Retroist Presents: Joe Dante’s E! Gremlins 2 Segment (1990)

Do you remember back in the early days of E! when they would do the Shameless Plug segment? An actor or director would be taped for five seconds, allowing them to express their desires to have you see their new film. In this segment Joe Dante implores everyone to go out and catch the sequel to his 1984 box office smash, Gremlins.

Hey, there’s a bonus appearance by Beau Bridges at the beginning of that clip as well!
