I’ve been teasing you, tempting you, building the anticipation until you could barely stand it anymore. Yeah, my sincerest apologies for that. But now, finally, here it is… “Answer This!” will be host a Special Screening in Ann Arbor…
Friday, October 8 at 7:30 PM at the Michigan Theater!
Official Artist Rendition of Ann Arbor Premiere of Answer This!
To anyone paying close attention, this may not have come as too much of a surprise, thanks to some intrepid reporting by AnnArbor.com, and, well, thanks to me prematurely spilling the beans in a great interview with Shei Magazine. But now it’s officially official: October 8 is the night, and Ann Arbor’s Michigan Theater is the place, and ALL are welcome! (More on options for buying advance tickets soon.)
The Ann Arbor Special Screening will be a chance for “Answer This!” to show its deep appreciation to the city and the university community for all the support they’ve given us, during the shoot and since. Our movie won’t have its grand national premiere until next year, when it’ll be appearing at a major, high-profile film festival (more on that to come), followed by a wide theatrical release to major markets and college towns around the country. But Ann Arbor and the U will get to see it FIRST, before anyone else, as our way of saying thanks.
And because it’ll be tons of fun.
Not only will we be there, but there will also be plenty of cast, including Chris Gorham (who stars in the great new hit show on USA, “Covert Affairs.” Check it out!), Professor Ralph Williams, and more. And we’ll be holding awesome promotional events throughout the week to get people pumped for Friday night:
• An “Answer This!” Pub Trivia Night at Ashley’s, in which teams will get paired with – and match wits with – our cast members. (Time and day to come)
• An autograph session with us and cast at M Den, on State and Liberty, where we’ll show off great “Answer This!” merchandise, including Ice Tiger shirts and an amazing Ralph Williams “Yea/Nay?” shirt we’re designing right now.
• A panel discussion at the Ann Arbor Public Library on Monday, October 4.
• Not to mention a big bash at the Michigan Union after the screening itself.
POST YOUR SUGGESTIONS for other October events in the comments section – and if we use your idea, we’ll give you a FREE DVD of the movie, along with OTHER GOODIES. (Why oh why do I KEEP using ALL CAPS??)
(In case you forgot...)
More information on advance ticketing for the Special Screening soon! We’ll also be releasing our official trailers and movie poster within the next two weeks! Excitement! I look forward to hearing all ideas for events and promotions, and in the meantime, please make sure to check out this amazing video piece on the movie, us, and Ralph Williams, produced by the University of Michigan.
It even has some advance clips of the film!
