Director Luc Besson apparently got a budget of $180million to turn a French comic from the 1960s into the largest production ever for a French film. And cast an English Model and an American actor best known as an almost-Spiderman main villain in the lead. So I believe he's entitled to be called even more brave than I was for getting a late wristband to a premiere with pop Megastar Rihanna set to attend.
Plus they made a special pen for young/pretty people facing the Paparazzi so the stars would be photographed against a "fan assortment" backdrop. How did I fare in that equation? Umm... about as expected.
Here's how it went down:
So, that was an enjoyable, if noisy and more than usually crowded (on- and off-carpet) premiere. I'm not sure how high on my list of must-see movies it is, but perhaps in the right (vodka-assisted) frame of mind I'll check it out.
Until next time!
