Wednesday, June 2, 2010 Hollywood Splice

Premiere of Splice at Grauman's Chinese Theater, Wednesday, June 2, 2010

Another Major Motion Picture Premiere at Grauman's Chinese Theater up on the boulevard, something they've been doing there since May 18, 1927, with the premiere of Cecil B. DeMille's The King of Kings, when the films were black-and-white and silent. This time the film is Splice straight from the Sitges Film Festival in 2009 and then the 2010 Sundance Film Festival, and then the bidding wars Weinstein Company versus Newmarket Films versus First Look Studios versus Samuel Goldwyn Films and the winner, in February 2010, was Dark Castle Entertainment via Warner Brothers. Warner Brothers scheduled it for wide release in the United States on June 4 you go wide on the first big weekend of the summer. That's where the money is. And you have your big premiere two days earlier at the Chinese, for the buzz. Just another day in Hollywood
