Law Abiding Citizen Movie Trailer – Updated

Beat me now for being a mom blogger and promoting a "R" movie but I am doing it THIS time because I had the fortune of being called to be an extra in this movie in the courtroom for a day. I don't know if I'll be seen in the movie BUT if you pause the trailer around minute 2:01 and look behind Jamie Foxx, THERE I am! Woohoo. Okay, it isn't very clear but I am on the left of a little cluster of people just over Jamie's shoulder.

It was a long snowy day but I enjoyed seeing the major movie in production and meeting Gerard Butler and Jamie Foxx and F. Gary Gray. Great to see them in action – in person!

The smoke machine gave just the right air of seriousness and the gray/blue lighting gave an ominous glow as we sat and waited and watched. Jamie would sing between takes, Gerard was very nice and bowed down to the dessert table at lunch even though I don't think he took any, and Director F. Gary Gray was a #1 professional who was wonderful to see directing and getting the best out of his actors. I even enjoyed seeing the woman repaint the front wall of the judge's stand with a light gray paint possibly to keep it from being so bright. For whatever good or bad, I love being a part of the whole process — I really do. Call it an overactive imagination or whatever but I love "acting real in an unreal setting." It is amazing to see how it all comes out.

UPDATE: Oops! Forgot to tell you what the movie was about! Read below the following summaries from IMDB:

Law Abiding Citizen is a thriller about a brilliant sociopath who orchestrates a series of high-profile murders that grip the city of Philadelphia – all from inside his jail cell – and the prosecutor assigned to his case who realizes he is the only one who can end the reign of terror. Written by Overture Films

The plot focuses on a man who, ten years after his wife and daughter are brutally murdered, returns to extract justice from the assistant district attorney who prosecuted the case against their killers. His vengeance threatens not only the man who allowed mercy to supersede justice, but also the system and the city that made it so. Written by The Film Department

    DH and I went to the movies last night to see District 9 (which is one of the worst movies I have ever see btw–darn DH and his choice!) and I’m sorry to say that this movie trailer was sandwiched between trailers for movies like The Final Destination, Saw 489 (haha), and the one about the “real” alien abductions. God help me, it was awful last night. But, my point being that this movie actually looked good and engaging with a plot. I only remembered to look for you after the trailer was over, sorry! Will have to try to catch it again.

  3. Wow! Sounds like so much fun! Very cool you get to do things like this.

  4. I saw you! And … I admit … I’ll never get enough of watching Gerry Butler. :)

  5. Thank you for sharing your experience. Won’t miss this one no matter when or where they show the trailer. I’ll try to remember to look for you in the courtroom if I can take my mind off the movie. I never miss a Gerard Butler movie, by the way. Quite a variety, and not all R-rated.
