Lights, camera, SWAction! Southwest Airlines hits the big screen tomorrow as the major motion picture Moneyball starring Brad Pitt, Jonah Hill, and Phillip Seymour Hoffman, debuts in theaters across the country.
The film is based on the 2002 story of Oakland Athletic's general manager Billy Beane's successful attempt to put together a baseball club on a budget by employing computer-generated analysis to draft his players. In the scene when the Oakland A's start spring training, our yellow, red, and white Southwest logo is prominently displayed on the baseball field. You’ll also notice scenes shot at the Oakland Airport, and if you look very closely you may recognize some of our very own Employees from the Oakland Station!
The movie premiered in Oakland earlier this week and Southwest Airlines was onsite to get a sneak peek at this amazing film. Whether you’re a baseball fan or a Brad Pitt fan, this film is a must-see and we’re sure you’ll LUV it!
