Back in the ’80s and early ’90s, Australia and New Zealand filmmakers were getting ready to make their marks on America. Movies such as Mad Max (George Miller) and Dead Alive (Peter Jackson) were considered imported cult classics stateside, but bonafide box office hits in the broiling southern hemisphere.
So too was the fate of Fair Game, a female-led revenge thriller set in the Australian outback. Cinematographer Andrew Lesnie who won an Oscar for his work in The Lord of the Rings shot the film.
Dark Star Pictures is set to release Ozploitation classic Fair Game on the big screen across North America!
A bonafide Aussie classic, one that would later inspire Quentin Tarantino’s Death Proof, Fair Game is a wild revenge thriller set in the outback pitting Cassandra Delaney’s wildlife sanctuary boss against three psycho kangaroo hunters. Bored with killing kangaroos, they decide to kill the animals in the sanctuary, and when they see how attractive the owner is, they decide to have a little “fun” with her, too. Turns out that they may get a bit more “fun” than they bargained for.
Fair Game also stars Peter Ford, David Sandford, Garry Who, and Don Barker.
Fair Game will open theatrically July 8 before a digital release July 12. A physical release of the film is planned for August. No word yet on where the screening will take place.
