It's hot and sticky

The Boy

Like many teen boys, Danny is bad with girls. He has two interests, Manga comics and movies. Used to going to the multiplex and falling in love with the screen goddess of the week, he is as surprised as his long suffering little sister when he falls head over heels for Suki, one of the usherettes. Suki also happens to look exactly like his favourite Manga heroine - only with more realistic breasts...

The Plan

Too insecure to approach Suki directly, Danny takes a job at the cinema, only to find that his first day is her last. His 'Plan A' failing fast, Danny desperately attempts to invent a 'Plan B' when he catches the eye of Zak, the guru-like chief projectionist. Zak has his own ideas about how life and romance work - but unfortunately no longer sees any difference between real life and 'reel' life. Zak comes up with Plan C (for 'cinema'): How Danny Will Get Suki Using Movie Logic.

The Film

POPCORN is a teen comedy about getting the girl, losing the plot and the problems you face when you turn to films for inspiration. Movies may influence life, but as Danny finds out to hilarious consequences - rarely in ways you could ever anticipate...

POPCORN. It's cinema. But not as you know it...
