Rate this post

Sony Pictures will open Legendary Pictures’ The Machine on May 26, 2023. 

The Peter Atencio directed movie takes place 23 years after the original story which inspired it. In the pic, comedian/star Bert Kreischer faces a familial crisis and the arrival of his estranged father (Mark Hamill) when the ghost of his booze-soaked past arrives: a murderous mobster (Iva Babić) hellbent on kidnapping Bert back to the motherland to atone for his crimes. Together, he and his father must retrace the steps of his younger self (Jimmy Tatro) in the midst of a war between a sociopathic crime family while they attempt to find common ground.

Kreischer will perform an exclusive live pre-show event in Los Angeles on May 25 at 6:00pm PST at a theater location to-be-announced. The pre-show, which will be simulcast across 1,000+ theaters nationwide, will be followed by the first preview screening of the film. Tickets will go on sale at a later date. 

Kevin Biegel and Scotty Landes wrote the screenplay based on Kreischer’s stand-up routine. The Machine  is produced by Kreischer, Cale Boyter, Judi Marmel, Peter Atencio, and LeeAnn Kreischer. Jay Ashenfelter and Philip Waley serve as executive producers. The film also stars Jimmy Tatro, Iva Babić, Robert Maaser, Stephanie Kurtzuba, Jessica Gabor, Rita Bernard Shaw, Nikola Đuričko, Oleg Taktarov, Amelie Villers, and Mercedes de la Cruz.
