THE LIFE AND TIMES OF PAUL THE PSYCHIC OCTOPUS
World Sales: Smiley Film Sales
The Life and Times of Paul the Psychic Octopus tells the story of the world’s most beloved and scorned cephalopod, whose remarkable string of eight correct predictions during the 2010 Soccer World Cup made him a worldwide superstar. Whether Paul is an honest-to-goodness 21st-century oracle, or a ten- tacle sham, remains a hotly debated topic. What is certain, though, is that Paul’s unmatched string of correct predictions has affected us, made us dream and impacted popular culture.
After his smash hit documentary The People vs. George Lucas, a film about a Star Wars lost in space, Denver-based Swiss film maker, Alexandre O. Philippe is back with a genuine biopic, moving and amusing, but of tentacular proportions – one that explores celebrity mania at its most outrageous, the science of probabilities and the possibility of higher powers.
