I bet you didn’t even know there is a convention as such. Movie theater owners aren’t typically known for being the most upbeat crowd. But BAM! Throw in Brad Pitt to host for a night, and all of a sudden CinemaCon is the new hotspot.
A women shrieked from the balcony as she shouted ”I love you!” over to Pitt, who was standing center stage. (Sigh) Oh, the power of Brad’s infectious charm. The event was held at Caesars Palace Colosseum, hundreds of exhibitors from around the globe gathered up for the annual convention.
Paramount Pictures kicked off the four-day conference by introducing Pitt’s zombie flick World War Z. The exclusive event showcases studio footage from their most anticipated upcoming releases. The convention has movie stars flown in to help promote the films, all in hopes the film will be booked by cinemas. Pitt teased the crowd with brief footage from the upcoming 3-D film. Pitt plays a character who is employed by United Nation, who undergoes a battle to save the world from a zombie pandemic. During the film, Pitt encounters ruthless zombies on planes and on the crowded streets of Jerusalem. The film is currently scheduled to have a late June release. Anything Brad Pitt is in, I’ll be there with my popcorn opening night.
