Lordi Documentary coming out 2014

Postby Hemitys » Thu Nov 15, 2012 1:52 pm

Now this sounds interesting. I hope we finally get to see THE Lordi documentary we've waiting for years and years. It would have been awesome to see this year already since it's the anniversary but hey - I guess at this point the extra year of waiting is nothing :wink:

My only wish is that the lenght is more than two hours. There's no way to go through 20+ years in 45 minutes.

Is it possible to delete the topic I make in release ?

There will be a new documentary film on Lordi.
The film follows the band behind the scenes for the first time. It will also include new archive material about Mr. Lordi's childhood and from the very birth of the band twenty years ago.
Check out our website http://www.lordi.fi and the movie website.
http://www.lordifilm.com/


Finnish production company Illume Oy has acquired exclusive rights to make a film about Lordi. The film follows the band and it’s leading man Mr Lordi behind the scenes for the first time. It will include new archive material from Tomi Putaansuu’s childhood and from the very birth of the band twenty years ago.

The international project’s premiere is planned for Spring 2014. Filming has taken place in Finland and elsewhere in Europe as well as in the US. Development support has come from Finnish funders and also from the MEDIA programme of the European Union.

The director, Antti Haase is an award winner, for example Film Australia Documentary Award and Luleå Art Bienniale. Producers for Illume Oy are Venla Hellstedt and Jouko Aaltonen.

Director Antti Haase says: ‘When we were children, Mr. Lordi was the one and only friend who passionately wanted to be a monster. I believe that Lordi’s story will appeal to everyone who refuses to give up their dreams, despite the greatest obstacles.’

Mr. Lordi says: ‘We wanted to lift the curtain on the band’s image at long last and enlighten the reality behind the masks and the costumes, that is sometimes not so glamorous. Never before have we let cameras in to follow our life so closely. Antti is the best Director for this film, because he knows where the band and I spring from. Our childhood homes are just a few hundred meters apart in Rovaniemi, Lapland.’

Was wondering the exact same thing. I mean how close can the camera actually get without showing the people behind the masks? I know what they've been saying for years and it's highly unlikely they'll show the faces but hey you know - some other dudes made the same mistake about 30 years ago so...

They won't be shown without masks. That has been told in Finnish magazine Seura that released today. There was also told that the film's budget is 500 000 euros and length is 90min.

Since the budget is on 500 000 euro I believe this is a pretty big project. I'm wildly guessing that they are making it in the style of the Anvil documentary (For those who haven't seen it, see it!) If it gets the same attention as that one this can be a very good thing for the band if they want to reach out to a bigger audience.

However, I am both excited and a little bit sad. It really does seem like this will be the end of their monster image. (I don't expect them to drop their image, but they will just simply become guys in masks.) It would be impossible to make a pure documentary that feels "real" if they will be trying to hide their faces. Ah well, time will see.

You're late about 7 years. The monster image started to fall apart after Eurovision and it disappeared after BFB was released, leaving just the latex masks. They don't act like monsters since TMD era.

I fully agree with you. I just meant that this will be the nail in the coffin.
Oh I wish I was a Lordi fan in the Get Heavy/TMD era ...

Image? I thought they were real?!? :shock: HAVE I BEEN LIVING A LIE THIS WHOLE TIME?!?

Personally I love finding out all I can about who does what and how things work, like with magic tricks, but for me it still stays magical for me...there again, I am a big kid :P No hope for me I guess lol!
I hope it's like the Anvil documentary and Dark Floors, those two actually made it to Blockbuster Video store over here, easy access for me :mrgreen:

Weeelll there have been already lots of video and photo material of the band without masks in Finnish tv and magazine releases since 06, just filmed from the backside or for example in Mie Oon Lordi their faces are censored by photos of the masks. This is not so big deal nowadays.

Maybe it's sour grapes, maybe I've gone senile and miserable with age, but I believe someone once said, perhaps not in these exact words, but a similar tone and style. I can't find the actual quote, so here goes:

"You see, it's like Santa Claus. You don't care about the guy underneath the beard, who goes home and does his taxes like everyone else. You believe in the spirit, in the image, what it represents."

I'll leave it at that.
Actually I'm a Plumber.

Amen said on Twitter a while ago that it will be in English. Also I read from Finnish magazine Seura that they try to get it to theaters internationally.

That'd be fantastic, I hate missing out on Lordi stuff because I'm English, well, that and I can't find anywhere nearby that teaches Finnish :lol:

Even though they would speak finnish in the documentary, there would be of course english subtitles.

(or so I strongly assume)

I have huge, HUGE doubts it'll come out in Romania. Possibly the UK but I think if it does come out in the UK then it'll probably be in England. I don't really think it'll be out in Wales :(

But I guess (hope) that at one point it'll be on DVD and I'll be able to order it :)
And I wish you well in hell

I'm probably gonna wait to order it too. Chances are it's not gonna be coming to theaters in Canada so I'll wait to order too. :)
