Win a Donnie Darko DVD signed by Richard Kelly

13 January 2017 8:00 AM, PST | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

Author: Competitions

To mark the release of Donnie Darko, out now, we’ve been given a DVD copy signed by Richard Kelly to give away.

Fifteen years before Stranger Things combined science-fiction, Spielberg-ian touches and 80s nostalgia to much acclaim, Richard Kelly set the template – and the high-water mark – with his debut feature, Donnie Darko. Initially beset with distribution problems, it would slowly find its audience and emerge as arguably the first cult classic of the new millennium.

Donnie is a troubled high school student: in therapy, prone to sleepwalking and in possession of an imaginary friend, a six-foot rabbit named Frank, who tells him the world is going to end in 28 days 06 hours 42 minutes and 12 seconds. During that time he will navigate teenage life, narrowly avoid death in the form of a falling jet engine, follow Frank’s maladjusted instructions and try to maintain the space-time continuum.

Looking back on ‘Donnie Darko’ with Director Richard Kelly

9 January 2017 4:00 AM, PST | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

2001 saw the world introduced to Donnie Darko. The film, set in 1988, told the tale of a teenager weighed down by the knowledge that the world will end in twenty-eight days. The movie launched actor Jake Gyllenhaal as well as director Richard Kelly.

With Donnie Darko Kelly showcased a huge amount of talent, he wrote the film in addition to directing. Darko is a fantastic twisted tale of head scratching time-travel, filled with atmosphere, beautiful visuals and a killer British-heavy eighties soundtrack. It’s a movie that has stood the test of time and has recently been given a painstaking 4K restoration.

The restoration was a passion project for both Arrow Films and Richard Kelly, who curated the project. It really is a truly stunning release, spilling over with bonus content. To co-inside with the release we sat down with Kelly to delve into the history of the film, the oddities »

‘Donnie Darko’ director Richard Kelly is creating his own cinematic universe

9 January 2017 12:00 AM, PST | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Is a Richard Kelly movie universe coming? The talented filmmaker reveals all to The Hollywood News.

More on the potential Richard Kelly movie universe news below.

Richard Kelly burst onto the movie scene at the turn of the millennium with Donnie Darko. The film is nothing short of cult cinema magic and launched the career of actor Jake Gyllenhaal. Kelly followed the film with two more films, Southland Tales and The Box, but both failed to achieve the same cult success. Since The Box, Kelly has largely been missing in action.

We caught up with the director recently and sought to discover what he’s been doing, and it seems that very interesting things are afoot. Rather than jumping into the Marvel / Star Wars / DC universes like many of his peers, Kelly is instead working on creating his own cinematic universe:
