I have to tell you, I have had nothing but semi bad experiences with John Cusack. I mean he’s just not that fan friendly a guy. Today was The Raven premiere and even though I’m told John signs and signs at premiere’s I didn’t go because, well… I had stuff to do. LOL… I need John but he has other events coming up. Anyway, CB headed out and decided to see what this Raven stuff was all about…
Check out his report from the premiere below! I feel like I should have an Edgar Allen Poe reference in here but I just can’t think of a good one… Doh!
Deh-shay, bah-sah-rah, Deh-shay bah-sah-rah! So Billy Beer sends me a text yesterday and asks me if I was going to The Raven premiere to which I replied, I’m not sure, Mike says John Cusack is horrible. Then Billy Beer says, Alice Eve, and I say, I’m THERE! I wasn’t sure I even wanted to go, but the movie had Luke Evans who is super nice. Going on the strength of how nice Luke is, I made the pilgrimage to the premiere. I had planned on mainly two people, Luke and Alice. If John came over, I would only have two things for him, but I kinda wasn’t expecting him to come over and sign. Boy, was I wrong! So I gather my stuff and head to the premiere!
I arrive and the venue is TINY! It’s so small they don’t really have a place for us to stand, but security makes a fan pit right on the carpet. I mean literally, we are on the carpet.
Okay, security has now moved us a few feet away in front of a tree. Ehh, it’s still not that bad. We patiently wait for the premiere to start, and then suddenly, we get two drops. It is Luke Evans and the director, James McTeigue.
Both come over at the same time, Luke gets one section and James another. James doesn’t sign much, but I get him on my cast photo.
Luke Evans signs his life away. I knew he was super cool, but he gets everyone!
The next person to arrive was John Cusack.
Now, for those who don’t know, Mike has made several mentions of how bad John is and today, I can report with joy and glee, he was the nicest person there! He drops, we chant for him and he hugs people. Of course we think he is ignoring us, wrong! He points that he is coming to us, and signs his life away.
He goes up the barricade, and signs coming back. I get my Hot Tub Time Machine and The Raven photos signed within seconds then just watch him go to town.
The dude was AMAZING! I even saw him do a photo op or two.
We then spot Sam Hazeldine, and we get him to come over.
The last person we needed was Alice Eve. Oh I did love her in She’s out of My League. She is the last person to arrive, and she’s late, always a bad combo, but she comes over.
She signs quickly then leaves.
Billy Beer says to me, “There’s you’re girl” as Krysten Ritter is walking up and I call for her and she comes over. I had nothing, I just wanted the photo with her and she obliged. Billy got one too!
The premiere was awesome. It was beyond any expectation I had. John Cusack was hyper nice and Luke Evans was still super cool. Until next time, same CB hour, same CB channel same CB website! KAAAAPPPPPOOOOWWW!
PS. To all my peeps that follow me on this website, my good friend Victor Ukmar was working on a movie and just released the trailer for his movie, DESERT GAMES! It would mean allot to me to have people watch it and share it around as Victor is a good friend and was very dedicated to his project. The video link is down below. CB OUT!
