Exactly a week after celebrating the third-year anniversary of a wedding arranged just days before the passing of Prop 8, LA residents Travis and Ian-Mathew attended the November 7 Nokia Theatre premiere and rooftop after-party for the new historical action drama Immortals. They were there as winners of a contest sponsored by this blog. So… how was it?
“I’ve been to many screenings before but never a premiere,” Travis tells FishbowlLA via email. “What a treat. The after-party was even better than I could have hoped for. I thought maybe the stars would be in a roped off VIP area but they were basically hanging around their tables, so that anyone could walk up to them.”
“I told director Tarsem Singh that The Fall was one of my favourite movies,” he continues. “He was very excited that I even knew that film and said, ‘Anyone who is a fan of that movie is a friend of mine!’ We met all the main stars– Henry Cavill, Stephen Dorff, Luke Evans, Kellan Lutz… All of them were SUPER nice!!”
Travis also seems to have the knack for pull quotes. Here’s his “two-second” review of Immortals: “It’s like 300 on steroids; an entertaining, visually satisfying feast with stunning effects and gorgeous cinematography.” We may be biased, but we hereby grant the PR folks at Relativity Media full usage rights for this quote in any upcoming marketing materials.
Although our winners did not get to say hello to Mickey Rourke, his presence was felt in other ways. At one point, the after-party DJ announced that he was playing a Lady Gaga song, but only because the actor had specifically requested it.
