A comedic, genre-bending explosion of parkour, martial arts, dance and music action, and features the biggest stars from the hip hop and B-boy dance worlds,” is how Marriott describes its first original short film TWO BELLMEN, starring (yes, as the two bellmen) leading Hollywood stuntmen William Spencer (SPIDER-MAN; SPIDER-MAN 2) and Caine Sinclair (NBC’s Grimm; How I met Your Mother).

Here’s the trailer on YouTube that was released today:

TWO BELLMEN was directed by Daniel “Malakai” Cabrera and written by Cabrera and Jade Raybin. Marriott’s Content Studio head David Beebe served as Executive Producer and Evan J. Cholfin of Stories International, Inc. produced. The film follows a competitive relationship between two exceptional bellmen that grows into a new friendship when the pair works together to thwart an attempted art heist. The hotel, the bellmen and JW Marriott’ signature service culture emerge as heroes.

Marriott is making movies: silly or progressive?

The film debuts on YouTube March 10, 2015. It features a multiplatform, all-screens distribution strategy including digital, theater, in-room, online, Marriott.com, and Marriott’s 47 million Marriott Reward members. For more information, check out http://twobellmen.com.

We know modern-day media platforms have been very successful at producing their own content (think: Netflix’s House of Cards). Is Marriott onto something with its “multiple platforms” Content Studio?
