    Re: Team movie tonight?

    Zero Dark Thirty is a really good movie as it relates to attention to detail, working as a team to defeat a common enemy, etc. Not an epic movie but very watchable.

    Also have to say I enjoyed Django although it has significant use of the n word which was in common usage at the time period of the movie. It actually has some quite humerous episodes in it but also has some really brutal acts. Of course, the movie ends with Django taking care of all the bad guys and rides off into the sunset with his lady.

    Zero Dark 30 looks like it will be the one.

    Don't worry about them being ready...I'm hearing that Saban is bringing in motivational speaker Matt Foley to speak to them before the game....

    This should get them ready. No one wants to be living in a van down by the Black Warrior River.

    That movie could also be the final thing to get them focused. We've got to go in and get that football from those Irishmen and keep it away from them. Go after that football like Bin Laden has it.

    They brought Red Tails to the hotel for them last year. Might have been the same this year.

    This certainly falls within my area of knowledge...

    It's been out in limited release since December 19th, in order to qualify for the 2013 Academy Awards. Nominations for the Oscars closed on January 4th, and the nominations will be announced on January 10th.

    The film goes into wide release on January 11th.

    So, Columbia's PR department has a bunch of ads with "Nominated for X Academy Awards" ready to blitz on the 10th in time for the wide release. Also, the film will have been wide for 6 weeks when the awards are handed out on February 24th, and will still be in wide release to get a bump in attendance if it wins Best Picture.

    And yes, a distributor's marketing department will gladly supply a screening for the free advertising that it provides.
