I’ve seen Animal House two and a half times now at sneak previews with a real audience, and the reaction was great.
I’m not someone who could do ‘Superweib,’ even if you tell me that this director is another Lubitsch. I saw the preview, and I have to say that you’d need a squad of police officers to force me to see the whole thing.
Every year, the Friday before the new Saturday-morning shows would premiere, the networks would do this big preview special, and I was always glued to the TV. As horrible as they were, they were entertaining at the time. There was a lot of showmanship from the networks based around the new lineup.
It’s like real life: We don’t get a preview of what’s coming up, thank God, and we don’t build our own character from what we’re going to be informed with in the future.
In our age of Twitter and smartphones, there is no controlled release of a movie preview. The enigma of movie stars is lost.
I can never bring myself to watch Mahesh’s films. It’s way too stressful for me. All his family members are eager to attend and enjoy the previews of his films like normal people. But I sit at home chewing my nails, praying, wondering if this one will be as big as the previous one, and so on.
A first preview is not exactly a pleasant experience for directors and actors. You’re never as raw as when the audience first comes in.
I use Twitter mostly, and then whenever I just want to preview some new music that I record, I take to Snapchat or TikTok.
I love test screenings. Some directors don’t, I know. But I love it. I think it’s because I come from the theatre and in the theatre, previews are where you really have to listen to the audience and really feel how they’re responding. I found our test screenings incredibly useful.
In theatre, previews are the first draft of a show. I strongly believe that. The only way we can truly tell whether that draft works is by having an audience present.
There were no previews; we made the film we wanted to make.
I think it’s all right for an actor to appear on television as a guest maybe three or four times a year. Perhaps to preview a future movie or a play.
When I first started in the business, it was hardly ever done. But today, it almost feels like studios go out and preview movies knowing full well that they’re going to use the information they get to go back and reshoot.
I do this for the sake of myself. It’s a selfish process. I don’t really have any expectations from anyone for your comments or your reviews or your previews.
My grandmother was an unparalleled storyteller who gave me a preview of how life might turn out, and also fortified my empathy.
Wonderful things happened to me – I met my husband, I got invited to previews and premieres, I was asked to do fashion shoots and front covers of magazines. You’ve just got to embrace it and do the best you can.
Imagination is everything. It is the preview of life’s coming attractions.
I don’t know much about auctions. I sometimes go to previews and see art sardined into ugly rooms. I’ve gawked at the gaudy prices, and gaped at well-clad crowds of happy white people conspicuously spending hundreds of millions of dollars.
I love theatre. It’s far more satisfying than film. Sometimes there’s a collective sigh from the audience, or it’s so quiet you can hear a pin drop. I couldn’t believe how easy acting was when there’s an audience; after a few previews I almost couldn’t do it without one.
I went to the opening of ‘Sister Act,’ and I had such a great time. I had no idea what it was about, and I had never seen the movies. But I heard the show went through some major last-minute craziness in previews, and man, opening night was really fun and really entertaining.
I’m someone who started in the theater and really couldn’t stand repeating the show. My favorite part of acting is the five or six weeks of rehearsal that you get. I like doing previews; I like the opening week because my friends and family come, and then after that, I don’t want to do it anymore.
So much about being a director is getting the show ready for that first preview audience. I have a lot of experience making events that only happen once; it’s opening and closing night in the same three-hour span.
Musicals are written and then rewritten. Those things used to happen on the road. Now they are done in New York during preview performances.
I always got very excited about the Masters as a kid. I could hardly wait until the Wednesday when you’d get the BBC’s preview. And I’d then be glued to the screen until Sunday night.
When you’re reinterpreting the same material eight shows a week, it’s impossible to lock in the ‘ideal’ performance. Things that felt great in previews can feel forced three months in; jokes that got big laughs in the rehearsal room may suddenly fall flat in front of a paying audience.
My first kiss was onscreen. My character learned to drive before I did, so when they asked me to hit the mark with that giant Lincoln, I hit the camera instead. Being an actor gives an interesting perspective on life. And in my case, an interesting preview.
By going to a preview, a director becomes insidiously infected by the process, so by the end of it, you’re thinking, ‘It may be a bit too long.’
Instagram is my favorite! It’s interactive and a fun way to stay connected to my friends, family and fans. I love posting photos from family trips, property visits, previews of my collections, everything!
Books marketing has moved from the review culture to a preview culture.
One only has to look at the debacle that has unfolded in Iraq after the withdrawal of U.S. troops at the end of 2011 to have a sneak preview of what could take place in an Afghanistan without some kind of residual American presence.
