The Argues The Movie Release!
20 Sep 2011

“That is a fantastic idea and a great thing to do. Congratulations!”

– Australian Prime Minister Julia Gillard

 Blue Pie Productions is pleased to announce that the new Australian film The Argues The Movie will be released in capital cities on September 24th in a release exclusive to Hoyts Theatres for one week only!

The Argues The Movie is a story of how a son, a mother, and a duck named Leon Skank assault the Hollywood star system in an attempt to secure work through one of the biggest international actors’ agents in the world, Ed Tomato at ICU Management Los Angeles. However, things don‘t go so well! The ramifications of their approach to secure Ed as an agent result in a chase around the world and the World Wide Web after “Skanky” David’s puppet duck becomes the talk of the town. This is a story of remembrance, rehabilitation and outrageous situations that offer a bizarre insight into the world of showbiz and the struggles of an out of work actor. ARGUEably a funny, mad and eccentric trip!

Blue Pie will be working with Barry Crocker and the Adopt-A-Pensioner Campaign for the films cinematic release. This comes after Barry Crocker’s meeting with Prime Minister Julia Gillard to discuss propositions for the Adopt-A-Pensioner campaign, which he is heavily involved in. Amongst his propositions, the Adopt-A-Pensioner campaign will now be working with The Argues The Movie, encouraging Australians to Adopt-A-Pensioner by taking a pensioner to the movie for free!

After pitching the idea of the ‘take a pensioner to THE ARGUES for free’ campaign to Prime Minister Julia Gillard, she responded: “That is a fantastic idea and a great thing to do. Congratulations!”

David Argue, Patricia Argue, Leon Skank, Mark Hembrow (director/producer), Steven Tandy, and Barry Crocker are available for interviews by request.
