Attrition dvd and bluray releases

#23
I forgot to mention this...

It still can't beat the story of when one of my brother's (who has downs syndrome) met him and he shook his hand and somehow managed to transfer a bogey on to Seagals hand!!!! Yep...my brother had unfortunately been picking his nose prior to that LMAO. We have it on tape...and you can see Seagal wiping it off!!!! LMAO. True story (believe or not).

I'd have to ask my brother as he is the one who recorded it... although I'm not sure Mr.Seagal would want it posted up lol ;) .It also has my mum on the video so also not sure how she would feel about it.

It's no problem! But you were the only one with the diamond pass? And your brother and mum could go with you Steven? Sorry for the questions hahah:)
Sorry SteDu for the late reply.

It was actually a Seagal music gig with his blues band (I forget their name at time of writing) at a venue in Sofia, Bulgaria about 5 or 6 years ago.

The night turned out to be bizzare in many ways as, among other things, the music venue changed two times on the night and caused much confusion for those who had tickets. It had changed from one area of the city right to the opposite side. No one seemed to know where it was, no one was answering the phone, people working at bars and cafes in the area were not aware of a Seagal gig that night so people were beginning to think they had been conned by chance rogue promoter's (including my mum and brothers lol) !!

Meanwhile, Seagal and his band were having problems and frustrations of their own; they found out that, just before they went on stage, they wouldn't be getting paid for the gig!! No one knew why and I don't think it was ever disclosed as to why. But I know what you're thinking, who would dare not to pay Seagal and his band? But it really happened! And this is not the movies...Seagal can't bust heads in real life to get revenge!! Yet in actual fact it has happened a few times in countries like the aforementioned Bulgaria and Romania etc.

But, to be fair, Seagal and band did still honor the gig (I say honored it, they were actually 40 mins late starting and they cut it short by 30 mins) for the fans that had turned up and had tickets. But Seagal was in a really bad mood and didn't interact with the crowd all that much. It was also decided (I'm guessing by Seagal himself) there would be no meet & greet, autograph signings or diamond passes etc. Even though this had been advertised. This was the final straw for fans and people in attendance were fast becoming restless, agitated, feeling conned, angry and, not really much of a surprise, finally started booing!! So, as you can imagine, it must've been a very surreal night for everyone there (including Seagal and band members).

My mum and brothers only met Seagal purely by chance thanks to a chance meeting and quick talk with the promoter of the club - the one who didn't pay Seagal and band! He knew they were such big Seagal fans so, knowing they were feeling let down by the whole night, he kindly (almost foolishly?) told them what time Seagal was due to leave, where his "secret" exit was and where to wait for him!! So you can imagine an hour later the surprise and disbelief of Seagal and his 2 bodyguards when they suddenly saw my mum and two brothers rushing up towards him! Yet surprisingly he was curtious, appreciative and polite considering what had gone before. At least it seemed that way on the surface lol.

On a sidenote, they also told me that when Seagal got to the car to go back to his hotel he slammed the car door so hard it nearly came off! Not to mention having a face like a red-headed step child! So in many ways I'm glad I wasn't there (I was at home looking after the pets should you wish to know lol).

Now I don't know what you guys think, but you really couldn't make that sh*t up :D . But I'm sure there will be reviews of this night somewhere on the net? If so, I'm sure you'll read similar echoes of frustration from fellow Seagal fans and music journalists alike.

Peace.

That is a great story! You were so lucky you met Seagal there:eek: Hahah i would love to see Seagals face with the bodyguards when you stood in frond of him. It is very cool he did play the gig despite that he didnt get paid, and be happy he didnt kick your ass!

"Tape" ? Damn! How many years ago would that have been?! I meant MP4 video file from my brother's mobile...sorry. I must've been drunk when I typed that :D
Hahaha I think I was living in the 70's for a moment, I meant the video ofcourse haha not the tape:D
Or can you send me the tape anyway, I will give you my home adress so you can send it to me!:p

I contacted 365 flix about our dissapointment regarding the Attrition release. I asked them if the movie will be released in other territories (The Netherlands, Germany, Spain, France.......)

Their answer(s)

Hello! Some of the territories are sold. When the US wakes up, I’ll let you know which ones, as our sales department is there and they know for sure.

Then I asked them:

So first it has to be sold to the US? But 365 flix released it in the US right? I am little bit confused...ha ha...sorry

365 flix:

I’m not really at liberty to say. Just like most films, you’ll know when the distributor releases it. The 365Flix Release was a special circumstance. Please just be patient. Our sales department has said that it has been sold in these territories and that it will be released later in the year there

So I don't know if I read this correctly. Is it that Attrition will also get a new US release by a new distributor because the 365flix release was a special circumstance? What do you make out of it guys?
 
#34
I wonder if they had the rights to Attrition for a limited time, kinda like when a video game is exclusive to a specific system for a year but eventually gets released to all platforms. Whatever the case may be I hope they sell general commander too and give that movie a traditional release.

Yes i think that is how it reads to me. Would expect it is probably because 365Flix has not been a success and therefore they won't have made much money back.

The way I read it is that 365Flix has only one sales departement that is based in the US (not surprisingly as it is a starting business). As there is a time difference he/she couldn't answer your question because there was nobody at the sales department (nighttime I guess).

The rights have been sold apparently to other countries (the one you mentioned) and will have the release later this year.

Peace

General Commander is already sold. Lionsgate will release this one on dvd (maybe bluray) / VOD very soon!

As with most 'niche' media companies (like 'Twilight Time' or 'Vinegar Syndrome') they usually get the sole distribution rights on titles for about a year, before other territories release their own variants (this is usually a practice for primarily older, retro titles though) not entirely sure how long 265Flix will hold onto Attraition though (surely they've gone bankrupt by now?)

I don't understand that 365flix at all, I looked on their site just now and there's only like 10 films on there. How do they plan on staying around if they don't offer anything at all? Very weird. I reckon Attrition will get a proper release somewhere else, I mean how many people subscribe to this 365flix? Maybe about a dozen at max? No wonder nobody sees new Seagal stuff when it's released in such a poor way.

It's very frustrating that Seagal finally has made a very decent movie where he is very motivated since 20 years, and that it is getting this poor release. People don't know about this movie. No promotion at all. Believe me, director Matthieu Weschler isn't happy at all!
