Wayyy back in the antediluvian days of July, we brought word that Stephen Sommers‘ Dean Koontz adaptation “Odd Thomas,” starring Anton Yelchin, Addison Timlin, Willem Dafoe and Patton Oswalt, was being delayed, perhaps indefinitely. It seemed like a shame, because it looked like a nifty little supernatural flick, featuring Yelchin as a fry cook with certain paranormal powers who gets mixed up in something spooky in a Southwestern town. We knew the film existed, but it looked like it was maybe angling for a place on our list of movies that were shot but never released.
But no! A reprieve is at hand, and after lawyers for various production companies completed the mandated 666 rounds of ritual combat, an agreement was reached that has “Odd Thomas” hitting theaters and iTunes on February 28th. This of course doesn’t give those same production companies much time to get some publicity out there, so behold, a trailer! Yelchin is immensely likeable and the semi-corporeal monstrosities look great, so this should be a fun little flick. [FirstShowing]
