Theatre to premiere comedy filmBy Katie Shepherd | 09/23/2014 10:27pm
“The film is about a heart-broken college student who is dragged through an unorthodox ‘mantervention’ to get him over the ex and onto the next,” said Brendan Gill, public relations representative from Scatena & Rosner Films, which is sponsoring the event.
SNR Films will be giving away more than 500 tickets for the premiere. Gato Scatena, producer of “Mantervention,” said they chose to premiere the film in Tuscaloosa because it is perfect for college students.
“It’s very clearly a college comedy,” Scatena said. “So we need to get it in front of its target demographic.”
Gill said the movie is sure to be a hit among UA students.
“It’s a really funny movie that’s been getting great reviews,” Gill said. “So with school back in session, we thought it’d be the perfect time to reach out to the exact same audience this movie was made for.”
“Mantervention,” which was written by Juan Gallego, a full-time emergency room physician, is a perfect film to see in the theater with friends, Scatena said.
He said the movie was tailored to cause lots of laughs among college students.
