From the creators of WolfCop, and Another WolfCop, comes SuperGrid, the story of two estranged brothers, Jesse (Leo Fafard) and Deke (Marshall Williams) who must travel the notorious “Grid” to collect and deliver a mysterious cargo. The Grid is a highway running through post-apocalyptic Central Canada from the US Border to the Northwest Territories. Facing off with road pirates and car jackers, the brothers miss their drop-off and unleash a violent showdown with the crime syndicate at Black Lake, the last refuge of hope on the Grid.
SuperGrid is coming to theaters this month Canada! I recommend you seek out one of those three cinemas on December 14, 2018 and support some brilliant homegrown chaos on the prairies. The latest poster (see above) created by The Dude Designs (aka Thomas Hodge) is easily a poster of the year candidate and it was lovely seeing his incredible art grace yet another one of director Lowell Dean’s films. The Dude Designs’ previous poster art for the Wolfcop franchise is remarkable stuff.
SuperGrid recently screened at The Blood in The Snow Canadian Film festival in November where director of photography Michael J. Davidson won an award for his stunning work on the film; PLUS the movie won top honors at the SIFA Awards as well!
