Video: ‘The Banana Splits’ Official Trailer, Coming to DVD This August!

Video: ‘The Banana Splits’ Official Trailer, Coming to DVD This August! — One banana, two banana, three banana… gore?!

A beloved children’s show is back “with a vengeance, a horrible, bloody vengeance,” in Syfy’s The Banana Splits Movie, which released its first trailer on Thursday.

Directed by Danishka Esterhazy (Black Field) and penned by Jed Elinoff and Scott Thomas, the telepic follows a family of four: Harley (played by Finlay Wojtak-Hissong) and his brother Austin (Romeo Carere), plus their parents Beth (Wynonna Earp‘s Dani Kind) and Mitch (Bitten‘s Steve Lund).

While attending a taping of beloved The Banana Splits TV series — starring Fleegle, Bingo, Drooper and Snorky, of course! — things take an unexpectedly deadly turn for Harley and his family.

Press play above to get a taste for the jarring mix of peppy Banana Splits jingle and slasher film mayhem.

Banana Splits Movie Will Terrorize Blu-ray This August — The Banana Splits Movie will be bringing the potentially childhood-ruining R-rated horror shenanigans home this summer. We initially learned in February that the children’s show icons were being revived with a brand new movie. Yet, peculiarly, the series was being given a horror twist. Recently, we were treated to the first, very bizarre and blood-filled trailer for the unlikely reboot. Now, those who are curious to see how this all comes together will get their chance via Blu-ray/DVD this summer.

Warner Bros. Home Entertainment and SyFy have partnered to bring The Banana Splits Movie to digital platforms on August 13. The movie will then make its way to Blu-ray Combo Pack and DVD on August 27. The cover art for the Blu-ray has also been released, which features Drooper, Snorky, Fleegle and Bingo, with Bingo holding onto an ax like Jack Torrence from The Shining. The cover also boasts the tagline “Tra la la terror,” as a play on the original theme song. As for bonus features, here’s what the release will include.

Special Features
• Banana Splits: Behind the Horror
• Terror on Set
• Breaking News! The Banana Splits Massacre

Rated R for “Violence and Gore” — In a surprise move that was probably inspired by the success of Five Nights at Freddy’s, Warner Bros. Home Entertainment and Syfy announced earlier this year that they’re bringing back the characters from Hanna-Barbera’s variety program “The Banana Splits Adventure Hour” for… a horror movie. And not just any horror movie, but a hardcore rated “R” horror movie.

This week the MPAA has given The Banana Splits an R rating for “horror violence and gore“!

Steve to star in ‘The Banana Splits’ a Trippy 1960s Kids Show Turned Horror Thriller

Steve is reportedly set to star in the Warner Bro. Home Entertainment and Syfy production of of the 1960’s show turned horror film The Banana Splits. You can read more below as reported by

Bingo, Fleegle, Drooper and Snorky, the zany collective better known as The Banana Splits, are coming back with a vengeance — and with a body count?

As revivals go, this one may be as audacious as it is unexpected: Warner Bros. Home Entertainment and Syfy are bringing back the Banana Splits, the trippy-dippy characters introduced back in 1968 as the anthropomorphic hosts of The Banana Splits Adventure Hour variety program. This time around, however, the Banana Splits are being served up in a horror thriller.

The original movie will premiere this year from Blue Ribbon Content, Warner Bros Television Group’s digital studio, via a Warner Bros. Home Entertainment release that will be followed by the television debut on Syfy. The official synopsis: “In the upcoming horror thriller, a boy named Harley and his family (brother Austin, mother Beth, and father Mitch) attend a taping of The Banana Splits TV show, which is supposed to be a fun-filled birthday for young Harley and business as usual for Rebecca, the producer of the series. But things take an unexpected turn — and the body count quickly rises. Can Harley, his mom and their new pals safely escape?”

The Banana Splits revival stars Dani Kind (Wyonna Earp) as Beth, Finlay Wojtak-Hissong (The Kindness of Strangers), Romeo Carere as Austin, Steve Lund (Schitt’s Creek) as Mitch and Sara Canning (The Vampire Diaries) as Rebecca. Danishka Esterhazy (Level 16) is directing the horror project from a script by Jed Elinoff & Scott Thomas (Raven’s Home). The Banana Splits is produced by Blue Ribbon Content in association with Warner Bros. Home Entertainment and SYFY.

