First Look at "Pharaoh's Quest: The Curse of Amset-Ra!"

By: Andrew Bermudez (Mustache Maniacs Film Co Headquarters; March 31, 2019)      To finish up our adventurous exploration in March, we have one last film that we want to cover for all of you! Read on to find out about this summer's big blockbuster!
Get Ready to Travel to 1924!      Unlike the Johnny Thunder Saga, this film is going to take place in the Golden Age of Adventure, right in the 1920's! Just like the LEGO sets that this film is based on, this film will follow the exploits of Jake Raines in 1924 Egypt, where Archibald Hale has summoned him to help him crack the ancient prophecy of Amset-Ra and stop the tyrant Pharaoh from rising again! Along with Helena Skvalling and Mac McCloud, they set off to find the treasures that are the key to his power! But what is the pharaoh's greatest secret?

Celebrating 100 Years of the End of World War 1!
     November 11, 2018 marked the 100th anniversary of the end of World War 1, so this film commemorates that anniversary by featurin…

First Look at "Johnny Thunder 4"!

By: Andrew Bermudez (Mustache Maniacs Film Co. Headquarters; March 24, 2019)      In addition to all of the re-releases that we have planned, we are still working on ways to bring more stories from the Johnny Thunder Saga and Project U to life! Here, covered for the first time ever, is an extensive look at Johnny Thunder and the Wonders Beneath the Waves! Let's "dive" in, shall we?
A Deep Sea Adventure Like No Other      While it is true that we are saving Dino Island for a later film (though I can't say any more on that film yet), this film is going to someplace that the Adventurers LEGO Sets never ventured to: underwater! After the tests of underwater effects in Wonders of Buoyancy and Johnny Thunder and the Wisdom of the Ancients, we're going all out with an almost all-underwater story for this film! The setting is just off the coast of the island of Bermuda, where the Adventurers have been summoned by Prof. Samantha Rhodes and Dr. Jeff Fisher to investigate leg…

First Look at "Johnny Thunder and the Secret of Marco Polo: The Adventure Retold!"

By: Andrew Bermudez (Mustache Maniacs Film Co. Headquarters; March 17, 2019)      While it has become controversial among the fan community, we decided in 2017 to remake Johnny Thunder and the Secret of Marco Polo, with new effects, modern animation, and more! Here's what you can expect from the new version.
Now More Cinematic Than Ever!      One thing that we have grown in since the release of the original film is how cinematic our newer films feel (at least in comparison). We want to carry this over into the new film, and this title treatment exemplifies that. It's not final, but it takes clear cues from the original Orient Expedition title treatment (the final version will look similar to this one).
A Change in Atmosphere!      The film is (obviously) going to follow the same plot as the original film, but we want to give this film more emotional impact in terms of lighting (the original film had pretty even lighting). As you can see here in this concept painting, the opening …

First Look at "Patrick: The Movie!"

By: Andrew Bermudez (Mustache Maniacs Film Co. Headquarters; March 6, 2019)      With so many re-releases coming this year alone, it's easy to forget that we have plenty of new films in the works as well. Well, today's the day that we give one of those films its due respects. Presenting: Patrick: The Movie!
A Tale By Patrick, for Fans There is no doubt that Lord Sinister's silliest henchman, Patrick Hooligans, is our most popular original character. His silly antics juxtaposed against Lord Sinister are what give the villains of the Johnny Thunder films so much personality. And now, he's telling his tale of getting into adventuring. We have yet to start production on this film, so we do not have any screenshots (sorry). But we do have some other things to share.
From a Joke to a Movie      If you've seen Johnny Thunder and the Secret of Marco Polo recently, then you may remember the scene where Patrick Hooligans is seen for the first time and this resulting exchange bet…

First Look at "Johnny Thunder and the Gift of the Nile: Special Edition!"

By: Andrew Bermudez (Mustache Maniacs Film Co. Headquarters; March 3, 2019)
     Today, we're doing a little something to kick it old-school, so for the first time in years, we are giving out a first look press release for one of our upcoming re-releases! Johnny Thunder and the Gift of the Nile is one of our most celebrated sequels to date, as the popularity of Johnny Thunder and the Secret of Marco Polo buoyed up anticipation for this sequel back in 2009 and 2010. However, time has not been kind to the film. Copyright strikes, advancements in current technology, and other factors have made this film into something like the Heart of Osiris: a relic from the past that is overshadowed by more current films. That's not right, so we're enhancing the film to make it look as stellar as ever! Here's what you can expect.
Branding Unity for the Johnny Thunder films!      If you've noticed something about the new title treatments for our Johnny Thunder films, its that the words…
