It's all about want in this trailer for Twelve from Joel Schumacher

06.24.2010

If your first encounter with TWELVE was the poster, you may become automatically disinterested. There's that Chance Crawford guy who just got busted for marijuana possession, 50 Cent (or Curtis Jackson), and Emma Roberts all just staring with what would seem to be massive amounts of concern. On top of all this, you learn that Joel Schumacher helmed the film.

Are you still with me?

If so, we've got a trailer as well as the poster for the film. It's probably obvious by now that I'm not digging the poster. I've seen the layout a million times. When I watched the trailer, the first 30-40 seconds made me think that this was a sequel to THE IN-CROWD or some lifetime movie that dares to be edgy. However, the remainder of the video didn't seem all...so...bad. The film actually did fairly well at Sundance, so maybe that stoned kid can deliver after all. At least Rory Culkin is in there and Kiefer Sutherland narrates.

Synopsis:

"Based on the critically acclaimed novel by Nick McDonell, written when he was only 17 years old, Twelve is a chilling chronicle of privileged urban adolescence on the Upper East Side of Manhattan. Set over spring break, the story follows White Mike, a kid with unlimited potential, who has dropped out of his senior year of high school and sells marijuana to his rich, spoiled peers. When his cousin is brutally murdered in an east Harlem project, and his best friend is arrested for the crime, White Mike is hurled on a collision course with his own destiny."

Extra Tidbit: Schumacher said this back in 1997, "Val [Kilmer] did me two great favors. When I wanted him to be Batman, he said yes. Then he created a situation which allowed me not to have him play Batman again. They were both happy, happy instances, for which I will always be grateful."

That look pretty interesting. I like the DV look, and hope the murder plays a large part.

I'm torn... Joel Schumacher rocks out on thrillers but it has some Calvin Klein looking model-guy and the abhorrent 50-cent in it. Hmmm....

Over the top teen drug fantasy movie wasting Rory Culkin's talent, confirming 50 Cent isn't meant to be an actor or rapper even more.

Schumacher hasn't made a good film since Phone Booth. Before that Tigerland & Falling Down were his best efforts. This just looks like more Number 23 bullshit.

Oh and the trailer cut off. I can't imagine it got much better.

Maybe it was just my computer but im pretty sure that is not the full trailer you have posted up there. I have seen this same trailer but it keeps going from where you're video ends.

Why does Schumacher get such a bad wrap? Is it SOLELY because of the Batman flicks?? Those 2 movies undo the fact that this dude also directed the fucking AMAZING A Time To Kill and Falling Down and Phone Booth??

With Batman, I know what he was going for, it just happened to not work! He wanted a more comic booky feel, it just, after Tim Burtons vision, his just did not work!

but the dude can direct, he has made some amazing flicks some mediocre flicks (Number 23) and some real bad flicks

God, Schumacher is just such a warning flag nowadays. But Culkin and Roberts may just warrant a viewing, for me at least.

"The film actually did fairly well at Sundance,..."

Are you talking about the same movie than everyone else? The only thing I've read out of Sundance about "Twelve" was that it was the worst movie there. And at best it was hilarious - not because it was trying to be funny but it was so bad that the critics broke out in laughs during the press screening.
