Cloud Ten branches out with The Genius Club

I could really care less about Cloud Ten's movies, considering that they've made their name on bad Christian apoclaypse movies, in no less than 2(!) franchises that I've been forced to watch at Church from time to time, but they are, to their credit, trying to branch out.  For instance, they are distributing a movie called The Genius Club, which has been languishing without a distributor for some time.  

Why do I care?  Mainly because Tricia Helfer (Battlestar Galactica) is in it!  (She's the one on the far left)

Besides that, the premise sounds interesting.  To quote the offical site:
"Seven geniuses, with IQs over 200, are plucked from their lives on Christmas Eve to try to solve the world's problems in one night. If they fail, the world will come to an end. The group attempt to solve world hunger, war, cancer, terrorism, rush hour traffic, jerks, and finally the meaning of life. By morning, the group finds redemption in themselves and quite possible the world."

Not a bad story, and I can see how a Christian message might be in there, even if the synopsis doesn't mention it.  The trailer looks ok too, especially with the ranting, raving and bald Tom Sizemore as the terrorist leader.  Maybe I'll have to give Cloud Ten another chance.
