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….

Baltimore Screening: Peeples, Tuesday May 7th

I’m a Scandal addict.  I’ve seen Hot Tub Time Machine many, many times (many.)  I love Tyler Perry.  So I’m betting that Perry’s new film Peeples will be a hit with me.  And we’ve got passes for the Baltimore screening of Peeples to give away.  What’s it about, you ask?  Here’s the synopsis:

Sparks fly when Wade Walker (Craig Robinson) crashes the preppy Peeples annual reunion in the Hamptons to ask for their precious daughter Grace’s (Kerry Washington) hand in marriage. Wade might be a fish-out-of-water among this seemingly perfect East Coast clan, but he’s not about to let himself flounder. Instead, in a wild weekend of fun, dysfunction and hilarious surprises, Wade is about to discover there’s room for all kinds of Peeples in this family, no matter their differences. Writer and first-time director Tina Gordon Chism (writer of DRUMLINE) joins forces with Tyler Perry to present a laugh-out-loud look at the family ties that freak us out . . . but bind us together with love.

Let’s face it; Craig Robinson is hilarious.  So teaming him up with the likes of  David Alan Grier, S. Epatha Merkerson, Kerry Washington, Dihann Carroll and Melvin Van Peebles should be an absolute hoot.

Baltimore screening: After Earth, on Wednesday May 29th

Hi all!

Okay, it looks like an apocalyptic summer.  First off, Oblivion and It’s A Disaster spelled out gloom and doom (though Disaster did it with a mimosa and laughs).  Soon This Is The End will be coming around to show us how stars handle the end of the world, and let’s not forget the zooma-zoom-zoom of the zombies in World War Z.

But today we’ll be focusing on After Earth, an M. Night Shyamalan joint starring father/son team Will and Jaden Smith.  The synopsis:

A crash landing leaves teenager Kitai Raige (Jaden Smith) and his legendary father Cypher (Will Smith) stranded on Earth, 1,000 years after cataclysmic events forced humanity’s escape. With Cypher critically injured, Kitai must embark on a perilous journey to signal for help, facing uncharted terrain, evolved animal species that now rule the planet, and an unstoppable alien creature that escaped during the crash. Father and son must learn to work together and trust one another if they want any chance of returning home.

Unstoppable alien creature?  Up to no good, started makin’ trouble in the neighborhood?  Ooh, count me in y’all.

You too?  Then read on for info on how to grab passes to the May 29th screening!

Free Baltimore screening: “42”, April 8th

How many of y’all have managed to grab tickets for the O’s opening day? Oh, not very many. I feel you. But how about going to see 42, a movie about the legendary Jackie Robinson instead? Yeah, I think that’s an awesome instead-of option too.

Here’s the synopsis from the studio:

Hero is a word we hear often in sports, but heroism is not always about achievements on the field of play. “42” tells the story of two men—the great Jackie Robinson and legendary Brooklyn Dodgers GM Branch Rickey—whose brave stand against prejudice forever changed the world by changing the game of baseball.

In 1946, Branch Rickey (Harrison Ford) put himself at the forefront of history when he signed Jackie Robinson (Chadwick Boseman) to the team, breaking Major League Baseball’s infamous color line. But the deal also put both Robinson and Rickey in the firing line of the public, the press and even other players. Facing unabashed racism from every side, Robinson was forced to demonstrate tremendous courage and restraint by not reacting in kind, knowing that any incident could destroy his and Rickey’s hopes. Instead, Number 42 let his talent on the field do the talking—ultimately winning over fans and his teammates, silencing his critics, and paving the way for others to follow.

In 1997, Major League Baseball retired the number 42 for all teams, making it the first number in sports to be universally retired. The only exception is April 15th—Jackie Robinson Day—commemorating the date of his first game as a Brooklyn Dodger. On that day alone, players from every team proudly wear Number 42 to honor the man who altered the course of history.

If you’re loving this like I think you are, read on for how to grab an Admit Two pass for you and your lucky aisle buddy!

Baltimore Screening: 21 And Over, 2/28

Ahh, drinking.  As adults we take the ol’ bottle, glass or shot for granted.  It’s always there, whenever you’d like one.  But for folks on the other side of The 21st Birthday, the golden key to a real I.D. is a time for celebration.  Joyous song.  Running around in a pink bikini with a teddy bear strapped to your junk.  Sound familiar?  Well, re-live it (or drool over your own expectations) with 21 And Over!

The synopsis:

Straight-A college student Jeff Chang has always done what’s expected of him. But when his two best friends Casey and Miller surprise him with a visit for his 21st birthday, he decides to do the unexpected for a change, even though his critical medical school interview is early the next morning. What was supposed to be one beer becomes one night of chaos, over indulgence and utter debauchery in this outrageous comedy.

Have you seen the trailer yet?  It’s kinda awesome.  So you wanna see it, and see it for free?  Sure you do; more beer money in your pocket for later, Amirite?

Here’s how….
