Paramount Pictures hosted CinemaCon’s annual “State of the Union” presentation where folks from the National Association of Theater Owners and Film Studios gather together to slap each other on the back for doing gang buster business. Apparently the film industry isn’t dead as it grossed over $30 billion worldwide last year and broke previous records. The presentation kicked off with a sizzle reel of all the top money making pictures from 2014. After a series of speeches and awards it was time for Paramount to come to play.
This weekend your fearless leader is making the annual sojourn to Vegas. I’m flying a red eye on Frontier Air – it’s going to be fine, it’s going to be fine. If I say it enough I’ll believe it. It’s going to be fine…. Who am I kidding; Frontier Air sucks monkey balls. Only the annual National Association of Theater Owners (NATO) convention CinemaCon can get me on Frontier again. CinemaCon is where Movie Theater Owners get together and celebrate their love of movies (as well as whine) directly to the studios. Considering everyone talks about the death of the industry, there are more and more fancier theaters coming to my area – not soon enough and most are too far away. There will be studio presentations, partaaaays, and some cool interviews.

The Gambler is a remake of the 1974 classic about a man with an addiction to gambling – to the point of endangering his life. In this version, a university professor gets in deep with three very deadly members of the gambling underworld. This version has a unique take on character that, just barely, allows for the possibility of a hopeful (if not necessarily happy) finale.
