Bruce is an A list director in Hollywood who is about to get his name set in the history books of film-making when he gets his little statue on Oscar night. Meanwhile there is raging debate nationwide about the gore and blood of his films. His villains are seriously deranged, and the mayhem and violence they create are unmatched in Hollywood film history.
Wayne and Scout are psychotic killers. They've been on a killing spree across America. And they're on their way to pay their respects to their favourite film-maker. They are Bruce's biggest fans, and they want Bruce to do something for them.
The thing I like about Ben Elton's works is that they are always wickedly funny but with underlying thought-provoking issues that make me laugh and think at the same time. The issue in Popcorn is violence in film. Does art imitate life or is it the other way around? You decide. Unknown # 9:50 AM
