We went to see The Golden Compass, a movie which has been discussed already, and this is the first time I’ve seen the posters in person. (Don’t know if there was a trailer playing at this particular cinemaplexoid but there certainly wasn’t one in front of TGC.)

To be fair, no one really gets much easily seen credit in the large scale Jumper cinema display. It’s very big and hard to miss, but even the director, Doug Liman, just has two of his more commercially successful films listed prominently but not his name. Not even Samuel L. Jackson’s name appears.

Down at the bottom of the poster artifact, though, we did find the credits. There printed in dark gray type on a black background and, son-of-a-gun, there, along with Hayden Christensen and Rachel Bilson and Doug Liman and Jamie Bell and Simon Kinberg were the words based on the novel by Steven Gould.

I held my cell phone as a poor-man’s light while Laura took a snap with hers. The people in the theater, both employees and other theater goers, looked at us very strangely, but here it is:

It was very dark in the hallway so don’t strain your eyes.

  1. Your Name In Lights! It’s very cool.

    We’ve seen a lot of movies lately, and the JUMPER posters are all over the theatres. I keep looking for you; you’re there on the final poster, but the teaser posters are all tease and no names. I cheer each time I see them, regardless.

  2. I’ve not been to a movie in a while, so I haven’t seen any of the posters, except online. May go see National Treasure 2 this week, if so, I’ll look for the Jumper poster.

    I just hope the movie lands in the one theater in town with stadium seating. And I hope it makes a TON of money.

  3. This is Nathaniel (Gregory Feeley’s son). Remember when you came to our house? Well, I do.

    I have a question. Did you ever meet Hayden Christensen? If you did, you’re sooo lucky. He’s one of my favorite actors.

    I can’t wait to see your movie.

  4. I just saw the Jumper trailer on the Fox broadcast of the Sugar bowl, including a title overlay during first few seconds as they came back from commercial. I expect this will be the case for all the Fox sports broadcasts in the next month.

  5. Nate! No, I haven’t met Hayden yet but I might at the premier.

    Nancy, my dad called after he saw that same broadcast!

    James, I’m still little people, alas.

    Christopher–I hope it drives lots of books sales, too.

    Mad, keep cheering.

  6. Hello, Steve,
    I saw the adverts for “Jumper” on TV yesterday. I had heard you sold movie rights, but this is looking very real. I’ll have to go to the theater, just to up your income!

    I’m still waiting for the award, but this is almost as good.

    Congrats from aggieland.


  7. Hal! It will only effect my income remotely. The money was up front but if it is a big success, it will help sales and if there are sequels there will be more money.
