ATOM TICKETS TEAMS UP WITH LIONSGATE ON EXCLUSIVE

‘MORPHIN MONDAYS’ PROGRAM FOR “SABAN’S POWER RANGERS” MOVIE

 

Fans will receive exclusive content, movie ticket deals and social giveaways each Monday prior to film’s March 24 release. Advance tickets for “Saban’s Power Rangers” on sale today

LOS ANGELES and SANTA MONICA, CA, March 6, 2017 – Advance tickets for “Saban’s Power Rangers” go on sale today and Atom Tickets, the first-of-its-kind theatrical mobile ticketing platform, has partnered with global content leader Lionsgate (NYSE: LGF.A, LGF.B) to launch “Morphin Mondays” in support of the highly anticipated film, which debuts in theaters nationwide on March 24, 2017. The “Morphin Mondays” promotion includes exclusive content and deals each Monday leading up to the film’s release—March 6, March 13 and March 20.

Starting today, Atom users have the chance to purchase their ticket for “Saban’s Power Rangers” for just $5 when they invite five friends to see the movie with them via the Atom Tickets app. The program plays off the team of five Power Rangers and takes advantage of the app’s integrated social experience that allows users to invite friends to a movie without paying for them. Each person invited has the opportunity to get their own $5 ticket by inviting five other friends to join the group, further fueling the program’s virality.

“Atom is the only ticketing app that focuses on movies as a group experience,” said Matthew Bakal, executive chairman and co-founder of Atom Tickets. “Pairing the social appeal of Power Rangers with our app’s proprietary invite technology, ‘Morphin Mondays’ encourages users to plan a night out with their friends to see this entertaining new film and taps into the audience’s desire for shared experiences.”

In addition to Morphin Mondays, today Atom unveiled an exclusive Power Rangers movie poster that can only be seen on the Atom platform. A few lucky fans will receive the exclusive poster signed by the cast via social media giveaways.

Directed by Dean Israelite, the film stars Dacre Montgomery, Naomi Scott, RJ Cyler, Becky G and Ludi Lin as the Power Rangers and also features Bill Hader, Bryan Cranston and Elizabeth Banks. The movie follows five ordinary teens who must become something extraordinary when they learn that their small town of Angel Grove—and the world—is on the verge of being obliterated by an alien threat.  Chosen by destiny, our heroes quickly discover they are the only ones who can save the planet. But to do so, they will have to overcome their real-life issues and before it’s too late, and band together as the Power Rangers.

Atom Tickets is a game-changing mobile app and website that is revolutionizing the movie ticketing industry to make movie experiences faster, easier and more social than ever. Atom lets users pre-order movie tickets and concessions and provides a VIP experience that includes bypassing lines at theaters. The user-friendly platform also lets moviegoers watch trailers, read reviews and coordinate movie outings with friends while allowing each person to pay separately with just a few simple taps.

How Atom Tickets Works:
Atom Tickets re-imagines the most convenient way for users to plan a night out at the movies. The free app and website provide relevant reviews, trailers and synopses to help customers make the best decision on what to see. Moviegoers may then invite friends (via Facebook or their contact lists) to purchase their own tickets to join them. Atom offers streamlined ordering of tickets and concessions from any Android or iOS phone. At the theater, users go directly to the ushers and concession counters, where they simply scan a QR code at tablet kiosks. Paper tickets and IOUs have been replaced by Atom’s innovative platform, which keeps all plans, messaging, payment and tickets in one place.

Punisher, Star Wars, Free Comics & More!

By: Mark Patton

One batch, two batch, penny, and dime!

The-punisherThe Punisher is set to become another Netflix Original and will have his own series coming soon! Now I spoke about Jon Bernthal’s contract a few months ago, as a source I have told me some very new, very private information. Now I can proudly stand up and say that the scoop I gave GeekNerdNet.com from my source was pretty much right on, and it feels good. I’m 1/1 on Marvel scoops and may very well stop there, being 100% is a nice feeling. Now I was told a “Marvel film” was a possibility and he also signed for two “TV shows” mind you in this day and age Netflix accounts for TV so there we go, now if he appears in a movie I’d be over the top on that, but how many street level characters are we going to see in the big boy films? I’m happy Bernthal/The Punisher just received a Netflix Original season, it definitely shows how ridiculously popular the character was, and the sympathy we all felt for a man who was basically broken makes for better watching in my humble opinion.

This one is a short fun blurb if you didn’t know, have hidden under a rock, or don’t
know what Dimay4sney is, next week is Star Wars Day also known as May the 4th is next week! Wednesday to be exact, so pull out your Vader or Kylo helmet, your Wookiee shirt, or anything else from that “Galaxy Far Far Away” and enjoy a nice fun day!

It seems this next week is riddled with fun times because on May 6th Captain America: Civil War is out in theaters and I don’t know about you, but I feel like I would have seen half the movie with the 30 plus TV spots Marvel has put out, maybe slow it down there guys. Civil_War_Final_PosterYou already have the fan base, you don’t need to force a movie everyone has been waiting for down our throats. All-in-all though I’m excited for it and will definitely see it more than once, because although I love DC I also Love Marvel, blasphemy you say? I say you’re foolish if you have to separate them, or pit one against another, they both can be great all on their own. I am looking forward to the deeper introductions into the Scarlet Witch and Vision, as well as the evolution of the Falcon. Bringing in Ant-Man for a little light heartedness, and Black Panther for another twist and agenda is always interesting. With so many characters and the return of Spider-Man to his roots in Marvel I am excited to see how they use him, and how much of a part he plays in the whole movie. From what I have seen there is so much going on it’ll be a little bit squished in there, but if they learned anything from doing too much with Age of Ultron I feel they will be in safe hands and do a great job. Early reports have it being a fantastic time and a movie you’ll definitely want to see.
