This film is directed by Brian Metcalf with a great cast that includes Thomas Nicholas, Mickey Rourke, Penelope Ann Miller, Sean Astin, Kelly Arjun, and Lou Diamond Phillips. Let's listen to the trailer.(Plays “Adverse” Official Trailer)I had a great conversation with Thomas. It was one of those peak-behind-the-curtain moments that I love and you will enjoy it, too. So welcome back, let's listen in with Thomas Ian Nicholas.I'm very excited. My new film, Adverse is being released in theaters if you can believe it, on February 12th. Socially distanced, of course, we're all staying safe. But obviously, a lot of states have different regulations and rates of safety versus Los Angeles, which we’re not doing very well here. I'm very excited about this film, it's something different for me as an actor, and I also produced the movie. I'm taking a turn into a more dramatic role as an actor than people are probably more familiar with me.That's awesome. So that brings up a lot of things we need to talk about. First of all, theaters, how did you manage that? That's tough right now. Everybody's talking about all the theaters being closed. So how wide is the release? Is it regional or national?Our plan prior to even dealing with what we are right now was always to do a platform release starting in 50 theaters, and if it stays and doesn't nominally then it would just move on to VOD if it does better than it can expand.
