Poster Parade: "Zoom," "Bug" & "Guardian"

by | June 19, 2006 | Comments

It’s not too often I find myself looking forward to a Tim Allen comedy, but this one’s about superheroes and also stars Courteney Cox, Rip Torn, and … Chevy Chase (!), so consider me mildly curious. You can start creating your own opinion by checking out the just-released poster for the flick. has the exclusive peek at the "Zoom" one-sheet, so go give it a look. "Tim Allen plays Jack, formerly Captain Zoom, an out-of-shape former superhero who has lost his powers. Jack is reluctantly called back into action to turn a ragtag group of kids into a new generation of superheroes and save the world from certain destruction."

OK, after looking more closely at the poster, I get a distinct vibe of "Fantastic Four" meets "Thunderbirds." Hm. Based on the comic book series by Jason Lethcoe, "Zoom" was adapted for the screen by Adam Rifkin ("The Chase") and David Berenbaum ("Elf"). The director is Peter Hewitt ("Garfield"). The release date is August 11th.

Another poster exclusive is going on over at, and this time the flick being promoted is William Friedkin‘s "Bug," which isn’t exactly what it sounds like. "A paranoid, unhinged, war veteran who sees insects everywhere holes up with a lonely woman, who is hiding from her abusive ex-husband in a spooky Oklahoma motel room."

Starring Harry Connick Jr., Lynn Collins, and Ashley Judd, "Bug" is scheduled for a December 1 release date.

Lastly we have Movieweb’s exclusive poster-peekage for "The Guardian," a military drama starring Kevin Costner and Ashton Kutcher. "After losing his crew in a fatal crash, legendary Rescue Swimmer, Ben Randall is sent to teach at A School, an elite training program for Coast Guard Rescue Swimmers. While there, he encounters a young, cocky swim champ, Jake Fischer, who is driven to be the best."

"The Guardian," from director Andrew Davis ("The Fugitive"), is scheduled to hit theaters on September 22nd.
