Got Paranoia? Grab some screening passes and you will….

Paranoia, the destroyer!  (Bonus “you’re awesome” points for anyone who remembers that groovy tune.)  Here’s a little something that’s sure to give you paranoia…the movie Paranoia, of course!  It’s a tense thriller, and it’s got some amazing actors headlining, including Liam Hemsworth, Gary Oldman, Amber Heard and Harrison Ford. What’s it about?  Glad you asked.  Take it away, PR gurus!

The high stakes thriller Paranoia takes us deep behind the scenes of global success to a deadly world of greed and deception.  The two most powerful tech billionaires in the world (Harrison Ford and Gary Oldman) are bitter rivals with a complicated past who will stop at nothing to destroy each other.  A young superstar (Liam Hemsworth), seduced by unlimited wealth and power falls between them, and becomes trapped in the middle of the twists and turns of their life-and-death game of corporate espionage.  By the time he realizes his life is in danger, he is in far too deep and knows far too much for them to let him walk away.

We’ve got passes to the Baltimore area screening.  Want one for yourself?  Of course you do; who can wait ’til it opens on August 16th?  Read on, good people.  Read on….

Passes to the Baltimore screening of Percy Jackson: Sea of Monsters? We got ’em!

I love Young Adult fiction (or, as the cool kids say, YA).  So I enjoyed Percy Jackson: The Lightning Thief.  But last night I saw the killer trailer for the sequel, Sea of Monsters, and I was blown away.  Looks like they’re cranking the dial to 11 for this film, and I for one couldn’t be happier.  Can you hear my mythology-loving heart go a-pitter-a-pat?  Yeah you can.  And sorry about that.

What’s this film about, you ask?  Well, our beloved PR folks have an answer for you:

Based on the best-selling series by Rick Riordan, Percy Jackson, the son of Poseidon, continues his epic journey to fulfill his destiny, as he teams with his demigod friends to retrieve the Golden Fleece, which has the power to save their home and training ground, Camp Half-Blood.

Percy Jackson: Sea of Monsters opens officially on August 7th.  But seeing it early?  Sweet.  Here’s the usual info:

Free Baltimore screening: The Conjuring – July 16th, 2013

It’s hot outside.  I’m stating a fact.  And kinda whining a little.  Okay, a lot.  So why not beat the heat with a cold chill running down your spine?  Because we’ve got passes to the Baltimore screening of The Conjuring y’all!

Yes, it’s a horror movie.  And it’s based on a real-life couple.  Wanna know more?  Our pulchritudinous PR posse has given us the deets:

Before there was Amityville, there was Harrisville.  Based on the true life story, “The Conjuring” tells the tale of how world renowned paranormal investigators Ed and Lorraine Warren were called upon to help a family terrorized by a dark presence in a secluded farmhouse.

Forced to confront a powerful demonic entity, the Warrens find themselves caught in the most horrifying case of their lives.

From New Line Cinema comes a feature film drawn from the case files of married demonologists Ed and Lorraine Warren.  “The Conjuring” stars Academy Award® nominee Vera Farmiga (“Up in the Air,” TV’s “Bates Motel”) and Patrick Wilson (“Insidious,”) as the Warrens, and Ron Livingston (“The Odd Life of Timothy Green”) and Lili Taylor (TV’s “Hemlock Grove”) as Roger and Carolyn Perron, residents of the house.

Joey King, Shanley Caswell, Haley McFarland, Mackenzie Foy and newcomer Kyla Deaver play the Perrons’ five daughters, and Sterling Jerins is the Warrens’ little girl, Judy. Rounding out the cast are Marion Guyot as Judy’s grandmother; Steve Coulter as Father Gordan, Shannon Kook as the Warren’s investigative assistant, Drew; and John Brotherton as the local law enforcement official skeptical of the Perron’s claims and the Warrens’ tactics.

James Wan (the “Saw,” “Insidious”) directs from a screenplay by Chad Hayes & Carey W. Hayes (“The Reaping”).  The film is produced by Tony DeRosa-Grund, Peter Safran and Rob Cowan, with Walter Hamada and Dave Neustadter serving as executive producers.  Reuniting with the director are members of his “Insidious” creative team, director of photography John R. Leonetti, editor Kirk Morri, costume designer Kristin M. Burke, composer Joseph Bishara and his “Saw” production designer, Julie Berghoff.

New Line Cinema presents a Safran Company / Evergreen Media Group Production of a James Wan Film, “The Conjuring.”  Opening July 19, 2013, the film will be distributed by Warner Bros. Pictures, a Warner Bros. Entertainment Company.

You know how it goes; read on to see how to score a pass for yourself.  If you DARE….

Geek for e’s got Pacific Rim screening passes…for you? Yeah baby.

Pacific Rim.  You’ve seen the trailer, or the television commercials.  Big ol’ monsters coming out of the depths of the sea, and humans needing to build big ol’ robots to fight ’em.  This could be THE summer blockbuster of the season y’all.  And we’ve got passes.  Woot!

For those of you that need more info, here’s the synopsis from our lovely and talented PR folks:

When legions of monstrous creatures, known as Kaiju, started rising from the sea, a war began that would take millions of lives and consume humanity’s resources for years on end.

To combat the giant Kaiju, a special type of weapon was devised: massive robots, called Jaegers, which are controlled simultaneously by two pilots whose minds are locked in a neural bridge.  But even the Jaegers are proving nearly defenseless in the face of the relentless Kaiju.  On the verge of defeat, the forces defending mankind have no choice but to turn to two unlikely heroes—a washed up former pilot (Charlie Hunnam) and an untested trainee (Rinko Kikuchi)—who are teamed to drive a legendary but seemingly obsolete Jaeger from the past.  Together, they stand as mankind’s last hope against the mounting apocalypse.

Ready for some monstrous action?  Me too — read on for how to score a pass for yourownself!
