I received the latest newsletter email from the Darwin Awards today. It opened with the following tidbit:
THE DARWIN AWARDS: Movie Debuts on DVD July 31, 2007 !!!
All-Star Cast includes Winona Ryder and Joseph Fiennes,
plus cameos from David Arquette, Julianna Margulies,
Wilmer Valdarrama, Lukas Haas, Chris Penn, & more!
Ryder and Fiennes star as an insurance claims investigator and
a forensic detective, respectively, who team up to examine cases
of potential Darwin Award candidates. Featuring re-enactments
of some of the most beloved Darwin Awards and Urban Legends,
this is a comedy about the extremes few humans dare to achieve.
Detective Michael Burrows (Fiennes) is obsessed with Darwin Awards,
presented to people who accidentally kill themselves in incredibly
foolhardy ways. So when he’s fired for bungling an arrest, he
offers his profiling services to a life insurance company. Now,
with the help of a tough claims investigator (Ryder) he’s determined
to learn how to identify these idiots… before they die!
Directed by Finn Taylor.
The Darwin Awards DVD available soon, $19.98 U.S. / $25.98 Canada.
Excited about the movie? Email Wendy, Finn Taylor, and the Stars!
Just thought I’d share for anyone who might be interested but doesn’t get the DA newsletter.
