'Focus Movie Mondays' Watch Focus Features Hits From The Comfort Of Your Home

See Rocketman Early

Fandango, the leading digital network for all things movies, is teaming up with Paramount Pictures to offer exclusive early access screenings on May 18 of "Rocketman,” the musical fantasy about the life of Elton John, directed by Dexter Fletcher, written by Lee Hall and starring Taron Egerton, Jamie Bell, Richard Madden and Bryce Dallas Howard. Tickets for this limited engagement go on sale today, exclusive to Fandango.

Nearly two weeks before the film's May 31 U.S. theatrical release date and just days following its premiere at the Cannes Film Festival, fans and members of Fandango VIP, Fandango's free-to-join rewards program, can get a first look at the film at nearly 400 theaters nationwide. Participating theatre chains include AMC Theatres, Regal, Cinemark, Marcus Theatres, Arclight Cinemas/Pacific Theatres, Harkins Theatres, National Amusements, and many more.

Fandango’s Early Access Screening program is part of the company’s ongoing commitment to eventizing movies and delivering unparalleled movie going experiences to fans. Fandango has a long tradition of working with studios and filmmakers on programs to surprise and delight moviegoers, and this is the third of multiple advance screenings that Fandango has planned for 2019. In February, Fandango offered Early Access Screenings for DreamWorks Animation’s “How to Train Your Dragon: The Hidden World” and, in March, for Warner Bros. Pictures’ “Shazam!”

"We’re proud to team up with Paramount Pictures to host Early Access Screenings for ‘Rocketman,’" says Fandango President Paul Yanover. "Our first two Early Access Screenings generated great buzz for ‘How to Train Your Dragon: The Hidden World’ and ‘Shazam!’ We think Fandango VIP members and fans will be delighted to have the opportunity to see this highly-anticipated Elton John musical fantasy two weeks before its release date.”

Tickets for the film’s May 31 wide release also go on sale today.

Sex Tape Review: Overly Sexual, Rude, Vulgar, and Absolutely Hilarious

The raunchy Sex Tape will divide audiences and critics, but who cares? Sex Tape suggests a growing practice among loving partners: that of making a raunchy testament of their escapades for posterity. But what happens when that evidence gets seen by friends, neighbors, and even the mailman? This is the plot that pits Jay (Jason Segel) and Annie (Cameron Diaz) in an effort to secure every iPad gift Jay has given, his record company playlists being the envy of the recipients, but which has also inadvertently spread the video to every device. The reason for the act - termed in the movie as pulling "the full Lincoln" for its three-hour length - stems from the couple's non-existent social life, brought on by the constant demands of their children. The couple has a lot to lose: a burgeoning business relationship between Annie and Hank (Rob Lowe) could end if the iPad she's given to Hank exposes the video, and so the couple sets out to reclaim and wipe the incriminating …
