Aeon Flux Not Screening for Critics

by |

Following the assertion that Charlize Theron only took the lead in "Aeon Flux" for the money comes this bit of news: Paramount won't screen the flick for the press.

In what is always a very bad sign, Paramount has decided not to screen
"Aeon Flux" in advance for critics. This is usually a sign that the film will be an absolute stinker, and that they are trying to make a quick buck opening weekend before being savaged by the press.

This info comes from Gareth at Skewed & Reviewed, and can be confirmed by film critics across the country.

Starring Charlize Theron, Marton Csokas, and Jonny Lee Miller, "Aeon Flux" has been delayed a few times, but will finally open this Friday with nothing in the way of new release competition. And despite the lack of press screenings, I know at least one movie critic who's still holding out hope that "AF" is a mindlessly entertaining action flick: me.
