Below we have the trailer for Powder Blue, a movie that keeps moving around on the release schedule and that, at one time, was going to be released straight-to-DVD. You’ll see why that is, despite a pretty decent cast, when you watch the trailer. As it is, it’s getting a limited run late this month, before a quick turnaround for an early June DVD release.
In fact, I suspect it’ll do decent on DVD, just because of the inordinate number of folks who’d like to see Jessica Biel play a stripper in the privacy of their own homes. The movie follows a group of strangers whose lives somehow intersect (just once, I’d like to see a movie where the strangers’ lives never intersect). In addition to Biel’s stripper, there’s an asthmatic coroner (Eddie Redmayne) and a suicidal widower (Forrest Whitaker). Patrick Swayze plays the owner of the strip club, and somehow Lisa Kudrow, Ray Liota, and Kris Krostofferson are also involved in this mess. It’s written and directed by Timothy Linh Bui, whose previous directing credit is something called, Green Dragon.
Check out the trailer — it’s dominated by Biel’s stripper moves:
