Fandango, the nation’s leading digital destination for moviegoers with 36 million unique visitors per month, announced today the May 6 launch of “We Love Movies,” celebrating the joys of moviegoing. The summer-long program will feature celebrity events, VIP movie screenings, summer festival sponsorships, social media, and television advertising. Fandango will also be giving away a year’s worth of free movie tickets, every day throughout the summer as part of a “We Love Movies” sweepstakes.
Headlining the campaign is an original video series, “I Love Movies,” airing across Fandango’s digital network, including Fandango Movieclips on YouTube, and Fandango channels on Hulu, Roku and Samsung’s Milk Video Service. “I Love Movies” features candid interviews with notable cultural influencers outside the film industry including athletes, musicians, television personalities, innovators and others, all sharing meaningful movie memories from films including “The Sound of Music,” “Rocky,” “Finding Nemo,” “The Spy Who Loved Me,” “The Naked Gun,” “Purple Rain,” “National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation” and many more.
The show’s first guests will include NBA All-Star Dwight Howard, Grammy Award winner Reba McEntire, skateboarding icon and X Games gold medalist Tony Hawk, five-time heavyweight champion Evander Holyfield, award-winning TV host Larry King, rock legend Slash, TV personality Shaun Robinson, country music artist Darius Rucker and others throughout the summer.
“Summer 2015 is shaping up to be one of biggest and best summer movie seasons ever and our ‘We Love Movies’ campaign will leverage every property and partner platform across our network to ignite consumer excitement around moviegoing and drive theater attendance,” said Paul Yanover, Fandango President. “We’re especially proud of our new show, ‘I Love Movies,’ which will shine a spotlight on favorite movie moments from some of the world’s most interesting people.”
“I Love Movies” will be Fandango’s fifth original video series and is a part of the company’s larger goal of delivering a complete moviegoing experience from movie information, trailers and content to showtimes and ticketing to social sharing around movie fandom.
