Want A Preview Of JUMPER With Doug Liman, Hayden Christensen And Some Big Brains At MIT!?

Hey, everyone. ”Moriarty” here.
I’ve seen some people who seem to have a real hate-on for this film already, but I dig everything I’ve seen. I think there are some really inventive, unusual ideas on display in all the trailers, stuff we’ve really never seen in an action film. It looks BIG, too, which I like. I’m eager to see it sooner rather than later, and I wish I was going to be at this MIT screening, where they'll be showing chunks of the film and then talking about the science behind it. Still, there’s an opportunity if you’re in the area for you to go, and here’s hoping some of you take advantage of that and write us to tell us how the clips and how the evening goes.
Check out the details below:
This is a great opportunity for Bostonians interested in a sneak preview AND meet both the director and the lead actor. If you use this info, please call me zykorex.
MIT LSC presents a free sneak preview of the film JUMPER
(work-in-progress) next week Wednesday, 16 Jan, in 26-100 at 8:00pm.
In the science fiction-action-thriller _Jumper_, a genetic anomaly allows a young man to teleport himself anywhere. He
discovers this gift has existed for centuries and finds himself in a war that has been raging for thousands of years between "Jumpers" and those who have sworn to kill them.
The screening will be followed by a discussion panel about the film and the physics of teleportation featuring lead actor HAYDEN CHRISTENSEN, director DOUG LIMAN, and MIT Physics Professors MAX TEGMARK and EDWARD FARHI.
LSC members (including permpass members) may reserve tickets (for yourself and a guest) by e-mailing me; please try to do it by Tuesday the 15th, but I'll probably accept them afterwards.
Doors will open at 7pm. Permpass members, Execomm members, and LSC members working the sneak may reserve seats in advance of opening (email your director if you're interested in working the sneak!).
This is a FREE Sneak Preview, with preferred admission for members of the MIT Community with an MIT ID or brass rat. Tickets will be distributed in Lobby 16 at 6pm on January 16.
