Ready to open a can of crazy? Then you'll need to check out Justin McConnell's documentary Skull World when it opens. Theatrical dates and Blu-ray/DVD/VOD releases dates have just been announced, and it comes highly recommended from my good self. Follow the adventures of Skull Man (Greg Sommer) and enter the world of Box Wars, this is, as the artwork states, damned entertaining stuff. Distribution will be handled by Indiecan Entertainment, alongside Unstable Ground. The North American theatrical tour starts on May 10, with a home release on June 18th, with the Blu-ray and DVD.

Toronto, ON – Straight off of the film’s World Premiere at the Canadian Film Fest, the
counter-culture documentary SKULL WORLD will be released via a partnership between
Indiecan Entertainment (run by the prolific Avi Federgreen), and production shingle
Unstable Ground. The film will see a North American theatrical tour launch May 10th,
beginning at the Carlton Cinema in Toronto, before a release on Blu-Ray, DVD and VOD
June 18th.

The film “Follows several years in the life of Greg Sommer, aka Skull Man, as he builds
the Canadian chapter of Box Wars, an international underground movement of
cardboard-based combat.” Shot and directed by Justin McConnell (The Collapsed, The
Eternal, Working Class Rock Star), SKULL WORLD will be available in North America
on a region-free DVD & limited edition “Warrior Edition” Blu-Ray, each loaded with
hours of bonus features. In addition, it will be available through common VOD platforms
in the US, Canada, UK, Australia and New Zealand.

Indiecan Entertainment CEO Avi Federgreen negotiated the deal with Unstable Ground
Inc.’s Justin McConnell, in association with Variety Store TV Inc. “Justin is a great
emerging filmmaker in Canada and SKULL WORLD is just a sample of his great work.
