When this whole thing started I was just a guy who liked Michael Bay movies. I saw the latest trailer for Pain & Gain and got really excited. I thought it would be a perfect reason to assemble my dream Bay lineup in 35mm and watch them all in a darkened theater with like minded people and have an action packed day of fun movies and great conversation.
Then we got Paramount involved and they were so into the idea they not only gave us permission to show Pain & Gain early, but they wanted to know if we could go bigger.
The irony of this is not lost on me. What started out as a guy and some movies has now taken on a life of it’s own and grown into a production as big as a Michael Bay film itself. Michael Bay personally approved my trailer (WHICH WAS INSANE TO ME!) and was so excited by this whole thing he elected to create something specifically for this event. I haven’t seen it and I won’t until Sunday on the big screen, but from what information I have been getting, it will be one of the most insane and ridiculous things a celebrity has done for us.
When you do events like this you end up doing interviews with websites and local publications and needless to say I’ve been talking about Michael Bay and his movies A LOT this week. And it made me realize how important he is to action cinema history. After getting the okay from the folks at work we elected to induct Michael Bay into the Alamo Drafthouse Tough Guy Hall of Fame and now The Hollywood Reporter is covering the event!
This whole thing just keeps getting bigger and better and I honestly can’t wait until Sunday because this anticipation is getting out of control. If you haven’t had a chance to grab tickets yet we still have them available in all markets.
I can’t promise you I know everything that is going to happen on Sunday at BAYMAGEDDON, but I can promise you it’s going to be something you will remember and talk about for a long time.
Get your tickets NOW!
