The 1993 sci/fi action movie, Demolition Man, was released 25 years ago and starred Sylvester Stallone, Sandra Bullock and Wesley Snipes. The film takes place in 2032, only 14 years in our future, and John Spartan (Sylvester Stallone) learns from partner, Lenina Huxley (Sandra Bullock), that Taco Bell survived the Franchise Wars and is the only restaurant left standing. Can you imagine only being able to eat Taco Bell? Have you ever thought about how cool that would be to visit a futuristic Taco Bell? You have your chance! You have to go to the San Diego Comic Con to see it, though. Read on to find out more!
Via Bloody Disgusting’s Press Release:
At this year’s San Diego Comic Con, specifically from Thursday, July 19th to Saturday, July 21st, Taco Bell will be paying tribute to the 25th anniversary of Demolition Man with a limited time pop-up shop dubbed Taco Bell 2032: Demolition Man Experience, a recreation of the futuristic Taco Bell seen in the film!
After making the biggest debut in Taco Bell history in January, the hugely popular Nacho Fries are back for a summer sequel, returning to menus July 12. To celebrate their return, Taco Bell will honor the 25th Anniversary of Warner Bros. Pictures’ action sci-fi film Demolition Man, and its prediction of a utopian future where “all restaurants are Taco Bell,” with a re-creation of the iconic restaurant from the movie.
Demolition Man, a 1993 Warner Bros. Pictures’ cult-classic in its own right, gained fame for its utopian predictions of 2032 – where Taco Bell was the only restaurant to survive the Franchise Wars. But since the film’s release 25 years ago – one question remains unanswered: how?
Leading up to the July 12 return of Nacho Fries, answers will be revealed in the sequel to the Web of Fries I ad campaign, culminating with a Demolition Man pop-up and a futuristic and upscale Taco Bell dining experience July 19 – 21 in San Diego just outside the Holy Grail of science fiction. More details and sneak peeks into the experience to follow.
This sounds like an awesome experience! Let’s hope they didn’t recreate the three seashell system. Any of you out there heading to SDCC?
