Movie was excellent. Well worth the wait. General release in October, according to the executive producer (who spoke after the film), but why wait? Catch it Thursday at 6:30 PM.

Speaking of which, the executive producer asked how many people in the audience were chess players, and while I didn't see how many hands were raised behind me, none was raised in front of me. Get some chess-playing butts in those seats!
