From @aaronkkaufman Exclusive photo of the great @piercebrosnanofficial from URGE in theaters June 3rd I would forever be grateful for his talent, his support, and his powerhouse performance #urge #urgemovie @lionsgatepremiere @lionsgatemovies
Urge supposedly opens tomorrow in theaters, itunes, and video on demand. I find it odd that we only have the trailer as publicity. None of the stars are making the standard talk show circuits, there have been no press interviews released, and Lionsgate doesn't even have it on it's website. The silence speaks volumes.

I've just seen the film.
From an erotic thriller to a supernatural horror (by the time the third act comes to an end). It's just cheap. I mean, the story as a whole couldn't have been done in any other way as long as the plot was set. It's just trying to send people a message in some way. Some people interpret it as a zombie virus, whereas this one looks at the apocalyptic matter in a realistic way.

That's exactly what happens if a good kind of brand name, that Pierce is, is wasted in an idiotic independent film production and wouldn't tie himself with larger corporation film companies that actually make hundreds of millions. I'm talking Warner Bros and Marvel here. Pierce is the perfect fit for recognizable roles in these productions. But, I guess he doesn't want to do much and just be settled with an easy money making jobs. Why he isn't in a film like Kingsman: The Golden Circle? It's the perfect getaway vehicle for him from an image he wanted to break. This film just made me think worse of indie movies than I did before. And if Pierce keeps making movies like these, I'm afraid I won't be following his career as I did up until this moment.
A new designer drug causes its users to turn violent in this B-movie thriller featuring Pierce Brosnan.
The opportunity to watch a dapper Pierce Brosnan gleefully hamming it up as a devil-like figure who quotes Norman Mailer and Delmore Schwartz is the sole compensation for watching Aaron Kaufman's B-movie thriller about a group of friends who fall under the sway of an evil designer drug. Audiences tempted to catch Urge in its limited theatrical release or on VOD would be well-advised to remember Nancy Reagan's famous advice: Just say no.
