#90: Idio(cra)cy

September 3, 2006

Notes from the Manager

Another single-panel this time, because I need a Labor Day weekend, just like you guys. I’ll make up for it later this week, promise. I just didn’t have time to finish the longer update I’d started.

Jason’s “poster” and Quint’s “Open Letter to FOX” at Ain’t It Cool News pretty much sum up my opinion of how FOX has handled the release of this film. Even if FOX honestly thought the movie sucked and/or would deeply offend all the morons in the US (62,040,610 of them, last time our country counted), when was the last time that stopped a Hollywood studio from promoting a movie?! Practically everybody I know has seen Office Space five or six times — of course some of them would check out Idiocracy… if they knew it existed!

UPDATE (from the future): A trailer made its way to the internet (long, long after the film hit video), and I thought I’d include it for people who aren’t familiar with the film:

Trailer Watch: The Theory of Everything trailer

Friday, August 15, 2014

There’s no telling how the film will turn out, but the trailer for The Theory of Everything impressed me by having a respectably balanced focus on both the life of Stephen Hawking (and relationship with his first wife) and the work he is so admired for, unlike so many other film biographies of so-called Great Men.

James Marsh (Man on Wire) directs Eddie Redmayne and Felicity Jones in the November 7th release.
