At this point, it’s highly doubtful that a new poster will encourage another 250,000 people to see Looper on its opening weekend — “doubtful,” I said — which makes this, more than anything, another thing to gawk at as you wait for September’s end.

In theaters now, Ivan Reitman‘s new film, Draft Day, does quite a bit with a hard subject. Part of that is the writing, but a lot of the success on screen is due to the amassing of talent Reitman manages and the flash he implants into ordinary scenes.
