April 16th, 2012.
Ah... *American Pie*. Released in 1999 and quickly followed by an opportunistic sequel two years later, then a third instalment ("American Wedding") in 2003 (thank you, IMDB). And now it's been nine years, and, well... let's just say Jason Biggs, Sean William Scott and most of the cast have been cruelly snubbed by The Academy in many of their film exploits since. Still... each film (even the last one) made $200million or so worldwide and the lack of fame of the stars outside the franchise means you can (presumably) get them back fairly cheaply...?
So.... cue 2012 and a fourth instalment of the franchise, "American Reunion". And there's a premiere for it. Would anybody show up, though? (counter-question : how many of them have anyplace BETTER to be?)
Here's how it went down:
So... that was another one. Given the lack of a red carpet, OR publicity for this premiere, it was a rather amazing attendance from cast members. It was also over very quickly, and started very late (hence the grain-o-riffic ISO 1600 I was sporting).
Up next.... a little film called "The Avengers". Have you heard of it?
Until then, it's another entry into "The Archive of Move Premieres"
And if you ever want to know when I post one of these journals (which I can almost fully guarantee will be considerably smaller than this gargantuan one!), feel free to follow me on twitter @berndt2_photo, or on facebook at premieresdotco.
