Blue & Red Carpet Premiere Dec. 2 (7 pm) @ Buffalo’s historic North Park Theatre
It might not be the best time to be a Buffalo Bills’ fan, but it’s the perfect time to release a film about the hilarious hardships of being said fan.
If you live in Buffalo, or if you’re from Buffalo, chances are you are somehow affected by Bills’ wins and losses. Heck, there are even a lot of people from around the world that have somehow been seduced into being a part of the Bills Mafia.
If you spent a good part of your day, yesterday, preparing food, setting out extra chairs, making drinks, Facetiming fellow football fiends from around the country, playing the Bills’ shout song, and reminiscing about clutch wins, horrific losses, and bad calls, then you will probably get a kick out of the movie UNBILLIEVABLE!, based on a world where Buffalo’s football team gets their inevitable victory over the forces of evil and the AFC East.
The movie has been crowdfunded by the fans, invested in by the fans, and sponsored by the support of local Buffalo businesses. It is a project driven by the love of the Bills and the city of Buffalo.
In advance of the film’s Blue & Red Carpet Premiere on December 2 (7 pm) at Buffalo’s historic North Park Theatre the public can view the official trailer and pre-order the movie before its release.
Co-directors J. Garrett Vorreuter and Scott Rubin take you on a wild ride as they unmask the generational pain, hope, heartache, and perhaps glory that awaits every Bills fan when that long-awaited special Sunday returns.
“I decided to write the script because I’m a lifelong Bills fan, and I’m losing my mind,” says UNBILLIEVABLE! filmmaker Scott Rubin, who served as the Editor-in-Chief of National Lampoon for ten years. “How many times can your heart be broken as a sports fan? With the Bills, it seems endless. There has to be a way out of this, and if they can’t win a world championship in the real world, at least I can try to make them win in the movie world.”
“I realized that so much of the story is about us, the fans,” Rubin says. “Players come and go, but we’re still here. I’ve been a fan since 1964! It turns out that we’re much more interesting, at this point than the actual football team: How we survive as fans, year after year; our interesting quirks and coping mechanisms that make us come back the next season even more committed and insane.”
Following is the breakdown of all of the perfectly packaged Buffalo fandemonium leading up to the release of the film.
