SECRET LOCALES ILLUMINATED BY “GREEN LANTERN” SYMBOL

WILL RECRUIT FANS IN 11 NORTH AMERICAN CITIES TO JOIN THE CORPS

BURBANK, CA – June 8, 2011 – In celebration of the June 17th theatrical release and big-screen debut of the popular superhero “Green Lantern,” Warner Bros. Pictures will electrify 11 North American cities on Monday, June 13, encouraging people to Join the (Green Lantern) Corps.   Markets include:  Los Angeles, New York City, Vancouver, San Diego, Miami, Atlanta, Cleveland, Kansas City, Sacramento, St. Louis, and New Orleans, where the film was shot.

To Join the Corps, fans will be invited to decipher local clues leading them to a secret location where the “Green Lantern” symbol will be projected from dusk until midnight.  Those attending the events, sponsored by Kodak, will have the chance to win fantastic prizes, including an opportunity to be among the first to see the film at local preview screenings, limited edition T-shirts, light-up “Green Lantern” rings, “Green Lantern: Emerald Knights” Blu-ray combo packs and more.  And some people who are photographed with the projected symbol behind them will have their photos posted on the movie Facebook page: http://www.facebook.com/greenlanternmovie.  Select markets will also give people the chance to record the “Green Lantern” oath which will be added to the Infinite Oath app on the movie website:  www.greenlantern.com.

Miami promotional partners WSVN TV – Deco Drive, WJAN TV 4, infamouskidd.com, hudakonhollywood.com and sflsocialgeeks.org will disclose clues during the week of Monday, June 6 – Friday, June 13 to help fans identify the “Green Lantern” symbol’s secret location. WPOW FM – Power 96 will host the Green Lantern Event. The first 50- 100 fans to arrive and have their picture taken with the symbol will receive passes to an advance screening, two days before the film’s nationwide theatrical release. Some of those attending the event will also receive limited edition T-shirts and other promotional prizes noted above. Some who are photographed at the event will have their picture posted on the above mentioned Facebook page : http://www.facebook.com/greenlanternmovie.

“Green Lantern” opens in theaters nationwide in 3D and 2D on Friday, June 17, 2011. The film has been rated PG-13 for intense sequences of sci-fi violence and action.

 

ABOUT “GREEN LANTERN”

In a universe as vast as it is mysterious, an elite, powerful force has existed for centuries.  Protectors of peace and justice, they are called the Green Lantern Corps. Warriors sworn to keep intergalactic order, each Green Lantern wears a ring that grants him the ability to create anything his mind can imagine.  But when a new enemy called Parallax threatens to destroy the balance of power in the Universe, their fate and the fate of Earth lie in the hands of their newest recruit, the first human ever selected: Hal Jordan.

Bringing the enduringly popular superhero to the big screen for the first time, “Green Lantern” stars Ryan Reynolds in the title role, under the direction of Martin Campbell.  Campbell directed the film from a screenplay by Greg Berlanti & Michael Green & Marc Guggenheim and Michael Goldenberg, story by Greg Berlanti & Michael Green & Marc Guggenheim, based upon characters appearing in comic books published by DC Comics.  The film also stars Blake Lively, Peter Sarsgaard, Mark Strong, Angela Bassett and Tim Robbins.  “Green Lantern” was produced by Donald De Line and Greg Berlanti.  Herbert W. Gains and Andrew Haas served as executive producers, with Lucienne Papon and Geoff Johns co-producing.

You know the words, but are you ready to take the oath?

In Brightest Day
In Blackest Night
No Evil Shall Escape My Sight
Let Those Who Worship Evil’s Might
Beware My Power
Green Lantern’s Light

Are you ready to embrace what it means to be a member of the Corp?

Well, remember the scene in the trailer where the entire CORP chants “WE ARE THE CORP” and the sky fills with the color GREEN?  That’s what it’s going to be like Monday night June 13th when the Green Lantern symbol will shine brightly on a local landmark somewhere in the tri-county South Florida radius.

BUT, just like the planet OA is hidden from the rest of the galaxy, don’t think we’re going to make it easy for you to find.

