Hayden Christensen and Doug Liman at MIT Jumper Screening

Jumper's Hayden Christensen and Doug Liman will both be in attendance at a screening of selected scenes from the movie and a panel discussion with MIT Physics Professors Max Tegmark and Edward Farhi on the MIT campus Wednesday, January 16, 2008. You can get more info on the event on the Arts@MIT webpage.

Jumper, a 20th Century Fox February movie release, is the story of a young man with a genetic anomaly who finds he can teleport anywhere in the world in a split second. Trouble comes when he finds he isn't the only 'Jumper' out there and a secret organization isn't as excited about his talent as he is. In fact, they want to kill him because of the dangers Jumpers pose in being able to break laws at will and also a little something to do with creating rifts in the space-time continuum.

But if you think Jumper is just an action movie just read the synopsis:

"David is a Jumper who can teleport himself to the streets of New York and Tokyo, the ruins of Rome, and the Sahara Desert. He can see twenty sunsets in one night, whisk his girlfriend around the world in the blink of an eye, and grab millions of dollars in a matter of minutes. But David's global odyssey takes a deadly turn when he finds himself relentlessly pursued by a secret organization sworn to kill Jumpers. Forming an uneasy alliance with another Jumper, David becomes a key player in a war that seems to have no end. As these world-changing events unfold, David begins to discover the secrets and mythology behind his incredible ability."

I find jumping around the world to all those beautiful cities and taking time for sunsets and whisking your girlfriend around the globe just as romantic as I find it action-packed. And when Jumper whisks into theaters on Valentine's Day 2008, I'll have my head in the clouds thinking of romance and still be ready for an exciting ride.
