So, even though I am on my sickbed, CB was insisting I take him to the movies. Sigh… Actually, even though I feel like crap, I just can’t stay in the house anymore! It’s been days! No fanboying, just lying on the couch watching True Blood! I know that might sound like fun, but trust me being sick is no fun. It comes with mucus, and sniffles, and back pain, and on and on and on…
Anyway, tonight the cast of The Artist is doing a rare Q and A with Berenice Bejo,
James Cromwell, Penelope Ann Miller, Missi Pyle, and Writer/Director Michel Hazanavicius. Now, I haven’t seen The Artist yet so I was eager to check it out, plus I have this mini poster…
It’s almost like those are ominous words… Mini poster… Maybe just in my house… lol… Truth be told, I’m a huge Adventures in Babysitting fan and I’ve been wanting to meet Penelope Ann Miller for a long time. I have an original video poster for Adventures in Babysitting I already have Elisabeth Shue on and I can always go for the cast right? lol…
Also Missi Pyle is one of my favorites from so many movies but especially Galaxy Quest! Anyway, off we go….
CB got there early and so we were able to get right up front. These screenings are for SAG members and a guest so I had to come to get CB in. I’ve heard amazing things about The Artist so I’m hoping it will live up to it.
So, the film was really good. It was interesting to see a silent film in todays day and age and Berenice Bejo was stunning…. Really, stunning… I also thought that Jean Dujardin was pretty damn impressive as well. The cast was awesome all of them. The film itself I found a little long, and it wasn’t a new story really. It’s not that I didn’t like it, because I really did, but I guess so many people had talked it up to me I was expecting something to blow me away and it didn’t.
Don’t hate me.
After the film they announced that Missi Pyle was unable to attend. I’m bummed. Ah well…
The Q and A is commencing. The cast really fell in love with this project you can tell. Everyone is very open and talking about how they had no idea what this was going to be.
James Cromwell who I think is amazing is so eloquent and described getting the script as receiving a spiral bound book. lol…
Check out the video from the Q and A below!
I was bracing for the onslaught of actors running on stage after The Help screening craziness but this one was a tad more relaxed.
I was able to talk to Penelope Ann Miller first and whipped out my Adventures in Babysitting poster. Penelope said, “Oh my God, My first movie!” I would have liked to chat more with her but I didn’t have much of a voice and I didn’t want to scare anyone. lol…
Penelope was super sweet and I was able to get a photo with her as well..
Then I saw that all the actors were on the stage so I went up on stage and waited for the director of the film Michel Hazanavicus. He was so nice and greeting everyone there. CB got his poster signed and then I had Michel sign my poster as well… He was super nice.
Then I was able to wait and meet Berenice Bejo. She is super sweet, I mean like greeting every person she sees… so sweet. I was able to get her to sign my mini poster and also got a photo with her as well.
Finally, I went over to Mr. James Cromwell. I have been a huge six feet under fan for years and so I was ecstatic to meet Mr. Cromwell.
I didn’t have anything for him to sign this time so I just got a photo. Sadly, I look horrible so it’s never going to see the light of day, lol…
Still, it was a wonderful night, and I’m so grateful to the cast for being so gracious.
Check out The Artist in theatres now and let me know what you think of the film below!!
