It’s Rex Manning Day 2016 as each year on April 8th, we celebrate the man who made Empire Records: Open Til Midnight a cult classic hit movie. The above “supercut” video is dedicated to the day, so sit back and enjoy it.
You can also check out one of our favorite clips of Rexxy’s music video “Say No More, Mon Amour” in the below movie clip. And, if you want to listen to the actual soundtrack from the movie, you can purchase it on Amazon.
Maxwell Caulfield played the role of Rex Manning and you may recognize him from other movies like Grease 2, where he starred opposite Michelle Pfeifer. Most recently, Caulfield appeared in a movie called Those That Wander and guess what his character’s name was … Rex.
So, if you get the urge to say, “Rexxy, you’re so sexy,” no one will stop you today. Twitter is abuzz with the hashtag #RexManningDay, so you can go wild with all the Empire movie quotes you want online.
Let’s get into some celebratory quotes from the Empire Records movie for a throwback moment.
