Small-town fry cook Odd Thomas (Anton Yelchin) is an ordinary guy with a paranormal secret: he sees dead people, everywhere. When a creepy stranger shows up with an entourage of ghostly bodices – predators who feed on pain and portend mass destruction – Odd knows that his town is in serious trouble. Teaming up with his sweetheart Stormy (Addison Timlin) and the local sheriff (Willem Dafoe), Odd plunges into an epic battle of good versus evil to try to stop a disaster of apocalyptic proportions.
Based on the NY Times #1 best-selling thriller by Dean Koontz, Odd Thomas is a supernatural action thrill-ride from the acclaimed director of The Mummy and G.I. Joe: Rise of the Cobra, Stephen Sommers.
While the movie Odd Thomas cost $27 million to make it is destined for movie box office failure. Why? Primarily because the movie made its bebut on Video On Demand and Apple’s ITunes, before its theatrical release. A big no-no, especially for the biggest movie theater chains, AMC and Regal, which refuse to play any movie that has debuted on Video On Demand or on any other medium before or during its theatrical release.
