As Wildfires Burn, Paramount Preempts ‘Playing With Fire’ PR Disaster With Charitable Outreach

Wildfire season is a risky time to debut a comedy about kids who get separated from their parents during a wildfire.

With 10 wildfires currently burning throughout California, residents have become all too familiar with the concept of containment — a measurement that refers to the perimeter firefighters create around a blaze to prevent its spread. Marketing materials for Paramount’s November 8 firehouse comedy “Playing With Fire” starring John Cena uses the tagline “0% Contained.” Not exactly the association you want for a Nickelodeon-produced family movie.

However, Paramount appears acutely aware of the optics. With a plan for charitable donations and other outreach to real-life firefighters, the studio has gotten ahead of any critical commentary on the matter, most of which has long been planned, a representative said.

Cena plays a straight-laced fire superintendent who heads an elite team of smokejumpers who parachute into blazes. Keegan-Michael Key, John Leguizamo, and Tyler Mane are part of the team who rescue three children (Brianna Hildebrand, Christian Convery, and Finley Rose Slater) in the path of a wildfire. They unwittingly become babysitters to the siblings when they’re unable to locate the children’s parents and find that kids, much like fires, are wild and unpredictable.

While the trailer for “Playing With Fire” suggests that the core of the movie is firefighters-meet-children-hijinks that happen in the safety of the firehouse, its release date is firmly ensconced in California’s fire season.

Cena took to Twitter Monday as the Getty Fire burned homes and prompted mandatory evacuations on the Westside of Los Angeles, announcing that he would donate $500,000 to a first-responder charity: All Paramount needed to do is choose one.


“Paramount is bringing you the movie ‘Playing with Fire and today I asked myself, ‘What can I do?,'” he said. “I have come up with an answer: I want Paramount to do me one favor — pick a charity. Pick a charity that aids our first responders as soon as possible and on behalf of ‘Playing with Fire’ and out of respect to the people I truly believe are heroes, my response will be to immediately donate half-a-million-dollars to that cause.”

Paramount responded about 30 minutes later, suggesting the California Fire Foundation, which offers emotional and financial assistance to families of fallen firefighters, firefighters and their communities, as well as the Los Angeles Fire Department Foundation, the city department’s nonprofit arm.

A Paramount representative said the studio has screened the movie for first responders and their families across the country, is giving away Halloween candy at firehouses in field markets, and will release a featurette next week to celebrate the work of smokejumpers.

Watch Collider’s Kid Reporter Interview John Cena and the ‘Playing with Fire’ Cast

With the family comedy Playing With Fire opening in movie theaters this weekend, we recently sent Collider’s “kid reporter” (otherwise known as my niece) to talk with John Cena, Keegan-Michael Key, Brianna Hildebrand and director Andy Fickman in New York City. While it was her first time doing an interview and being on camera, I think she did a great job. And I’m not just saying that because I’m her uncle.

As you’ll see in the player [here], Gigi (my niece) and the cast talked about making Playing With Fire, if they were worried about being slimed because it was a Nickelodeon movie, what was their favorite part of the movie, what it was like working with the dog Masher, if the cast performed their own stunts, and a lot more. In addition, you can watch John Cena and Keegan-Michael Key recreate their throw up scene.

Check out what they had to say and below is exactly what they talked about followed by the official synopsis and trailer.

John Cena, Keegan-Michael Key, Brianna Hildebrand and Andy Fickman:

Recreating the throw up scene
What it was like working with John Cena?
How long did it take to make the movie?
What was their favorite part of the movie?
Did Brianna Hildebrand really get to drive the ATV?
Did John Cena really use the parachutes?
What was it like working with the dog Masher?
Did they worry about being slimed because this was a Nickelodeon movie?
Was it challenging filming the fire sequences?
Here’s the Playing With Fire synopsis and trailer:

When straight-laced fire superintendent Jake Carson (John Cena) and his elite team of expert firefighters (Keegan-Michael Key, John Leguizamo and Tyler Mane) come to the rescue of three siblings (Brianna Hildebrand, Christian Convery and Finley Rose Slater) in the path of an encroaching wildfire, they quickly realize that no amount of training could prepare them for their most challenging job yet – babysitters. Unable to locate the children’s parents, the firefighters have their lives, jobs and even their fire depot turned upside down and quickly learn that kids – much like fires –are wild and unpredictable.
