Join the Washington DC Sunday Night Film Club this Sunday, Feb 17th at 7:30 pm for Jumper at the AMC Loews Uptown 1 . Look for Brian wearing an air of righteousness in the theatre lobby about 15 minutes before the film. As always, after the film we will descend on a local establishment for dinner/drinks/discussion.
Following up his blockbuster action hit Mr. and Mrs. Smith, director Doug Liman turns to an entirely new genre — sci-fi — for this tale of an underground world of teleporters. Based on the novel by Steven Gould, Jumper concerns David (Hayden Christensen), a young man who quite literally wills himself away from his grim family life. Once in control of his newfound ability, he finds he’s able to use it for great personal gain. But he soon discovers that he is not alone, and all is not well in the world of jumpers. ~ Michael Hastings, All Movie Guide
