The premiere of the Cousins Brothers Productions, Night Marchers, will take place in theaters throughout the Hawaiian Islands on October 25th, 2019.
With an ensemble cast and production team, made up entirely of local talent, Night Marchers was produced on the Big Island and is poised to once again set box office records.
The original Night Marchers was produced 20 years ago and released in 2001, with a sequel the following year. Identical twins and Big Island film makers, Blake and Brent Cousins, smashed box office records with their original release. Now 20 years later they are back on the Big Screen with with a re-telling of the legend of the Night Marchers; Supernatural Hawaiian Warriors who protect the King’s trails. Sightings of the Night Marchers have been reported on each of the Hawaiian islands.
The Cousins Brothers developed their original story for the film by compiling reports from law enforcement officials, member of local fire departments, and Kupuna from all over the islands. These reports include recurring testimony from residents who have seen the Night Marchers right in their own living rooms. The pounding of drums, and distant torches that come into focus as the Night Marchers appear.
The legend of the Night Marchers has sent chills through the people of Hawaii for generations and the Cousins Brothers deliver again with the latest version of the legend that will be sure to raise chicken skin for all that see it!
Executive Producer and Director, Brent Cousins, hopes that the current release of the Night Marchers will achieve the same impact that the original film enjoyed twenty years ago. Brent states, “the new generation will experience the terror of the Night Marchers, and the message of respecting their culture and their aina”.
Executive Producer and Editor, Blake Cousins, is both proud and humble to have the opportunity to bring the legend of The Night Marchers to Hawaii audiences once again in this digital age. According to Blake, “as a local independent film maker, I’ve always wanted to create a Hawaiian-Style-Film Industry where local actors and producers have films shown on the Big Screen, made in Hawaii for Hawaii, with an international appeal, while showcasing the Islands’ unique culture and majestic locations.”
The film begins twenty years later after the original when a Hollywood reality television producer comes up with the idea to pick up the story and travel to Hawaii to hunt for the paranormal legend and document the existence of Night Marchers. What he and his camera crew experience is far more than they bargained for.
The talent pool for Hawaii born and bred actors is deep as seen in the performances of local actors: Kealii Kanekoa and Anuhea La. Their performances in the NIGHT MARCHERS is sure to pave the way for future talent from Hawaii following in the footsteps of Dwayne Johnson and Jason Mamoa.
The Cousins Brothers Productions team of Brent and Blake Cousins has been active in film making for more than thirty years. This award winning duo has to their credit made: seven feature length films, an internationally renown youtube channel Thirdphaseofmoon with 750,000 subscribers that began in 2008, and in the production of commercial and documentary films. Blake and Brent are always working, but their happiest when making movies and this latest version of the Night Marchers was a true labor of love. Working in remote jungle locations created challenges that the Cousins Brothers and the entire NIGHT MARCHERS crew met with a creative vigor that they believe can be seen in the film.
The goal is the same as it was 20 years ago. To produce feature length films here in Hawaii that utilize the talent of the people of Hawaii and that entertain and celebrate Hawaii. For people the world over love Hawaii.
