"I’ve gone through several hours of 'Ishtar' training to prepare me for this marathon," says Fandango editor and "100 Days of Summer" blogger Chuck Walton, on his quest to see a new film at new theaters every day for 100 consecutive days
Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) May 12, 2010
It’s a tough job, but somebody has to do it.
Chuck Walton, managing editor at Fandango, the nation's leading moviegoer destination, has set out on a quest to find the ultimate summer moviegoing experience, and blog about it at http://www.fandango.com/100days.
Chuck will spend his endless summer traveling the country from Anchorage, Alaska to Wesley Chapel, Florida, seeking a new movie each day at mainstream theaters, outdoor venues, museums, universities, film festivals, piers, cemeteries, and other unique environments for 100 consecutive days.
Movies on DVD won’t cut it, as all movies must be seen on the big screen, and at a broad variety of theaters across the nation.
An avid surfer from Hawaii who often spends his free time searching for the perfect wave, Chuck has lived in L.A. for the past two decades -- and he'll now start spending a lot more of his free time in the dark.
“It’s like running in a marathon,” says Fandango editor Chuck Walton, “and I’ve been doing a whopping five squats a day, conditioning my rear end for sitting through two hundred hours worth of summer movies and trailers. But then again, I am a glutton for movie punishment. I just lost 35 pounds since January, and it will be interesting to see what kind of balance 100 days of movie nachos could offer. Besides, I’ve gone through several hours of “Ishtar” training to prepare me to sit through any movie that comes my way.”
The “100 Days of Summer” movies blog is part of the Fandango Summer Movie Guide, which also includes a weekly calendar, polls, top lists (including "The Top 35 Summer Movies of the Last 35 Years” and “Top Family Movies” ), plus movie-related sweepstakes and is available at http://www.fandango.com/movieguide/summermovies.
One of the Web’s top movie and entertainment destinations, Fandango sells tickets to more than 16,000 screens. Fandango entertains and informs consumers with reviews, commentary and trailers, and offers the ability to quickly select a film, plan where and when to see it, and conveniently buy tickets in advance. Fandango is available at http://www.fandango.com, 1-800-FANDANGO and via your wireless mobile device at mobile.fandango.com. Fandango is a unit of Comcast Interactive Media.
