“I just wanted to come out and say, thank you [to] everyone that has come out and supported the film. We really put a lot of blood, sweat and tears in this movie, literally. So, I think this movie is going to be something that you guys can all appreciate. I’m pretty sure you are going to like it.”
He also asked his fans to Tweet, Facebook and use their social media to let everyone know about the film.
