The Incredible Burt Wonderstone Red Carpet Premiere

The Incredible Burt Wonderstone Poster

Two of my favorite funny men: Jim Carrey and Steve Carell are here! This is fantastic! Or as the movie poster says, ABRACATASTIC!!! I’m so excited to watch this film!



This is the first post-Daylight Savings Time premiere of the year that Im attending. That means the arrivals are happening while the sun is still up. Not really a big deal but I like it  because I can see the celebrities much better. This is also my first post where I’m using my new Canon 6D.

And now, let the magic happen!

Steve Carell walks straight to the crowd to sign autographs

Alan Arkin loves the people. Here, he’s taking photos of people who are taking photos of him. Would be interesting to see the ones he took. We’re probably all there!

David Copperfield arrives with French model, Chloe Gosselin. Legit magician in the house!

The beautiful Olivia Wilde. So beautiful on screen, so beautiful in real life!

We were told that  there’s no Steve Buscemi appearance so sorry to Enoch ‘Nucky’ Thompson fans. Maybe next time.

And now, here’s my favorite comedian of all time. The funniest man alive, JIM CARREY!!!! He’s walking normally, but subconsciously I can see him walk the way Ace Ventura does. I love that movie! And I love this man!

Jim Carrey

Being face to face with him is amazing! He’s so full of energy, very Jim Carrey!

A big bonus before the arrivals ended. This I didn’t expect… Steven Tyler! Good thing I didn’t leave early, and good thing  I DIDN’T MISS A THING! (Ha. That’s the best way I could insert that line.)

See you again on the next red carpet premiere!

Rise of the Guardians Red Carpet Premiere

Rise of the Guardians Movie Poster

Still part of the AFI Fest 2012 presented by Audi, Rise of the Guardians is a film by Dreamworks directed by Peter Ramsey starring the voices of Chris Pine, Jude Law, Alec Baldwin, Hugh Jackman, Isla Fisher and Dakota Goyo. Some pretty big Hollywood names here but this fest has been turning out to be a festival of non-arrivals. Like I said in my previous post, none of the stars of Hitchcock attended their premiere while for On The Road, some stars of the film did come, not all of them. Well, for today I guess seeing at least one of these celebrities is good enough.

It’s a Sunday and the gala premiere is being held much earlier than the usual. The arrivals start around 3 pm while the movie starts at 4 pm. Let’s watch the trailer for Rise of The Guardians:


Heading on to the arrivals. Here’s director Peter Ramsey. This is just his second work as a director but he has had a long list of work as a storyboard artist. Fight Club, Minority Report, and Independence Day are just some of the films he has worked on.

And now here’s Alec Baldwin being accompanied by his wife, Hilaria Thomas. He goes right away to the crowd to sign autographs…

He then poses for the photographers…

Unfortunately for us, he is the only one who arrives but like I said, seeing just one star is good enough for this film fest. So yup, this is good enough. Well not really. But it’s fine, it’s fine. Let’s just see Hugh Jackman and Co. next time. Now let’s go home and watch 30 Rock.
