Upcoming Limited Release Sony Film SUPERCON to Screen at Julien Dubuque International Film Festival


Runde Auto Group is proud to be a driving force behind the Julien Dubuque International Film Festival. The 2018 festival is set for April 26-29 in downtown Dubuque. All films are free on Runde Free Day, Thursday, April 26. See you at the fest!

SUPERCON, a Sony film that will soon make its limited theatrical release, will be featured during a special screening at the seventh annual Julien Dubuque International Film Festival.

The event is set for 6:30 p.m. on Friday, April 27, at Five Flags Theater, 405 Main St. Doors open at 5:30 p.m. and the cost is $10.

The 98-minute comedy stars Maggie Grace (Taken, Twilight: Breaking Dawn, The Scent of Rain & Lightening) Ryan Kwanten (True Blood, The Right Kind of Wrong, Legends of the Guardian), Mike Epps (Resident Evil, The Hangover, All About the Benjamins), Brooks Braselman (Aqua Teen Hunger Force, Squidbillies), Russell Peters (Source Code, Chef, The Jungle Book), Clancy Brown (Warcraft: The Beginning, Thor: Ragnarok, The Shawshank Redemption), and John Malkovich (The Man in the Iron Mask, In the Line of Fire, Being John Malkovich).

It tells the story of a rag-tag group of former TV stars and comic book artists who make their living working at conventions. They decide to steal the loot from a crooked promoter and an overbearing former TV icon. The film is rated R and isn’t suitable for younger audiences.
