For these of you on the market which will have missed it earlier this yr, as soon as upon a time nice actor John Travolta (PulpFiction, Look Who’s Talking) starred as a sad-sack stalker named Moose in co-writer/director Fred “I did it all for the Nookie” Durst’s psychological thriller The Fanatic. And immediately we have simply acquired phrase that Travolta appears to assume his efficiency within the much-maligned movement image deserves an Academy Award nomination.
Our consideration to the John Travolta “For Your Consideration” advert marketing campaign was led to through a man named Will Mavity over on Twitter, who tweeted one among Travolta’s marketing campaign posters with the caption:
“OMFG TRAVOLTA IS RUNNING FYC ADS FOR THE FANATIC (the movie with a 17% on Rotten Tomatoes). I swear to god this is not a bit. People made jokes about him doing this for Gotti last year and he actually did it asghfkj.”
You can take a look at Mavity’s tweet beneath, which thank the maker, sports activities one among Travolta’s superb marketing campaign posters.

As talked about by Mavity in his tweet above, The Fanatic has solely managed to attain a lackluster 17% approval score over on Rotten Tomatoes. The Critics Consensus reads: “John Travolta offers it his oddly coiffed all, however The Fanatic rings hole as an examination of the way in which fan appreciation can curdle into poisonous obsession.” But hey, for all of the unhealthy word-of-mouth seeping out across the movie, a minimum of individuals appear to be having fun with John Travolta’s unhinged efficiency, proper?
The movie stars John Travolta as Moose together with Devon Sawa as the thing of his obsession, horror film actor Hunter Dunbar. Their co-stars on this thriller embrace Ana Golja as Leah, Jacob Grodnik as Todd, and James Paxton as Slim. Fred Durst directed The Fanatic from a screenplay he co-wrote together with Dave Bekerman primarily based on a supposedly actual story from Durst’s personal life. Daniel Grodnik produced the film together with Oscar Generale and Bill Kenwright. Quiver Distribution launched the movie again on August 30, 2019.
Now if Travolta will get the final snort right here and snags himself an Oscar nomination – for the record- it might not be his first. Travolta has truly already snagged two Academy Award nominations prior to now for his efficiency as Anthony “Tony” Manero in director John Badham’s discothèque drama flick Saturday Night Fever. And, clearly, for his masterpiece efficiency as Vincent Vega in writer-director Quentin Tarantino’s hardboiled crime opus Pulp Fiction.
But possibly the person is taking pictures a bit too excessive attempting to snag one other Oscar nomination for his work in Fred “preserve rollin’, rollin’, rollin’ what? Durst’s The Fanatic. After all, possibly a Golden Globe is what he ought to set his sights on as an alternative. Especially contemplating they’ve honored him with many extra nominations than the Oscars have. In truth, The Golden Globes have bestowed upon Travolta a whopping seven nominations over time for his work in tasks such because the above-mentioned motion pictures Saturday Night Fever and Pulp Fiction together with Grease, Get Shorty, Primary Colors, Hairspray, and The People v. O. J. Simpson: American Crime Story. This story involves us from Will Mavity on Twitter.
