Title: New movie for Elijah: "Day Zero"
Post by: Cristiel on March 19, 2006, 01:30:06 pm

I just read in Bunnie's LJ that Elijah has signed up for a film called "Day Zero" and that filming should start soon.

This is the plot summary from IMDb: The military draft is back. Three best friends are drafted and given 30 days to report for duty. In that time they're forced to confront everything they believe about courage, duty, love, friendship and honor. If called to serve, what would you do?

Anyone has more info about it? Sounds pretty interesting...

hehe... you beat me by 4 seconds posting this. i found out about it from aquila0212's journal. ;D she found a little more info from google and the new york daily news.


actress/model named Michelle DiBenedetti. It says about her:

"DiBenedetti's acting career is now showing signs of taking off. On the day that a Daily News reporter and photographer attended her fitting, she snagged a role in an Elijah Wood movie, "Day Zero."

"Day Zero, a feature film starring Elijah Wood, Ginnifer Goodwin, Chris Klein needs a brownstone apt in Brooklyn Heights/Wburg for a one day shoot during the second or third week of March. ..."


i don't know if that is this march meaning right this very moment, or next march. in any case i hope it's true. sounds like an interesting film.

Thanks for the additional info, Deenan!

Apparently, it's another first-time-director movie. No name though. I hope this doesn't mean that we'll never get to see this in the cinema.

Edit: found the director's name: Bryan Dunnar Cole.

IMDB says they're currently filming...

LOL, Cristiel! I know it, 'Lij seems really into the "freelance films" movement right now. I'd like to see him in a blockbuster again- he deserves it.

Will be keeping an eye out for new info! I take it he probably plays one of the three friends...?

Post by: Seven on March 19, 2006, 11:31:48 pm

It sounds completely fascinating, but AGH! Another first-timer, which means that it will probably hover in limbo, a la Try 17 and GSH, and then descend to cable or direct-to-DVD.

Too bad, because it sounds like a really astounding indie film. Maybe we will get REALLY lucky and it will catch a distributor's eye.

Well, there was of course Lord of the Rings and Sin City for blockbuster films.... ;)


Great to hear about a new film, but in my opinion no offense, the genre doesn't seem really interesting to me. It sounds an awful lot like another 'Jarhead' type movie, which I have almost no interest in. There's been so many courage-soldier-war movies around and you just get tired of the ever popular known plot sometimes. Not that I have anything against soldiers or anything.

i don't know blue star, but this sounds more like what these people are going to do IF they were drafted, not in an actual war. i don't know what era this is supposed to be set in...vietnam, korea, WWII, iraq? but if it's set as the latter, i think it would be interesting to see what this would be like seeing the draft is no longer. what would happen if they brought it back, and what would these men think about it?

btw, i read that this movie is only going to be a 4 week shoot.

I like the sound of this film.

I would like to know who the other actors are that play the friends. I just hope it gets enough recognition for a wide release.

Oh, I just found out - Chris Klein is in it - maybe he plays one of the friends. ???

Hmm... Iraq came to my mind too, D. So I had a burst of political wonder about it, but maybe it has nothing to do with that.

Title: Re:New movie for Elijah: "Day Zero"
Post by: doremi77 on March 23, 2006, 12:29:29 pm

Yeah, I agree, a current setting would be most interesting a la "we don't have enough volunteers for this or that war (Iraq?) - let's reintroduce the draft".

If it's set in the past like e.g. Vietnam it does remind me - little as we know of it now - a bit of The Year That Trembled (http://imdb.com/title/tt0288324/).

The plot description for Day Zero is...


Quote:
The military draft is back. Three best friends are drafted and given 30 days to report for duty. In that time they're forced to confront everything they believe about courage, duty, love, friendship and honor. If called to serve, what would you do?


So it isn't a war movie. It's a movie about the draft.

It's about how three people react to being drafted if the draft is started up again now. How they handle the 30 days till they are supposed to report.

I read that too, but it was an indirect thing -- I heard someone say that she read that... you get the idea. ;) I personally haven't heard anything firsthand or reliable yet.

It sounds like it could be fascinating! I wonder if Elijah chose it because of the question of draft reinstatement, and because the film will make people think... one of the best reasons to make a movie. :)

Title: Re:New movie for Elijah: "Day Zero"
Post by: MysteryPerry on April 16, 2006, 11:55:18 am

I agree with that comment. A movie about draft reinstatement is a "message." Especially as there was some talk about whether the draft would have to be reinstated due to what is going on in Iraq. However, I believe that I heard it is not going to be (or won't need to be).

I took a look at the photos of that girl who's in Day Zero with Elijah. (Check out IMDB.com). Not his type. At all.

--Diane

Title: Re:New movie for Elijah: "Day Zero"
Post by: Seven on April 16, 2006, 06:04:26 pm

I heard about it too, and that it probably won't need to be reinstated. And though they wouldn't want me for various reasons ;) I don't like the idea at all!

I think it's great to hear a message about this, about free will, about an individual's right to choose whether to fight or not, and the moral implications of it. This could be DEEEEEEEP.

Title: Re:New movie for Elijah: "Day Zero"
Post by: MysteryPerry on April 16, 2006, 06:10:49 pm

I agree. If well done by the director and the writer, this film could be deep. And it's particularly relevant right now, with the fighting in Iraq showing no sign of slowing down. I dare say that Elijah probably liked the script, since he accepted the part. And it will prove his versatility as an actor once again, coz isn't his next film role after that the one of Iggy Pop?

i sure hope this doesn't become another GSH. ::) this premise is so riveting. i think a lot of people would be interested in seeing what would happen if the draft was reinstated and how young men would react to being summoned to war.

Bernthal was mainly a TV guest actor until recently, when he got a role in that Oliver Stone movie about the World Trade Center.

Dibenedetti hasn't been in anything, really, just a lot of small appearances as characters with no names, like "flasher girl." :)

[color=Blue]Hi girls,
The new Elijah´s look is stunning, and I´m under shock... hahaha!!
But I see why he´s done so, and I think he´s so brave to change his appearance so dramatically.
Good for you Elijah!!!
By the way, I´m "totally" sure the tattoo is fake...(at least, I hope so...).[/color]

[color=Navy]I've been mulling this over, and I wonder... sheer, complete speculation now... could it be that Elijah plays a character who gets drafted... Here's the plot summary from IMDB...

"The military draft is back. Three best friends are drafted and given 30 days to report for duty. In that time they're forced to confront everything they believe about courage, duty, love, friendship and honor. If called to serve, what would you do?"

So... maybe the tat is a kind of protest to the draft in general, by Elijah's character. He didn't dodge the draft, but he signifies his anti-war spirit by having his forcibly shaved head tattoo'd.

Or...

He goes ahead in the 30 days before he has to report and shaves his head, gets the tat, and grows his hair back a bit to surprise the army when they reshave him? Whadya think? ::)[/color]

i'm going on my own assumption that elijah's character is going with the flow. if he's going to be drafted, why not shave his head and get a tattoo? then i'm thinking maybe his character goes off the deep end and gets really radical, causing an uprising about the decision to bring back the draft.

