Leading anime distributor Central Park Media made news at February 24-26’s New York Comic-Con with four revelations about the upcoming DVD release of CPM’s highly anticipated computer-generated Japanese monster movie - Negadon: The Monster From Mars. CPM’s Managing Director John O’Donnell and Assistant Marketing Manager Peter Tatara devoted a third of the CPM Comic-Con Panel to Negadon: The Monster From Mars, a title called “a dream come true” by independent and cult movie portal AintItCoolNews.com and “flawless” by online Godzilla hub MonsterZero.us.
At the panel, O’Donnell and Tatara revealed:
- NegadonAttacks.com. The official Negadon: The Monster from Mars website was launched in conjunction with New York Comic-Con and is online at www.NegadonAttacks.com. The site currently contains a wealth of Negadon information and images and will be continually updated with more content as the summer nears.
- Negadon Teaser Trailer. CPM premiered the Negadon North American trailer at its New York Comic-Con Panel. Tatara noted that Negadon’s Japanese trailers have been passed from fan to fan over the internet for months and encouraged fans to post and share the new CPM trailer on websites, forums, and blogs. The North American Negadon trailer can be found at www.NegadonAttacks.com.
- Negadon Kaiju Contest. As Negadon: The Monster From Mars is a tribute to Godzilla, Mothra, and the entirety of the Japanese monster movie genre, CPM wants to give Japanese monster movie fans a special treat by offering them a chance to have their own original Japanese-style giant monster artwork included on CPM’s Negadon DVD. From now until March 25, fans may submit their original artwork to www.NegadonAttacks.com. CPM will be including as many entries as possible on the Negadon DVD.
- Negadon at Anime Syracuse. At its New York Comic-Con Panel, CPM made its first North American Negadon screening announcement.
