The film is a morality tale set in the near future, when artificial organs can be bought on credit, with the understanding that defaulting on payment will result in a fatal repossession.
Remy (Jude Law) and Jake (Forest Whitaker) are best friends and The Union's most dangerous repossession men, reclaiming top-dollar organs when recipients fall behind on their payments. But after an on-the-job accident forces Remy to be outfitted with a top-of-the-line heart replacement, he finds himself in-debt and on-the-run. Now, the hunter becomes the hunted as Jake will stop at nothing to track him down to finish the job.
Deleted scenes with optional commentary with Director Miguel Sapochnik and Writers Eric Garcia and Garrett Lerner.Read More
Jude Law plays Remy, one of the best organ repo men in the business. But when he suffers a cardiac failure on the job, he awakens to find himself fitted with the company's top-of-the-line heart-replacement...as well as a hefty debt. But a side effect of the procedure is that his heart's no longer in the job. When he can't make the payments, The Union sends its toughest enforcer, Remy's former partner Jake (Academy Award® winner Forest Whitaker), to track him down. Now that the hunter has become the hunted, Remy joins Beth (Alice Braga), another debtor who teaches him how to vanish from the system. And as he and Jake embark on a chase across a landscape populated by maniacal friends and foes, one man will become a reluctant champion for thousands on the run. Directed by Miguel Sapochnik and starring Jude Law, Forest Whitaker, Liev Schreiber, RZA, Alice Braga, and Carice van Houten, Repo Men opens March 19th, 2010.
Repo Men was released March 19th, 2010.Read More
It was another successful tea party at the box office for Tim Burton's latest film. Alice in Wonderland took the box office crown for the second weekend in a row, taking in an estimated $62 million in its second weekend in theaters. The film, which stars Johnny Depp, Mia Wasikowska, Michael Sheen, Helena Bonham Carter, Anne Hathaway, Alan Rickman, Christopher Lee, Stephen Fry, Timothy Sprall and Crispin Glover, only dropped an impressive 46.6% in its second weekend, and has a cumulative domestic total of $208 million, already profiting from its massive $200 million production budget after just 10 days. The film also took in a monstrous $16,631 per-screen average, playing in 3,728 theaters.
The weekend brought four new films to theaters, and although none of them really came close to Tim Burton's new film, Paul Greengrass' new film Green Zone came the closest, taking second place with an estimated $14.5 million. The Matt Damon film took in a solid $4,820 per-screen average from 3,003 theaters, but it seems this film will have a hard time earning back its $100 million budget. The new Jay Baruchel comedy She's Out of My League came in third place with an estimated $9.6 million, with just a $3,248 per-screen average from 2,956 theaters and Robert Pattinson's new film Remember Me came in fourth place with $8.3 million. The last new release, Our Family Wedding, came in fifth place with an estimated $7.6 million, right behind holdover Shutter Island, which took fourth place with $8.1 million. The Martin Scorsese film now stands at $108 million after four weeks in release.Read More