Here's some cast trivia concerning Ginnifer Goodwin, who's in Day Zero, but also happened to be in "Win a Date with Tad Hamilton" with Kate Bosworth - at the time that film was released, Ginnifer made some interesting comments about hanging out with the LOTR cast:

From jan 24, 2004 http://www.mndaily.com/articles/2004/01/22/47931?print

Ginnifer Goodwin, who plays Rosalee's best friend and the most star-obsessed of the film's characters, couldn't be more unlike her character.

"I for a time was running around with the hobbits, and we would be out and about, and little girls would come up and start bawling, hyperventilating. I don't understand that mentality. I've never understood it. It's kind of sad to me," she said. "Maybe thank God for it because it gets people into the seats in the movie theater. But I don't understand having the 'Tad Hamilton' ideals."


And from http://www.filmstew.com/Content/Article.asp?ContentID=7774&Pg=2


No matter what pigmentation her eyes are, Bosworth is a stunning young woman with a face made to be on magazine covers. That face has also brought her the real-life Tad Hamilton of the moment, hot young Lord of the Rings star Orlando Bloom.
So, what's it like going on a date every night with a real hearththrob? "I have to say the most interesting thing in terms of that is you learn how human everybody is," she says, choosing her words carefully. "It's great, but it can be weird. There are Tad Hamiltons for everybody, there always will be, but the thing to keep in mind is that even the biggest actors are human beings, when you get right down to it. Relationships are magical and difficult, anywhere you are."

Goodwin, who speaks with the velocity of an auctioneer after three Red Bulls, understands the difficulties in Bosworth's relationship. "Starstruck is not in my vocabulary. Watching girls bawl, that's something that's sad to me," she exclaims, discussing the adoration women have towards LOTR actors.

"I've hung around with the Hobbits, and I've never seen such chaos,” she continues. “Chaos everywhere you go! Julia Roberts doesn't get nearly the freakouts that these boys get. I've watched girls walk up and say, 'Hi, I'll have sex with you', and I'm just wondering how they can do that."

Goodwin, who plays Bosworth's best friend in Tad Hamilton, describes her real-life friendship with Topher Grace as "Neato!" and calls Bosworth "A freakin' peach. She makes me girlier. I don't think I've ever giggled so much in my life as I did when we were on this set. It was like we were
twelve, we were so synchronized in our girliness."

"Day Zero"

Set in the near future where the state of global terrorism has forced the military to reinstate the draft, Bryan Gunnar Cole's debut feature follows three friends who've received their induction notice and have 30 days to report for duty.

Written by Rob Malkani, the film stars Elijah Wood, Chris Klein and Jon Bernthal as the drafted friends who must battle their political views and thoughts on war before making a decision that will change their lives forever. "The question of service, duty, honor and friendship all comes out," says Cole while taking a break from editing.

Directing stage plays and making documentaries for most of his career, Cole joined the project after producer Anthony Moody optioned Malkani's script last summer and asked Cole to direct. After a few months of reworking the script, they sent it out to agents, and along with catching the eyes of Wood, Klein and Bernthal, also nabbed Ginnifer Goodwin, Elisabeth Moss and Ally Sheedy.

Shot in 25 days on HD around New York City's Lower East Side, Cole brought a loose style to the shoot as he and his longtime DP, Matthew Clark, often shot handheld, encouraging the actors to move freely in the scenes. "There was a lot of freedom for both myself and the actors to do what they do and that's something I promised them at the very beginning," Cole says.

Cole hopes the film's topic sparks as much interesting discussions among audiences as it did on set. "You'd be hanging out and realize that you had completely opposite politics from the person next to you," he says. "So everybody brought their own ideology and that was exciting."

Produced by Moody's Indalo Productions, Malkani is executive producer.

Title: Re:New movie for Elijah: "Day Zero"
Post by: WanderingElf on July 06, 2006, 02:07:38 am

Thanks for that indiewire article, Cristiel. It's interesting that the director previously worked in the theatre - that would mean he's had plenty of experience working with actors (unlike some of the other directors Elijah's worked with recently, Liev being a notable exception) - he's not just some dude who used to make music videos or who is fresh out of film school. I guess that would match up well with what Elijah said at the London con, that Day Zero was one of his most challenging roles.

The subject of this movie reminds me so much of "Tribes" with Jan-Michael Vincent, although I think this new movie ends before boot camp. Does anyone remember Tribes? "And does anyone remember LAUGHTER?..." (ok , I just dated myself there...)
(Check out Vincent's hair on the Tribes poster http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0066490/posters - there's a major head-shaving scene in it...)

BTW, this is OT, but I just saw that Liev Schreiber has just been invited to become an Academy member (A. of Motion Pictures, that is), along with DAKOTA FANNING!! of all people. That got me thinking - anyone know if Elijah is a member? I think you can only join by invitation.

Title: Re:New movie for Elijah: "Day Zero"
Post by: magicdancer on July 06, 2006, 02:22:01 am

Is it possible that the members might be listed at the Academy's website? Just a thought.


Title: Re:New movie for Elijah: "Day Zero"
Post by: WanderingElf on July 06, 2006, 02:35:45 am

I couldn't find a member's directory on the Academy site. They have a "players directory", but it looks like just advertising for jobseekers, and requires a log-in. I searched the site for his name, searched press releases, etc - no mention of membership listings or membership invitation for him. I think there are several thousand members, so maybe the database is too big for them to bother putting it online.
I have nothing against Dakota, but I mean, come on...or did she get a nomination for something? I think if you're nominated for an award, you automatically get a membership invitation. Maybe it's because she worked with Tom Cruise and Spielberg, I guess knowing the right people helps.

Title: Re:New movie for Elijah: "Day Zero"

of all the new young hollywood actors, dakota is the only one i see going far. hopefully keeping her head on straight like elijah has. :)

i found this site that shows and explains about the academy memberships.

http://www.oscars.org/press/pressreleases/2006/06.07.01a.html

also:

"Membership in the Academy is by invitation of the Board of Governors and is limited to those who have achieved distinction in the arts and sciences of motion pictures. Some of the criteria for admittance are: film credits of a caliber which reflect the high standards of the Academy, receipt of an Academy Award nomination, achievement of unique distinction, earning of special merit, or making of an outstanding contribution to film."

There hasn't been any news about a release of "Day Zero" recently so I decided to send an email to a certain someone to ask about it. Apparently, they are currently finalizing the film (recording the score as we speak) and are expecting the final sound mix to be finished end of February.

As of March, it will be shown at festivals and hopefully find a distributor shortly after so we can all enjoy it. Lets keep our fingers crossed.

I'll keep you posted if I find out more.

Gosh, thanks so much, Cristiel, for the info. I was just wondering about it. I'm really looking foward to this particular film.

Yes, so do I. My anon source promised me to keep me informed if the movie will be showed at festivals.

I found this info on Answers.com

2006-present

In 2005, Wood shot a small part in Paris, je t'aime, which consists of eighteen 5-minute sections. Each section is directed by a different director. Wood’s section, called Quartier de la Madeleine, was directed by Vincenzo Natali. The film opened on May 18 at 2006 Cannes Film Festival and was shown at 2006 Toronto International Film Festival. First Look Pictures has acquired the North American rights, and the film is set to open in the US in early 2007.[2]

His most recent films are Emilio Estevez's Bobby, which his character is marrying a girl to change his draft classification.[3] . It premiered at the Venice Film Festival and was released on November 17, 2006 in New York and Los Angeles, wide release followed on November 23, and Happy Feet,[4] which he provided the voice of Mumble, a penguin who can tap dance, but not sing. Happy Feet was released in November 17, 2006.



