Carriers is an upcoming 2009 Horror movies, but sadly it won’t be released globally, and only selected US theaters (or we like to call it here as cinema). So if your living in:
- Atlanta, GA
- Charlotte, NC
- Denver, CO
- Detroit, MI
- Minneapolis, MN
- Philadelphia, PA
- Pittsburgh, PA
- Phoenix, AZ
- Portland, OR
- St. Louis, MO
you might be lucky to catch it short in distance, starting September 4th, 2009. But for biggest cities like LA, New York or Chicago, it won’t be so lucky. So drive your way hours to reach the closest listed theater.
Its very interesting to know that, this film was completed in the year 2007, (yes the year which I quoted in the past that Chris Pine didn’t realese any movie). And apparently, it was also being screened in the same year. And as an addition facts, the film has since been collecting dust under Paramount Vantage. Kinda sad to know, right?
I hardly agree on Perez Hilton, but this time I have to agree with him/her (Yes, be confuse everyone for his sexualities). He mention on his post New Chris Pine Movie Is Most Likely Crap! that:
Carriers has apparently been on the shelf for quite some time, with industry insiders speculating the only reason the movie is seeing any release at all is because of Pine’s success with Star Trek.
They’re probably right!
And The Horrors Squad call it as a Bummer:
Well this is a bummer. Carriers wasn’t even on my radar until Paramount Vantage put out a chain of intense trailers showing a world ravaged by viral pandemic. Now, according to Fangoria, I’m not even going to have the opportunity to see Chris Pine and Piper Perabo wear cute surgical masks while they try to survive the end of times. You can’t go from “What’s Carriers?” to “Man, I can’t wait to see Carriers!” to “What do you mean I can’t see Carriers?”. That’s just mean, Paramount Vantage.
I find this amazing (I’m being sarcastic here), and I really believe to that, since Chris Pine success in his Star Trek work with solid-electric-drama-arts-performance, and now all the publisher/producer/production companies will believed that what ever film Chris Pine in, they would get extreme profit although the movie story-line is heading for a train-wreck.
Hmm. I have mix verdicts on this behaviors. To released a film that have been kept for years, because pre-technically believed it won’t work (that’s the reason why it kept collecting dust) and to release it after one of the cast member had been enormously success on being one of the top level of spotlight, its just completely nonsense. It’s like using fame to sell a movie.” Well aren’t it supposed to be like that?” It is supposed to be one of the reasons why people hired best quality actors/actresses. But I hope the quality of a movie doesn’t ONLY rely on who the cast(s) is/are.
But in market world itself a.k.a ShowBiz, as long as it is profitable, who care’s what people think! Oh well at some point, for the casts including Piper Perabo, they now can smile as their hard work putting this film together will eventually come out and be cleaned from the dust.
I don’t really like Paramount Vantage handle their films. Unless they know that H1N1 will be released in 2009 for the right time to release the movie. And limiting the release in certain areas is not the best for the fans, especially Chris Pine’s fans and Horrors Movie’s Fans.
Last but not least, All the best Carriers! Darn it, now I have to watch it by buying the DVD at Amazon. Well hopefully its available in the DVDs stores.
