Up In the Air and Captain





Check out the parallel between this poster from the new George Clooney Film, Up In the Air, with Mr. Clooney looking out the winodow of a US Airport, and the image of Abu Raed looking out the window in Jordan's airport.

Hhhmmm. So should one be glad that imitation is a form of flattery, or mad over content borrowing, or is it just interesting?

I think it's just an interesting coincidence.

Sorry, no updates on Atlanta or Columbus yet. Just got back from overseas and will check on any news with our distributors. Thanks for checking. I'll post anything new in the next couple of days.

i've been angry at the 'up in the air' image because i thought it ripped off 'captain abu raed' :)

glad i googled it, and saw that you think the same thing!

i really love that frame. silhouetting at its best. sometimes when i look back on the months i lived in amman, i feel like it was some sort of warm magical place. all the car honking fades away.

THANK you amin, i have only seen trailers of Captain, but the wide shots from the citadel and wasat-al balad brought tears to my eyes. so glad more people will see the beauty of the country and its people.
