On the bonus content of the Blu-ray edition of “The Professor” “Death and How to Live it: Making The Professor” the actors Ron Livingston, Devon Terrell, Odessa Young, Rosemarie DeWitt, Danny Huston and the producer Brian Kavanaugh-Jones talks about working with Johnny.
Just lovely words ❤️
You are definitely loved Johnny!
5 months after its official release, Johnny’s latest movie “The Professor” will
next October 2 under its original title “Richard Says Goodbye” in DVD/Blu-ray and on
demand by the Defiant Screen Entertainment, an independent distributor of movies
and television product in Australia and New Zealand!
Today, August 15, “The Professor” officially premiered in South Korea and it
seems that it has been a huge audience who already happily watched and are planning to watch the
movie on the big screen.
The Professor or “A Suspicious Professor”, as is known in South Korea, had by
far the best promotional campaign.
It had dozens of promotional photos released online, three official posters, 6
characters posters, a special three days screening last July with a “Beer
Party” with beers from Blue Moon, along with promotional events with prizes,
free posters and special cards. In the beginning of August more special screenings
were realized and those who watched the movie at the Korean
cinema chain “CGV”, in Seoul, received a special gift: This lovely mug with a
special art made by the famous South Korean artist, Lee Kyu Young, who based his art on the official Korean poster.
So freaking cute! I’d like one!
Congratulations South Korea for this amazing campaign!
Watch and learn cinemas chains around the world!

those who watched the movie at Eivom Theater in Seoul, South Korea.

In 4 days, next July 27, “The Professor” will be released
in Taiwan under the title that can be read like “Goodbye Negative Life” and the Cai Chang Independent Multimedia is promoting the
filming with some articles, videos, posters, flyers and photos. Some of them are
pretty funny, like this one: A birthday game which was posted on Instagram and Facebook inspired on what “crazy” things people should do before living this world.
The game works with the last numbers of your birthday date.
Ex: Johnny’s birthday = 09/06/1963 = 9/6/3
In the game, Johnny’s result would be: Having Sex with Sweeney Todd
at the Office…. Well, that’s sound bloody crazy.
And mine is: Bathing with Captain Jack Sparrow at the Park… Well, would it be good to give a good bathe on him, right
Credits for the original source and idea goes to Cai Chang Independent.
The translation is slightly
different from the original Chinese version.
– First I changed the order of the topics from Year/Month/Day to Day/Month/Year
for a better result.
Some words were changed to fit better, like, instead of “One World Trade
Center” (The tallest building in the world) it was originally written “Taipei 101” (The tallest in Taiwan and the 9th of the world). As well
the choice “Chatting” which was previously written “Beat/Fight” and no one
wants to do it with Johnny.
The second topic was totally changed. On
the original version, there were different names, most of them from Taiwanese
politics, along with Captain America, Iron Man and even Anne Hathaway… So I changed it placing only Johnny’s characters.
These are the lasts behind the scenes photos taken from the Blu-ray Edition of “The Professor” bonus content “Death and How to Live It: Making The Professor” , which for unknown reasons, unfortunately doesn’t have an interview with Johnny himself…
