Paul Gerben City of Dreams Poster NFT

For art fans (or anyone capable of executing a Google search) it’s hard not to be elated over the upcoming opportunity to collect a piece of art by legendary fine artist, Paul Gerben.

 

Known for his medium-bending approach to creating art, Gerben has worked with many of the world’s most iconic figures, some of whom are also among his most famous collectors–Barack Obama and Leonardo DiCaprio to name a few.

 

From his pop art to photojournalism, Gerben’s artistic range is as impressive as the final products. Given City of Dreams’ focus on child slavery and the trafficking rings that make it possible, Gerben’s poster art takes a straightforward approach by recreating the film’s poster using the photos of missing children.

 

Those looking to collect limited edition NFTs of Gerben’s City of Dreams poster only have to do three simple things:

 

  • Attend a screening of City of Dreams between August 30th and September 30th and save your ticket stub/receipt.
  • Join the Mogul Telegram chat.
  • Share a photo of your City of Dreams ticket stub/receipt in the Mogul Telegram chat.

 

To learn more about Paul Gerben, this profile and interview by Elevated Magazines is an excellent read.

Eyeing A Late 2024 Release Harvester of Eyes Brings Hellacious Terror to Mogul Productions

From the depths of Hell to the Earthly realm, demons who’ve found a new way of collecting souls will terrorize humanity in Harvester of Eyes, an upcoming horror film from Charach and Mogul Productions.

Directed by Mark Polonia, Harvester of Eyes begins shooting in Fall 2024 and will bring to screen a terrifyingly gruesome tale about demonic entities stealing eyes in order to gain access to the souls of their victims.

Given the cult popularity of the horror genre, Mogul Productions along with Executive Producer, Randy Charach, and Producer, David Sterling, cannot wait to make willing audiences squirm as Hellspawn pluck eyes and steal souls.

Texas Nightmare Showcases Fragility of the Mind Through Writer’s Block and a Murderous Cult

When a case of writer’s block sends an author to a remote cabin in the Texas hill country, she quickly learns that there are worse things than being uninspired.

 

Texas Nightmare, a horror film from Charach Productions and Michael Merino, plays with many of the elements that have served the genre well: isolation, remote cabins, and of course, a murderous cult.

 

As our author confines herself to a cabin to force herself to finish her novel, her plan to find creation through solitude is undone by the realization she is not alone. Meeting a deadline takes on new meaning for her as her sole focus becomes that of survival instead of turning out pages.

 

The cast features horror veterans Felissa Rose and Sadie Katz (who stars in another upcoming Randy Charach and Mogul film, Clutch), as well as an exciting cast of characters. 

With production set to wrap for Texas Nightmare around the end of summer 2024, Mogul Productions in partnership with MCM Productions and Charach Productions is eyeing a possible late 2025 release. As a result, the Mogul community can expect unique reward and support opportunities to go live really soon. From a role in the film, to collecting props to producer credits, there will be a variety of ways to support the release of Texas Nightmare.

Best American Movies

As Americans celebrate 248 years of independence today, let’s celebrate some of the best American movies ever made. Criteria for this can be pretty loose, but we’ll focus on what films best sum up the American experience.

 

1.Forrest Gump – One of the most successful films from the 90s, Tom Hanks portrayal of Forrest Gump produced easily one of the greatest American films of all-time.

 

As Forrest finds himself at key moments throughout American history, his character and the overall story represents a true underdog story. And if folks remember correctly, underdogs are what helped America break free from the rule of a King.

 

  1. Rambo First Blood – One of Sylvester Stallone’s most famous roles, Rambo First Blood tells the story of a Vietnam veteran who returned home from an awful war, only to feel discarded by society.

 

While it may not be the most pleasant American experience, not all American experiences have been pleasant. It’s been a complex and challenging pursuit of the perfect union, and sending men off to seemingly pointless wars has been part of that.

 

In Rambo, John Rambo finds himself at war with the local sheriff after he arrives in town to look for an old friend. This confrontation is central to one of the eighties’ most iconic movies.

 

  1. Independence Day – Literally named after the 4th of July, it wouldn’t feel right to leave this movie off the list, despite the fact that it’s about fighting off an alien invasion of Earth.

 

Will Smith and Bill Paxton turned into classic performances for this most beloved movie. Sure it may not be a premise rooted in Americana outright but it certainly reflects the American spirit as humanity comes together to repel the alien forces and save the day.

