Come February every year, chances are good an old pal will unexpectedly pop up and say, “Tag, you’re it.”
Mark Steilen is a Spokane guy who has helped tell the movie story of 10 other Spokane guys.
“Tag” nails the energy and enduring companionship the game has engendered among this group of friends. It’s the kind of frothy escapist fare that goes down easy on a hot summer day, with a big old beating heart to boot.
Six of the 10 men whose 30 years of elaborate strategies, betrayals and friendships inspired the movie “Tag” gathered in the NorthTown Mall cinema in Spokane for the premiere of the film based on their friendship.
Spokane can relax. The movie is funny. “Tag,” the comedy inspired by the exploits of 10 Gonzaga Prep graduates and their decades-long game of tag, is also irreverent, inappropriate and even a little sweet.
Movies Tag (2018) Based on the true story of 10 Spokane guys and their never-ending game of tag, this comedy starring John Hamm, Jeremy Renner and Ed Helms will be released June 15.
The R-rated comedy with Ed Helms, Jon Hamm, Jeremy Renner, Hannibal Buress and Jake Johnson, opens nationwide on June 15.
“I started only doing standup, and the other the stuff came as a byproduct of it,” Buress said in a recent phone interview from Las Vegas. “I’m an entertainer that focuses in standup comedy but who is willing to do other stuff.”
Tag,” a new feature film about a group of guys who have been playing a decades-long game of tag since their school days, released its full-length trailer this morning on “Ellen.”
The story of 10 Gonzaga Prep classmates and their epic, decades-long game of tag is coming to theaters this summer.
