Get ready to do the Electric Boogaloo ... Not Quite Hollywood director Mark Hartley is now deep into things with his documentary exploration of the Cannon Films legacy and the first official poster art has arrived via the film's official Facebook page in advance of its August premiere at the Melbourne International Film Festival.

MENAHEM GOLAN and YORAM GLOBUS were two movie-obsessed cousins from Israel. After arriving in America they set about creating an independent studio that would be able to compete with the majors... and no one could have anticipated just how close these two outsiders would get in nearly taking over both Hollywood and the UK film industry.

From 1979 to 1989 Golan and Globus produced more than 120 films through their American based production entity, CANNON FILMS. They ruthlessly and enthusiastically pursued their American Dream of turning a renegade independent outfit into the seventh Hollywood major with an aggressive pre-sales policy and an insanely prolific schedule for cheap mass production, centering on genre fare.

Thanks to a revolutionary financing plan Cannon found itself in the position of having to keep making films to keep their ever expanding company alive - always hoping the next production would be that elusive $100 million blockbuster.

ELECTRIC BOOGALOO: THE WILD, UNTOLD STORY OF CANNON FILMS is not just a story about a unique filmmaking legacy, but of two cousins whose passion for cinema changed the way movies were made and marketed, and how ultimately this passion would come between them and the company they built together. This is a one-of-a-kind story about two-of-a-kind men who changed film forever.
