Thanks to Channing Tatum's upcoming film 'Battle in Seattle', a movie about the famous anti-WTO protests, we now have the exclusive stills you see on this post and that feature Channing on the set of the film. They have also promised me that there is more where that came from, so stay tuned.
I was lucky enough to see this awesome film at its US premiere last March at the South by Southwest Film Festival where it had one of its many successful screenings.
We've been waiting a really long time for this film to hit a broader audience, so I'm extremely glad that more fans are finally going to get an opportunity to see it. This Friday, September 19, 2008, 'Battle in Seattle' will have a limited release in US theaters across the country.
There's a lot going on to get the word out about the film, and the movie is doing an incredible job of keeping fans up-to-date on events and news for film release through their official website. Last night, The Washington Note and the New America Foundation hosted a film screening of 'Battle in Seattle'.
To help keep you all updated on past and future events, BIS wanted me to share the info below with you so fans can participate when possible...
