Stephen Sommers used to be the king of dumb CG movies with the success of the first two The Mummy movies, but it seems both Van Helsing and G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra have seen the writer/director’s star dwindle. His latest film, Odd Thomas, a supernatural thriller based on the novel by Dean Koontz and starring Anton Yelchin, has had a long road to the big screen after dealing with some legal entanglements following its 2011 production, but it’s finally making its way to theaters and On Demand on February 28.
The first official trailer for the picture has arrived along with an official synopsis:
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 serious trouble. Teaming up with his sweetheart Stormy (Addison Timlin) and the local sheriff (Willem Dafoe), Odd plunges into an epic battle of good versus evil to try to stop a disaster of apocalyptic proportions.
If you remember That Awkward Moment (because I know none of you actually saw the movie), you’ll remember the name Addison Timlin. She had that thankless, fuck-buddy role in the film. I can’t say I see this film doing her any favors either.