Wood in his upcoming movie Day Zero
Wood has finished filming Day Zero,[5] a drama about the draft, in which he portrays Aaron Feller. This movie is currently in post-production and will be released in 2007.

Wood also will star with John Hurt in a film adaptation of the novel, The Oxford Murders, in which he will be playing a graduate student, who, along with a professor of logic (Hurt), investigates a series of bizarre, mathematically-based murders in Oxford[6]

His next projects include The Passenger, a biopic about singer Iggy Pop as young man,[7] and he may star in a film adapted from a play written by Steve Martin, called Picasso at the Lapin Agile, in which he will play the role of a young Albert Einstein, but this is unconfirmed.[8] He has finished recording voice work for Tim Burton's upcoming animated feature film version of the short film 9.[9]

Both "Day Zero" and "The Oxford Murders" are scheduled for release on December 14th. But that's a long time away, so the dates may change.

In any event, it looks like Elijah will be very busy doing promo work for two movies at the same time....just as he did for "Everything Is Illuminated" and "Green Street Hooligans."

Looks like another busy year of promotion for Elijah. I sure hope the two films will be released with a least a 3 or 4 week breather.

I wonder if it will be too late for Day Zero to enter the Tribeca Film Festival? Would LOVE to go see it.

I'll see if I can find out through my anon source. I'll let you know if I do. But I was told the movie would only be ready by end February so I have no idea how realistic this is.

thanks cristiel.

i hope it's very realistic. :) the premise of the movie is so intriguing. i just hope when it does come out, many will get to see it, but it looks like one of those indie gems that may get lost in the hollywood shuffle.

I told my Mom about it yesterday... this is kinda how the conversation went.

Me: So... Elijah's new movie is playing at this festival in New York at the end of April.
Mom: Oh, is that so?
<silence>
Mom: What movie?
Me: Um, it's called "Day Zero"
Mom: Day Zero?? What kind of name is that?
Me: Uhmmm... it's about these guys who get drafted into the army. They haven't let our much information yet.
Mom: I see...
<more silence>
Mom: Let me guess, you want to go.
Me: No... no...
<silence>
Me: Yes.
Mom: How much are the tickets?
Me: *mumbles* $60.00...
Mom: What?
Me: $60.00...
<even more silence>
Mom: If you really want to go... you have to raise the money yourself and you can't go if it's rated R.
Me: *screaming inside "YES!!!"* (outside) Ok, thanks.

So does anyone know what it is rated? I couldn't find any info, other than that it is in the "family" section (I think).

Is it true the cheapest the tickets are is $60.00? Can you still buy tickets??[/color]

The Tribeca Film Festival site has the schedule up now. Looks like Day Zero plays four times: http://www.tribecafilmfestival.org/tixSYS/2007/filmguide/title-detail.php?AlphaRange=DD&ShowShorts=&ShowPast=N& (http://www.tribecafilmfestival.org/tixSYS/2007/filmguide/title-detail.php?AlphaRange=DD&ShowShorts=&ShowPast=N&)

Here is a still from the film festival website:

For those of you who wonder about the rating... The movie is currently not rated yet. Ratings are given by the MPAA and it's the distributor who presents it to the MPAA for rating. "Day Zero" has no distributor yet so also no rating.

For those who plan to go to the premiere on April 29, there will be a Q&A session after the film with Elijah, the other actors, writer and director.

i wonder if more stills are coming? it would be nice to see some. :)

i'm willing to be this will be an "R" rated film. i'm sure we'll have that rating as soon as it's picked up.

so cristiel, what questions will you be asking? :D

you don't know of anyone who lives in NYC lith? if you don't mind staying with my weird relatives, you could crash with them.

on second thought, never mind. I don't even like staying with them. ;)

good luck with getting tickets. i thought i read somewhere that the premiere was already sold out, which is weird because the tickets haven't gone on sale yet. maybe i read this info for something else. ::)

I'm positive the premiere is not sold out yet. How could it be? Tickets are only available as of April 7.

Deenan, I agree, it would be nice to see more stills from the film. There are so many of "The Oxford Murders" but close to nothing from "Day Zero".

The theater is on West 23rd Street and Tribeca is "Triangle Below Canal" Street. So Tribeca is a fairly large area....Canal St. to Park Place. I'd say it's 20-25 mins. on the subway from the center of Tribeca to West 23rd Street.

Joanie, please correct me if I'm wrong. I've been gone from NYC for quite a while and my memory has gotten a little hazy.

while searching around this morning, i found this image.

[IMG]http://img148.imageshack.us/img148/2277/untitledir6.png[/IMG]



and a summary of the plot from tribeca's site of this fascinating story.



*may be a bit SPOILERISH!*










It's nighttime in America--the draft has been reinstated. Our conflicting attitudes toward war are examined through the eyes of Aaron (Elijah Wood), George (Chris Klein), and Dixon (Jon Bernthal) as each prepares to report for duty and learns, individually, what it means to "serve with honor."

Bryan Gunnar Cole makes a striking debut with Day Zero, crafting an all-too-believable American future in which the draft has been reinstated to fight the war on terror. With the help of screenwriter Rob Malkani, Cole ably speaks for a generation grappling with the global discord that affects their everyday lives.

The nation's conflicting, and conflicted, attitudes toward war are examined through the eyes of three friends who have been given induction notices and just 30 days to report for duty. Feeling utterly unprepared but convinced that he must serve, novelist Aaron (Elijah Wood) embarks on a panic-stricken quest to prepare for the life of a soldier-enlisting the questionable help of a collapsing Bowflex machine and a hilariously disengaged therapist (Ally Sheedy). Corporate attorney George (Chris Klein) wishes to stay with his wife (Ginnifer Goodwin), a recent cancer survivor, rather than fight in a war that he believes is wrong, but avoiding service does not prove easy. Cabdriver Dixon (Jay Bernthal) is the most fearless and free of doubt, but he falls in love with a sociology student (Elisabeth Moss), and suddenly issues that always seemed black-and-white to him are not so simple.

As reporting day, or day zero, draws nearer, the three friends, who could find mutual friendship only in a city like New York, fight, fall out, come together and comfort each other-as each in his own way discovers what it means to serve with honor. Though set in an imagined world, the film reflects how many young adults deal with war today. With a remarkable cast that handles the material perfectly, Day Zero is as much about the current political climate as it is about the relationships of the characters it follows.

Some info I got from my anon source:

"The Tribeca Film Festival has always screened films outside of Tribeca. they have to - there's only 1 "real" movie theater in tribeca (a nice multiplex in battery park city). they've also used the theater in the jewish heritage museum, and the auditorium at stuyvesant high school (both also in tribeca). but as the festival has grown, and grown in prominence, they've had to continue to push further and further uptown so that every film plays in a real movie theater to ensure great picture and sound. this year there are theaters at least as far north as 34th street, and maybe higher too being used by the festival."

Congrats to everyone who managed to get tickets and good luck to everyone who wants to try to get "door sale" tickets.

