Transformer Premiere Anybody?? Only $25!!!

I just ran across this:

Film Independent announced today that DreamWorks Pictures and Paramount Pictures’ highly anticipated summer blockbuster “TRANSFORMERS” will have its Los Angeles premiere at the 2007 Los Angeles Film Festival on Wednesday, June 27. One of the largest film premieres of its kind to take place in Los Angeles and open to the public, “TRANSFORMERS” will be screened simultaneously in four Westwood Village theaters with a seating of 4,000.

The red-carpet premiere will be followed by a massive block party – which is open to anyone who attends one of the film’s four screenings – on the Festival Promenade on Broxton Avenue.

Directed by Michael Bay, “TRANSFORMERS” stars Shia LaBeouf, Tyrese Gibson, Josh Duhamel, Anthony Anderson, Megan Fox, Rachael Taylor, with John Turturro and Jon Voight.

“Fans have been waiting for this movie for years,” said Festival Director, Rich Raddon. “I’m excited that, through the Festival, the public can be a part of this anticipated premiere, not to mention the after-party that will take place in the streets of Westwood.”

“TRANSFORMERS” is the ultimate L.A. movie, with many of its most exciting action sequences shot on the city’s streets,” said the film’s producer Lorenzo di Bonaventura. “The Los Angeles Film Festival is the perfect venue to launch this film.”

In “TRANSFORMERS,” aliens make Earth their final battleground. As the forces of evil seek the key to ultimate power, our last chance for survival rests in the hands of young Sam Witwicky (Shia LaBeouf). “TRANSFORMERS” will be released nationwide on July 4, 2007.

Tickets to the “TRANSFORMERS” premiere are $25 and can be obtained now by purchasing a pass to this year’s Festival. Any single tickets remaining will be sold beginning June 8 by calling 866.FILM.FEST (866.345.6337) or on our website, Screenings will take place at The Landmark Regent Theatre, the Mann National Theatre, the Mann Bruin Theatre, and the Mann Village Theatre, with the main premiere taking place at the Mann National Theatre.

As previously announced, Academy Award®-winning actor and filmmaker Clint Eastwood will receive this year’s Spirit of Independence Award on Thursday, June 28 at a special event sponsored by Target. Kasi Lemmons’ Talk to Me (Focus Features) will kick off the Festival as the Opening Night film on Thursday, June 21 at 7:30 p.m. at the Mann Village Theatre. Danny Boyle’s Sunshine (Fox Searchlight Pictures) will serve as the Closing Night film on Sunday, July 1 at 7:00 p.m. at the Wadsworth Theatre.

I'd be up for a good giant robot movie. 25 bucks is just 10 more bucks than we paid for Ghost Rider. As long as it doesn't conflict with seeing SURF'S UP

HA! Good one Ellis. Anybody else??? Maybe Scott??? (MIA)

Davis Chino said...

I would love to go. And I would love Scott to come along, too.

And how about those other San Diegans? Tommy, Dok, Jeff Jonas and friends--"C'MON SAN DIEGO--SHOW ME YOUR OPTIMUS PRIME!!"

Actually, I have no familiarity with this "franchise," and had to look at the official website to cull that specific character name, (it was chosen over "Scorponok").

I'll have to pass... if it was on a Saturday I might drive down, but not during the work week.

Besides, I'll need to take my son to this one... he's going to go NUTS for this. I am a little concerned though... anyone know what the rating is in this one?

It looks like a hyper grownup movie for baby boomers who remember the franchise to the extreme. Kids will get taken along, of course, but just the previews looked too over the top in some ways for my six year old ... I think there is a movement afoot to have the Midnight Club 4 team get taken by management to see the film ... I hope so. Ticket, popcorn, and drink at the theater these days exceeds the legal one time take-out limit from most ATMs ... boo hoo.

Jeff said...

Yeah I was thinking about taking my 6-year-old but I think it might be too loud. It is a Michael Bay movie after all.
