Wow, what a busy night… First covering Miss Universe events then Stephanie’s Magazine release and then the Movie premiere of the Takers. I love my job!
The red carpet outside of Lagasse’s Stadium for this premiere was huge! The press was out in full force to cover it, photographers and video crews all shoulder to shoulder out in the Vegas heat. Yay!
But dwarfing the press was the fans! 100’s of them filled the sidewalk as they waited patiently for the arrivals of the Takers cast and other celebrities to walk the carpet. Due to the amount of fans and the friendliness of all the stars signing autographs, this carpet was one of the longer ones, lasting from 10:30 to midnight.
So whats the movie about?
A group of professional bank robbers (Michael Ealy, Chris Brown, Hayden Christensen, Paul Walker, Idris Elba) who specialize in spectacular robberies, are pulled into one last job by a recently paroled cohort (T.I) only to be pitted against a hard-boiled detective (Matt Dillon) who interrupts their heist.
The Takers is due to be released in theaters on August 27th.
