Reflecting Pool Trailer

This was suggested by commenter Craig. I had looked at an earlier trailer for this film, but according to IMDB the film has actually been completed. The plot synopsis screams "disinformation":

An investigation of the 9/11 events by a Russian-American journalist and a father of a 9/11 victim implicates the US government in the attacks. ALEX PROKOP (JK Baltazar), a successful journalist, receives a rare 9/11 video tape revealing missile-like bursts of light on the hijacked planes as they hit the Twin Towers.

Heh, sort of reveals the risk involved in doing a 9-11 Troof film as fiction. The lead time on a feature film is so long that something that was hot once (the missile-like bursts of light actually opened Loose Change I) can be considered ridiculous even by the ardent fans of the CT awhile later.

To his astonishment, he discovers that the firm providing WTC security was run by immediate family members of the President. We follow Alex and Cooper as they investigate the inexplicable collapse of the 47-story WTC Building Seven, disprove the implausible airliner "attack" on the Pentagon, and uncover the illegal destruction of physical evidence from Ground Zero.

Oh, swell, the usual crap about Marvin Bush, practically the easiest claim to debunk.

The trailer shows people playing with models of the WTC and Pentagon, which reminds me of a manic Richard Dreyfuss constructing that butte in his living room in Close Encounters of the Third Kind. And the 911 Truth Org guy in South Park had a scale model of the towers on his coffee table as well.

It will be interesting to see if this film actually makes it to the theatres; the production values and the acting look to be the "straight to DVD" quality. Oooh, the evil FBI is threatening the publisher! Never mind that Nancy Jo Sales was able to sell her article to Vanity Fair on the Loosers, never mind that Hustler has published a couple of glowing tributes to 9-11 Troof, never mind that C-Span broadcast the idiotic "Scholars" panel from LA last year; somehow this Russian journalist is getting too close to the Truth?
