Reuters: “Batten down the hatches — the hipsters are coming”

Reuters has posted an article broadly about the indie movie industry including some of the marketing behind 500 Days of Summer.

“This movie [500 Days of Summer] is particularly challenging to put forward in a 30-second spot or even a two-minute trailer,” says Fox Searchlight president Nancy Utley.

The specialty division has thus staged a remarkably prolific screening campaign. Since its Sundance premiere, the movie has traveled to 28 festivals and played 215 word-of-mouth screenings. Searchlight also staged a six-city June 21 giveaway of food and other merchandise at retailers, watching as Twitter and Facebook fueled the events’ popularity.

Marc Webb’s Guest Blogging; Got Questions?

Marc Webb will be guest blogging on FirstShowing.net for the next few weeks up until the release of 500 Days of Summer. He made his first post today:

These were the very first virgin eyes to check out our flick. And when we got our numbers back we were right – women liked 500 Days of Summer. It’s a romantic comedy. No big surprise. But there was something else.

The dudes liked it too.

Not only did the dudes like it. The dudes liked it MORE than the women. The numbers for the women were great but the numbers for the guys were off the charts. They were on par with some very successful male driven action fare and hard edged comedies. For a romantic comedy? A romcom? What the fuck?

Yep, Marc Webb is awesome and you should expect all his blog posts to be just as entertaining as this one. By the way, he is also taking any questions and ideas for subjects. Send an email to Alex at FirstShowing.net and he’ll pass them on to Marc.

I’ll be sure to update you here whenever Marc makes a post but FirstShowing.net is a fantastic site about new movies you might want to check out if you don’t already.

One last thing: Reading Marc’s post got me even more pumped about 500 Days of Summer and it should do the same for you: we are lucky enough to be following this unbelievably good, upcoming film but surprisingly a lot of people still don’t know about it! Be sure to share your love and links you find entertaining to get more people interested in the film–there are buttons on this site to make it easy to share on Facebook and Twitter. Let’s make sure 500 Days of Summer doesn’t go unnoticed when it is released July 17th!
