First Trailer For Cory McAbee's CRAZY & THIEF

Todd Brown, Founder and Editor
The American Astronaut and Stingray Sam director Cory McAbee is headed back to the big screen and this time he's taking his kids with him. It's not the first time, of course, McAbee's daughter Willa having played a key part in Stingray Sam but this time out Willa and McAbee's young son Huck will be taking the leads as the titular Crazy & Thief.

A seven year old girl takes her two year old brother on a voyage of chance and fantasy. They begin their journey by following a star chart that they had created by splashing paint on an old envelope. They search city streets, store windows and garbage for star shaped images that coincide with the dots on their map. On their adventure they meet a one eyed man who they view as a dangerous cyclops. In an attempt to connect with the children the cyclops tries to describe a nativity scene, but without all the facts. The children's interpretation of his story sends them on a quest to find a time machine in Bethlehem, Pennsylvania.

Once again a musical - with the music again provided by McAbee's band, The Billy Nayer Show - this one feels quite different for McAbee, who has traded in his normal highly designed black and white for something far more off the cuff and organic. Check the trailer below.
