CinemaCon, which is a convention “celebrating the moviegoing experience,” had its awards ceremony last night in Las Vegas. It’s a weird ceremony hosted by theater owners, with all of the winners announced beforehand, but Amy Schumer took the opportunity to make a very important plea: No more Kevin Hart movies.
Look I’m new to Hollywood, obviously. I haven’t gotten an eating disorder yet, but I already feel like I want to ask you guys a favor if it’s not too much. If you could only show ‘Trainwreck’ this summer. I mean, I know you have other movies. I know you guys don’t let money run you. It’s the heart. And that’s fine if you don’t want do that, just don’t show anymore Kevin Hart movies. (Laughs.) Hear me out. Hear me out. I want to bring back our girls and give back Kevin Hart.She thanked a bunch of people in her speech, including the theater owners.
We had bad parents, my sister and I. We snuck into so many movies. We would go see a movie and then we’d run into another theater and then you’d see another movie, so I’m sorry about that. (Laughs.) Always sneak booze in. Always. But, still. If I have a day I want to go see a movie. And, yeah, I never really thought about the theater owners. Now, I’ve met some of you and you’re cool people. I didn’t even know you existed and then we met today and we were drinking. Two people from Memphis, you guys were cool. Texas chick was cool. I will come to every theater and have a drink with you. If you want that I’ll do that. You know who won’t do that? Kevin Hart! I know I need to wrap it up, which is something I’ve never done before…
Obviously Amy Schumer has her own reasons for not wanting Kevin Hart movies shown in theaters. It leaves more room for Trainweck. But really, who among us wouldn’t support the removal of his movies from theaters/existence? Not even Kevin Hart likes Kevin Hart movies.
