For all you fans of the 90’s TV show Fresh Prince of Bel-Air, we hate to break it to you, but any ideas of a Will Smith and friends television reunion on NBC are out of the question. At least that is the case according to Alfonso Ribeiro, one of the co-stars of the show. Read More
ShowBizCafe.com was one of the three Hispanic outlets invited to the exclusive red carpet premiere of ‘Warm Bodies’ in New York City. There I got to catch up with the main cast and director, as well as spot a few other celebrities invited to the screening such as Tony Danza and Gabourey Sidibe, best known for her role in the movie ‘Precious’.
‘Warm Bodies’ from director Jonathan Levine is about a Zombie named R (Nicholas Hoult) who falls in love with a human, Julie (Teresa Palmer), which changes the rules in both of their worlds and might help calm the chaos of the apocalypse.Read More
Wednesday night, ShowBizCafe.com had the pleasure of attending the ‘Men in Black 3’ New York Premiere, and what could very well be described as the best after party of 2012 and perhaps the best party – period – in the Hollywood industry in years.
The red carpet was held at the Ziegfeld theater in Manhattan, considered by this editor to be the best theater in New York. The entire cast showed up, including helmer Barry Sonnenfeld and Latino rapper Pitbull, who raps the theme song of the film. Will Smith, with his large cast of fellow actors, thanked the “Big Apple” for their support and introduced the 3D presentation.
After the screening, we were transported on a shuttle bus to the post premiere party aboard the aircraft carrier Intrepid Sea, Air & Space Museum, which served all types od delicious food and drinks. Moreover, there were fireworks provided by the Grucci group that lasted about 25 minutes, which then gave way to, not one, but two musical performances with rappers Pitbull, and Will Smith and his family, including a reunion with DJ Jazzy Jeff. Pitbull played all his hits like International Love and the MIB3 theme song, and Smith went old school with songs like Summertime and the original and catchy MIB track.
Celebrities like boy band sensation One Direction, Spike Lee, Ethan Cohen and Michael Shannon were on hand to catch the performances of what was an unforgettable night.
I don’t know how much Sony spent putting this night together, but whatever it was, this one is going into the – “Remember that MIB3 party 20 years ago? Nothing like it!” -memory banks.
To get a sense of what we experienced, check out below some of the photographs and videos we took at the premiere and after party. Just insane!
Robert De Niro and Al Pacino arrived at the New York red carpet premiere of their new film ‘Righteous Kill‘ at the renown Ziegfeld Theater in Manhattan. The two superstars and iconic figures posed for what seemed hours to the hysterical paparazzi. Colombian actor John Leguizamo was in hand along with director Jon Avnet. Donnie Wahlberg, member of the newly reunited New Kids On the Block, took time out of his world tour to attend as well.
The films premise revolves around two teteran New York City police detectives on the trail of a vigilante serial killer in the adrenaline fueled psychological thriller Righteous Kill, directed by Jon Avnet (Red Corner, Fried Green Tomatoes) and written by Russell Gewirtz (Inside Man). The cast also features hip-hop superstar Curtis “50 Cent” Jackson (Get Rich or Die Tryin’).
