  • Dec. 8 - New site page created for the Ultra-Condensed Equilibrium originally posted on the message board.  Many thanks to all of the fan contributions & wit!!
  • Dec. 7 - Source links for the Japanese & Korean editions of Equilibrium have been added to the site... 

  • Dec. 6 - Warning...unsolicited webmaster ramble...

A year ago today a small film was released to a meager 301 theaters in the USA.  Little did I realize at the time what a profound effect it would have on me, catching it only because Christian Bale's action performance in Reign of Fire had been impressive and found Equilibrium listed in his IMDb credits.  I saw no trailer...no poster...only read its synops at IMDb, then learned of its release through Ebert & Roeper.

Stunning is all I can say of my theater experience. One I seldom find but longingly seek with each new film.  The action junkie in me wanted...no needed more, but Equilibrium was unceremoniously dropped from the theaters before I could adequately fill my new addiction. In desperation I turned to the Net to take the edge off of the withdrawals only to find CHUD.com. Not even an official website had been granted to this film. 

In creating & maintaining this site I aimed to fill a need. A need that had been severely neglected since I knew without a doubt that Equilibrium would & will be discovered by like minded people & action aficionados. I didn't want to see the small but incredible amount of information about this film lost in the vast receptacle we call the Worldwide Web. So, uncharacteristically, I created a "fansite."

Rewarding is an understatement.  This film & this site have been more fulfilling to me then many endeavors I have blindly pursued in my life. The gift of the filmmakers in creating Equilibrium has touched me deeply.  The love & devotion of the fans is overwhelming.  My appreciation & gratitude can never be adequately expressed except in the work I render here. Thank you!!

    "I had thought, at worst, the film would be simply dismissed - but, in fact, it is being pilloried. ...it muddily seems to me that the film is being held to a much higher standard of comparison than most $20 mil sci-fi/action films - the narrative standard of 1984 (the best book of the 20th century in my opinion) and the action/production standard of The Matrix. ...But, in the end, I can only hope that cinephiles will find the film and judge for themselves because it is the audience of people who love and love to be entertained by films that I made it for." - Kurt Wimmer, CHUD Message Board

    • Oct. 24 - Kurt Wimmer's recent remarks about Ultraviolet from the CHUD message board have been added to the Equilibrium Center...

    "...I am off to China tonite to begin the undertaking of making this film. Between now and February 9th - the first scheduled day of principal photography - lie innumerable pitfalls; any of which could scuttle the production and send me back to America. But if I make it that far, and beyond, through the very long shoot - then, I will do everything in my power to make for you and for me - the best film I possibly can. Kurt "

    As fans of his first film we need to remember to keep our expectations at a realistic level...at least until principal photography begins. Here's wishing him luck & all the best!!
