The movie was shot in continuity, so Sandra Bullock had to meet with the crew every day so she could know what she knew on any given day. See more »

You see, history's full of unexplained phenomena. Nobody knows why. Some people thought they suffered from what the ancients called "Blasphemare absens fides": The dangers of the faithless.
It's the notion that nature abhors a vacuum, even a spiritual one. People who've lost their beliefs, they're like empty vessels, more susceptible to having their lives taken over by forces bigger than themselves
Almost like a curse.
Or a miracle.
Yeah, well, I don't believe in miracles.

Don't believe the bad critics and definitely not the low rating on IMDb.
I went to see Premonition yesterday and I enjoyed it very much, so I can't understand why people say that this is a bad film. It's a good psychological drama with top acting and good directing. It's a movie on which you have to focus, but that goes automatically and it's not so hard to follow when you don't think "What the hell is going on" during the film.
Sandra Bullock is very convincing, as always, and we also get some good performances by Kate Nelligan, Nia Long and Julian McMahon.
So please, don't listen to the critics, they don't know what they're talking about. And as for the rating on IMDb: the only explanation I can think of is that a lot of people don't get this film because it's too complicated (although it's not), or because they didn't like the ending, or maybe because they expected too much. But this is definitely a very good drama, and it's one of those movies that make you think about how important life is.
Everyone who wants to see this movie: see it without any expectations and prejudices, you won't be disappointed.
