Seth MacFarlane

A Million Ways To Die In The West Poster

 

 

So I got to talk to Seth MacFarlane… it was like talking to Brian Griffin in real life! It’s a dream come true!

No Neil Patrick Harris present in this premiere because he’s currently in Broadway performing in “Hedwig and the Angry Inch.” Also, no Liam Neeson for reasons I’m not sure of. Probably he was… taken?

Here are the photos from the event, with special appearance by Charlize Theron‘s new beau, Mr. Dead Man Walking, Sean Penn.

 


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

Steve Carell

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!

Alan Arkin

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

David Copperfield w/ Chloe Gosselin

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

Olivia Wilde

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.)

Steven Tyler

See you again on the next red carpet premiere!


Gangster Squad Red Carpet Premiere

Gangster Squad Movie Poster

Just by looking at the movie poster and seeing all those names and faces, you can already tell that this premiere was going to be packed… and damn right it was! Also, by looking at the second name on that list, you can  tell that a lot of the people attending will be women. And yup,  the screams were deafening as Ryan Gosling arrived and signed for the fans.

 

 

Ohhhhhh. It was so nice to be face to face with Babyface Ryan!  It was just like looking in front of the mirror! Well, not really.

Ryan Gosling

He arrived earlier than the other big celebrities and it’s funny because I noticed the crowd somewhat got cut in half after he waved buh-bye to the them. It’s pretty obvious who they came here for, isn’t it? Ryan Gosling’s got the sex appeal not so many people can match, that’s for sure.

We haven’t even started yet! Let’s now take a look at the movie trailer of Gangster Squad:

 

 

Here’s the adorable Emma Stone.

Emma Stone

A near-accident was witnessed as she was signing autograph for the fans. The barricade that separated her from the crowd almost fell towards her, good thing was that the security guys were fast enough to stop it. If they were just half a second late, that thing would have hurt Emma right away or even if it didn’t, there was no doubt that injuries will have been inflicted to some members of the crowd. Hooray for fast reflexes. Boo for poor quality control.

I  just finished having a movie marathon the other day, Ted and Saving Private Ryan were both included in it so I still pretty much have a Giovanni Ribisi overload in my brain and look who’s here! Giovanni Ribisi!

Giovanni Ribisi

I just love that face he was making. I’ll call that the Giovanni look from now on.

Michael Peña. I just met him a couple of months ago at the End of Watch premiere. Boy somebody’s been busy!

Michael Peña

In the same premiere I also saw this guy, Danny Masterson.

Danny Masterson

Robert Patrick (Terminator 2: Judgment Day, The X-Files)

And now, my two main men:

The great Sean Penn

Sean Penn

…and Josh Brolin!

Josh Brolin

This movie is very promising. I can’t wait to watch it! See you guys again soon 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.

Peter Ramsay

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

Alec Baldwin

He then poses for the photographers…

Alec Baldwin

And does interviews.Alec Baldwin

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.


Cloud Atlas Red Carpet Premiere

Cloud Atlas Movie Poster

I’m still hyped from seeing Denzel Washington last night and I’m thrilled to be in another premiere just 24 hours after! Here we are today at The Grauman’s Chinese Theater for the Red Carpet Premiere of Cloud Atlas.

 

 

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!

Cloud Atlas Premiere

Let’s go spot some movie peeps!

Here’s writer/producer/director of the film, Lana Wachowski!

Lana Wachowski

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.

Lana Wachowski

You can tell she’s in a very good mood!

Lana Wachowski

Now here’s the other half of The Wachowskis, Andy Wachowski!

English actor Jim Broadbent

Jim Broadbent

I’m sure you know the next one. Academy Award Winning Actress, Susan Sarandon!

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!

Now here’s Jim Sturgess and his mustache

Jim Sturgess

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!!!

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!

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?!

Ready?

Halle Berry

Stand up straight, give your best red carpet pose!

Halle Berry

Alright 1…2…3… smile!!!

