Life in a Day and Ridley Scott's Micro Movie Mogul Initiative Raise Money for Charities

Thompson on Hollywood By Sophia Savage | Thompson on Hollywood June 8, 2011 at 6:40AM

Ridley Scott invites the public to aid in promoting the UK theatrical release of Life in a Day on June 17 (it opens in the US June 29), and by doing so raise money for UK charities, all through the Micro Movie Moguls initiative. This is how it works: An individual or company sets themselves up as a Micro Mogul and they chose a charity -- any good cause -- to receive 25% of the tickets sold through their online ticket booth. Here's more information. Here is our review and the Life in a Day trailer. This movie is a must-see.
