Wrapped: Rock Jocks

Posted in Justin News, Movie News, News with tags , , on April 13, 2011 by .:[TEAMspunk/ransom]:.

Justin recently wrapped an independent film called Rock Jocks.

The synopsis pulled from Collider for the movie is:

A secret band of overworked government employees spend their night shift fighting off boredom and a meddling bureaucrat hell-bent on shutting them down, while defending the world from an onslaught of asteroids. Rock Jocks is a honest, edgy and quirky comedy that offers an unorthodox glimpse into the universal truths that arise out of the basic human condition.

 

Here is the IMDB info on this as well as the teaser poster.

Starring: Andrew Bowen, Felicia Day, Gerry Bednob, Jason Mewes, & Justin Chon

MTV.com Review of “TURBO”

Say what you will about the “Twilight” explosion of the last year – and everybody seems to have an opinion on whether the phenomenon is awesome or annoying – but even the haters should have a hard time complaining about how many of the franchise’s stars are using their newfound power to help young filmmakers. Jackson Rathbone has been hard at work on flicks like “Girlfriend,” Robert Pattinson has been able to bring a wider audience to quirky indies like “Little Ashes” and “How to Be,” and now comes the latest boost from Justin Chon.“Check out this short film i did with a friend from USC,” Justin Tweeted Wednesday night, posting a link to a vimeo page with an impressive 20-minute-long film called “Turbo.” Also on the page is the trailer, both of which were posted by the film’s director Jarrett Lee Conaway.

In the flick, Chon plays Hugo Park, a teenage fast-food slinger in a futuristic world much like ours – but with far more advanced gaming. The video game of the day is “Super Turbo Arena 2,” a sleek “Street Fighter”-like battle simulation. But instead of controllers or a mouse, the players stand in front of a sleek screen, wear sunglasses and move around on top of a “Dance Dance Revolution”-like floor that reflects their every step on screen. Each participant plays as a highly-stylized badass fighter – and Hugo has modeled his own after his wheelchair-bound older brother with hopes of winning enough money to “fix his back.”

Battling a braggart named Shamus (David Lehre) and a hottie who goes by the name Ruse (Alice Hunter), Hugo works his way through the competition one battle at a time. Finally, Hugo and Shamus square off in a final battle where they have to play as themselves, with the host telling them: “You can’t hide behind your avatars any longer.”

Described on the site as being in the tradition of “The Karate Kid” and “Tron,” the flick is an impressive mix of the two. Conaway is a young director with limited funds, so it’s really saying something that his short film is better-looking (and smarter) than recent, similarly-themed duds like “Street Fighter: The Legend of Chun-Li” and “Dragonball Evolution.” Although set in the non-specific future, and highly stylized at times, “Turbo” hits a lot of gaming themes spot-on – right down to its fighters battling in arenas on beaches and in the desert.

You can bet that next time we track down Justin, we’ll be sure to ask him about the cool little flick – and whether he and Conaway would ever turn it into a full-length endeavor. But in the meantime, be sure to go check it out and let us know what you think down below.

”Turbo” the movie? Are you feeling it?

Celebuzz Interview with Justin Chon!

Here is an excerpt from an interview with Justin from celebuzz! Enjoy!

Is he happy?  By all accounts and direct quotes “yes”.  Is this the last stop on a heck of a wild ride?  “ah no” (another direct quote)

When we did enter the “Twilight Zone” and discuss the movie’s phenomenal success- Chon was insightful as usual.  “Twilight has mass appeal because it speaks to universal truths…Life, love, loneliness and the ever magnetic pull of immortality.”  How does he feel about such a diverse fan base?  “I love my fans, they are considerate, gentle, caring and yeah it does nice things for the ego now and again…”  And who wouldn’t mind a little ego boost from time to time?

As the interview came to a close I was shocked to see nearly 30 minutes had passed.  Not only did it feel like no time at all, but in Justin’s whirlwind existence 30 minutes of HIS “downtime” is quite a precious gift.

With a promise for a “sequel” to this interview and a “stay cool bro” from Justin, it closed with just enough time left to confirm from the source

  1. Single
  2. Looking