Halle Berry

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!


End of Watch Red Carpet Premiere

End of Watch Movie Poster

Alright Jake Gyllenhaal fans, now is your day! He’s coming to Hollwood to promote his new movie, End of Watch with co-stars Michael Peña and Anna Kendrick.

***CLICK HERE TO WATCH THE MOVIE TRAILER OF “END OF WATCH”***

This one’s being held at the Regal Cinemas in L.A. Live, this venue is smaller than Grauman’s theater and is  less known to the public. That means there are less people going to the events held here and therefore better chances for a fan to get pictures and autographs with his/her favorite celebrity.  And’ that’s why I love this place! They hold gala premieres here every now and then, and I invite you all to come experience it with us sometime.

End of Watch Movie

Before we get started, let’s clean the red carpet first. There might still be some dog fur in there. My pet husky has been shedding lately…

Red Carpet Cleanin

I think it’s clean now. Alright I’m kinda in a hurry, let’s go straight to the arrivals. Celebs, come on over!

First up, Anna Kendrick.

Anna Kendrick

I love this girl. She looks really sweet and charming. I’ve been seeing her a lot of times lately, it gives the illusion that we’re close friends now even if she doesn’t even know me haha.

Anna Kendrick Signing Autographs

She signs and interacts with everyone in the crowd. Thank you, Anna!

Arriving right after Anna is the star of the show, Jake Gyllenhaal!

Jake Gyllenhaal Red Carpet Arrival

And he goes straight to the fans. Here he is as if saying with his eyes, “okayyyy…”

Jake Gyllenhall Signing Autographs

“Jake, can you please sign? Here’s the poster, it’s right on your face so won’t miss it. Thank you Jake!”

Jake’s really nice, signing and taking pictures with everyone. He’s also noticeably grizzly now, I thought I’d see him with a shaved head like in the movie trailer. Expecting bald and seeing super hairy. It’s a bit surprising haha.

Jake Gyllenhaal Signing Autographs

Jake Gyllenhaal

Thanks for the autographs, Jake!

Cody Horn is next. I’ve only seen her on film once before, and that was on Magic Mike which also happens to have premiered here in this exact place!

Cody Horn

She’s so gorgeous in person!

Cody Horn

Cody, those high heels can kill!

Michael Peña arrives shortly after Cody.  Guess what? He will be having a starring role as Cesar E. Chavez in the upcoming movie, Chavez.

Michael Pena

Michael Peña meets Jake Gyllenhaal on the red carpet

There’s a limo coming!

Limousine

But you know what’s more amazing? It’s the blue streaks of light that I’m getting from my camera. I don’t know how that’s happening there are no blue lights there. Can somebody explain that to me? Any photographers out there? Physicists?  Chemists? Astronauts?

That guy looks familiar… Joe Manganiello

It’s Joe Maganiello! He’s appeared in a lot of movies and TV series but he’s most famous for his works on True Blood. He also appeared on Magic Mike as Big Dick Richie. I got stuck with that name so I think I’ll always call him Big Dick Richie haha.

He’s so tall and buff it would be hard not to nice him even if he’s not an actor!

Joe Manganiello

Joe Manganiello

Remember Steven Hyde from That 70’s show? He’s here! Danny Masterson! He’s also appearing now on the new TV series, Men At Work.

Danny Masterson

I miss that show. That 70’s Show…

Now here’s my favorite picture of the nightFrank Grillo

That’s Frank Grillo. He appeared on movies such as Warrior, The Grey, and Minority Report.  He’s the last one to arrive for the night.

There ya go folks. Please watch End of Watch, on theaters September 21, 2012.

I’m going home now. Bye guys!
Wait! Hold on! Someone’s coming!

I see a Rolls Royce…

Rolls Royce

And it has a convoy… a Bentley! This must be someone big!

Bentley

But who could that be? The main actors are already inside…

50 cent

Such a fun night. I’ll see you again on the next red carpet event, folks!