 

  1. Band Of Brothers – Speaking of humanity coming together to repel evil, Band Of Brothers has to make the list given its historical value of being one of the most successful WW2 war docuseries ever produced.

 

Depicting the heroics of Easy Company, 506th Regiment of the 101st Airborne Division, U.S. Army, Band Of Brothers was a great vehicle to showcase the sacrifices and efforts made by allied troops during WW2. It also showcased the value of great effort and attention to detail from a filmmaking perspective, winning it numerous Emmys.Emma’s.

 

  1. Tombstone – A list of best American movies wouldn’t be complete without something from the wild west, and since a Will Smith film was already listed, we can’t just end easily with Wild Wild West.

 

Fortunately, Tombstone exists. Based on the series of the events leading up to the

shootout at the O.K. Corral, Tombstone is a timeless piece of American entertainment and cinema. Kurt Russell, Val Kilmer, and Sam Elliot (among others) turned in legendary performances that honored the likes of American western icons like Wyatt Earp and Doc Holliday.

Audiences Will Discover Not All Games Are Fun in Mogul’s Newest Film Homicide/Suicide

Some men claim all women are crazy, which isn’t a fair assessment of course, unless you happen to be one of six men being held hostage by a woman in clown makeup and being forced to play a game for your life.

 

And that’s precisely the premise of Mogul Productions’ newest film, Homicide/Suicide, which is directed by Dale Stelly and stars Robert Ri’chard, Marcus T. Paulk, and Sasha Del Valle.

 

Written by Mogul’s own Head of Development, Randy Charach, in addition to A.B. Dollars and director, Dale Stelly, Homicide/Suicide is a demented thriller that might feel a bit familiar to audiences who’ve seen any of the Saw movies. However, as they’ll learn, not all games are the same–and they’re certainly not all fun.

 

“The plot for this film was inspired by a blend of real-life events and the desire to explore universal themes such as resilience, human connection, and the complexities of personal growth,” said Randy Charach. “We wanted to create characters and situations that audiences could relate to on a deep emotional level while also offering a unique perspective or twist that challenges conventional thinking.”

 

The film leans heavy into the concept of revenge as well as redemption, but for the six men being held hostage, it will take a bit for them to understand why they earned one woman’s wrath. Make no mistake though, they’ve earned it, and if they hope to get out alive they’ll need to win the game at the expense of each other. Then again, there might not be any winners after all.

 

Only way to find out is to watch Homicide/Suicide when it hits streaming platforms late 2024/early 2025.

 

“Ultimately, we want viewers to reflect on the human condition and perhaps see their own experiences mirrored in the characters’ journeys,” added Charach. “The film is intended to be thought-provoking yet accessible, offering both entertainment and a deeper exploration of what it means to be human.”

Clutch Brings High Stakes Thrill Ride to Mogul Productions

From Charach Productions and Michael Merino, Clutch will look to honor no frills action flicks with this story of a rideshare driver who finds herself caught up in the problems of her passenger.

 

Unfortunately for Tonya (Sadie Katz), that passenger happens to be a mob hitman trying to outmaneuver his vengeful former boss and get out of Los Angeles alive.

 

Kaiwi Lyman plays Xavier, the hitman and passenger who will certainly be getting a 1-star rating after taking Tonya and himself on the ride of their lives in this gritty thriller that plunges audiences into the dark underbelly of Los Angeles.

 

“Los Angeles feels like living in a modern-day frontier town, combining industry, recent immigrants, old 

world money, cowboys, modern day bikers, and dreamers of every shape and size,” says Clutch Writer-Director Michael Merino. “A real-world ‘Star Wars 

cantina’ spread across the landscape filled with hamlets and villages touched by every culture throughout the world. Yet, at night, the ‘ghosts and goblins’ come out to play.”

 

With Mogul Productions Head of Film Development, Randy Charach, serving as the Executive Producer of Clutch, Mogul is eager for audiences to see a film produced by one of their own.

 

“It’s terrific to see Mogul partnering on this film,” said James Pratt, Mogul’s Head of Film Production. “Clutch features solid acting from Sadie and Kaiwi, and having Randy as executive producer working with director Michael Merino again will be a real treat for the audience.”

 

Currently in post-production, Clutch is slated for a release date sometime in the latter part of 2024. In the build up to release there will be a variety of ways for Mogul community members to come along for the ride while earning perks and unique opportunities as part of campaigns tied to Clutch.