Oh and Dee, keep chanting... maybe the trailer gods will hear you ;)

[color=Navy]Door sale tickets are the few that are held to be sold at the door, just before the showing. Don't know why they even bother, but I'm glad they do, as that is the only way I'll get to see it now. :(

Yes, I'm going, committed to it now, with flights and hotel booked. But with no AmEx, and not knowing anyone who has it, I have no ticket yet.

December? What makes you think it'll be released in December? They don't have a distributor yet so at the moment, there is no release. I'm sorry, but that's the way it is. Let's first hope it'll find a distributor soon and then you can start thinking about a release date.

She may have seen December 14 given as the release date at IMDb.com. I remember many of us commented on the date because The Oxford Murders was also listed with the same release date. And yes, we wondered how there could be a release date for either film without a distributor in place.

Hmmm, I just checked IMDb and they no longer show an exact date....just 2007. But at one time it said December 14. There was even an entry about it in elijah_finds and we talked about Elijah doing promo for two films at once...like happened with GSH and EII. But I see IMDb is still showing a December 14 date for The Oxford Murders. I don't see a distribution company listed for TOM yet though.

I see the new poster is up now at IMDb.

Post by: magicdancer on April 14, 2007, 11:30:01 am

WOW! Just WOW! A great trailer. I think this is going to be an amazing movie. And be sure to read the "Cast & Crew" section. This is a very talented group, many of whom were totally unfamiliar to me.

Question: Does anyone know of a way to download/save the trailer? It's really hard to watch with dial-up because it comes in, in jerky bursts. I'd love to be able to watch it straight through....smoothly!

Well I tried my luck today with the Tribeca folk hoping they'd held some tickets back for people calling today but no such luck, they still only have "at door" tickets offered for this movie.

However, I was able to get tickets to Sean Astin's Final Season premiere on the 28th; maybe Elijah will be there and I'll see both of them. I'm assuming Sean will attend the premiere but maybe not.

I'm so sorry, but I'm sure you'll be able to get tickets at the door if you get there really early.

Wonderful! I don't know, of course, but I'd be willing to bet the farm that Sean will be there. I'd love to go, too, but I get to NYC too late on the 28th to go and the next showing of his film is the day I leave. Phooey!

Oh I'll get there early but I'd hate to have to hang around all day as the box office opens only 1 hr before the showing. My brother and I can do a tag-team at the door and maybe the line won't be too long. I'm just not sure how things like this go in NY.

Post by: maryd on April 15, 2007, 12:40:17 pm

Thanks to elijah.netg.se for posting this! Go to dayzerothemovie.com and click trailer. OMG he looks so perfect and vulnerable, I don't even really know what part he's acting and I'm already blown away. Does anyone know if this is cheduled for widespread release and what is the rating (English or American?)

Title: Re:New movie for Elijah: "Day Zero"
Post by: Lith on April 15, 2007, 01:47:29 pm

The film doesn't have a distributor yet, so no release plans other than film festivals at the moment... but that's where, hopefully, it will land a distributor so lots of people can see it. Also, no rating yet.

But i like how they keep it out of the trailer. I don't know if I will be able to handle watching him get his head shaved. Seen point A and point B is one thing, seeing it happen is something else entirely...

well, to a point. you can see he's being shaved, but i love the way they show it. it's...it's.... disturbing. :P

Does Elijah Wood's character kind of go a little nuts? That's the impression I got from the trailer, and I seem to remember Elijah saying something about his character getting really radical or something like that.

Title: Re:New movie for Elijah: "Day Zero"
Post by: Enara on April 18, 2007, 11:31:10 am

[color=Blue]Yes, it seems like he gets quite radical according to the trailer and the pictures we´ve seen of him during the shooting after he shaved his head...
That is why it is interesting to me!![/color]

lol! you're right about that! :D

elijah has said many times he wants to get into darker roles, and i'm glad he's doing it. he's a great protagonist, but an antagonist has more chops IMO.

It's going to require some tricky editing to show the tattoo needle doing it's thing when Elijah isn't actually getting a tattoo.

I think this is going to be a gut wrenching scene to watch. In reality, a tattoo on the scalp would be quite painful. *shivers*

elijah will look real happy if this movie is picked up. i know i will. ;D

according to variety, day zero is on the list of films that will be watched closely by distributors at tribeca.

Title: Re:New movie for Elijah: "Day Zero"
Post by: deenan on April 26, 2007, 07:15:13 am

it stands to be picked up. well, the odds look promising. *crosses fingers*

there will be a lot of distributors at the festival that seem to cater to the smaller budgeted films.

this is also from variety:
http://www.variety.com/article/VR1117963720.html?categoryid=2534&cs=1&nid=2853

if the movie gods are generous to day zero at tribeca, it would still be great to see it play at other festivals. just to a get feel to other crowd reactions. :)

Hopefully Elijah will still be doing his glorious films when I am older (but can any actor really "quit" their job all together if they truly love acting?)

Last night was great, the movie is totally awesome. And yes, I met Elijah at the after party. Talked to him for a bit and had pictures taken. We had a wonderful time. If you get to see the film, you really should. I think it's one of his best films ever, so different from all the others.

We're going to see it again tonight and we will for sure meet him again.

Oh, one last thing: big thanks to Tony for making this happen ( I know you will be reading this!) :-*

Post by: cjhammond on May 01, 2007, 07:33:43 am

Hey there :) I went to the screening of Day Zero last night with some of our wonderfully moderating ladies ;) It was great!

And then, since I was wondering about comments from users on IMDb.com, I went over there after returning to my hotel room, but they didn't have any yet. Plus, not enough people have rated it so far to be "counted"...

So, for those of you who have seen it, please consider rating the movie and maybe even write some nice comments about it. Tony told the audience in the Q&A that they're still looking for a publisher, and having good comments in the IMDb can't hurt, right? :)

Here's the details:

IMDb.com's Day Zero page (http://us.imdb.com/title/tt0768183/)

ah! we have a listener! it's a good interview right? :)

sorry jochen. i lost my head and forgot you were in attendance as well.

it's a great idea for those who have seen the movie to get over to IMDb to post a review. goodness knows IMDb isn't the best of sites, so a little supportive comments would help.

you can also write reviews for day zero at yahoo movies (http://messages.movies.yahoo.com/Movies/Films/forumview?bn=12172484-hv1809426901f0&e=81uYhd_WRcJqo6aYGOFTgyQuog2GN_vWVv7m5v6xqHkL1fUZYEYJs7asTNXo7bYiajZSaCCRz4QNufYoT_H5l8UME3FBr8dFoJtMOx3IgTFmpsLF7w--), or where ever else comments for movies are accepted by the public.

I'm here Deenan! Thank you so much for posting the interview :) It was great ;)

ah! we have a listener! it's a good interview right? :)

sorry jochen. i lost my head and forgot you were in attendance as well.

it's a great idea for those who have seen the movie to get over to IMDb to post a review. goodness knows IMDb isn't the best of sites, so a little supportive comments would help.

you can also write reviews for day zero at yahoo movies (http://messages.movies.yahoo.com/Movies/Films/forumview?bn=12172484-hv1809426901f0&e=81uYhd_WRcJqo6aYGOFTgyQuog2GN_vWVv7m5v6xqHkL1fUZYEYJs7asTNXo7bYiajZSaCCRz4QNufYoT_H5l8UME3FBr8dFoJtMOx3IgTFmpsLF7w--), or where ever else comments for movies are accepted by the public.

ugh all these reports make me really sorry I didn't drag my sorry butt off my couch and head the 2 hours north to NYC....Lith went up but I opted out of the trip, too much going on at work to be spared a whole weekend off....

