Paramount’s Insurge label has announced that The Loved Ones will be available exclusively through Tugg this June. Tugg is “an innovative collective action web platform that enables individuals to choose the films that play at local theaters.” Check it out here.
In a nutshell, it basically allows you to hold your own screening of the film at a theatre of your choosing. There’s an RSVP minimum and a few other things to take into consideration, but it’s definitely unique. The FP, another great film, is using the same strategy starting March 6th. I wonder if I could get an FP/Loved Ones double feature going in June… In any case, like Paranormal Activity‘s Demand-It program, this is a really good way to get screenings going in towns that otherwise would be skipped over.
Don’t forget: there’s a Tugg-sponsored screening tonight at the Alamo Drafthouse Village at 9pm.
“Lola Stone asked Brent Mitchell to the prom, but Brent said no, and now he’s screwed. What happens when Lola doesn’t get what she wants? She enlists Daddy’s help to throw a prom of her own, where she is queen and Brent is king — whether he likes it or not. ‘The Loved Ones’ is what happens when puppy love goes horribly, violently wrong. Brent should have said yes….”
