leodi.jpgCelebrity mixed with global warming generates heat. Only open in four theatres so far, Leonardo diCaprio's documentary, "11th Hour," is starting some buzz. So far only movie reviewers and people in L.A. and The Big Apple can get to the film.

The official film website lists more openings soon. Boston, Chicago, Dallas, Detroit, Philadelphia, San Francisco, Seatlle and Washington D.C. have openings on August 24. Also eight Canadian cities. Then a week later the doc debuts in thirty smaller North American cities.

The film apparently tells you some very specific things to do, or not do. No more bottled water, says one reviewer. That's good. Your kidneys don't need anymore leached plastic anyway.

Here is a sampler of commentary on the doc so far: New York Times review L.A. Times feature L.A. Times review S.F. Chronicle review MSNBC review Huffington blog

The doc did $56,000 in four theatres last weekend. Modest but not bad apparently. As we blogged earlier Leonardo's serious about this environment thing.

  • You are a race...

    ...and your goal is to survive until the expansion with cooling of your planet's star, or until the irresistable disappearance of your bioniche for other reasons. How much technology do you *need* to survive until then? None.

    I first heard of the 'The 11th Hour' film during the Live Earth concerts, where it was
    briefly mentioned by Al Gore. Leonardo is a smart and genuinely dedicated to the
    global warming issues kind of guy.

    No biggie on no more bottled water in the U.S. Studies have shown that municipal
    tap water is as good as store bought, and your bottled water was probably taken
    from the city tap.

  • RE: No more bottled water

    There's BPA in bottled water. None of that in virtually free tap water. Why not put your money toward the municipal systems instead of fancy brand names that are more expensive than gasoline drop for drop?
