T-SHIRT TUESDAY - Buckaroo Banzai

Happy 2016! We're kicking off the new year with a post about this pretty sweet new arrival, a promo t-shirt from the 1984 theatrical release of The Adventures of Buckaroo Banzai Across the Eighth Dimension. Banzai is a cult classic starring Peter Weller, John Lithgow, Ellen Barkin, Jeff Goldblum and Christopher Lloyd. I haven't had the pleasure of watching it yet (I know, I know), but seen it described as "one of the most original films ever made, and one of the most criminally underrated". 
Adventurer/surgeon/rock musician Buckaroo Banzai and his band of men, the Hong Kong Cavaliers, take on evil alien invaders from the 8th dimension. Here's a little trailer tease...
The cast is quite the ensemble. Here's Buckaroo and the Hong Kong Cavaliers (can you say #squadgoals?)... 
The hero, himself (played by Peter Weller
The villain, Lord John Whorfin/Dr. Emilio Lizardo (played by John Lithgow)

The love interest, Penny Priddy (played by Ellen Barkin)

The sidekick, New Jersey (played by Jeff Goldblum)
I hope we all get our hands on a copy of this on VHS, soon!
