Movie 43 Red Carpet Premiere
Movie 43. So many stars in one movie and I’m really curious how it would turn out! Richard Gere, Hugh Jackman, Halle Berry, Emma Stone, Uma Thurman, Kate Winslet, and so on and so forth. The list of stars never ends! Is it going to be one of the most successful comedy movie of all time? Or is it going to blow? Starpower does not always necessarily mean success, I mean, look at the Lakers now. All those talents, wrongfully utilized. How can you have Kobe and Pau and Dwight and Steve Nash and MWP in one team and still suck?! It’s unimaginable. Anyways, I’m getting off topic now. Here’s the trailer for Movie 43…
I was highly skeptical about all those stars showing up for the red carpet premiere so I tried not to expect too much to avoid disappointment. The arrivals were scheduled to start around 6:30 pm and I got there at 6:28, which was really late since you have to be at least 2 hours early if you want to get a pretty decent spot for your stargazing. I got to stand far far away from the carpet, so please enjoy my ugly pictures. Ha.
Roastmaster Jeff Ross was the first one I saw, he was doing interviews for a segment on his new show on Comedy Central, The Burn With Jeff Ross. He’s in almost every picture that I’m posting here so if we change the title of this blog to The Burn With Jeff Ross, it can actually still work!
Here he is with Rusty Cundieff
Jackass Director, Jeff Tremaine
TV Host Chelsea Handler and actor Griffin Dunne
Producer of There’s Something About Mary, Dumb & Dumber, and Hall Pass, Peter Farrelly with wife Melinda Kocsis
The Fresh Prince of Bel Air‘s Alfonso Ribeiro
Rules of Engagement‘s Patrick Warburton. He’s also the voice of Joe Swanson on Family Guy, my favorite show in the world
Basketball Player, Larry Sanders (Milwaukee Bucks)
Hip hop Artist and Actor, Common
J.B. Smoove and Seinfeld writer Larry David
KISS’ Gene Simmons and Shannon Tweed
Wayne Brady with daughter Maile Masako
Andy Dick and his middle finger
Jackass‘ Preston Lacy and Dave England
Skating Legend Tony Hawk
So many more celebrities attended this star studded event, I just stopped shooting as this was star overdose for me already. Jeff Ross overdose too. I didn’t want to sleep and dream about Jeff Ross. The A-Listers Richard Gere, Hugh Jackman, Halle Berry and company were noticeably absent so fans who were wanting to see them were probably disappointed but then the number of B-, C-, and D-Listers who attended may have compensated that for some. For me, it was a really fun night. I think seeing Joe Swanson in person was the highlight as I’m a huge Family Guy fan.
Please don’t forget to watch Movie 43! Now Showing!
Please don’t forget to watch The Burn with Jeff Ross as well! —>Says Jeff Ross.
Rise of the Guardians Red Carpet Premiere
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.
