Supply + Demand = Movie

Copperhead -- Ron Maxwell's third film on the American Civil War, this one focusing on northern "peace Democrats" instead of on the battlefield as did Gettysburg and Gods and Generals -- hits theater screens on June 28th. But will it hit YOUR local screen?

The supply side is taken care of. There's a finished film, scripted by Bill Kauffman and starring (among others) Billy Campbell, Angus McFadyen and Peter Fonda.

Demand? Well, that's the catch. It looks like a great movie and I wouldn't be surprised to see it on some awards lists, but historical dramas can be a tough sell to local cinemas. They're usually longer than your run-of-the-mill "troubled but sexy and dedicated cop/soldier/spy/bureaucrat catches half the bad guys and kills the other half" clones, which means fewer screenings per day, which means less money, especially if they're not blockbuster hits from the git-go.

Copperhead is a movie you're going to want to see on the big screen ... and you need to let your local theater know you want to see it on the big screen.

Fortunately you can to that very easily -- here, or by clicking on the movie poster in the sidebar.

If you're not sure you want to see it, why not check out the trailer? Here ya go:

Hey there would you mind sharing which blog platform you're working with? I'm looking to start my own blog in
the near future but I'm having a tough time selecting between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and Drupal. The reason I ask is because your design seems different then most blogs and I'm looking for something unique.
P.S My apologies for getting off-topic but
I had to ask!

My coder is trying to convince me to move to .net from
PHP. I have always disliked the idea because of the costs.
But he's tryiong none the less. I've been using Movable-type on a number of
websites for about a year and am worried about
switching to another platform. I have heard great things about blogengine.
net. Is there a way I can import all my wordpress content into it?
Any kind of help would be greatly appreciated!
