Jeff Goldblum is a Hong Kong Cavalier alien fighter in THE ADVENTURES OF BUCKAROO BANZAI ACROSS THE 8TH DIMENSION. A 35mm presentation!
Dr. Buckaroo Banzai is a real renaissance man: a physicist, neurosurgeon, test pilot, and even a rock musician. Is there anything he can’t do?! Well, when it comes to saving the world from the band of inter-dimensional aliens the Red Lectroids, he and his crew The Hong Kong Cavaliers are really put to the test. Buckaroo Banzai (aka The Adventures of Buckaroo Banzai Across the 8th Dimension) is brilliantly adventurous and unique film that spans so many genres and has a rather complicated backstory that involves a secret device called an “oscillation overthruster”, travelling to other dimensions, alien hitchhikers, and a madman scientist. A must see!
Amongst an incredible cast featuring Peter Weller, John Lithgow, and Christopher Lloyd, Jeff Goldblum is the neurosurgeon Dr. Sidney Zweibel (nickname: New Jersey) who sings, dances, plays the piano and dresses like a cowboy!