All this week, I’ll be giving out clues to our own local OA on our FAN PAGE, Facebook group, Twitter Account, and at various events throughout South Florida.

If you have the WILLPOWER to put the pieces together, and are among the first to find us at 9:00 PM on Monday night, June 13th, then you’ll be recruited to join the largest GL Party you’ve ever seen.

As an honorary member of the CORP, you’ll be eligable to win a ton of free stuff that night including:

  • limited edition T-shirts
  • “Green Lantern: Emerald Knights” Blu-ray combo packs
  • light-up “Green Lantern” rings

AND, of course, tickets to our exclusive #geekviewpreview10: Green Lantern on Wednesday night, June 15th, at 7:30pm.

For my regulars out there, this is the ONLY way you’re going to be able to get #geekviewpreview10 tickets, so I expect to see you there.

If you were on the #ChevyGeekHunt, then I expect you to be wearing your rings.

Thanks to Warner Bros for are embracing our local geek community with open arms and seriously delivering on the goods.

Finally, be sure to check back with us on Monday during the day to be given the final clue as well as instructions to prove that you’re one of us, a fellow geek.

CLUE #1: In what city does the film in the clip below take place?

CLUE #2:  To find me on Monday, June 13th, at 9pm to get your #geekview10 passes to see Green Lantern, you’ll have to go to this part of the city in CLUE #1:

CLUE #3: I think this clue kind of speaks for itself:

CLUE #4: If you’re thinking it’s “older one”, think again. This location is celebrating it’s 5th anniversary.

Think you’ve figured it out by now, please leave a comment below. Comments will be screened. I will contact you if you are right or wrong. If you are correct, you will receive additional information about Monday night.Still need help figuring it out? I’ll be at the following events over the next 3 days. Find me and scan my QR code to get an extra exclusive clue.

UPDATE: Since the Book of OA is the law, the Guardians have convened and granted us permission to reveal the location of their newest recruiting center here in South Florida:

The Adrienne Arsht Center
Miami, FL

New recruits should leave their spaceships in Parking Lot C on 13th St. between Biscayne and 2nd Ave at exactly 9:00 p.m. sharp.

There, will be offering boarding passes for 3 different recruiting sessions to the first 50-100 of you posers who show up

Wednesday, 6/15, 7: 30 p.m at AMC Aventura

Wednesday, 6/15, 7:30 p.m. at Muvico Parisian

The passphrase to get your ticket is:

” ‘<<Insert favorite member of the Corp>>’ wants to go to Geekview Preview 10.”

#geekview9 Thor, a set on Flickr.

Thanks to everyone that came out for #geekview9 to see Thor. I know it was a long drive and was thrilled that @ryantxr was able to make it. Plus, since it was in his neck of the woods, we were joined by @AGuyOnClematis who had never been to one of our #geekviewpreview before.

As you can see, it was quite a large turnout and the line just kept getting longer and longer as time went on. Regretfully, due to circumstances beyond our control, the film did not start until 11am, but it was definitely worth the wait. This was, without a doubt, a pure Marvel Comic Book film. This reminded me of just how well Sony did with the first Spider-Man. It’s such a pleasure when you see the movies done right.



@aguyonclematis: I’m on my way… looking forward to #geekview9 THOR is going to ROCK

 

@sflsocialgeeks: Even in this South Florida heat, at 9am, people are waiting in line outside for #geekview9.



@ryantxr: line is getting long at thor movie #geekview


@aguyonclematis: The line for Thor screening at #geekview9 http://t.co/Cb9xbgV



RT @aguyonclematis: RT @sflsocialgeeks: Can you believe this is the first IRL meeting of @aGuyonClematis & @ryantxr ? #geekview9 http://twitpic.com/4rfww8


@aguyonclematis: The crowd is getting rowdy ouside the Thor screening… if the doors don’t open soon there will be a riot of god-like proportions #geekview9



@aguyonclematis: We’re in!!! #geekview9 preview of Thor is starting

It’s summer time and you know what that means

SUMMER BLOCKBUSTERS!

And what better way to start this season off right than

Unfortunately, I’ve got some good news, and I’ve got some bad news.

WHEN?

The good news is that this preview is actually going to be one that several of you will not only be able to attend, but one that is early enough that you can even bring your kids to.

