Red Carpet Premier...ABDUCTION
Last night some co workers and I got to go to Gruman's Chinese theater to see the Premier of Abduction starring Taylor Lautner. A thriller centered on a young man who sets out to uncover the truth about his life after finding his baby photo on a missing persons website.
We got the passes from work. It was Myself,Holly, Sean and Seans girlfriend Julia.
Our company helped with the product placement of the Aprilia Shiver that he rides in the movie. They really did a great job showcasing our bike. In the scenes of his bedroom they had a lot of aprilia posters in the background and even on his computer monitor. We even met a guy in the elevator we were having small talk with at the after party who said he wanted to buy that bike..The Aprilia..ofcourse we let him know where his local dealer was.
When we walked up to the theater there was a MOB of people and screaming girls ( screaming at Taylor and Justin Bieber and Selena Gomez) ..they were telling people they had to step back..except for us we got right through the gates.
We got in and on the counter tops at the concession stand were a bunch of sodas and bags of popcorn complimentary for the guests. Our seats were pretty good too.
Bunch of people mingling int the theater aisles. There was some pretty fancy formal wear going on and the theater is just stunning. Small though.
waiting and waiting for the movie to start. We got to talking to some peopleand a lot of the people were from Lionsgate but there was these two girls in front of us and they were from Australia and they said that they were giving away passes on the streets to random people to see the movie so the girls said they feel way under dressed in their flip flops and tennis shoes but they said they were not going to refuse.
They finally got everyone seated and before the movie the director John Singleton was speaking. He then introduced the actors. I wish I got better pictures..you may need to click on them to see them bigger.
Michael Nyqvist.. he was the main guy from The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo movies
Sigourney Weaver..She walked past us outside after the movie..she is SO TALL and very Chic
and Taylor Lautner..I know bad picture. ofcourse a bunch of screaming girls were given passes to see the movie and when he was standing up they were screaming like CRAZY saying I LOVE U TAYLOR, MARRY ME TAYLOR..we were praying oh pleaseeeeee don't let them do this the whole time!
Exiting the movie. I thought the movie was not so bad. It kept me entertained and I was totally into it but some parts it just skipped to fast by and the next thing you know you are asking the person next to you..Ok what just happened??
We decided to hang out front for a little bit and check out the other actors. We saw Taylor Lautner being escorted out by 5 big giant body guards. He is soooo little and look like a VERY young kid. It is crazy cause in the Twilight movies playing Jacob he looks gigantic and even in this movie he looks pretty big..last night seeing him he just looked like some little young teenage guy ( well which he is practically) but it could have been all those security guards just making him look smaller. Oh by the way look My feet are a perfect fit to Natalie woods!!
Sean and Julia looking Dapper
Sean's feet ..just about the same as Jacks
Us gals..after this we headed out to the after party
The after party was at Drais at the W hotel in Hollywood. WOW this place was amazing! Outside they had these cabanas filled with champagne and inside were the bars..which were open Full bars..COSMO PLEASE and make it snappy. The pool had ABDUCTION glowing from it and they also had the movie playing on the side of the building.
There were appetizers being walked around, music playing, lots of people having a good time
On the roof top!
It was so packed I was afraid of accidentally falling in the pool
So I will just sit right here..We were two cabanas away from Taylor
I was wondering who was up in that private area?? At some point they had live music performing some of the tracks from the movie.
You can kinda see the city in the background.
Oh look who was by us! Recognize a familiar face in the mix? We wanted to go up and meet him but there was way too many people mobbing him plus it was late and it was time for us to go home since we all had to be at work bright and early.
What a beautiful hotel! See if we didn't have to work the next day I could have partied til dawn here. I mean OPEN BAR, Free Food, handsome men and lovely ladies..I really need to go to more parties like this..It really makes me miss when I used to help with marketing/entertainment/party planning field work. I really got to get back into that line of work. I miss the networking and of course the fun!
