After the release of the highly-anticipated first trailer for Channing Tatum's upcoming historical drama 'Public Enemies' last month, it's been kind of quiet, but I now have some premiere news and a new international trailer for you all.
First of all, the premiere for 'Public Enemies' will be held on June 23, 2009 in Los Angeles, California at the Mann Village Theatre Westwood.
For those fans who aren't lucky enough to live in the LA area, the Wisconsin Film Commission will also be holding screenings and parties prior to the release of the film. Although they have not confirmed if the cast or director will be attending, fans will be able watch the film a day early and in style...
JSOnline.com is reporting that 'Public Enemies' will return to the scene of the crime for screenings and parties across Wisconsin on June 30, 2009.
The events, to be held the day before the film opens nationwide, were announced by Scott Robbe, executive director of Film Wisconsin, the group that functions as the state's film commission.
The screening events will have a 1930s theme, and a party will be held at the Milwaukee County Historical Society Museum, 910 N. Old World 3rd St., which was one of the locations for the filming. A screening will follow at Marcus Majestic Cinema, 770 Springdale Road, Brookfield, with proceeds benefiting the museum.
A Madison screening will be held at the Marcus Point Cinema; the location of the Madison party is yet to be determined. In Oshkosh, the party will take place at Wittman Field, which was a location in the filming, and will feature cars and planes used in the film. The film will be shown on two screens at Marcus Oshkosh Cinemas, benefiting the Oshkosh Facade Program for preservation of historic areas in the city, where filming took place.
Film tickets will be $50 for VIP seating and $25 for general seating. Separate party tickets are required, and information on how to obtain tickets will be announced closer to the events. All three events also will benefit Film Wisconsin.
Based on the New York Times Best Selling author Bryan Burrough's true crime book, 'Public Enemies' follows the FBI hunt for 1930's gangster John Dillinger.
The Universal Studios film is directed by Michael Mann and boasts a stunning cast that includes Channing Tatum, Johnny Depp, Marion Cotillard, Christian Bale, Branka Katic, Billy Crudup, Giovanni Ribisi, Emilie de Ravin, John Michael Bolger, Stephen Dorff, Christian Stolte and Leelee Sobieski.
