For anyone who enjoyed Syriana, Good Night and Good Luck, North Country, or Murderball, Participant Productions has just announced the release schedule for their newest film, An Inconvenient Truth, the Al Gore documentary on global warming. (See the trailer here).
Because a film's opening weekend almost singlehandedly dictates how long it stays in theaters, Participant is encouraging people to pledge to take friends and family members to it on their website. The film opens in NY and LA on May 24 and many more cities the following week. Check here for listings to find out when it opens in your town. (Most are June 2, 9, or 16).
If anyone wants to go see it with me on June 2, I'll be hitting it at the SF Embarcadero that weekend.

And Gore was pretty good on SNL tonight.
Here's the upcoming.org listing for the Berkeley opening, also 6/2:
P.S. The Zellerbach talk was cancelled (labor issues), but there was a free showing of the movie instead. Anyone catch it?
I went to the free screening. Luckily, I got there really early because they turned a few hundred people away.
It was even better than I thought it would be. Definately see it opening weekend.
There is a flickr group I'll be posting some photos in
Just got this in the Landmark Cinemas email:

Crap. Looks like I can't go Friday, but may go Saturday day. Email me if you wanna meet up for it, but either way, we should all go!
