Trailer Tuesday: SPECIAL

By at November 11, 2008 | 8:43 pm | Print

Now, here’s something interesting. This film played at Sundance and several other film festivals two years ago and is just now coming to theaters. Not only that, it will be available through Video-on-Demand for you to enjoy in your very own home. This little indie gets its chance and I can only hope that means good things for all the rest out there.

Special stars Michael Rapaport (Prison Break, The War at Home) as Les, a man enrolled in a clinical drug trial for an antidepressent medication.  Warning: nausea, drowsiness, and superhero powers may occur.

Les has gained some special powers as a result of the medicine – just a little flying, telepathy, and the ability to walk through walls, nothing to worry about. What else can a man do with these new found abilities other than fight crime? The trailer shows him repeatedly throwing himself at evildoers, getting bloodier and bloodier each time. Turns out, the real side effect is hallucinations.

This film is being released as part of the Six Shooter Film Series which is releasing six sci-fi-ish films, each from a different country including my favorite, Time Crimes as well as the acclaimed teen vampire film (no, not Twilight) Let the Right One In. Catch Special at home or in the theater…and then tell me about it because I don’t have cable.

Release Date: November 21st in NY; November 28 in LA; or now on your T.V.!

Also Starring: Josh Peck (The Wackness)

    I love that Time Crimes is included in the series. What a cool and wild movie. If it were American-made, people in the US would be falling all over it; instead, very few people will even see it.

    You’d be interested to know, Norm that in fact America is doing a remake. United Artists bought the rights and there has been some speculation that David Cronenberg might direct.
