More Movies You Never Heard Of! week begins at Trailers from Hell with director and TFH creator Joe Dante introducing Richard Brooks' political satire "Wrong Is Right," starring Sean Connery. 

Movies set in the near future are sometimes rendered moot by subsequent events, but Richard Brooks' bizarrely prescient political satire makes more sense in a post 9/11 world than it did in 1982. Only nominally based on Charles McCarry's espionage novel "The Better Angels", this adaptation takes a comparatively minor character, newshound Patrick Hale, and inflates him to media hero status worthy of star Sean Connery, heading a large cast of familiar faces.
