Picking Up the Spare: Keeping Up With the Joneses, Pirates of the Caribbean, Cars 3, The Big Sick
Keeping Up With the Joneses
I usually don’t cover developments after the movie is on home video, but you have to stand up and applaud 20th Century Fox for jumping on the Gal Gadot bandwagon by releasing a clip from last year’s under-performing comedy starring the now-hot actress.
The Big Sick
Director Michael Showalter wasn’t a huge part of the pre-release publicity efforts but finally gets a feature to himself that talks about how between this and his recent Hello, My Name Is Doris turn he’s on the cusp of a breakout.
Fullscreen Media is running a screening for the movie at VidCon, a massive event devoted to video production that’s happening now.
Promotions for the movie will continue into the summer, with Mattel offering an exclusive set that includes not only a finished McQueen car but also versions from earlier stages in the toy’s production.
Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales
Saw this small poster hanging out on a table at my local AMC Theater. No idea how long they’ve been there but it was the movie’s third weekend and there were still plenty available.
