I wanted to call this the “Trouble With The Curve Red Carpet Premiere”, but then it wasn’t a red carpet that was laying there. Instead, it’s green to match the color of a baseball field. This film revolves around baseball after all. Cool, isn’t it?
Today we’re at the Regency Village Theater in Westwood. It’s my first time here so I gotta look around first to see which area is the best spot for shooting. There are less people here compared to the premieres held at Grauman’s Theater, mainly because Grauman’s Theater is right in the heart of Hollywood where tourists are all over. This place is a little farther west (ahh so that’s why it’s called “Westwood”?!) This theater is near UCLA as well so if you’re a Bruin this place is no stranger to you. I see a pretty good spot in the middle. Okay ready to go.
First to arrive… John Goodman.
He’s been in so many movies and TV shows but the one that’s really printed on my mind was his role as Fred Flinstone on The Flintstones. I loved that when I was a kid. It’s nice to see Fred here! Yabba dabba doo!!!
Right after Fred… I mean John Goodman is the living legend and the star of the movie, Mr. Clint Eastwood.
Now I can tell my dad and all my uncles and grandpas that I saw Dirty Harry in person. I got street creds with the elderly mwahaha.
Clint waves and smiles to the people waiting but doesn’t walk towards the crowd to sign autographs and take pictures with them which, to me, is totally fine. The man’s been on the scene forever, he’s in his 80’s and still working, let him decide whatever he wants to do. He’s the law. He IS Clint Eastwood. To everyone who’s waiting for an autograph, I know you’re disappointed but don’t fret. Seeing him in person is already a big honor.
I myself wanted a picture with Clint, even if it’s like this…
Or maybe not haha. That’s from the movie How To Lose Friends And Alienate People, by the way (I LOVE Simon Pegg!)
He’s on an Escalade…
And he’s bringing Sexyback…
Sir Justin Timberlake!!!
He’s a really nice guy! He signs for everyone in the crowd. Doesn’t take pictures though, perhaps to speed things up. I gotta say, this man’s got a lot of sex appeal!
And here’s a little video…
Now we have an Olympic gold medalist with us, swimmer Tyler Clary.
Looking stunning in her red dress is Amy Adams.
Doesn’t look very comfortable though. You want me to cut it for you, Amy?!
We saw Fred Flintstone a while ago, now we see Shaggy from Scooby Doo! Matthew Lillard!
It’s a YABBA DABBA SCOOBY DOOBY DOO day!!!
Uhh, Matthew, are you signing with your hand and with your mouth at the same time?!
Abadee abadee abadee a that’s all folks! See you again on the next red carpet premiere!
Remakes always draw comparison to the original no matter how producers try to avoid it, I still haven’t watched this so I can’t say much just yet. For now, let’s compare the trailers…
1990 TRAILER WITH ARNOLD SCHWARZENEGGER
2012 TRAILER WITH COLLIN FARRELL
I kinda choose the original over the remake (as in most of the time) and I’m an Arnold fan so I’ve made my decision, a biased one haha. What’s yours? The new one’s still pretty cool though.
Alright let’s get started. Smile guys, you’re on camera!
You’re gonna be on TV tomorrow!
The celebs aren’t here yet. Let’s spot some interesting stuff. Let me see what my camera finds… aah that’s a nice one…
It’s a Stormtrooper! Wait, what? What is this, Star Wars? I see three of these guys here. Maybe the soldiers on this film look like them.
Let’s look for something more…
Yeah. That fits better. Colin Farrell’s picture ready to be signed. That guy holding it is probably gonna sell it later haha.
Here we go, celebrity arrivals…
Wave to fans, sign autographs, then go straight to the press for the interviews…
John Cho is here! He’s very well known from the Harold and Kumar films but if you remember, he’s also from American Pie, one half of the guys who introduced us to the term, “MILF”!!! MILF! MILF! MILF! And like the rest of the cast, he’s back for American Reunion. Today he’s here for Total Recall of course, but I just feel like shouting “MILF! MILF! MILF!!!”
I’ve seen John before but I didn’t get a good shot, now here’s my chance! Here he is being interviewed by Renee Bargh of Extra!
Bryan Cranston also stops by. He’s most well known for his roles is Malcolm in the Middle and Breaking Bad.
Here comes the beautiful Kate Beckinsale being escorted by husband and executive producer/director of the film, Len Wiseman.
By the way, I just watched Much Ado About Nothing a couple of days ago. She’s so cute there! And I didn’t realize she was Hero until after I saw the film credits. Okay back to present time… she looks so lovely in that beautiful long gown!
And for all you folks, this is how you take a celebrity photo with style!
Another beautiful lady has arrived, no other than Jessica Biel…
I’m not very much into fashion but that gown just looks a bit weird from behind. What do you think?
Is that the one Justin Timberlake gave her? I wish I could get a close up shot of her ring.
Let’s have some more of Kate…
Wait a minute, I can sense an overflowing of coolness in the house… could that be… Aaaah!!! It’s the Godfather of Heavy Metal, Ozzy Osbourne!!!
Wow I didn’t expect that. That’s what I love about movie premieres, there are always surprises. It’s actually a family night out, according to this:
Sometimes I feel like I should really make a Twitter account already.
And now the man of the hour, Colin Farrell!
*Mwah* to everyone!!!
I really hope this movie turns out to be great. I’m highly skeptical, but I hope for the best. Anyways, tonight I’m just happy seeing the stars of the film, especially the gorgeous Kate Beckinsale. I love you Kate! And Jessica Biel as well. I love you too Jessica!
That’s it for tonight folks. But before I go, let’s have one more of Jessica Biel…
Oh she’s busy reading, let’s not disturb her haha. Goodnight and see you guys again soon on the next Red Carpet Premiere!
