Bobby - Due 4/10/07

Emilio Estevez's Bobby is due on April 10th from The Weinstein Co.

No specs yet, but we have cover art.

This, Marie Antoinette, and Children of Men were easily my favorite films of the year and I'll definately be picking this up on release day!

Going from one of the best theatrical one-sheets in years to that...

Unbelievable...I must agree! How come all the time there is someone with a gift for destroying poster art that gets hired??

Very strong film!!

I can understand them cutting down on all the actor names listed on the poster (Joshua Jackson, Ashton Kutcher, Nick Cannon, Emilio Estevez since he's also the director, etc.), but why take out Martin Sheen, Harry Belafonte or Christian Slater?

I wanted to see this theatrically but it got lost in the holiday shuffle for me. I do agree about the terrible DVD art. They really should have just kept the poster art which, while it lacked faces, was much better.

The DVD cover art is probably for all the weekend warriors at Best Buy, Wal-Mart, and Blockbuster who will pick this up on name-recognition (because the movie caught their attention by having an actor/actress they like on the cover)....

Aren't most of the big names on the cover mainly one or two scene cameos, not not really big parts? ( I know the movie was serverly critizized for this very reason)

blame the Weinstein company, they have an exlusive rental deal (other places can rent them, they just have to buy them)

what an odd choice of films to market through blockbuster....a political film that will have zero appeal to the carbon blobs who populate their aisles.

I rented this from Blockbuster in widescreen and I didn't like it at all. I am a political liberal for the most part and I was expecting a movie about Bobby Kennedy. Unfortunately, the movie is about people at the party where he got shot. The star-power is seriously wasted in this film, in my opinion.
