There’s another premiere simultaneously held at the Arclight Cinemas, it’s called Silent Hill: Revelation 3D. It’s a great movie as well (I love the video game!) featuring Adelaide Clemens, Carrie Anne Moss and Malcolm McDowell. I chose to go to the Cloud Atlas premiere for obvious reasons: the star power of Tom Hanks, Halle Berry, and Hugh Grant!
She and her brother, Andy, are best known for directing The Matrix. They’re more popularly known as the Wachowski Brothers/Wachowski Starship/The Wachowskis. Other films they’re involved at are Bound, Speed Racer, V for Vendetta, and Ninja Assassin.
I’m sure you know the next one. Academy Award Winning Actress, Susan Sarandon!
It’s funny because while I was taking the picture above, there was this woman behind me who was talking in another language and even if I wasn’t able to understand what she was saying, it was very clear that she was so ecstatic and she mentioned Susan Sarandon’s full name about a hundred times! It’s always nice to know that the tourists are enjoying their time here in Hollywood!
Keanu Reeves also made an appearance which is a huge surprise because I love the guy and I didn’t expect him to be there! The Wachowskis directed The Matrix series so I guess he’s there to support them. He hasn’t made that much films as of late but he’s working on two new films, Man of Tai Chi an 47 Ronin. I didn’t get to take a picture of him *sigh*, he was too quick to disappear. He still got those The Matrix moves.
Now let’s see the star of the film, the man who needs no introduction, Mr. Tom Hanks!!!
He took out his iPhone and decided to take a video of the crowd. Nice. We’re gonna be on Tom Hank’s iPhone haha!
The only disappointment of the night was that there’s no Hugh Grant appearance but to me it’s really not a big deal because after seeing a Tom Hanks and a Susan Sarandon up close, I guarantee that everybody will go home happy! Well, except for the ones who came there just for Hugh Grant but oh well, there’s always a next time for you guys.
Last but not the least is another Academy Award Winning Actress, Halle Berry!
And now it’s time for you to see what it feels like to be Halle Berry on the red carpet! Make sure you give your best smile to the cameras, okay?!
Stand up straight, give your best red carpet pose!
Alright 1…2…3… smile!!!
Yayyy!!! You sure got it in you! You’re gonna be the next Halle. Halle Tosis.
That’s all folks! See you again on the next premiere!
We’re here at the Arclight Cinerama Dome in Sunset Blvd and we’re celebrating Denzel Washington Day! Another A-lister we’re adding to our list. The setup here in Arclight is not as crowd friendly as in Grauman’s Chinese Theater but let’s see if we get lucky and get to see Denzel up close.
The last movie I saw him in revolved around a train, this time on a plane. The movie looks promising and I would definitely go see it!
The carpet was white, not red, so that it matches the theme of the movie. At first I thought that white thing was something that’s supposed to be under the red carpet and they’ll add that later but as time went by I realized that it was the carpet itself. For some reason, I was too worried it will have too many footprints. As if people will take pictures of it. And as if I’m the one cleaning it after. I should get a life. And this paragraph doesn’t have any significance at all. Anyways…
Bruce Greenwood. He played Pike on Star Trek (2009) and has also worked with Denzel before on the movie Deja Vu. He was also on Eight Below (with Paul Walker). I love that movie. I love Siberian Huskies!
Melissa Leo, she played Alice Ward, Micky (Mark Wahlberg) and Dicky’s (Christian Bale) mom in The Fighter, where she won the Golden Globe, Screen Actor’s Guild Award and Academy Award for Best Supporting Actress.
There’s no appearance for John Goodman and Don Cheadle for the night, I wonder why. Not a big deal though and it’s not something I would cry about haha. Frankly I just came here for the great Denzel.
Like I said above, the setup in Arclight is not very crowd friendly because the railings are set in a way that the actors will have no chance of getting out of the red carpet to interact with fans but Bruce Greenwood was nice enough to ask the security personnel to open it up so he can walk towards us.
And yay! I got a picture with him!
We had a nice chit chat too. He said Denzel won’t be arriving for another hour and I said “an hour?!” and he said he was just kidding and he’ll be there in 15 mins. I said that we really wouldn’t mind if it takes him a whole day, we’ll wait no matter what. Of course I was just kidding too. I don’t have that much patience haha. The picture I took was blurry and he’s not looking at the camera so I asked for another one.
There. Much better. Thank you so much Bruce!!!
And finally, the main man. I was actually really afraid by this time that I’m not going to get any good shots because a bunch of media men have flocked in front of me. Not good. All I got from my camera by this time were people’s backs. I still managed to get Denzel though, but just barely. So here it is, ladies and gentlemen, my somewhat voyeuristic photos of Mr. Denzel Washington!
Okay let’s just say I made those “through-the-hole” shots for artistic purposes and let’s leave it at that. I’m an artist, ya know. Haha.
That’s all for tonight folks! See you again on the next premiere!
