Rescue Dawn is finally going to released on July 4

Rescue Dawn! Open July 4 in LA, NYC! July 13 in 7 more cities (probably San Francisco, Chicago, Toronto and a few others)! 50 cities by July 27! 93% positive review on Rotten Tomatoes! Hooray!

Impossibly cool, super-crazy director and eternal pessimist Werner Herzog’s Rescue Dawn, a dramatic adaptation of the 1997 documentary Little Dieter Needs to Fly, also by Herzog, is finally going to shown in theatres.

If the early reviews are any indication, it’s probably going to join the rank of Herzog masterpieces alongside Woyzeck and Fitzcarraldo.

Now, there are some people saying that this movie glorifies war and even has pro-Bush political motivation to it. Well, these people are complete retards, and if you know anyone who thinks this, you should put him or her on call-block immediately. The movie only tells the story of Dieter Dengler (played by Christian Bale), the only person to escape successfully from a Pathet Lao prison camp. It is not supposed to be and does not present itself to be a commentary on the war itself.

In summation: yay Rescue Dawn! yay Werner Herzog! go see the movie!

Update: Apple has the trailers up on its web site.
