How Master P Used Social Media To Make And Market ‘I Got The Hook-Up 2’
When Master P decided to make I Got the Hook-Up 2, studios didn’t exactly jump at the chance to finance a sequel to an urban comedy that grossed $10 million at the box office in 1998. The rap mogul wasn’t deterred, though, and instead put up his own money to produce the film, and tapped into the power of social media to fill the cast and market it.

“The studios are not going to let us in,” Master P, real name Percy Miller, told Deadline this week. “They don’t understand that it’s a market for urban movies, urban comedies, all of that.”

Bob Johnson’s Urban Movie Channel in partnership with Rlje Films released I Got The Hook-Up 2 in theaters and VOD on July 12.

The sequel, directed by Corey Grant, grossed $149,036 from 37 theaters its opening weekend, a per-screen average of $4,028.

The film is currently number 31 on the domestic iTunes movie chart,

Stunning ‘The Farewell’ Delivers the Top Specialized Opener of 2019

Stunning ‘The Farewell’ Delivers the Top Specialized Opener of 2019
In mid-summer, 2019 finally delivered a breakout specialized hit. Lulu Wang’s Sundance breakout “The Farewell” (A24), which is neither a documentary nor a wide release, drew a stellar response from arthouse moviegoers. Produced in America and set in China, this family dramedy marks one of the best platform openings ever for a film outside the year-end awards season. That the movie comes from a little-known director makes its initial response all the more gratifying. The standard arthouse release formula can still work.

Bleecker Street also scored better than average initial results for “The Art of Self Defense” with an eclectic set of initial theaters. A24 is on a roll, as “The Farewell” joins the still-limited “The Last Black Man in San Francisco” (A24) in fighting to keep the specialized narrative brand alive.

Opening

The Farewell (A24) – Metacritic: 89; Festivals include: Sundance, San Francisco 2019

$351,330 in 4 theaters; PTA (per theater average): $87,833

This ‘Dancing with the Stars’ alum’s daughter ‘would love’ to do the show too

This ‘Dancing with the Stars’ alum’s daughter ‘would love’ to do the show too
Candace Cameron Bure‘s daughter Natasha Bure is following in her mother’s footsteps into acting, but the 20-year-old hopes to mimic her mother in another way as well: She wants to go on “Dancing with the Stars.”

“I would love to do ‘Dancing with the Stars.’ I think it would be the coolest thing. I’m so competitive,” Natasha told “Entertainment Tonight” (watch below).

Candace was on Season 18, coming in third place with Mark Ballas, so Natasha will have her work cut out for her if she wants to best her mother’s finish.

If Natasha does go on “Dancing,” it wouldn’t be the first time a parent and child have competed on the show — all on different seasons. Master P replaced his son Romeo in Season 2 after the latter withdrew due to injury and infamously scored an 8 before finishing in seventh place. Romeo later competed in Season 12, placing fifth.