There is only one thing I know for sure...no matter how many times you meet Elijah...it is never enough....and its always good....thats why I am a proud Elijaholic. Sigh.....

I tried and failed to convince myself that I do not need to meet him again..lol...ah well, perhaps one day it'll happen again.

I'm back home! Unfortunately, we didn't see Elijah at the screening on Monday, he decided not to go at the very last minute.

Anyway, it was a great trip! It was awesome to meet Elijah but also to meet all those wonderful people from A&F :-*

I will write a long report and post pics asap but I really need some rest first, am totally exhausted.

I wanted to post something about my weekend experience at Tribeca DZ Sunday night. I was fortunate enough to meet several A & F members Sunday night outside the venue showing Elijah’s movie; Yeux, Cristel, Nuke33, Frolijah & Lith. Firstly only Lith, my brother and I were the only ones without tickets so we met up with her outside the venue where she’d been hanging around since 4:30-5:00 pm so we waited from approximately 6:00 pm for the 9:30 pm showing.

There were two lines, one for ticket holders and the other for Door Sales, which is for those of us hoping to purchase tickets after the ticket holders are seated. Both lines were long but by around 9:00 pm or so, Lith was able to snag an extra ticket and join the other ladies. However, just before they allowed the ticket holders in, one of the producers came out & handed out 10 FREE MOVIE PASSES in the door sale line, so we were able to go in first for free!

This movie is a dark drama and I thought Elijah was excellent in his role as Aaron. All three lead actors (Elijah, Jon Bernthal & Chris Klein) had great chemistry together; my favorite scene was one where they confessed their deepest/darkest secret to each other. The movie had some controversial parts, particularly one scene in a gay bar, which generated some mildly heated comments at the Q & A afterwards. I don’t how much else to say without giving away spoilers but I thought the entire movie was well done.

This was my first experience seeing EW in person and even though I wasn’t able to speak with him, saw him fairly close up so it was quite exciting. I passed him as I was going into the theater; he was standing 4-5 feet to my left with three women but I was able to see the famous blue eyes and luminous skin; he’s simply a beautiful guy! I couldn’t stop to take a picture because we were being ushered in to take our seats.

All in all it was a wonderful experience and fabulous weekend. (I’d seen Sean Astin’s movie Final Season the night before). I didn’t want to make this too long so am posting more in my LJ this evening. http://romeny.livejournal.com/

Hello dear friends of A+F,
I wasn't here at this place for weeks so much other things going on in my life. More focus on family, reality and my up coming journey to NZ, than to stay and dream a dream which probably never come true. I am still around listening, because I am still infected with the famous Elijah virus.
I am so happy for him to have another good movie out. This must be a movie worth to watch and I hope I get to see it here in Germany as well, if not I guess I will buy the DVD one day.
I am so happy for the friends of A+F who had the chance to be at the premiere and to see Elijah in person. He must be such a beautiful and wonderful person, I can imagine in my mind and heart. I am waiting for your report Cristiel and I am so happy for you.
I had the dream to meet Elijah for so many years and last year at the RingCon in Fulda, Germany I thought that my day had come. I was more than excited but the disappointment was a deep fall, when he canceled his appearance. Well I think this was my chance and it will never come again. Germany is so far away and all the big premieres are hold in USA or UK but not in Germany. I am realistic to see that I won't be able to travel to NY to go to such an event or to LA, even London would be a problem. I don't have my own money just to say I am going to meet Elijah on the LA premiere of his new movie. My husband won't understand this. He let me go to Fulda, right, but that was in our country and didn't overtake our account. Well I have to accept and I shouldn't be sad, because I can follow Elijah and feel close to him with all the reports and pics I find on the Internet and with the imagination in my heart that he is there and that he is such a wonderful person.

Thanks for all your pics and reports, thanks for sharing it with me. Thanks Elijah for simply being here. :D

[color=Navy] *sigh* Finally I have recovered enough to get back online with some measure of regularity, so I wanted to drop by here and say how wonderful it was to see Yeux and Cristiel and Romeny and all the other folk I saw at Day Zero.

The film was wonderful and I agree wholeheartedly with the great reviews I've read so far. My only complaint is that I think they need to go back to editing and add another 5 minutes (or maybe even less) to further develop Elijah's character. His motivation for his final decision of the film was a bit sketchy, imho.

But, that said, I would do just about anything to help get this film a distributor! It's something that America (and the world) really need to see. [/color]

*SPOILERS*

Well, I don't really know. After I saw the movie for the second time and started thinking about the decision Aaron takes, I came to see things in a different perspective. The way I see it now is that he's not suffering from a breakdown at all. I think it's quite the opposite. That he's taking back control over his life. Until that moment, he has failed in everything he did (the book he wrote was plagiarism and he's also not really successful in this "10 things to do before going to war" list) so I think his suicide is a way for him to take control. There are just too many little things that don't fit with the "losing it" idea. It just all makes sense to me and it doesn't feel like there's anything missing anymore.

Just my 5 cents...

Day Zero
in New York
06 May 2007 23:14
Dir: Bryan Gunnar Cole. US. 2007. 90mins.

In Day Zero, three young men confront something that men in the United States have not had to face in more than 30 years, a military draft. Bryan Gunnar Cole's examination of their relationship in the face of what could be death on a Middle Eastern battlefield, a work of fiction, is a rare, albeit oblique, look at how the Iraq War affects the home front.

So far, Day Zero is one of the first narrative films of its kind, and it could have a marketing edge because of its novelty as an imagined view of young American men being drafted. It could also gain attention as a critique of the war's impact. Elijah Wood, who gives the film's best performance as Feller, a sweet-tempered young writer, is the most marketable member of the cast and could attract an existing fan base.

Foreign territories are unlikely to offer much potential. Americans who dread fighting a war of their own creation won't generate much sympathy or interest internationally.

Day Zero looks at three close friends from high school in New York, facing induction in a draft that includes males up to the age of 35. Rifkin (Chris Klein) is a lawyer on the rise in a prestigious firm. Feller has just written his first novel. The dread of being drafted is blocking him on his second, and he tries to overcome that in sessions with a passive-aggressive therapist (Sheedy).

The volatile angry Dixon (Bernthal) drives a cab, and protects the other two, much as he did as the tough guy from a modest background in their high school days.

Rob Malkani's script about male fear and male camaraderie could only be set in a place like New York, where three characters who have 30 days to report for duty don't know anyone in the army, don't know anything about the military, and view the prospect of serving as a death sentence.

The drama in Day Zero comes when the young men start examining their short lives and the testosterone starts flowing.

The tough loner (De Niro-esque) Dixon supports a war of revenge against Islam and lashes out at Rifkin and anyone else who sees serving as career-damaging. In one of the film's lighter moments, Feller (Wood) abandons his new novel for a to-do list, which includes more sex and training in combat gear in a parody of Rambo and Taxi Driver.

Director Bryan Gunnar Cole and cinematographer Matthew Clark use New York locations effectively to map the differences between the affluent lawyer, the struggling cabdriver and the dreamy writer, although Malkani's script is far less realistic in its vague effort to present how a military draft might really work.

The obvious parallel and precedent for Day Zero would be the Vietnam War, when one's draft status was an everyday topic of conversation, and everyone told stories of faking infirmity, homosexuality, or conscientious objection to avoid serving. That war is barely mentioned in this film – a suggestion that today's younger generation sees that earlier war in which almost 60,000 Americans died as ancient history.


Nor are there allusions to Vietnam Era films like Alice's Restaurant (Arthur Penn, 1969) which satirised induction as it adapted the classic song by Arlo Guthrie. It's astonishing that no music from that era is on the soundtrack.

Rather Day Zero tells us much more about its characters than about the War On Terror. In that sense, deliberately or not, it is a twist on the coming of age story, although the three men have moved beyond adolescence.

What it does suggest, to scriptwriter Malkani's credit, is that its characters – and much of America – live in a fool's paradise, in which they're shielded from the sacrifices that war demands. Since there's no support in Congress for reinstating the draft, that's unlikely to change.

Post by: WanderingElf on May 07, 2007, 09:09:01 pm

Thanks for bringing attention to this review, yeux. Great to see yet another critic praising Elijah's performance. I haven't seen the film, but this review has a perceptive comment vis-a-vis the social context, i.e. that these guys (white, mostly affluent & educated) aren't representative of a very wide cross-section of American society.

Quote: "Rob Malkani's script about male fear and male camaraderie could only be set in a place like New York, where three characters who have 30 days to report for duty don't know anyone in the army, don't know anything about the military, and view the prospect of serving as a death sentence."

I really hope this gets decent distribution. It would be interesting to see how it's received by young males in different social circumstances. I noticed the official site has a poll about the draft, and most voters have said they'd refuse to serve. I wonder if that's representative of young Americans in general, or if the respondents are a self-selecting group (e.g. artsy film fans? Female elijah wood fans?) Interesting side-note which might have been mentioned before: Chris Klein's sister is an Air Force Captain.

Does the film address the issue of whether women might be drafted?

Another good quote: "What it does suggest, to scriptwriter Malkani's credit, is that its characters – and much of America – live in a fool's paradise, in which they're shielded from the sacrifices that war demands. " How true.

Here is the link directly to Day Zero at IMDb.com.

http://imdb.com/title/tt0768183/

I wrote a review (I'm magicdancer at IMDb) and gave it a 10/10. Is there a way for people to "rate" the movie without writing a review, Crisitel? The movie now has six reviews and needed five to have IMDb.com post a rating. Maybe I'm not looking in the right place, but I don't see that they have rated it yet. All six reviewers gave it 10/10. ???

Edit: I found the answer to my rating question, Cristiel. ;)

Edit #2: I did an LJ entry asking people to rate the movie and posted the direct link. I'm getting comments from my readers that they can't find any way to rate the film at the IMDb site. Does anyone understand how you do this?

I think you'll have to register first in order to be able to rate movies.

They have all done that, but then said they didn't see a way to rate the movie. Salwood said something about "rolling over the stars" worked for her.

Yep, that's what you do... roll over the stars and then click on the one which is the score you want to give... So if you want to rate it a 10, roll over all of them left to right, then click on the 10th star.

Well, I'm certainly glad it's not just me. I don't see a rating posted for it yet either and I've logged out, used a different member name from the one I used to write a review....everything I can think of. But still no rating shows up.

Is there a way to contact whoever runs IMDb and ask why?

BTW -- In the latest issue of Entertainment Weekly (May 18,) they said at press time not a single movie shown at Tribeca had picked up a distributor (except, naturally, Spiderman 3....which really doesn't count since it came into the festival with a distribution deal already in place.)

I find that really hard to believe!

I've been thinking this for a couple of days now because with all that said they voted, this movie should have at least five votes! There also should be a way to view the total count so we can tell if it's being tabulated correctly.

I too, find it hard to believe that only Spiderman picked up a distributor from Tribeca.

Spiderman 3 already had a distributor...it didn't pick up a distributor at the festival. Actually, I don't understand why it was even included as a festival film. ???


Edit: I found this explanation at IMDb. http://www.imdb.com/ratings_explained

There is a further explanation here. http://imdb.com/help/show_leaf?voteaverage

Maybe I'm a little "slow," but I don't understand this method they're using. :-\

Edit 2: Also found this info on the "ratings pages" IMDb refers to (in the previous link I posted,) but still no rating. Phooey!

Post by: chuckie3d on May 13, 2007, 06:56:20 pm

Thanks Yeux for posting, it looks like imdb has had this question before. Part of the problem is not being able to see the votes being counted. I know I voted at least twice because I wasn’t sure it registered once.

I don't understand their method either; I don’t understand weighted vote averages vs than raw data averages because it sounds like they don’t just look at the numbers. Sigh...

I will. I don't understand how IMDb needs to "weight" our votes because the film was only shown at Tribeca. There are only a small number of people (comparatively) who could have seen the movie.

I'll contact them and post the reply here....if I get a reply.

if they have the option of voting for this movie, then they should be counted regardless of how many have seen it. i hope you find out something from them.

I was already registered at the New York Times website, so I rushed right over there and voted. I copied my IMDb review and figured I'd use it for the Times. However, their limit is 1,500 words and my review was 2,962. :o I'll have to do some serious condensing before I can post it.

Thanks for the heads up, Deenan.

Hey Denan:

I posted my review on the NY Tumes. What a pain that was - not only did the registrtion take forever, but my 3,800 word review from the LIJ Performer site had to be cut to 1,500 words. Good thing I spend my life editing as a Novelist. It take 24 hours to post, so I'll look for it then and link it to the boxie.

oh ed, i thought you saw yeux's post about the word limitation. sorry you had to go through that. i read your review and it's great as always.

so, i wonder what's going on now? any more festivals? i hope so. the more people know about this, the better its chances are of finding distribution. i think this topic is far too important to be brushed off. let's hope after the flurry of summer box office blockbusters, the fall will bring in more intelligent, thought provoking films with day zero among them. :)

Hmmm, yes I wonder. Remember how many festivals showed GSH? Do you know if you can submit a film to a festival, or do they have to invite you to have your film shown? I'd think you could submit a film because there's no way a festival committee could be aware of all the eligible films.

Where did you find that Deenan? I had a look on the website you gave and I only found this list:

BEST DEBUT FEATURE
Bunny Chow [South Africa]
The Devil Dared Me To [New Zealand]
Drink Up! [Spain]
Ex Drummer [Belgium]
Valerie [Germany]

:-\

Am I looking in the wrong place?

More festival news: "Day Zero" is screening on September 23rd as the official closing night film of the American Film Festival In Moscow.

Now, I'm totally confused :-\ I got emails about the movie being nominated, even my boyfriend saw it! He called me to say that "Day Zero" was up against "Ex Drummer", a Belgian film.

How can they nominate it and then un-nominate it, thats not fair! Still, its good to hear about it getting shown around, maybe that'll led to major distribution... ;)

Well, it seems that they did nominate "Day Zero" for Best Debut Feature at first but after they found out that director Bryan Gunnar Cole has made a documentary before, they took it off the list again. So unfair >:(

I know, Deenan! I was mad as well when I heard about it. Documentary and feature films are a totally different thing, it's not right to compare them.

