THE BOONDOCK SAINTS ATTRACT ATTENTION AS THEY ROLL INTO TOWN

By D.E.Levine

The producer, director and cast of "The Boondock Saints II: All Saints Day" celebrated the 10th anniversary of the release of the original film and the DVD and Blu-ray release of the sequel by throwing a big party in New York City last night.


Pictured in the photo above are Chris Brinker (producer), Bob Marley (Greenly), Troy Duffy (writer and director), Billy Connolly (Poppa), Clifton Collins Jr.(Romeo), Daniel DeSanto (Crew Cut) and David Della Rocca (Rocco).

Arriving in "The Boondock Saints II: All Saints Day" bus, the Boondock Saints parked on East 11th Street and took over Webster Hall for a rocking event that was billed as a pre-St. Patrick's Day party and featured entertainment by Ty Stone & The Truth, The Dirges and Taylor Duffy.

The event was loud as the performers packed the house with laughing, drinking, dancing, shouting followers who knew all the words to the songs and also seemed to know all the dialogue to the movies.

As the performers belted out songs, Troy Duffy and the cast members circulated in the crowd meeting fans and taking photos with them.


Pictured above, Ty Stone & The Truth rock the house and keep the crowd singing and cheering as they perform songs from the films.

A one-time special presentation showing of the original film with a retrospective and behind-the-scenes footage will be introduced by creator, writer and director Troy Duffy. The event will start at 7:30 p.m. local time on Thursday, March 11th.

Another 449 theaters throughout the United States will also show the film and the retrospective footage introduced by creator, writer and director Troy Duffy on that evening. For a listing of theaters and their locations, and to purchase tickets for the event go to www.FathomEvents.com.
