ABOUT THE MOVIE
Academy Award®–nominated director/writer Peter Hedges (“Dan in Real Life,” What’s Eating Gilbert Grape”) brings enchantment to the screen with “The Odd Life of Timothy Green.” It’s the inspiring, magical story of a happily married couple, Cindy and Jim Green (Jennifer Garner and Joel Edgerton), who can’t wait to start a family but can only dream about what their child would be like. When young Timothy (CJ Adams) shows up on their doorstep one stormy night, Cindy and Jim—and their small town of Stanleyville—learn that sometimes the unexpected can bring some of life’s greatest gifts.
Disney presents “The Odd Life of Timothy Green,” with Ahmet Zappa, Scott Sanders and Jim Whitaker producing, story by Ahmet Zappa and screenplay by Peter Hedges. “The Odd Life of Timothy Green” is slated for release on August 15, 2012.

'THE POSSESSION" Trailer and Photos! (video)

I'm pretty excited for this one people. It’s based on a TRUE STORY! Its stars my dude Jeffrey Dean Morgan…probably know him from THE WATCHMEN…personally for me…SUPERNATURAL…he played Dean and Sam’s dad in the TV series. THE POSSESSION looks pretty interesting and twisted…a little girl buys a box from a garage sale - - - opens it and all hell breaks loose. I just hope the PG-13 rating doesn't hurt the film…I hate that crap. I guess I’ll just have to wait and see.
