A new trailer has been released for Joel Schmacher's latest film achievement Twelve has been released. I have no desire at all to see this movie. first of all, there is absolutely nothing interesting in the trailer. Second of all, The movie got some pretty negative buzz up at the Sundance Film Festival where it premiered. I don't know if you saw the the first trailer for the film, but it was utterly confusing.
Schumacher has made some great films in his day, but somewhere along the way he lost his touch. Perhaps it was when he took over the Batman franchise. This is the guy that directed films such as The Lost Boys, The Phantom of the Opera, Flatliners, A Time To Kill, Batman Forever, Phone Booth and 8mm.
The film looks like a bad episode of Gossip Girl. It follows a young drug dealer who watches as his high-rolling life is dismantled in the wake of his cousin’s murder, which sees his best friend arrested for the crime. The film stars Chace Crawford, Emma Roberts, 50 Cent, and Zoë Kravitz. Kiefer Sutherland narrates the film.
So here's the trailer, if you end up watching it let us know what ya thought.
Based on the critically acclaimed novel by Nick McDonell, written when he was only 17 years old, Twelve is a chilling chronicle of privileged urban adolescence on the Upper East Side of Manhattan. Set over spring break, the story follows White Mike, a kid with unlimited potential, who has dropped out of his senior year of high school and sells marijuana to his rich, spoiled peers. When his cousin is brutally murdered in an east Harlem project, and his best friend is arrested for the crime, White Mike is hurled on a collision course with his own destiny.
Led by director Joel Schumacher, a talented ensemble cast perfectly captures the obvious pain of children teetering on the brink of adulthood. Schumacher counters their overindulged behavior with operatic staging and a literary voice-over. For every decade, there are moments when youth culture is frozen in “art,” to be reveled in by the generation that lived it and observed by those that didn’t. That is Twelve.
