Bugs and the gang are hitting the big screen tomorrow and yours truly and his daughter will be checking it out this weekend.
Since Six Flags utilizes the LT characters and I noticed that SFGAm was selling T-Shirts during Fright Fest of this new movie, wouldn't it be a great money making move next season for the SF parks to sell mass merchandise of this movie? This is of course that the movie does well which I am sure it will.
Also, alot of movies come out on DVD about 6 months after being in the theatres. Thats right around the time that the 2004 season kicks off for parks. Maybe SF should take a page out of Paramount's book and possibly create shows and rides geared around this movie.
What have they got to lose? They can only go uphill from here. :) *** Edited 11/14/2003 4:17:50 AM UTC by Chitown***
This movie needs to be better than Space Jam. I am a classic LT fan and am very unexcited by the previews. Of course, I hate Brendan Frasier so that my have something to do with it. Of course, I suppose that the movie's success with kids would determine how successful such a move at Six Flags would be.
I am guessing that Looney Tunes Back In Action will be not as good as Who Framed Roger Rabbit but has to be better than Space Jam. Is it too much to hope that Pete Puma is in the new movie? "I want a lotta lumps... a whole lotta lumps...eeeeehhhhhhh"
Its good to be a mod. I laugh at this topic because eventhough it has to with rides, Its very little. Why don't they make a ride out of Seabiscut at Universal Studios, they got really nothing to lose. Make every movie warner brothers makes a movie. Its okay to have this topic, your a mod, but you get picture, don't you?
Ohhh, so a thread on the other major new film this week, Master and Commander starring Russell Crowe, would be perfectly fine to start since its director, Peter Weir, also directed Dead Poets Society starring Robin Williams who was also the star of Death to Smoochy which featured a scene at Coney Island with the Cyclone in the background? And I could have made that even simpler, but don't get me started on the amusement park connection to Tupac: Resurrection and Love Actually. ;)
Just kidding Chitown. I'm glad the movie was good and I think this is easily free advertisement for their parks with the Looney Tunes characters. More important to Warner Bros. was selling their Looney Tunes Golden Collection DVD set at the same time this movie was being released.
And Koaster King was joking with the long stretch of a connection. ;)
Seriously though, its the offseason, and I thought it would make some conversation. When you go to an SF park, you are swarmed with the likes of Bugs, Daffy, etc. They are now on the big screen again so its a perfect way for SF to try and generate some money from it.
Like I said in my original post, they were selling T-Shirts at SFGAm for this movie.
The movie had some scenes in Las Vegas which briefly showed one of Vegas's coasters. See?? The connection gets better. :)
I think it's perfectly fine. I've learned to master the art of being completely on-topic while having a dash of off-topic charm... like everyone had the experience of reading above. Oh, and a Looney Tunes dark ride would be one to rule them all (right after a LOTR one). :)
Im sorry. I was never trying to criticize this topic, What I wrote may seem like I was serious, but I was not. Eventhough, I still it is funny because it is a off season topic. My other topic is not gleaming with coaster riding but it has more solitude then this topic, but then again im looking for more fact then opinion. It more has to do with coasters because of the vegas coaster. What coaster was it? *** Edited 11/16/2003 5:33:48 AM UTC by WILLDOG***
C'mon, Playa, we *know* you can afford to score a point or two.....;)
Tina, Taz already has his fair share of rides, and they have better names than TD:TR...;) Actually, I'm just biased against spinning rides, and Taz does WAY more than enough spinning to make me queasy...
bill, just another toon, can NOT resist the "shave and a haircut" knock...:)
Predictions for weekend box office show LT:BIA at around $9 million, about a third of the opening weekend Space Jam had in 1996. That's not good compared to Disney's Brother Bear either, which has been running four weeks and had higher figures this weekend. Another family film, Elf, looks like the winner this weekend with Master and Commander in second and The Matrix falling a huge percentage to third. Not wonderful news for Warner Bros. at all.
