Garth Franklin reports that a poster and teaser trailer have arrived online to promote the upcoming release. The good thing about the delay for the studio is that Chris Hemsworth has had a chance for his name to settle into American homes as THOR; which gives the film more marketing power

The sun was scorching, the ground was dry and cracked and small dunes of sand shown in the distance.
The convoy of military vehicles carrying U.S. soldiers, a barrage of machine guns, grenades and sniper rifles rolled through the dusty valley – heading right into an ambush by insurgents in Afghanistan.
All of this was found not in an overseas war zone, but in Milan, Mich. on Friday, July 13.
More than 40 cast and crew members part of the independent, small-budget production “Approaching Midnight” gathered in Milan’s London Aggregates, a 700 acre privately owned area of land, to shoot the film’s opening scene.
Check out an interview with the director and other cast members at the Heritage Link above.

Feature Film AKA Jimmy Picard Awarded Michigan Film Incentive
LANSING – The Michigan Film Office announced today the feature film AKA Jimmy Picard has been approved for a film incentive from the state. The project is based on a true story of a WWII veteran and Blackfoot Indian with the alias Jimmy Picard and one of the nation’s first documented cases of dream analysis and interpretation. The film is expected to shoot in Monroe and metro Detroit.
“Michigan doubles as Topeka, Kansas and New York City in this period film – another testament to the diversity and quality of locations found throughout our state,” said Carrie Jones, director of the Michigan Film Office. “Michigan beat out a number of other states for this project, helping to put our crew and talent here in the state to work.”
The project was awarded an incentive of $1,964,810 on $6,929,375 of projected in-state expenditures. The project is expected to hire 135 Michigan workers with a full time equivalent of 35 jobs.
The project is being directed by celebrated director Arnaud Desplechin and produced by the French company Why Not Productions. Why Not Productions has produced A Prophet and the remake of Assault of Precinct 13 as well a number of BAFTA and Cannes-award winning films.
“From the compelling locations to a competitive incentive program, Michigan offered the best all-around package for filming AKA Jimmy Picard,” said Jennifer Roth, producer on the project. “We have some fantastic locations lined up and we are excited to start filming.”
To date in 2012, three projects have been awarded a total of $14,149,273 on $47,936,564 of approved production expenditures for the year. These projects are expected to create 630 Michigan hires with a full time equivalent of 206 jobs.
