Seattle fans, join us tonight for the opening of "Logan Lucky." The movie looks awesome. The New York Times and Rolling Stone are raving about it, and it scored 93% on Rotten Tomatoes. It will be a massive, hilarious summer hit -- sort of a cross between "Ocean's 11" and "Smokey and the Bandit."
The movie uses Fantasy Football Index as a prop when Jimmy Logan (played by Channing Tatum) is fired from his job by Jim O'Heir (who played Jerry in "Parks and Recreation"). The bossman has two copies of last year's LeVeon Bell edition on his desk. We haven't seen the film yet, but we're hoping the magazine is used to make him look like a lazy slacker. (Maybe you even know a boss who's studying for his fantasy draft at work, right this minute.)
The Fantasy Index crew is coming 20-strong to the 7:10 p.m. show at Thornton Place at Northgate. If you'd like to come along, please send an e-mail message to firstname.lastname@example.org. The Fantasy Index crew will meet at a nearby bar before the show, and you're welcome to join us.
The cast is killer. We can't wait to see Daniel Craig (Bond, James Bond) as a peroxide-blonde hillbilly bank bomber. Adam Driver, Katie Holmes, Riley Keough, Seth MacFarlane, Hillary Swank -- now that's a cast.
Last fall we were asked to sign a release for publicity for the movie. Despite knowing very little about it, we figured what the heck, and we signed. We had no idea the movie would turn out to be awesome, and we can't wait to see it tonight,