I try to comfort myself with the fact that they liked the movie so much that they thought it deserved a nomination.

Now I'm angry.... >:( You're right, a documentary and a film are nowhere near the same thing and Brian Gunnar Cole deserves credit for trying his hand at something like 'Day Zero'....and anyway, surely the people who nominate these films for awards should have checked first if he'd done anything previously, not afterwards?

don't get me wrong, but i wish there were more american festivals. maybe there are, but nothing has been stated yet. how many more american festivals are left in this year? still, i love that day zero is showing at the other international festivals. it'll be interesting to see how other countries take to a fictional military draft in america.

RE: raindance. i'm still miffed that the nomination was taken away, but it's a little comforting to see it has the editor's choice from rotten tomatoes. :)

Sorry to disappoint you guys but I just got word from Tony Moody to let me know that the date is not correct. But he promised that it won't be long after November... I'm sure he'll let us know as soon as he can.

Wild Kiwi, this is a US release. As far as I know, nothing has been confirmed for Europe yet.

Deenan, no more news if it's a wide or limited release. Hopefully more soon.

The film was a great success there. This just in from the producer and posted with his permission:


"Got back from Moscow yesterday -- what an incredible 5 days. Bryan [Gunnar Cole, director] and I literally barely slept at all. In the midst of it all we had two fantastic screenings of Day Zero. They were well attended with extremely eager/interested Q&A afterwards (including some requests for Elijah's phone number...)

I had no idea what to expect re: the reaction to the film by a Russian audience. But if the festival crowd was any indication, the film definitely plays there, especially among younger (call it age 15-35) people. Interestingly, rather than subtitle, the festival did real-time translation ala the United Nations -- a translator sat in a booth with a written transcript (which we provided) that had been translated ahead of time. And the audience listened through little headsets which were provided for free.

Anyway, an unforgettable time in an incredible city.

I'm back in NYC for a few days, then off to Europe for Barcelona, London, and Lyon...."



Yay! O/ Great news, isn't it? I hope the remaining festivals go this well. There's every reason to expect that they will; the film is awesome.

WOOHOO! that's wonderful news yeux!

it's great to hear the audience ate up the movie, and i know it'll be the same at the next festivals. ages 15-35 would be the target audience no? doesn't matter if they're russian, english, french or american. this subject affects us all.

pretty interesting about the translation too. i wonder if that's ever been done before? again, great news!

ps. maybe mr. moody had a secret conference about distribution? ;)

i feel not only those 15-35 will find this subject intriguing, but also those who were in korea and vietnam. i'm sure they faced the same personal issues that aaron, dixon and george are facing.

you know, there are some films out now dealing with the subject of war. there's an indie with tommy lee jones called "in the valley of elah" where his son goes AWOL, and another indie "rescue dawn" about two men trying to survive in vietnam which made over $100,000 it's first weekend in only 6 theaters. "elah" averaged slightly higher in 9 theaters.

yes, i do my homework. ;)

i'm sure with the right kind of promoting, day zero will definitely see the same results.

The movie will be playing at The Angelika Film Center, 18 West Houston Street (between Broadway and Mercer) in Lower Manhattan for a week. If you live near enough to NYC to go, please do. The higher the attendance figures for the Angelika, the greater the chance the film will be shown in more cities.

The Angelika also has a wonderful cafe/restaurant in the lobby.

Very short report from the Barcelona screening from Anthony Moody:

"Well, all I can say is that if the audience tonight was any indication, Day Zero definitely plays in Spanish. I can't tell you how many people came up to me afterwards and told me how much they enjoyed it, how it made them think, and how unlike most American films it is (which I gather is a complement...) Good stuff."

Tony Moody's report from the first London screening just came in:

"The first london screening was quite small - I think the theater only had 75 seats. It was more of a large private screening room (it was actually in a private club) than a movie theater per se, though the picture and sound were quite nice, as were the seats :) It was perhaps 1/2 full, and Q&A was fairly short, though the few people who came up to me afterwards were extremely complementary. Apparently the screening was primarily for holders of a special type of pass, and they tell us that tonight's screening is the "real" screening at the festival, at a regular, much large movie theater. We'll see I guess!


A couple nice folks from Wales said hello - it was so wonderful of them to make the trip to London for the film. "

Yes, he is.

But the real screening was last night so let's hope the theater was full. I'll post Tony's report on that as soon as it comes in.

"Day Zero" will be shown at another US festival this coming weekend, October 13 or 14.

Since we can't post all the details just yet, we'll give you a hint every day. Keep an eye on this thread ;)

Oh, and can everyone who saw the film, please rate it at imdb? It's really important!

I have another hint for you:

The festival is going to make a surprise announcement at the last moment, but this is something they do each year...

More tomorrow ;)

Title: Re:New movie for Elijah: "Day Zero"
Post by: Cristiel on October 10, 2007, 12:19:38 pm

No one who wants to guess?

Anyway, a new clue then... The festival is in the Southern part of the US...

Title: Re:New movie for Elijah: "Day Zero"

well, it was hard to guess with the info so far. but it being in the south does nothing for my chances of seeing it. :P i guess i can go on with my plans this weekend.

since you mentioned the south, i would guess somewhere in louisiana, florida or georgia??? maybe? i dunno.

Report from Lyon - *CONTAINS SPOILERS*:

"Wow! What an amazing night. The audience was great - perhaps 125 people - and they pretty much all stayed for Q&A. The festival did a great job with the subtitles because near as I can tell everything translated really well as a film going experience for the people there. The first question </SPOILER> erupted into general debate among the audience. My french is pretty poor, but they were quite intent in their discussion. Anyway, it was a great crowd, who all stayed until the theater management kicked us out.

Lyon is a fantastically beautiful city, the festival folks were great, ran a tight ship, and were very fun to hang out with. What a great way to end this portion of the festival tour! Onto Williamstown, MA and Savannah, GA."


Thanks Tony Moody for keeping us up to date 8)

i've already mentioned how great this news is. i was hoping DZ would go over well in france and texas this weekend. thanks tony, and bring on the other festivals!

yeah, i know. it would play great here at our festival, but that's next march. who knows? maybe i won't have to see it at a festival. maybe it'll be at the big theaters here. :D

Nope, unfortunately not. There was nobody from the production present. The organisation just let Tony know that all got well.

I hope we'll get a report from the upcoming fest though.

sorry you feel this way cristiel, but since i haven't seen the movie, and have stayed away from as many spoilers as possible, i didn't get the sense of being spoiled too much. i like this trailer showing more of the film, and the intensity has been brought up to a higher level. i think it'll appeal to more people this way.

Post by: deenan on October 27, 2007, 08:41:19 am

i liked the first trailer, but this one is much better. i realized what it is that i like about it. at the end, the first trailer had music that's upbeat. though, it was a nice added touch, this new trailer's music is more solemn, and the pounding heartbeat is better suited.

i hope a report from the festival on thursday is coming soon. any news yet cristiel?

