Ah, Cloud Atlas… Now, this is a movie I’ve been curious about for some time. I knew that the premiere would either be an awesome success or a lovely addition in the long line of Fanboy Fails. Seeing as this is indeed Fanboy Fail Friday, I think you can guess as to what happened. Doh!
There was a lot of promise in this premiere I mean Tom Hanks, Halle Berry, Hugh Grant, Jim Broadbent and more you would think it would have been at least moderately decent. Well… It never ceases to amaze me how honestly some stars thing that they are too good for their fans.
4:01 p.m. – I just arrived. Billy was the early bird here and saved us some spots. Now, he’s a little sensitive about his spot choice since CB gave him grief earlier in the day. We are a tad to the right of drop offs which honestly can be good and bad. You just never know.
4:12 p.m. – There aren’t that many people here considering. I expected a much larger crowd.
4:34 p.m. – The carpet is pretty basic, nothing that crazy, lol..
4:41. p.m. – I’m trying to convince Billy we need to make signs. You have to do what you have to do!
4:45 p.m. – Billy’s not a bad sign maker, lol…
4:49 p.m. – Aww Batman and the Joker are hanging out. I’m glad to see they’ve patched up their differences.
5:09 p.m. – There is a giant group of Asian tourists, or a school group standing behind us. LOL… God bless them.
5:31 p.m. – The carpet starts at 6:00 so I’m hoping this will start to get going soon. I really want Hugh Grant. I’ve been wanting him to sign a few things forever!
5:34 p.m. – The Other Mike is here. He just said that he has his hands on the pulse of the nation. LOL… So, Billy is checking to make sure that The Other Mike actually has a pulse. LOL… We were talking about the upcoming election. Sigh, I just wish it was over. Man oh man.
6:01 p.m. – It looks like this are starting to happen. Well, not happen but the press and publicists are getting into position.
6:03 p.m. – Scotty finally arrived.
6:09 p.m. – First arrivals…. It’s Andy Wachowski! Everyone is calling him over. He’s hesitating but people are persisting. Tom Tykwer and Lana Wachowski have also arrived.
6:12 p.m. – After some camel prodding all three come over.
First in our section is Run Lola Run director Tom Tykwer!
I’m actually really excited to meet Tom Tykwer. I loved Run Lola Run and have a mini poster for him. Tom was really excited to see it and was like, “Now that one is for me!”
Tom Tykwer also signed my Cloud Atlas mini poster as well.
Then Lana Wachowski runs over. She is adorable and sweet. I swear she is trying to get as many people as possible.
She signs my Cloud Atlas mini poster.
We try to get Andy but he apologizes as he gets taken across the street! Doh!
6:14 p.m. – There’s Jim Broadbent!
We yell for him and he comes right on over to us.
He signs my Cloud Atlas mini poster, and I told him how much I loved him in Moulin Rouge! Because It’s one of my all time favorites! He said, “thank you so much!”
6:17 p.m. – Scotty is kicking himself for not bringing his Harry Potter poster for him. Doh…
6:22 p.m. – Keanu Reeves is here. Everyone is calling for him. I think it’s nice he came to support the Wachowski’s!
6:31 p.m. – Susan Sarandon has just pulled up. We yell for her, we wave our sign and a truck pulled up right in front of Billy and I!!! It’s preventing Susan from coming over to us. So instead she starts three people down from us and we miss her. Son of a whore!
Dammit! I’m so mad… And Susan signs and signs down the line. Sigh… I’m having the worst luck with her lately.
I missed her at Jeff who lives at home and I miss her at Cloud Atlas… Grumble.
6:42 p.m. – Jim Sturgess has arrived and is coming over.
I hate his mustache. Just saying. Jim is super nice though, and I mean super nice.
He signs and signs. I got him on my Cloud Atlas poster.
6:46 p.m. – There’s Tom Hanks.
He waves and we yell, and yell, and yell, and yell… Finally he turns around and takes video of us and pretends he texting everyone. It seemed so douchey.
Like really dude, your last movie involved a motor scooter and you can’t sign a few autographs. And then to act like a high and mighty jackass… Really Tom Hanks? Really?
6:58 p.m. – There’s Halle Berry!
We all yell and scream, she turns, waves and walks away and waits to get on the carpet.
Total diss. Damn… I thought she would do a few autographs at least. Really? My Lord what is wrong with these guys!
And Hugh Grant was a no show. I swear, this was a washout. Cool about the few people I got, but really? Tom Hanks is supposed to be this “nice guy” an then acts like an ass dissing all the people waiting. I mean, I hate saying negative things about someone but he’s like this all the time and people think he’s a swell guy. Well, let me clue everyone in, Tom Hanks is an ass!
Fanboy Fail! Grumble…
