Hi Fellow Ri9hard Armitage Fans,
I have my train and movie tickets, my hotel reservation, and my new comfy shoes. Chicago, here I come! Ha!
Even if you can’t make it to either the Chicago or NYC RA Fans gatherings on August 9th to meet up and view the exquisitely talented British actor Richard Armitage’s new film Into the Storm together, I hope that you will get out and see the film its opening weekend wherever you are in the world and whenever that is for you.
Opening weekend box offices sales are a huge part of the initial “success ranking” of a film–and large attendance promotes good buzz by word of mouth positive reviews. Hence our grassroots efforts to support the film its opening weekends around the world that we call OpeRAtion Into the Storm 2014.
So enjoy the film and Richard Armitage (right as Gary Fuller/Morris courtesy of http://www.RichardArmitageNet.com) wherever you are and whenever you see the film.
Cheers! Grati ;->

P. S. But tornadoes are serious business–not for the faint of heart–and lives are devastated each year when they strike. So as a tie-in to the movie Into the Storm, there is a SpReAd the Love plan to make a donation to disaster relief organizations via the SpReAd the Love campaign with each act of kindness given or received.
August 3, 2014–Michaela Servetus (Thanks!) shared a link she saw on sahraobsessed’s tumblr (Thanks!), for The Weather Channel interviewing Richard Armitage (Grati’s cap) about Into the Storm August 1st (based on his attire that he also wore for the Canada AM interview, ha!):

August 3, 2014–Thanks to Perry at her Armitage Agonistes blog for sharing a recent ad where one of our Chicago August 9th event co-admin organizers SahraObsessed is quoted about her experience in seeing the film Into the Storm in previews:
Sahra will be with us on August 9th in Chicago!
August 3, 2014–Obscura (OpITS 2014 Chicago Co-admin) at her Ancient Armitage blog shares an even cooler reason to view “Into the Storm” its opening weekend in Chicago–the potential to win free movie tickets:
August 03, 2014–A great interview with Richard Armitage about Into the Storm:
Richard Armitage: “It’s a strange phenomenon that we like to watch films like this (and) see a certain amount of destruction for entertainment. But what happens is that we look to this human courage and human resolve to reassure us.” He adds, “(There’s a) kind of catharsis that happens by going to see a film like this.”
