The Budweiser brewing company is learning a valuable lesson about free publicity. 'Flight,' which hit theaters this past weekend to an impressive $25 million at the box office, is facing some drama with the Anheuser-Busch beer company in light of the fact that the product placement of Budweiser can arguably be linked to drunk driving. Talk about a big whoops!
Whoever first pitched 'Wreck-It Ralph' certainly got a nice big bonus check from Disney today. A cute hook that appeals to adults and kids + positive reviews = one of the biggest openings in weeks. And hey! 'Flight' didn't do too shabby either! Wait...are this good box office numbers? Does this mean the holiday movie season has officially arrived? Yes. Yes it has.
Insert your own "the prodigal son has returned" joke here, but there's no denying how exciting it is that director Robert Zemeckis has finally released himself from his experimental motion capture prison and is back to making real movies. His first live action film since 'Cast Away' in 2000, 'Flight' premiered to positive reviews at the New York Film Festival and looks like it may be a big player in the upcoming awards season. But you're here because a new clip has been released from the film, so scroll on down!
For Robert Zemeckis's return to live-action filmmaking, he's got Denzel Washington in the middle of an averted tragedy. The trailer for 'Flight' shows Washington pull off something miraculous, but that may not be enough for the press and public.
