Sony Releases First Eight Minutes of ‘Aloha’ Online to Boost Box Office (Video)

Cameron Crowe’s latest, which opens Friday, stars Bradley Cooper, Emma Stone and Rachel McAdams

Sony Pictures has released the first eight minutes of Cameron Crowe‘s widely reviled “Aloha” on YouTube.

The romantic comedy, which opens Friday and currently boasts an 8% fresh rating on Rotten Tomatoes, stars Bradley Cooper, Emma Stone, Rachel McAdams, Bill Murray, Alec Baldwin, John Krasinski and Danny McBride.

The sneak peek sets up the love triangle at the heart of the film between ex-pilot Cooper, his former flame McAdams and a military staffer played by Stone.

Crowe’s latest film has come under fire for its depiction of Hawaiians as mystical natives who were marginalized in the ensemble.

Watch the first eight minutes below and let us know if you plan to see “Aloha” this weekend, when the film will face Dwayne Johnson’s disaster movie “San Andreas,” which has also struggled with critics.
