Get Him to the Greek’ Free Pre-Screening

Ankur Chawla | Monday, April 26, 2010

With classes done for the semester, head over to the Cinemark 14 Thursday at 8 p.m for a free prescreening of Universal Pictures’ “Get Him to the Greek.”

Jonah Hill (“Superbad”) and Russell Brand (“Forgetting Sarah Marshall”) star in this summer comedy. Set to release in June, “Get Him to the Greek” looks like it will be one of the biggest blockbusters and funniest comedies of the year.

In the movie, Hill plays Aaron Green, an intern at a record company hired to accompany the extravagant British rock star named Aldous Snow, played by Brand. For those of you who saw “Forgetting Sarah Marshall,” Aldous Snow’s character is carried over from that movie, and if you remember his mantra — he is walking sex.

Aaron is given the career-making task of escorting Aldous to a concert at L.A.’s Greek Theatre. The British rocker is constantly sidetracked searching for the meaning of life. When he discovers his true love is in California, he devotes his time to getting her instead of the upcoming concert.

Aaron has to make his way through Vegas lap dances, London drug lords and New York City parties trying to get Aldous to the Greek Theatre.

Tickets are available at 119 Dillon Hall and at various campus giveaways.
This movie is sure to be a hit, and if you liked “Forgetting Sarah Marshall,” you are going to love “Get Him to the Greek.”
