Holy carp, can’t wait to see this movie: Red Lights, starring Robert De Niro, Sigourney Weaver and Cillian Murphy. A thriller based on skeptical investigators pursuing a famous psychic…think it might be up my alley?
Seems to be a few nods to real-life events/phenomena in there, such as James Randi exposing Peter Popoff’s use of an in-ear radio receiver to gain information about audience members (the actor even looks similar to Popoff). Director Rodrigo Cortes has some good observations about the skeptic-believer divide in this interview, so I’ll be interested to see how it plays out on the screen. Great trailer, hopefully the movie is just as good.
