What do you do when you arrive at a movie premiere (2nd official invite) and realize you forgot to put the batteries back in your camera? I was faced with this dilemma last night at the Atlanta Private Party & Screening of Grudge Match. This was a first for me and I almost went into panic mode… but I put on my big girl panties and used what I had, the iPhone 🙁
TODAY, I bring you photos from the iPhone 5!! Other than my little mishap… the party & screening was a BLAST! The production team had it all set up with complimentary drinks, OMG Booth and gaming lounge for all of us”big kids”. I felt like a real CHAMP trying to box. LOL!
Lots of local celebs came out to support the new film including: Radio Personality, Reality Stars Towanda & Trina Braxton and Kordell Stewart who played for the Pittsburgh Steelers. Kordell’s presence was really cool because the movie is based out of Pittsburgh.
Check out some of the red carpet pics:
And speaking of the movie.. it was REALLY funny but also told a great story of dreams, survival and forgiveness. We all love Kevin Hart and he certainly brought his “A” game with the funny lines. I won’t tell the story but you will happy to see a few surprise appearances too! Be sure to check out this movie DECEMBER 25th – Christmas DAY!!
GRUDGE MATCH Synopsis:
Two retired boxers (Sylvester Stallone and Robert De Niro) decide to settle a long-standing beef by heading back into the ring in this sports comedy from director Peter Segal. Back in the day, Billy “The Kid” McDonnen (De Niro) and Henry “Razor” Sharp (Stallone) were the two biggest bruisers in the Pittsburgh boxing scene. Their fierce rivalry drawing nationwide attention, Razor and The Kid were deadlocked for the title of overall champion when the former announced his retirement just before the decisive 1983 match that would have determined the supreme champion. Three decades later, enterprising boxing promoter Dante Slate Jr. (Kevin Hart) lures the aging pugilists back into the ring for the fight that everyone has been waiting for. Meanwhile, when Razor and The Kid see each other for the first time in 30 years, the cameras are rolling as tempers suddenly flare. In no time that unscheduled scuffle goes viral, prompting both fighters to resume their intensive training in a bid to be the one who delivers the knockout blow during the highly anticipated bout. Alan Arkin, Kim Basinger and Jon Bernthal also costar.
Sending a very SPECIAL thanks to ALLIED for the invite 🙂
