Fresh off the premiere of “Shut In,” the original action thriller that attracted more than 500,000 viewers in 72 hours, Daily Wire Entertainment is gearing up for yet another exciting release. Only this time, the film is a superhero action flick starring Cary Elwes of “The Princess Bride” fame.
“The Hyperions” will premiere for everyone to enjoy on Thursday, March 10, 2022, at 8:30 p.m. ET on the Daily Wire YouTube channel. After the premiere, it will be available exclusively for Daily Wire members to stream on DailyWire.com.
“’The Hyperions’ is one of the most creative films I’ve seen,” Daily Wire co-CEO Jeremy Boreing said. “It’s an ingenious comedy you can enjoy with your family and friends. We have always wanted to give it the largest possible audience and can’t wait to premiere it next week on YouTube for movie fans and our members.”
The unique comedy starring Elwes (“The Princess Bride”) tells the tale of Professor Ruckus Mandulbaum who, in 1960, invented the Titan badge device that turned a trio of teens into adored superheroes. According to the press release, “The quartet soon became a global phenomenon. Over time, though, the group had a falling-out and Professor Ruckus replaced the three original Hyperions with a cadre of new teens. By 1979, two of the Hyperions wanted their Titan badges back and went through great lengths to recover them, including robbing the professor’s museum and inadvertently taking a few hostages along the way.”
Other actors starring in “The Hyperions” include Penelope Mitchell (“Hellboy”), Tanner Buchanan (“Cobra Kai”), Elaine Tan (“Tully”), and Alphonso McAuley (“Walk of Shame”). The film was written, produced, and directed by Jon McDonald (“Muddy Corman”) under his American Millimetre banner.
“Director John McDonald is a true auteur,” Boreing said of the film. “It’s a movie about pride, family, and reconciliation – values we all share regardless of our politics. It’s a perfect movie for Daily Wire, even though I doubt anyone involved in making it listens to ‘The Ben Shapiro Show.’ I consider it a privilege to bring this film to our audience.”
“The Hyperions” is a quirky, offbeat film that the whole family will enjoy. It’s unlike any other Daily Wire offerings, showing again that the movies being offered are from every genre and for every fan of quality entertainment.
The entertainment division of Daily Wire couldn’t be hotter. “The Hyperions” is the fourth film The Daily Wire has announced over the past 13 months. It all started with the acquisition of Kyle Rankin’s “Run Hide Fight” in 2020, followed by the incredible premiere of “Shut In” in early 2022. After “The Hyperions,” fans are eagerly waiting for the release of the western drama, “Terror on the Prairie” starring “The Mandalorian” actress Gina Carano in her first film since parting ways with Disney last year.