Saturday, April 30th, 10am

Yes, you read the right.  An early morning show.

WHERE?

Now, the really bad news, especially for those of you in Dade county

(because you knew something this good would come with a catch).

This showing is going to be at:


Regal Royal Palm Beach theater.
1003 State Road 7
Royal Palm Beach, FL 33411
(561) 795-0288

[cetsEmbedGmap src=http://maps.google.com/maps?f=q&source=s_q&hl=en&geocode=&q=Regal+near+Royal+Palm+Beach,+FL&aq=1&sll=37.0625,-95.677068&sspn=48.688845,101.337891&ie=UTF8&hq=Regal&hnear=Royal+Palm+Beach,+Palm+Beach,+Florida&ll=26.705133,-80.203457&spn=0.104432,0.197926&z=13&iwloc=A width=640 height=550 marginwidth=0 marginheight=0 frameborder=0 scrolling=no]

Please remember that, as with all #geekviewpreview events, seating is only available on a first come, first serve basis so we recommend arriving early- usually at least an hour in advance.   I will do what I can to save seats, but it’s going to be tough.

Yea, I know that’s going to be early.  Those of you, like myself, coming from Broward, are looking, at least, at an hour drive.  That means leaving around 8am at the latest; more-so for those of you in Dade.

However, since we are in the Earth Day window, and it’s Green Month, there has been some serious discussion about carpooling if there are enough people interested.

Those who have been to any of my #geekviewpreview events before can tell you that we have a fantastic time and you can just look at our previous events to see for yourself.  Don’t you want to be the first of your friends to say that “I just saw THOR !”

“How can *I* can get a pass?”

  1. Go to the comment section below.

  2. Log-in with either FACEBOOK, TWITTER, YAHOO, or OPENID.

    • If you don’t have one, it should ask you to enter your e-mail address to post anonymously

  3. Leave a comment saying:

    • How you heard about this give-away

    • Why you think you should go

    • Confirm you can make it to theater no later than 9am.

      PLEASE REMEMBER that each pass is good for up-to 2 people.

THE FIRST 10 PEOPLE TO SHOW UP IN COSTUME AS THOR WILL RECEIVE PROMOTIONAL ITEMS ALONG WITH VIP SEATING FOR THEM AND A GUEST FOR THE SCREENING OF THOR.

Inspired by true events that are too over-the-top for even the wildest imaginations to conjure, CASINO JACK lays bare the wild excesses and escapades of lobbyist Jack Abramoff (portrayed in the film by Two-time Academy Award® Winner Kevin Spacey). Aided by his business partner Michael Scanlon (Barry Pepper), Jack parlays his clout over some of the world’s most powerful men with the goal of creating a personal empire of wealth and influence. When the two enlist a mob-connected buddy (Jon Lovitz) to help with one of their illegal schemes, they soon find themselves in over their heads, entrenched in a world of mafia assassins, murder and a scandal that spins so out of control that it makes worldwide headlines.

Casino Jack will open South Florida Theaters January 7, 2011.

The advance screening will be held on January 4, 2011 @ 7:30pm

Location:

AMC Aventura 
19501 Biscayne Blvd. #3001 
Aventura, FL  33180

Unfortunately, I will not be able to attend this preview, so I will need someone to take attendance and pictures in my absence.  To get passes, please leave a comment below.  I will try to get as many as I can out.  Each pass gets 2 people in.

Last night, we had our last, and what I could claim, was our best #geekviewpreview of 2010.
As @iamJeffCohen said while we were leaving, “That was the way to end the year.”  Boy was he right.  We had an absolutely fantastic crowd comprised of some of our more famous local #socialgeeks:


@subeehonee: @sflsocialgeeks @highguyz @dee_deez @STACISMAIL@BeahBunnie @iamJeffCohen yay can’t wait to see everyone :).



2 faces that have become well-known
at all our #geekviewpreviews
@highuyz & @iamJeffCohen






And some of the crew from @tatescomics led by Nakia Mann.


By 6:30, the place was packed and the line was long.   This is the view from the very front of the line:


And, of course, the obligatory group photo shot:
