NEWS FLASH: Channing Tatum's 'Battle in Seattle' to Open the 4th Bahamas International Film Festival

Channing Tatum's drama 'Battle in Seattle' will open the 4th Bahamas International Film Festival (BIFF).

The festival will take place December 6 - 13, 2007 and will showcase 83 films from 26 countries, including 54 world or international premieres in dramatic, documentary and short film categories.

Here is the festival description and screening information for the movie:

Battle In Seattle

USA / 2007 / 120 mins

Language: English

Director: Stuart Townsend

Producers: Stuart Townsend, Mary L. Aloe

Screenwriter: Stuart Townsend

Principal Cast: Charlize Theron, Woody Harrelson

Based on one of the most incendiary political uprisings in a generation, Battle in Seattle takes an in-depth look at the five days that rocked the world in 1999 as tens of thousands of demonstrators took to the streets in protest of the World Trade Organization. What began as a peaceful protest intended to stop the WTO talks quickly escalated into a full-scale riot and eventual State of Emergency that squared off peaceful and unarmed protesters against the Seattle Police Department and the National Guard.

For the record, I don't mind taking one for the team and heading down to the Bahamas to screen this movie. I promise I would bring back a full, detailed report (and maybe some cute little drinks with umbrellas in them). I'm just putting that out there... ;-D
