I’ve made no secret of my excitement about the forthcoming biopic about Freddie Mercury. Now there’s another bit of news because the film won’t be shown in a traditional way. Courtesy of ScreenX, viewers will be engulfed in images of the iconic vocalist/composer/songwriter for Queen.
After viewing Durden Godfrey’s I Am Going to Kill Someone This Friday, I hoped those involved in promoting it would launch it to a wider audience. The premiere played to a sold-out crowd. Now there’s an encore in Jacksonville, and I highly recommend it. The Jax encore isn’t the only future this indie film has, though.
At present there’s an informal debate going around many country music sites and message boards.

If you’re old enough to remember how things were when you were young, it’s easy to sometimes wonder how artists revise or omit key moments in history. I was young when the United States won the space race with what was then the Soviet Union. I remember the day the US landed humans on the moon, and I remember astronauts working to plant the US flag.

We also had some special guests.
Reviews have rolled in for an indie film produced by Durden Godfrey in Jacksonville. The overwhelmingly positive response is resulting in an opportunity for the indie film community in Jacksonville.
By Jen Day Thompson Durden Godfrey’s I Am Going To Kill Someone This Friday premiered in Jacksonville with a sold out, one-night-only event at the downtown Public Library on Thursday, August 9th, 2018. For months, Facebook followers had seen teasers and promotional posts about the film, sparking interest, conversation and even a shout out from James Murray of television’s Impractical Jokers. Based on crowd response as the film ended Thursday, viewers were not disappointed. Godfrey’s film premiere started with a red carpet pre-party and cocktails. Guests’ photos were made on the red carpet upon entering and everyone enjoyed drinks and
It was bad enough I already had a commitment for the premiere of the indie film produced in Jax, I Am Going to Kill Someone This Friday. It was a good thing my older daughter Jennifer Day Thompson agreed to cover the premiere for the film. This morning when I asked her how it went, she said, “It was a packed house.” The film did not disappoint. Obviously, we have a community here willing to support indie art.
I think it was the creepy trailer that first intrigued me about the film I Am Going to Kill Someone This Friday. Then there was the Big Brother factor. Every time I wrote about the film I imagined an algorithm flagging me because of the title, specifically, the “I” in the title. As the premiere date nears, an exchange with one of the film’s producers led me to ponder a question. Will this film blow your mind?
