Open Road Films announced today they have lined up Blue Diamond Almonds, Frontier Airlines, Homes.com; The Humane Society of the United States, iFetch, Kika Tech, Menchie’s Frozen Yogurt, National Recreation and Parks Association, National Wildlife Federation, PB Crave and Pug Nation as the studio’s ‘nuttiest’ promotional partners to support the August 11th, 2017 release of The Nut Job 2: Nutty by Nature.
Blue Diamond Growers is teaming up with the creators, characters and fellow nut enthusiasts in The Nut Job 2: Nutty by Nature in their mission to create fun and memorable snacking moments for the whole family to enjoy. To celebrate the movie sequel release of The Nut Job 2, Blue Diamond Growers is offering consumers the chance to watch the animated action-packed comedy for free. From July 15 to September 15, consumers will have the opportunity to receive a free movie ticket to see The Nut Job 2 or any other movie of their choice when they buy any two 6 oz. cans of Blue Diamond almonds.
“The Nut Job 2 is the perfect film for parents and kids to enjoy a special moment together,” said Maya Erwin, Brand Marketing Director for Blue Diamond Growers. “Blue Diamond almonds are the perfect snack to accompany such a nutty movie. Our products are a measure of care and consistency, and we always strive to provide families with the highest quality almonds to satisfy snack cravings and energize their day.”
Frontier Airlines is “nuts about savings’ and will celebrate the release of The Nut Job 2: Nutty by Nature in theaters with Surly, the film’s main squirrel surprising people at airports all summer long. Frontier will be creating a sweepstakes promotion urging consumers to share their photos for a chance to win a free round trip flight! To enter, consumers will tell Frontier where they saw Surly by using #TheNutJob2Frontier and following @thenutjobmovie and @flyfrontier.” In addition, in-flight across the entire fleet, Frontier will highlight The Nut Job 2: Nutty by Nature by having characters making an appearance on cups, napkins and the cabin service guide. You can find out more about the excitement by visiting FlyFrontier.com, and Frontier’s Facebook, Twitter and Instagram accounts.
Homes.com is going nuts! With over 3 million homes for sale and rent, we were certain that we could help Surly and friends find a new home, but scarce treehouse listings thwarted our efforts! Still, we love our customers (furry or not) so we’re celebrating Surly’s story with some fun articles and interesting information centered around helping backyard wildlife and sheltered pets find their dream homes! We’ll also be spotlighting some cool quizzes, games, and home collections featuring our favorite furry film stars!
Humane Society of the United States. “As wild animals adapt and flourish in the natural park and community spaces within our cities, it becomes increasingly important to protect them. These natural places not only enhance our daily lives, but make cities better places to live. Educating the next generation about the fascinating wildlife with which we share our communities and the threats these animals face, is an important step in protecting all wildlife and their habitat,” said Michelle Cho, vice president of Celebrity and Entertainment Outreach for The Humane Society of the United States. “We applaud Open Road Films for raising awareness and engaging young minds with the release of The Nut Job 2: Nutty by Nature. As Surly Squirrel says in the film, “it’s going to take everyone” to protect animals by saving their natural habitats and that includes youth and their families all around the globe.”
