GAL APPROVED Wkd! Draft Day, Great Sound and Your Own Home TheatersBy Delaina Dixon | April 11, 2014 | Gal Approved
SEE. At the VIP screening of Draft Day, hosted by NFL Giant Mario Manningham, TV DivaGal got schooled in how NFL players get on their teams. Kevin Costner stars as Sonny Weaver Jr., general manager of the Cleveland Browns who desperately needs to pick a winning lineup. There are lots of things to consider, like star players who are coming back from injuries, trades from other teams that look great on paper but have secrets underneath, and a star in-the-making, if you can forgive his criminal ways. Lots of cool stars pop up in this film, including Chi McBride, Terry Crews and Sean “Diddy” Combs. Great way to learn why you man goes a little cray cray right before the NFL draft! Opens nationwide today.
SCREEN. Prima Cinema is the first and only service in the nation to provide at-home access to first-run theatrical films starring Hollywood’s biggest names on opening weekend for those with screening rooms. Two million households in the U.S. already have professional screening rooms, and this number is expected to increase. You can watch the latest theatrical releases on opening weekends within the comfort of your own screening room.
