Saturn Hopes to Score Big at the Summer Box Office

Advertising Age reports that Saturn plans to advertise at movie theaters this summer, promoting its Vue sport-utility and Aura midsize sedan. "What's the big draw of the big screen?" asks AdAge. "A captive younger audience."

The onslaught of cars rolling into movie theaters this summer isn't the cartoon kind. Rather, it's an advertising barrage from automakers trying to get at the blockbuster crowd and driving double-digit segment growth in the medium. General Motors' Saturn Vue and Aura models will be starring on over 30,000 screens in June via buys with both Screenvision and National CineMedia, said Dave Koziara, the brand's advertising manager. He expects to reach more than 150 million people with the ads from Deutsch, Los Angeles, and dealers will have vehicle displays at theaters and linked activities in some markets.

Kelly Foss at Car-Data.com reviewed the 2008 Saturn Outlook and enjoyed the vehicle's styling, space, power, and efficiency. "I could coax about 25 miles per gallon out of the 3.6 liter V6 Outlook on a straight freeway cruise at 60 miles an hour," he wrote in his review, "which is very good for a vehicle of this size."
