The cosplay-fantasy film, ‘CAPTAIN BLACK’, starring Jeffrey Johnson, Linara Washington, and Georgia Norman releases via Random Media on DVD, On-Demand and on all digital platforms July 17.
Directed by Jeffrey Johnson, ‘CAPTAIN BLACK’ follows Mike, a mild-mannered restaurant manager whose life gets turned upside down the night he discovers a mysterious bag left behind by one of his employees. Inside are several comic books, including one about a superhero, Captain Black, that totally captures his imagination. He is especially taken with Captain Black’s sexy cohort, a beautiful heroine named Kitt Vixen, whose fantasy allure is so intoxicating that it has even inspired porn sites.
A Halloween party gives Mike the opportunity to act out his superhero fantasy as he dresses up in a homemade Captain Black costume. Putting on the suit gives Mike confidence and courage. To his delight, he meets up with a costumed Kitt Vixen (Georgia Norman), who seduces him and gives him a night to remember. Before he can even ask her for her name, she disappears into the night.
Mike is content to consider this adventure a lovely memory until fast forward two months later when he meets up with her again, accidentally. But every fantasy has its price. Out of costume, he discovers she’s not the women he thought she was, and this revelation makes him question every aspect of his life, including his relationship with his estranged sister (Kirsten Roeters) and his abused next-door neighbor (Liesel Kopp) and her son (Nico David). Even his best friend and closest confidante, Kris (Linara Washington), can’t help him now.
It’s only when he remembers what Captain Black has inspired inside him that he realizes he has the strength within himself to withstand life’s challenges and be his own ally.
‘CAPTAIN BLACK’, a popular cosplay-fan genre, has had rave reviews on the film festival circuit winning Best Director and Best Actress at the 2018 Atlantic City Cinefest, Best Director at the 2018 Hollywood Reel Independent Film Festival and at the 2018 Indie Gathering International Film Festival to name but a few.
