Cast of Napoleon Dynamite Coming to Boise For Exclusive Showing
Believe it or not, Boise is no stranger to the red carpet and frankly, the red carpet loves Boise. Over the years, we have seen more and more Hollywood celebrities make their way to the Treasure Valley for various reasons. For some its vacation, for others its business, and yes--the red carpet gets rolled out from time to time, as well.
Think back to when Netflix released 'El Camino', which drove Breaking Bad fans to absolute mania. Aaron Paul and the film leadership team chose BOISE, IDAHO to be where the red carpet was rolled out for the premiere and the city was upside down. Of course for Aaron, this wasn't the first time causing mania in Boise!
One movie that certainly drew a lot of attention to Idaho in its prime and frankly, still paints us in a peculiar light, was 'Napoleon Dynamite'. After it became a global sensation, the world really though that all of us here in Idaho lived in a field and loved tater tots.
Just over a year ago, a behind the scenes video emerged that gave lovers of Napoleon Dynamite an intimate look at the coaching that went into every scene:
