Lots of Seventh Python photos & video at MySpace
Our pals at Frozen Pictures are really getting into gear in the lead-up to the premiere of their film, The Seventh Python. The movie opens the American Cinematheque's Mods & Rockers Film Festival at the Egyptian Theatre in Hollywood on June 26th, and as the promotions begin, the lads are loading up their Seventh Python MySpace page with lots of production stills featuring star Neil Innes and others who appear in the film, including comedy legends John Cleese, Eric Idle, Terry Jones and Michael Palin of Monty Python's Flying Circus, as well as members of the Rutles and the Bonzo Dog Doo Dah Band, Emo Philips, Aimee Mann and-- well, check out the MySpace collection and see for yourself.
They've also started adding exclusive Neil Innes performance video and outtakes, with a new clip planned each week til the premiere-- which would turn out to be-- ah, we'll let you do the math.
We'd mentioned that the Hollywood Walk of Fame is a fitting place for the premiere, since the multitalented comic genius Mr. Innes has spent a career avoiding fame-- but judging from some of the press material, promising that the movie takes "direct aim at today’s shallow celebrity culture," we'd venture that it could even make some noise as a convincing denunciation of the celebutardia celebrated by some of those corporate porn-pushing gossip sites out there.
