Plenty of people harrumphed Wednesday when George Lucas told a crowd that “going to the movies will cost 50 bucks or 100 or 150 bucks” in the future. Well, one day later that has become a reality. Well, sort of. Paramount said Thursday that it will offer the film world’s first “mega ticket” for an advance screening of the Brad Pitt zombie actioner World War Z in five Regal theaters around the US. For $50 — that’s a $75 value, mind you — a moviegoer with said golden ticket from Fandango gets admission to the June 19 3D showing of the flick, a download or stream of the film when it’s released on home video, custom 3D glasses, a limited-edition official movie poster and a small popcorn. (What, no soda?) The offer is good at megaplexes in Irvine, San Diego, Houston, Atlanta and Philadelphia. Maybe it’d be wise to invest that $50 in some serious running shoes in case those mega-speedy WWZ zombies really do attack.