I have a Williamstown fest report for you from Tony:

"I had an absolutely wonderful time at the Williamstown Film Festival. It's a beautiful New England college town, and the festival was a blast. The screening was very well attended and the moderated Q&A felt like it could've gone on for hours had the moderator not adjourned us to the bar next door! Speaking of the bar next door, I had a great time chatting with some avid A&F/LJ participants. A very fun night overall! Off to Savannah!!"

Title: Re:New movie for Elijah: "Day Zero"
Post by: maryd on October 28, 2007, 06:05:48 am

Sounds like the audience there was really into the film, if they had to be shown to the bar to stop asking questions! And he mentioned A+F! Wish I could have gone....oh well.

Title: Re:New movie for Elijah: "Day Zero"
Post by: deenan on October 28, 2007, 09:05:06 am

i read a report from one of the people tony spoke with that night and they were impressed by the fact that the audience was plentiful. that's very promising seeing that the red socks are playing in the world series.

thanks for the report brenda and tony. it's good to know things went very well in williamstown. now, to rock the socks off of savannah!

ok. so savannah is done and over with. any news from tony about how it went there?

oh and there's some news about the dvd. looks like there won't be any extras on it. :(

DVD (http://www.flp.com/catalogFLHE.aspx?projectid=2ecd3948-c5e2-4726-8e7c-ef05cba9cce6&index=285&productid=e570493a-fe5d-4930-8d97-14a8ed2e98c9)

i'm surprised i can type the way my fingers have been crossed. i sure hope DZ does well in NYC when it's released.

Title: Re:New movie for Elijah: "Day Zero"
Post by: Cristiel on November 05, 2007, 12:19:34 pm

The only thing I know is that it was incredible. A huge theater, a lot of people (around 1000) and great response.

Pity there aren't any extra's on the dvd, I looked forward to seeing some scenes that are not in the movie.

EDIT: I just received a long report from Tony from the Savannah fest and some other exciting news:

WOW was Savannah amazing. The theater was huge, around 1200 seats - and there were easily 1000 people there as only the seats around the edges and in front weren't filled. It was the largest audience we've played to, even bigger than the premiere at Tribeca. It's amazing how jokes are funnier, and tension is tenser, when shared with so many.

At least a few hundred stayed for Q&A with Bryan and me, and the crowd seemed to really like the film (there were people from several other southern festivals there, and we've received 3 further invitations which we're pondering - however, since they take place after our release, it's doubtful we'll be able to go). The Savannah Film Festival is sponsored by SCAD, the Savannah College of Art and Design, and they have an excellent film program there, so there were many students in attendance which made for an extremely interested audience.

Some more good news: in addition to NYC, Day Zero will also be released in the Seattle area, on Bainbridge Island at the Linwood Theater, also on January 18. First Look decided to open on 2 screens rather than 1, and rather than do LA for the west coast, we chose Seattle because that's where director Bryan Gunnar Cole is from. He'll be at the theater there for Q&A during opening weekend and perhaps all week.

On another note, the film is now available for pre-order on Amazon, BestBuy, and just about all the other usual web/store retailers who sell DVDs. Exciting!

Finally, the NYT included Day Zero in its piece on upcoming movies...

Title: Re:New movie for Elijah: "Day Zero"
Post by: deenan on November 05, 2007, 06:58:30 pm

thanks brenda and tony. :)

even though i've liked the feedback from all the festivals, this one and tribeca have been my favorites. it's good to know the theater was full and the audience was into the movie.

was there a reason given why first look decided to open in seattle too? i hope they're reconsidering (not that they doubted) how powerful this film really is and the responses from the festivals have been positive. though it's not probable to happen, it's wonderful to know DZ has requests to show at other festivals. :D

i'm going to pre order my copy of the dvd this week, but i still hope to see it in a real theater.

Here are the links to the theaters where Day Zero will be released on January 18:

New York: http://www.angelikafilmcenter.com/angelika_comingSoon.asp?hID=1&page=COMING%20SOON
Washington: http://www.lynwoodtheatre.com/upcoming.html

If you want to go see the movie in NY, you can purchase tickets in advance through the theater site.

It is really important that there will be a lot of people so if you live near NY or Washington or you have friends or family living there, please ask them to go and see the film.

Title: Re:New movie for Elijah: "Day Zero"
Post by: Cristiel on January 06, 2008, 01:35:28 pm

Huh??? There has never even been a mention of a release in the UK. It's only released in NY and Washington and that is even a very limited release, only one theater in both cities. Of course, when a lot of people show up, it might be released in more cities. But I don't think you have to hope for a UK release.

It's coming out on dvd at the end of February. But it's only region 1 for now, so you'll need a region free dvd player to be able to play it.

did the times see a different version of the movie? aaron is trying to complete his second novel, not first, and as far as i know, he's the only one to shave his head and get a tattoo. :P

i really wish i could be in the theater in NYC, but i can't. i have a lot of family there, so i'm going to email them to say go see this movie.

if you have family there too, why not do the same? heck, i may even buy a ticket just to get more butts in the seats, even if it's a imaginary one. ;)

Believe me, Deenan. If NY wasn't this far away, I'd be there too. But I like your suggestion to buy tickets just to support them. I might do that.

I'm waiting very impatiently to get my tickets for Friday. Definitely planning on seeing it twice that day, and probably once on Saturday. Overlithe will be with me as well. We're doing all we can to see that Day Zero's NYC run is successful.

well lith, as soon as you see it... twice, ;) please come back and give us some news. i've seen a lot of mixed reviews of the movie. but that won't stop me from seeing it. i never take "critics" opinions. i'm the only judge of what i like and don't like.

for example, i saw lots of glowing reviews for a movie that has two of my favorite actors in it, so i bought it before i even saw it. boy! was i disappointed! that's the first movie i exchanged because i didn't like it, and i wanted so much to like it. :P

i've told my family in NYC about it and come tomorrow, i'll be buying some tickets. ;)

the estimate figures are in from this weekend and they're better than i expected. it made about $13,000. not too shabby for only 2 theaters and minimal promotions. let's hope it continues to do well. :)

Nope, not shabby at all; it's unfortunate they wasn't a wider release for it. I discussed it with my children and this is something they would have gone to the theater to see. We'll all watch it when my DVD arrives.

if those numbers hold up, it would place DZ at number 4 as far as money to theater ratio. for only two screens it made over $6,300 per screen, and if it would have been on twice as many, (4) it could have topped out as number one!

i sure hope this means more theaters will show it now.

I watched this movie with my hubby this weekend and he enjoyed it and said it was a really important movie, that it was too bad more people hadn't heard of it. Said that oldsters that could remember the Vietnam days and young adults who think the draft might be re-instated should see it.

He enjoyed Elijah's role as well and chuckled in the right places.

I've just seen Day Zero - literally, about 5 minutes ago - and it was one of the best films I think I've ever seen. The acting was all amazing - Elijah really stood out, I honestly think this is one of his best moments, and that's saying something. The ending was heartbreaking. :'(

it is good isn't it? :)

i thought it was a good movie on the first few viewings. i didn't watch it for a long time, but when i watched it again, it was just more profound for me. elijah is probably one of the best visual actors in the business.

It is, deeply profound. Even though Aaron's lines are meant to be comedic, there's something very dark behind them.

Agreed on Elijah being one of the best in the business - his eyes always tell such a story.
