Creation

 
The film Creation is being shown at the upcoming Toronto International Film Festival [Creation]. One of the viewings is at Roy Thompson Hall at 8PM on Thursday, Sept. 10. Anyone interested?

  1. I'd like to see it but I just called TIFF and at $21.00 for a single film is well out of my league. I'll be there when it hits the theatres at regular prices.

  2. At least you'll get a chance to see it. It still does not have an American distributor, and we can only speculate why. It's quite an engaging movie.

  3. Any chance the Charles McVety sideshow will turn up to protest it?

    No worries. The DVD will probably be available within weeks after premiere. You will get a chance to see it if you are sufficiently interested in it. That's the beauty of it - you can get the latest Mongolian art house hit if that's what you really want. Not to mention a British movie with Jennifer Connelly in a familiar role of The Wife.

    According to http://teaser-trailer.com/2009/08/
    creation-movie-trailer.html:

    "By the way the movie could be retitled Origin in the USA according to IMDB, it’s probably to try to deflect criticism from the Creationist lobby…"

  7. Interesting, but Paul Bettany often plays villains in movies, and has a history of drug addiction. Not that creationists would ever focus on that.

  8. I have been half dreading this movie ever since I saw it described as "part ghost story". I have this nagging feeling that Lady Hope will turn up at the end, played by Reese Witherspoon.
    Perhaps the film-makers could release a DVD with two alternative endings - the US market version with the Lady Hope, ghosts and a 'happy ending', when Darwin debunks his own theory and returns to Christ, and the other for the rest of us, simply telling the real story!

  9. I want to see this movie (partially because I like the actors), however, I'm weary of history as portrayed by non-documentary film. For instance, I don't think anyone was impressed by the historical accuracy of the last film about science featuring Jennifer Connelly, i.e., A Beautiful Mind.

  10. I am not very impressed with the trailer. For one thing Jennifer Connelly looks too pretty to be playing Emma Darwin. Maybe Connelly and Bettany had a "buy one get one 50% off" scheme.
