The promotion for the highly-anticipated Beastie Boys
concert film Awesome;
I Fuckin' Shot That!
kicked into overdrive this weekend, with the emergence of a trailer
, and advance screenings
all over North America. The trailer, however is
only a minute long and doesn't really show anything, which is sort of a bummer. Instead, it's all about the
anticipation, featuring quick images of backstage, pre-concert activity accompanied by a Very Important Movie-sounding
voice over ("At a time of upheaval and change...") - it's clever, but disappointing if you were hoping to get
a sense of the supposed energy and power
But you don't have to wait f or thatuntil the movie opens on March 31 - instead, you can buy tickets
to one of the incredibly wide-spread advance screenings
are taking place this Thursday. Seriously - REALLY widespread. You know how it's really annoying to be a movie fan in,
say, Beaumont-Port Arthur, Texas, or Idaho Falls, because you never get any preview screenings of anything, and nothing
you want to see ever plays at the multiplex? Well quit worrying - ThinkFilm and the Beasties have got your asses
covered, along with those of people in roughly a billion other cities in the US and Canada.