Steve to star in Hallmark Movies & Mysteries Original Film “The Christmas Cottage” airing December 9th!

Steve will be staring as Ean in the new original Hallmark film “The Christmas Cottage” which is based off the novel by author Samantha Chase. The movie premieres Sunday, December 9th at 9PM on the Hallmark Movies & Mysteries channel.

You can find the official promotional photos and production stills from the film in the gallery now along with the official press release with the film’s synopsis below!

Merritt Patterson (“The Royals,” “A Royal Winter”) and Steve Lund (“Reign,” “The Art of Us”) star in “The Christmas Cottage,” a new original premiering Sunday, December 9 (9 p.m. ET/PT) on Hallmark Movies & Mysteries. Part of the network’s popular, annual “Most Wonderful Movies of Christmas” programming event, Brittney Wilson (“Gap Year”) and Victor Zinck (“Motive”) also star.

Taking a rare break from her career designing modern buildings, Lacey (Patterson) travels to her friend Ava’s (Wilson) Christmas Eve wedding. Though her business partner and boyfriend Roger (Zinck) is concerned about her taking time off right before an important sales pitch, Lacey promises to work in between her maid of honor duties. While at the wedding events, Lacey reconnects with her former flame, Ean (Lund). The two decorate the cottage where the newlyweds will spend their honeymoon – a cottage said to bring true love to anyone who stays there – and feel their chemistry return. When Ean confesses his feelings for Lacey, though, she is unable to acknowledge her own. Heartbroken, Ean takes a job in Finland, and plans to leave Christmas day. As Christmas approaches, Lacey sees the sharp contrast between Ean’s family values and Roger’s sole focus on work, and must decide if the professional goals she shares with Roger or the connection and history she shares with Ean are more important in a lasting relationship.

“The Christmas Cottage” is a Cabin Productions Inc. production. Paul A. Kaufman, Joey
Plager, Sean Williamson and Jamie Goehring are the executive producers. John MacCarthy is the
producer. Paul A. Kaufman directed from a script by Claudia Grazioso.

Taylor Cole and Steve Lund Star in Hallmark Channel’s ‘THE ART OF US’, Premiering 5/20

Taylor Cole (“The Originals,” “Christmas at Homestead”) and Steve Lund (“Schitt’s Creek,” “Reign”) star in Hallmark Channel’s THE ART OF US, a new original movie premiering Saturday, May 20 (9 p.m. ET/PT). The film also has a prominent story arc for “Vincent the Dog” and other adorable canines, part of Crown Media Family Networks’ (home of Hallmark CHANNEL and Hallmark Movies & Mysteries) global pet initiative and the company’s steadfast commitment to end pet homelessness by using entertainment to show the joys pets bring to our lives every day. Crown Media Family Networks produces pet-centric original movies and specials (“Kitten Bowl,” “Meow Madness,” “Hero Dog Awards”) to create awareness for the beautiful animals at local shelters waiting to find a forever home.

“The Art of Us” is a modern retelling of “My Fair Lady.” Dr. Harper Higgins (Cole) is determined to land a tenured position at Boston College, and she is counting on curating a big art gallery at the university to do so. But when Higgins loses her showcase artist and can find no one else, she turns to her recently hired dog walker Tom Stone (Lund) who, unbeknownst to anyone, is a very skilled painter. Transforming Tom into a credible, respected artist is going to take work, but Dr. Higgins feels up to the challenge. The only complication comes when professor and artist fall for each other during the charade and risk being outed by a competing professor.

“We are fortunate to continue developing innovative content while simultaneously partnering with tremendously talented actors such as Taylor Cole and Steve Lund,” said Michelle Vicary, Executive Vice President, Programming and Publicity.

“Taylor Cole and Steve Lund radiate the screen and we have no doubt they will create a masterpiece together with ‘The Art of Us,'” Vicary concluded.

“The Art of Us” is an Art of Us Films Inc production. Howard Braunstein and Sydell Albert are executive producers. Christian Bruyere is producer. Kristoffer Tabori directs from the teleplay by Karen Berger, based on the book by Teri Wilson.
