Tower Heist LSU connection?

So I walk into the den and m wife is watching Tower Heist. They are stealing the car during the Thanksgiving Day Parade and I'm pretty sure the marching band is playing the LSU fight song.
Anyone else catch this?

I know csb. Just thought is should share.

re: Tower Heist LSU connection?
there was a huge problem when they were releasing the movie, they wanted to release it on demand the same day as it was in theaters and the production company said no... big fight ensued and everyone basically lost money


quote:

Universal's failed attempt to pioneer early video-on-demand with its film "Tower Heist" last fall resulted from a "communication problem" between the studio and theater owners, according to Universal Studios President Ron Meyer.

Speaking Friday at a conference at UCLA's Anderson School of Business, Meyer said his company believed theater operators would be on board as it prepared to offer the Eddie Murphy comedy "Tower Heist" via VOD for $59.99 in two test markets three weeks after its theatrical release last November.

"We believed the theater owners would be supporting [us]," Meyer said to an audience of students and guests. "I can only say it was a communication problem taking place because there's a certain 'Rashomon' as to whether they agreed or didn't agree and what we agreed on."

Universal executives had believed cinema owners would accept the so-called "premium VOD" effort — which they have previously opposed for fear it would discourage theater attendance — because it was limited to about 500,000 people. But major chains including Regal Entertainment, Cinemark USA and National Amusements vowed not to play the film anywhere in the country unless the studio gave up its experiment.

Universal has no specific plans to try an early VOD release anytime soon, Meyer said, but the issue is far from dead. "Certainly it's going to be tried again ... there's no question about it," he said. "It may not be tomorrow, but it will be someday."

Meyer also spoke briefly about Universal's previously announced plans to add a Wizarding World of Harry Potter — already a huge hit at Universal's Orlando resort — to his company's theme park in Los Angeles. For the first time, he estimated when it might launch, saying "I hope it won't be much more than three years."

I didn't really enjoy it. I caught the last 15-20 minutes and it was I'm no way funny. Just pretty cool to hear the fight song in it.

How much does a family of 5 pay at the theater? It might not be $60, but it's close. So you're essentially paying the difference for the convenience of watching it at home.

Last nights movie "expenditure":

Tickets:
Me and the wife $24
Off-spring and niece $20
Snacks:
One number 2 combo $15(2 large drinks and 1 large popcorn)
$11 for 2 small mixed Icees, 2 small popcorn, 1 shared bag of peanut M&Ms.

So to sit back in my big ole comfy chair watching a first run movie on the 60" and eat up some of the Wife's brownies and some Orville Redenbacher and not having to listen to the lady behind me type her phone the whole time doesn't make $60 sound so outrageous.
