Long Delayed 'Odd Thomas' Starring Anton Yelchin Gets First Trailer
After being delayed indefinitely last summer in a legal dispute, Image Entertainment picked up the adaptation of Dean Koontz's Odd Thomas starring Anton Yelchin, and the film is coming to theaters and iTunes later this month. It seems like an unceremonious release for a film that some fans have been waiting to see, but there you have it. The film follows a short-order cook named Odd Thomas who can talk with the dead, leading him to help the silent souls who seek him out, sometimes wanting justice done and helping the police solve, or even prevent, a crime. The movie doesn't look bad from this trailer, and it might be good.
Here's the first trailer for Stephen Sommers' Odd Thomas, originally from Apple:
Small-town fry cook Odd Thomas (Anton Yelchin) is an ordinary guy with a paranormal secret: he sees dead people, everywhere. When a creepy stranger shows up with an entourage of ghostly bodices—predators who feed on pain and portend mass destruction—Odd knows that his town is in trouble. Teaming up with his sweetheart Stormy (Addison Timlin) and the local sheriff (Willem Dafoe), Odd plunges into an epic battle of good vs. evil to try to stop a disaster of apocalyptic proportions. Stephen Sommers (The Mummy, G.I. Joe: Rise of Cobra) writes & directs the Dean Koontz adaptation hitting iTunes and theaters February 28th.

??? I saw this movie a half year ago! It was funny but nothing special...

I kinda liked this movie. The trailer did not do a good job of selling the tone of the movie. It is a hard movie to market, it is all over the place, action, dark comedy, thriller etc, but it works... Has good humor and some cool(but cheap) effects... Good thing they did not show anything from the third act in the trailer. 7 or 8 out of 10. Would have liked a followup, but seeing as I saw this movie on Blu-Ray and never knew it existed before I saw the cover on amazon I guess that is not happening...

Eh...no. Epic music on not-epic trailer doesn't compute. Only special thing was the dancing boobies on 2.25. Make sure you don't miss them!

that was a strange trailer. It was like it was trying to be subtle but loud and suspenseful at the same time. Editing was fine, but whoever mashed it with the music needs to practice more :/ Looks like a cool movie though. 'Bout time Koontz got to the big screen. Hopefully the film will make enough so the studios will want to adapt more of his stuff.
