On this weeks Film Roundup - The horror classic A Nightmare On Elm Street gets a fresh new remake - without Robert Englund - Yeah you heard me! We give you an exclusive look at the hottest up coming Action film - Takers. Quirky comedy isn't just for you or me, its also apparently for no one at all in new comedy Nobody! Find out the meaning of life in spiritual documentary Oh My God. And hey, whilst were at it screw air guitar man! It's all about air DRUMMING in this weeks 405 Pick Of The Day - Adventures of Power. Check It Out! 1. A Nightmare On Elm Street Released: April 30th, 2010 Directed by: Samuel Bayer Cast: Jackie Earle Haley, Kyle Gallner, Katie Cassidy, Rooney Mara, Thomas Dekker, Kellan Lutz, Clancy Brown Genre: Horror Trailer: Click Here Freddy Krueger returns in âA Nightmare on Elm Street,â a contemporary reimagining of the horror classic. A group of suburban teenagers share one common bond: they are all being stalked by Freddy Krueger, a horribly disfigured killer who hunts them in their dreams. As long as they stay awake, they can protect on anotherâ¦but when they sleep, there is no escape. 2. Takers Released: Coming Soon Directed by: John Luessenhop Cast: Matt Dillon, Paul Walker, Idris Elba, Jay Hernandez, Tip âT.I.â Harris, Michael Ealy, Chris Brown Genre: Action & Adventure Trailer: Click Here Takers, directed by John Luessenhop, revolves around a notorious group of criminals (Idris Elba, Paul Walker, T.I., Chris Brown, Hayden Christensen and Michael Ealy) who continue to baffle police by pulling off perfectly executed bank robberies. They are in and out like clockwork, leaving no evidence behind and laying low in between heists. But when they attempt to pull off one last job with more money at stake than ever before, the crew may find their plans interrupted by a hardened detective (Matt Dillon) who is hell-bent on solving the case. 3. Nobody Released: October 2nd, 2009 Directed by: Rob Perez Cast: Sam Rosen, Mark Margolis, Bonnie Somerville, Beth Riesgraf Genre: Comedy Trailer:Click Here Lindeman, a sculptor in his last semester of art school, is stuck. His final project â a two ton block of granite â stands front and center in his studio, an ominous reminder of the daunting task ahead. To begin working Lindeman needs to be inspired but the problem is: where do you look for inspiration? Lindeman tries the Goth scene, the gay scene, the vegan revolution scene. He tries falling in love, becoming one with mother nature, and passing himself off as an intellectual. He tries everything he can think of but, in the end, he might just realize he doesnÊ¼t need to be somebody to be someone. Flying under the radar - being nobody - has its perks. 4.Oh My God Released: November 13th,2009 Directed by: Peter Rodger Cast: David Copperfield, Hugh Jackman, Sir Bob Geldof, Ringo Starr, Jack Thompson, Seal Genre:Documentary Trailer:Click Here In every corner of the world, thereâs one question that can never be definitively answered, yet stirs up equal parts passion, curiosity, self-reflection and often wild imagination: âWhat is God?â Filmmaker Peter Rodger explores this profound, age-old query in the provocative non-fiction feature âOh My God.â This visual odyssey travels the globe with a revealing lens examining the idea of God through the minds and eyes of various religions and cultures, everyday people, spiritual leaders and celebrities. His goal: to give the viewer the personal, visceral experience of some kind of reasonable, meaningful definition of one of the most usedâsome might say overusedâwords in most every language. Rodgerâs quest takes him from the United States to Africa, from the Middle East to the Far East, where such fundamental issues as: âDid God create man or did man create God?, âIs there one God for all religions?â and âIf God exists, why does he allow so much suffering?â are explored in candid discussions with the various Christians, Catholics, Muslims, Jews, Hindus, Buddhists and even atheists the filmmaker meets along the way. But maybe itâs former Beatle Ringo Starr who sums it up best here when he simply says, âGod is love.â Rodger would like viewers to come away with a feeling of having an amazing journey - seeing places they would never see normally, hearing music that inspires and words that educate, bringing understanding and tolerance of other individuals that in turn richens their own existence. âOh My Godâ stars Hugh Jackman, Seal, Ringo Starr, Sir Bob Geldof, Princess Michael of Kent, David Copperfield and Jack Thompson. 5. Adventures Of Power *The405 Pick of the Day* Released: October 9th, 2009 Directed by: Ari Gold Cast: Ari Gold, Michael McKean, Jane Lynch, Chiu Chi Ling, Shoshannah Stern, Adrian Grenier Genre: Comedy Trailer:Click Here When hard times hit a small mining town, Power (writer-director Gold) doesnât wish for riches; he only wishes that heâd learned to play drums. But his father (McKean) could never afford to buy him a drum set, so Power has embraced the next best thing: air drumming. Tired of the constant ridicule, and with nothing but a few dollars, some breakfast cereal, and the support of his Aunt Joanie (Lynch), Power sets off across the country to the âparadiseâ of Newark, where an underground air drumming crew has invited him to join their team. But as the big air drumming competition looms, so does a rivalâmulti-millionaire drummer Dallas H. (Grenier), who thinks air drumming is an abomination and seeks to destroy Power and his crew. More than just a rockânâroll comedy, ADVENTURES OF POWER is an epic fable about the American Dreamâabout making something out of nothing, and trusting in your own heartbeat as a way of changing the world. With a phenomenal soundtrack featuring original songs alongside hits by Rush, Phil Collins, the Dazz Band, and more, ADVENTURES OF POWER will have you drumming in your seat and cheering on your feet.
