Jimmy’s Movie Preview and CONTEST: Copperhead

I got an email last week asking if I would cover another book-to-film adaption, in exchange for a book and a poster.  I did a similar thing for Life of Pi.  Before committing to it, I looked into the film, and once again, I’d be interested in seeing it, so I have no problem previewing it.

This time, the movie is a Civil War film called Copperhead.  Based on the novella “The Copperhead” by Harold Frederic and actual events during the Civil War, the film is about a man who lives in the Union and hates war just as much as he hates slavery.  Here is the official synopsis:

Inspired by actual events and based on the extraordinary novel by Harold Frederic, which the great American critic Edmund Wilson praised as a brave and singular book that “differs fundamentally from any other Civil War work,” Copperhead is the story of Abner Beech, a righteous farmer of Upstate New York, who defies his neighbors and his government in the contentious autumn of 1862. Abner despises slavery – but just as passionately opposes the war that is waging in the name of “union” hundreds of miles away because he believes the Constitution of the United States is being trampled. Abner is neither a Yankee nor a Rebel. He is what is known as a Copperhead.

The film is directed by the same guy who directed Gods and Generals and Gettysburg, Ron Maxwell, so the film is poised to be a great wartime film.

Copperhead is limited availability, so if you really want to see it, make sure to click the link to demand it come to your city.

Here are some links to the website, the trailer, and a countdown to when the film comes out:

CONTEST 

Finally, since this is a sponsored post, you have a chance to win the book, a movie poster and some movie cash.  Just comment on this post with your favorite film that features war or combat.  The winner will be picked by random from commenters and will be contacted for their name and address.  The contest ends on June 20 and the winner will need to give me their information by June 23 at 11:59pm.

Note: the countdown above is for the movie, not the giveaway.  The giveaway ends on June 20.

Good luck!

Sherlock 2 Trailer

Coming in December is the sequel to a highly entertaining 2009 film. Sherlock Holmes: Game of Shadows has a new long trailer out and it looks good. Also, I noticed was that Rachel McAdams will appear in this film as Irene Adler, though it doesn’t look as she’ll have as major of a role is as in the first film.

I heard about this stuff from Mashable.com and I love it. It is creative, well thought out, and beautifully made. Interactive movies are going to be one of the next best really cool things online. Chad, Matt & Rob are entertaining and do a great job. Watch and play The Treasure Hunt here:
