FishbowlLA Contest Winners Hang with A-List Immortals

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!!”

Hollywood Veteran Named Head of WWE Studios

Hollywood veteran Michael Luisi was named the new president of WWE Studios, replacing Mike Pavone, who resigned from the company in August.

Luisi joined the WWE in January as executive vice president and general counsel. One of his goals as the new head of WWE Studios is to release six to eight films annually — up from four movies this year and two in 2010.

Plus, WWE won’t always feature their talent in starring roles, which should give projects more credibility for non-wrestling fans.

Luisi’s first project is No One Lives, a horror flick featuring Luke Evans and WWE wrestler Brodus Clay.

While the WWE have thrived for decades in the sports entertainment world, they have struggled to succeed in Hollywood. According to the Los Angeles Times, WWE Studios made just $400,000 profit last year.

Luisi has his work cut out for him to say the least.
