All Star Weekend – media roundup 2018-2019

August 6, 2018 from The Hollywood Reporter
Jamie Foxx on Directorial Debut, LeBron-Curry Rivalry

“Comedy, right now, needs a movie like ‘All-Star Weekend,'” the actor said of his sports film about two superfans (one of Curry, the other James) who sneak into the All-Star game.
The LeBron James-Steph Curry rivalry is always newsworthy, but is even more pronounced now that the former has joined the latter in NBA’s Western Conference (and the same state) by signing with the L.A. Lakers in a four-year deal. Jamie Foxx didn’t need any prodding to comment on sports’ biggest story because he’s been on a deep dive into that world via his directorial debut All-Star Weekend.

The film, readying for release in 2019, is a buddy rivalry comedy about two guys — one is a Curry superfan and the other loves James — who travel from Indiana to Los Angeles in the hope that they can get into the NBA All-Star game. “It’s so relevant right now,” Foxx, who wrote, directed and stars in the film, tells THR during a sit-down on the set of his Grey Goose digital talk show Off Script. “Comedy, right now, needs a movie like All-Star Weekend and something you haven’t seen before.”

All the actors, however, are more than just recognizable.

“We have Jeremy Piven, Robert Downey Jr., Benicio Del Toro, Gerard Butler, Eva Longoria, Floyd Mayweather, the Game, French Montana, DJ Khaled. I mean, I called all of my friends for a favor and they came. Having the leisure of having great actors and actresses is everything. If Robert Downey Jr. is there, if Benicio Del Toro is there, all you gotta do is just steady the camera,” Foxx says, adding a few more names to the list of people he leaned on for inspiration. “I sat on the shoulders of some of the greatest directors of the world from Oliver Stone to Michael Mann to Antoine Fuqua to Taylor Hackford, Quentin Tarantino. So I basically learned what it is that I want.”

Although he’s still editing (and meeting with distributors), Foxx says he’s ready to do it all over again and take another spin in the director’s chair sometime soon. “I definitely wanna do that. I have a couple of tricks up my sleeve.”

The film is due out the end of 2019

Gerard Butler has so much love for ‘incredible’ Jamie Foxx and it’s bromance goals
Becozy fell under Gerry’s spell when she watched Phantom of The Opera for the first time in May 2005, while recovering from knee surgery. She was smitten with the Phantom from the moment his face appeared in the mirror, falling in love during the Music of the Night. After searching the internet for information about the actor able to cast such a spell, she discovered Gerard Butler. Her life, and that of her family, hasn’t been the same since. With Gerry as a common bond, becozy has an expanding world of cyber and real friends.  Her family has greeted her new found ‘hobby’ with enthusiasm and her new friends with a warm welcome. Happily, her husband and two (now adult) children share her admiration of Gerry. Her family knows and understands all Gerry references in their correct context. Mention 3AM, camels, or yellow towels, for example and you’ll get a knowing nod! Over ten years later, as much time as possible each day is spent in the care and nurturing of her Addiction. It is a delicate balancing act to fulfill her duties as wife and mom and her duties as a GAL, but one she is determined to master.
