The studio took over the principle stage on Thursday afternoon to current its slate in entrance of theater house owners, presenting a sizzle reel on the prime of the present that teased titles John Wick 4, Expendables 4, About My Father, Are You There God? It’s Me, Margaret and extra. (More on every movie to return because the presentation unfolds.)
Kicking off the session was comedy famous person Sebastian Maniscalco who took over the stage as this system’s MC. Fitting selection for Las Vegas as he routinely sells out in Sin City and past, and much more becoming as he toplines Lionsgate’s About My Father, loosely based mostly on his life story and starring Robert De Niro, Leslie Bibb and Kim Cattrall.
Confidently strolling the Colosseum stage inside Caesars Palace, Maniscalco dropped a brief comedy set that coated facial coverings, the loopy price of hitting a pool in Las Vegas and even the dimensions of the CinemaCon badges (that are very massive, by the way in which). “I have been watching you for the past three days, milling about the casino,” he stated. “”Who the hell determined that the lanyards had been going to be this massive? What are you maintaining in there? Your tax returns? Some of you’re strolling across the on line casino [hunched over].”
Regarding Vegas vogue, he quipped, “Vegas has changed a lot in the last 30 years. [People] used to come here dressed up. Looks like a slumber party out there.”
Jokes apart, Lionsgate then rolled out a video message from Curtis Jackson, greatest generally known as rap icon 50 Cent, who launched the star-packed Expendables 4 reel. The Scott Waugh directed pic stars 50 Cent alongside heavyweights Jason Statham, Sylvester Stallone, Megan Fox, Dolph Lundgren, Andy Garcia, Randy Couture and Uko Awais.
“This film is more violent than Will Smith at a comedy club, just saying,” joked Maniscalco earlier than introducing 50 Cent. “I love movies in theaters,” he stated. “This right here, this is about to be my movie. I’m taking over this franchise.”
The clip reel opened with Stallone’s character saying matter-of-factly, “This life, it’s not for everyone.” Then got here details in regards to the franchise in that greater than 500,000 rounds of ammunition have been used and greater than 7,000 useless our bodies piled up over the previous three installments. “It was all a warmup for this,” teased the reel.
More to return.
