Pics, Schedule, Chicago? Leno!!????!!!?!111, and finally Ben Sherwood :)  
Everybody has been wondering about Bradley's icon which is from this pic:



That's the best we've got of it cause it is from some weird fan photo collage on fb, though maybe it's really a Universal person messing with our heads (haven't they already done that enough?). This was also in the collage fwiw:





Chicago?

OK, this one is the least confirmed thing. PopSugar posted that Zac is throwing out the first pitch at a baseball game... a Cubs game. Of all things. So he might be going to Chicago too (lol your earlier discussion guys).

However, an editor for AV Club and NPR, who is apparently based in Chicago, posted to twitter that his one-on-one with Zac was cancelled so idk if that means Chicago is off or what happened?

The Cubs are at home July 15th through the 25th. Someone on twitter mentioned it was the 23rd but idk where they got it from and I didn't try that hard to find it... I figure someday maybe Universal will post about these things fans might like to know about on their Facebook. That way if it is televised maybe, you know, fans could, like, watch.

I suppose he could be throwing it at the Cubs at Dodgers game this weekend (which is nationally televised on ESPN) but that seems early? IDK, tbh everything is oddly placed date-wise (ie the premiere, see below) so who knows.

Also a number of early screenings are popping up: Tampa, Toronto, Sacramento, Dallas, Philadelphia, Chicago, Las Vegas

Contest for tickets to an early screening in Tampa, FL: creativeloafing.com (scroll down)
Contest for tickets to an early screening at AMC Yonge & Dundas in Toronto, ON: Liberty Group
Contest for tickets to an early screening in Sacramento, CA: buzzboSF twitter

And on ONTD, sapphire908 mentioned there is a screening in Dallas at the Angelika on Wednesday: "It starts at 7:30 but if you come at 6pm with college/highschool id you can get in for free." Though I also found there is a contest page here by Edge for Dallas so you may want to call the theater for details on the student=free thing :)

Edge also has pages set up for an early screening contests for Philadelphia, Chicago, and Las Vegas. I'm not that familiar with Edge (though I recall them from MAOW or 17 Again I think), but just throwing it all out there.

There was a different contest somewhere else for Salt Lake City, but I could not get the details to load past the Google search so that early screening (which was for July 27th) may be full already, idk. I'll keep watching though.

FWIW, related to the other Atlanta Meet and Greet Contest (which posted details on their facebook), the local Comcast OnDemand facebook posted details on their facebook too. I think you have to become fans of both and comment with them in your status to be entered to win.

In what constitutes another WTF from me, Zac is apparently scheduled for the Leno show on July 20th.

... July 20th

IDGI... putting him on their primary late night talk show ten days before the release.

On their own network, they don't even seem to give him and Charlie St. Cloud some help!

Not only that but wtf else does Leno have to show? Is Steve Carell going to come back three weeks after Despicable Me appearance for another shot for Dinner for Schmucks? TBH I can only guess (hope?) that Leno is on vacation but idek anymore.

The other wtf part of this Leno thing? That's the same day as the premiere. And as some of you know, Leno usually films around the same time as red carpets usually start. And Leno is on the Universal lot while the premiere is in Westwood (I believe at the Mann Village Theater). I suppose that isn't too far a distance if traffic isn't shit... but like 5-6pm on a weekday?

I'm sorry for the rant... I want to stay optimistic and believe the Universal is doing their best but wtf guys?

ETA: it sounds like they will be filming early that day at 2:30pm so at least now there is some breathing room on that side of things. I STILL don't get the July 20th. I guess we'll find that out someday (or never).

In other (thankfully more delightful) news, there is a new thing on charliestcloudfans.com - a (long) note from the original author Ben Sherwood. As encouragement for you to sign up, I am just posting a bit:

In candor, I never imagined Zac Efron in the role of Charlie. Wrecked by loss and grief, Charlie was a character who had wasted many years of his precious life. I always imagined Charlie as older and sadder. Thank goodness I’m not a movie producer. I salute Universal Pictures and the producers for realizing that Efron was a perfect choice. Young, dynamic, and charismatic, he embodies the promise of Charlie St. Cloud without the burden and loss. With Efron’s vibrant presence and performance, a sometimes weighty story feels more hopeful and uplifting. As I told Efron when we met in the cemetery in Vancouver, I’m delighted and very thankful that he took the part and filled it with vitality.

Ultimately, life is the theme that animates this book. How do we overcome grief and loss and make the most of our time on earth?


We'll post a bit more (I think, lol) on the fansite blog. And idk, after awhile we'll post the whole thing for anyone who is too lazy to sign up, lol.

Cady Thanks for keeping us Updated on The least news and things on Zac.
It's Audrey not Aubrey: Tizaudrey_za on July 10th, 2010 02:00 am (UTC)
I think the prominent part baseball plays in CStC makes sense that there might be some sort of possible MLB tie-in? I'm cool with or without.

Leno?


I will only be watching on YT and damn him for still conducting one of my favorite Zac interviews to date. (When he gifted him the autographed Barry Bonds baseball... my heart.)

i think it is mostly weird that it is the cubs and not like the red sox or something in LA. and weirder yet is there's a game between the angels and red sox in LA the week of the movie's release. so why chicago then? idek. i've given up trying to understand i guess.
It's Audrey not Aubreyaudrey_za on July 10th, 2010 02:03 am (UTC)
And why are they making screening tickets a contest? That seems kind of... mean? Odd? IDK the right word and I didn't click on any of the source links, but shouldn't it be more just a sign-up w/first come first serve basis? :/

The premiere is in Westwood?! Oh dear. :'(

EEP I <3 that first picture <3 That Atlanta contest is confusing...

I love how theirs a Tampa screening but not Orlando :(
bettybaby63bettybaby63 on July 10th, 2010 02:36 am (UTC)
oh lord, my head is spinning!!!

i saw something fleetingly earlier about the leno appearance, and didn't make the connect that it is scheduled for the same day as the premier???? how can that be?????

this seems so disorganized...i hope they know what they're doing.

but i absolutely love what ben wrote about zac <3

its wonderful to get the his perspective, and to learn his feelings about how the role was cast. although they've obviously changed his story, his optimism over what they've done, and more importantly, what zac has brought to the role makes me feel really hopeful about the adaptation <3

I'm really starting to debate whether making my way to the Mall of America is even worth it. I envision mass chaos. Kinda like this promo schedule, it seems. The Atlanta stop still has me shaking my head.

And yay for Leno possibly! The one where he was given the baseball is my all-time favorite Zac appearance
