SING, the highly-anticipated, animated film from Universal Pictures and Illumination Entertainment debuted in theaters December 21. On Tuesday, December 13, a week before the release, Comcast Colorado hosted an advanced screening for approximately 200 people at the UA Denver Pavilions Stadium 15.
The screening was a fun-filled night with local guests including: Comcast NBCU’s community partners such as City Year, Easter Seals and Mile High United Way and local leaders in the Denver area and their children. The movie-goers took part in a photo booth with musical props, giant floor keyboards and lots of movie popcorn!
SING is set in a world like ours but entirely inhabited by animals, SING stars Buster Moon (Matthew McConaughey), a dapper Koala who presides over a once-grand theater that has fallen on hard times. Buster is an eternal optimist who loves his theater above all and will do anything to preserve it. Now facing the crumbling of his life’s ambition, he has one final chance to restore his fading jewel to its former glory by producing the world’s greatest singing competition.
Five lead contestants emerge: A mouse (Seth MacFarlane), a timid teenage elephant (Tori Kelly) with an enormous case of stage fright, an overtaxed mother (Reese Witherspoon) run ragged tending a litter of 25 piglets, a young gangster gorilla (Taron Egerton) looking to break free of his family’s felonies, and a punk-rock porcupine (Scarlett Johansson) struggling to shed her arrogant boyfriend and go solo. Each animal arrives under Buster’s marquee believing that this is their shot to change the course of their life.
