Worth Watching - April 20: Henry Poole Is Here Trailer
The first trailer for Mark Pellington's comedy Henry Poole Is Here has finally debuted. The film initially debuted at the Sundance Film Festival and was bought by Overture Films. Luke Wilson stars as Henry Poole, a guy who has nearly given up on life until his neighbor finds the face of Jesus in the stucco on his wall. Yea, it's a high concept, but apparently it played pretty well at Sundance and it looks at least mediocre. Maybe it's better than this trailer is making it out to be? At least they chose some great music and at least Radha Mitchell looks like a worthy addition to the cast.
Watch the trailer for Henry Poole Is Here:
Henry Poole Is Here is directed by music video director Mark Pellington, who also directed Arlington Road and U2 3D as well. The film was written by newcomer Albert Torres. After debuting at the Sundance Film Festival in January this, Henry Poole Is Here is being released in theaters on August 15th.

The music is good and this trailer is decent... but if its to preachy and more about Jesus, then I don't want to see it... that just ain't my thing. It is an interesting concept though considering how people reacted to the Mary face in the grilled cheese sandwich... I just don't get people.

Maybe they'll spin it so that it's not focused on "Jesus" but instead showing how faith (in anything) can change lives. Regardless, it's got that indie feel and I'll be seeing it.

If you missed this film the first time around and are a Luke Wilson fan, I have to encourage you to check out the newly released family version. I absolutely loved this movie! It was such a great story about a real life guy who was struggling with his faith and accepting it. This is something that I've been struggling with myself for the past couple of years. It was such an encouragement to see this played out. And it's really cool that I've found a site, http://www.henrypoolebelieves.com. Right now it looks like they are giving away 10 copies of the movie for free. If you haven't seen the movie yet, or even if you have, you could always give it to a friend, but it's definitely worth checking out! It's a PERFECT film for a FAMILY movie night!
