Right now I don’t know who to believe. I suppose I’ve got to believe the official web site, because it says “Children of Men” opens December 25th, but IMDB shows it opening on September 29th. It does seem like a weird movie to open on Christmas day, unless of course you tie-in the “birth that will save the world” thing, but here’s the basic story…

It’s a few years from now, and for whatever reason that no one can seem to figure out, no one can get pregnant, and that means we are facing our own extinction. Science is baffled, the public is going crazy, and the cities are not safe places to live. Then some underground folks find a pregnant girl, and they must get her to the safety where the public won’t tear her apart, and scientists can safely study her and make sure she actually delivers that child.

Looks like a wacky futuristic movie, but nothing to fantastic at this point. I guess this is on my “wait and see” list right now.

That’s it for this preview! I’m The Dude on the Right!! L8R!!!
