The Asylum at Incubate Festival 2010

Press Release From The Incubate Festival 2010:

In September 2010, The Asylum will be a guest at the Incubate Festival in Tilburg. The American company has become notorious in recent years for making their so-called mockbusters, cheap pirated versions of major Hollywood films.

These mockbusters are immediately released on DVD, even before the original movies screen in cinemas. Besides a large number of claims and lawsuits, the studio also enjoys a large fan base.

The Asylum’s way of working fits perfectly with the central theme of this year’s Incubate; piracy in the arts. Besides various readings and discussions on the subject, Incubate has also compiled a very diverse film program around this theme under the title ‘Pirate Cinema‘.

During the festival week visitors can enjoy the pirated counterparts of The Da Vinci Code, Snakes on a Plane, Transformers and Alien vs. Predator among others. One of the highlights is the European movie premiere of Titanic II. The film premieres in the U.S. on August 24 and will be featured in a cinema in Europe for the first time during the Incubate festival on Thursday, September 16.

All screenings take place in the Filmfoyer Tilburg and are free. Check out the whole Pirate Cinema program at

Here are some clips from an interview with one of The Asylum’s Executive Producers, David Rimawi:

“Seriously I thought it was a spoof when i saw it at the rental store”
“it was hilarious in the stupidest way, Don’t BUY JUST RENT“
“This movie is way more fun than the movie that it obviously rips off”
