Sushi Girl is a “grindhouse” style movie, which this blogger is dying to see, and is best described as a dinner over a naked chic that ends badly.
My objective at the Sushi Girl Red Carpet held at Comic Con 2011 (trip sponsored by Tout.com), was to find out how badly the movie ends! Getting an answer out of Jeff Fahey, Tony Todd, and Mark Hamill was as hard as the abs on its lady star, Cortney Palm.
But I did learn that, according to Mark Hamill, Sushi Girl will make Tony Todd a “really big star.” Todd plays the lead role, a guy named Duke, who he says has the kind of “switch” in his head such that if you say the wrong thing, he will “just snap,” but who, Todd says, is “charming.”
In other words, Tony Todd plays a lovable sociopath.
Unlike the epic, must-see Bellflower movie meetup, this was a standard Red Carpet, which was fine, but the problem was once you got into a talk with, say, Mark Hamill, a PR rep would come by winding her hand as if to say “wrap it up.” And while she’s doing that – you can see it on the video – Hamill just keeps talking (yeah!).
And that’s because Hamill’s got a lot to say about his character Crow, who he says is sexist, sadistic, and a lot of terrible things Mark’s never played on screen before.
Sushi Girl’s got an edge – bring it on.
And I’ll have more videos from that red carpet, too.
