Jeeze, I thought the 1 percent would be better looking than this!

Nah, neither would I. But Starz is hoping that writers Gonzalez Iñárritu, Alexander Dinelaris Jr, Nicolás Giacobone and Armando Bo, who last collaborated on BIRDMAN, which munchman predicts will be the second coolest feature film of the season (behind GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY, of course) will make this thing they’re calling THE ONE PERCENT pay off.

According to Deadline, THE ONE PERCENT is about “a downtrodden farmer [struggling] to hold onto his family and his farm, when a bizarre twist of fate [reveals] a life-changing secret that will either save them or ruin them.” (Yeah, I had to edit this quote cuz otherwise the sucker made like absolutely no sense.) 

Since there are no pix or videos from THE ONE PERCENT to show ya, how about the BIRDMAN trailer. I mean, what the hell?
