The movie City of Ember now has a teaser poster!
No, this doesn’t look ODDLY familiar at all!
I smell a lawsuit! Or at least a schoolyard slapping match over copyright infringement. SOMETHING.
The movie sounds like one of those schnazzy new kiddie flicks that have been coming out the past few years. Here’s the synop:
For generations, the people of the City of Ember have flourished in an amazing world of glittering lights. But Ember’s once powerful generator is failing … and the great lamps that illuminate the city are starting to flicker. Now, two teenagers in a race against time, must search Ember for clues that will unlock the ancient mystery of the city’s existence, and help the citizens escape before the lights go out forever.
Sounds kind of interesting. The cast alone would probably make me go see the movie, including Bill Murray, Tim Robbins, Martin Landau, Saoirse Ronan (pronounced “SIR-SHA”, who played young Briony in Atonement, and Susie Salmon in the upcoming Peter Jackson drama The Lovely Bones), and Harry Treadaway (I wouldn’t really go for him alone, because I have no idea who he is. Though he kind of looks like Skandar Keynes, who plays Edmund Pevensie in the Narnia movies, which is who I actually thought this WAS until I looked it up online. He’s been in, well, nothing of note as of yet).
Should be interesting! This film flickers its way into theaters October 10.
