Cube has also made sure to speak out on the big celebration day.
“For the theaters, for New Line [Cinema], for the fans to want to pay homage to the movie in this way is cool,” he said. “It lets you know how much people appreciate it and how much fun it is … and it lets you know that Friday is now a part of the American fabric.” (Buzzfeed News)
Along with the flick, the movie’s soundtrack will also be reissued.
The showing will also include a 24-minute featurette with behind-the-scenes footage and interviews with the cast, titled “Friday Straight Up.” The 1995 movie soundtrack, which went No. 1, will have a vinyl reissue on April 14. (CNN)
