Val Kilmer has been on a kick lately with movies featuring environmental themes — and his latest one tackles the subject of global warming head-on. Inside a steam bath. Filled with attractive people.
Called The Steam Experiment, it features Kilmer playing a scientists that’s gone a bit nutty and wants the world to hear his theory on the destructive power of global warming. The only way he knows people will read it is if it’s the main headline in a major newspaper. To do this, (and giving life to metaphors on global warrming), he rigs a steam room to trap six, conveniently sexy people, and slowly raise in temperature. The longer his crazy theory and headline stay out of the newspaper, the longer the people cook and ultimately die.
Just like Kilmer’s other upcoming flick, The Thaw, this trailer does very little justice to what might actually be a cool movie. Fingers crossed — especially since it also stars Armand Assante and Eric Roberts.
