Directed by CGI demon Stephen Sommers (The Mummy, Van Helsing, G.I. Joe), and adapted from the Dean Koontz novella, Playlist dumped a ton of insanely boring stills from Odd Thomas, the troubled production starring Anton Yelchin, Addison Timlin, Willem Dafoe, Nico Tortorella, Patton Oswalt and Gugu Mbatha-Raw that’s been struggling to get released in the States. The site has more on the troubles reporting a “a nasty financial dispute between two of the companies behind it.” Click the above link for more – although, I doubt you’ll care after viewing these insanely boring images.
“The story centers on a short-order cook named Odd Thomas (played by Anton Yelchin) who can commune with the dead, a secret only his girlfriend (Addison Timlin) and the local police (Willem Dafoe) chief know. The young man can also spot malevolent forces called bodachs, who feed on pain and portent imminent death. When Odd sees them in spades surrounding a stranger, he finds himself in a race against time to avert a catastrophe.”
