzer looking like a vampire as Ross, and the return of Heroin Bob in two different forms. The photos seem to capture the spirit of the original film, but will this be anything more than nostaliga? We'll see. Look!

First Look: ‘Slc Punk 2′ Pictures Shove Heroin Bob Into the Mosh Pit

8 July 2014 6:30 AM, PDT | FilmSchoolRejects.com | See recent FilmSchoolRejects news »

There’s an open discussion about nostalgia happening now where participants either decry our reliance on it based on Buzzfeed Gif-sticles and co-opting major studios, or vaunt a highly personalized flavor of hazy memories by looking uncritically at the past. Then there’s Punk’s Dead: Slc Punk! 2, an attempt at opening the wounds of the 90s cult classic and rooting around inside. Like the mohawked engine that could, the production has taken a successful crowdfunding campaign (no doubt fueled in part by nostalgia) and converted money into moving images — some of which director James Merendino saw fit to share with us. The second coolest image is from the concert scene where now-older characters reconnect. Merendino used the IndieGoGo money to bring Screeching Weasel and anyone who donated at least $10 to the cause together for a show that scored over 1,200 participants. The coolest image, as you’ll see below, is the grave of a beloved friend. That »

Matthew Lillard Officially Not Involved in ‘Slc Punk!’ Sequel

8 May 2014 7:38 AM, PDT | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

Matthew Lillard seems just as surprised as everyone else that “Slc Punk!” is getting a sequel after all these years. Earlier this week, writer/director James Merendino announced that his 1998 film, about two punks living on the edge of society in conservative Salt Lake City, would return for a second go-round. In the announcement, he said that the new movie, “Slc Punk 2: Punk's Dead,” would return original cast members Devon Sawa, Michael Goorjian, Adam Pascal and James Duval. But Lillard, who played Stevo in the first film, was missing from that list, and now we know why: I'm officially not involved. »

Two weeks before he died, Philip Seymour Hoffman reportedly introduced himself to a stranger at the Sundance Film Festival as “a heroin addict.” Hoffman’s battle with heroin has inspired that same level of candor in others, who are slowly beginning to share their stories of experiences with addiction, both first-hand and as observers. “Slc Punk!” director James Merendino took to Facebook late Monday night to share a story about his deceased friend Brad Renfro (below, left), “an actor who had been injecting heroin at 12 years old.” Also read: Philip Seymour Hoffman ‘Seemed High,’ Took Out $1,200 From Supermarket Atm Before Death, »
