The Finch Formerly Known As Gold

It's two, two, two films in one

Michele notes that the two biggest box-office phenomena so far in 2004 are The Passion of the Christ and the remake of Dawn of the Dead, and that got her thinking:

These two movies each bring in a different kind of audience. Each movie will make a (relative to the cost of the film) ton of money. Each will have taken a place at number one on the box office charts. And, most importantly, the movies share a common theme: rising from the dead! So I had a blockbuster idea, one that will combine the two disparate, yet large, group of movie goers who are fans of each film. One that will be able to suck the cash out of the pockets of both zombie fans and Jesus followers, bringing them together in a force so large, it will forever change the way blockbuster movies are made.

Here's the poster. I like it, I like it.

And if Mel Gibson likes it, I propose another videosyncrasy: Bring back the Road Warrior and have him plunge off a cliff. Passers-by rush to help, but it's too late. Still, with his dying words, he reveals his most precious secret: the location of a stash of high-tech equipment which, in the right hands, can literally rebuild the world. And the Samaritan wannabes, once united in their goal of saving this man, now turn on each other in an effort to find the equipment first.

They could call it It's a Mad, Mad, Mad, Mad Max.
