How eager are you to see “World War Z”? Does June 21st just sound too long to wait? If you’re desperate to scratch that zombie itch and have $50 burning in your pocket, there’s a solution for you.
Paramount Pictures is partnering up with Regal Entertainment Group to create an unheard of package for die hard movie goers. For a cool $50, fans will get one ticket to see “World War Z” in 3D two days earlier on June 19th. They will also get a pair of collector 3D glasses, a limited-edition movie poster, and one small popcorn. However, the most interesting item in the package will be an HD digital copy of the movie that’ll become available for download or streaming when the film hits its street date. In all, it’s a package worth over $75 in value. A bargain if you’re a fan of the undead or Brad Pitt’s dazzling golden locks.
There’s just one small catch, the offer is only available in five cities within the U.S.:
Houston, TX-Edwards Greenway Grand Palace Stadium 24 & RPX
Los Angeles, CA- Edwards Irvine Spectrum 21 & IMAX
Atlanta, GA- Regal Atlanta Station Stadium 16
Philadelphia, PA- UA King of Prussia Stadium 16 & IMAX
San Diego, CA- Edwards Mira Mesa Stadium 18
If you don’t live near those areas or just don’t feel like paying a special price, you could always wait till June 21st when the movie opens wide in regular theaters. So good deal? Bad deal? Is this what Spielberg was talking about when he predicted jacked up movie ticket prices?
