|Werewolves and vampires agree on one thing: vodka.|
Actor Gil Birmingham, who plays Billy Black, a.k.a. Jacob's dad, in the films made a stop at the theater to promote the film. It was pretty basic; he stood in front of a theater full of teen girls and their moms, said some nice things about Kansas and Team Jacob, then got mobbed with fans desperate to have their photo taken with the werewolf's papa.
But what was odd about the event was a table in the theater's Fork & Screen restaurant that was covered in Absolut vodka swag and Eclipse-themed cocktails.
Birmingham didn't actually spend any time swilling the booze, and moviegoers needed to be 18 or older or accompanied by a parent to sit in the eatery/bar. But it does seem curious that the theater's promotional team would tout liquor with a movie based on books written by a Mormon and targeted at underage readers.
