See “Where the Crawdads Sing” Early & For Free (Reserved Seats)

If you’re a fan of the 2018 novel Where the Crawdads Sing, you were probably thrilled to learn that Reese Witherspoon’s production company was bringing it to the big screen. Covid threatened to sideline production but the film adaptation (starring Daisy Edgar-Jones) finally hits theaters July 15th. Even better, I have 5 pairs of passes to see it EARLY and FOR FREE on July 13th! These are reserved seats, meaning you won’t have to get there early and wait in line, so they will go quickly! Simply tell me who wrote Where the Crawdads Sing in the “Comments” below. The first 5 who answer correctly will score the tickets. Good luck everyone! Take a minute to watch the Where the Crawdads Sing trailer below and to hear Taylor Swift’s Carolina, which she wrote just for the film.

See “Fresh” Early, For Free & FROM HOME

Fresh looks like it’s going to be a delicious rom-com starring Daisy Edgar-Jones and Sebastian Stan, and it IS for a hot minute. It takes a twisty turn though and becomes a dark look at modern dating. This new one from Hulu (streaming March 4th) won’t appeal to all tastes but, if the current state of affairs has left you feeling a little dark and twisty yourself, Fresh might be right up your dimly-lit alley. Click HERE for a link to an early, virtual screening and then spend a minute with the trailer below. Oh yeah, that is messed up.
