I pre-scheduled a post to go “live” Saturday morning to let everyone know that I was heading of Los Angeles for a few days for a couple of press junkets. I never realized that the post failed to go “live”. Ugh! Sorry about that.
I’m still in California. I’ll be home Tuesday night. I’m hoping to get back into blogging and telling you all about the trip on Wednesday as I’m sure I’ll be super tired when I get back to New York.
I am having an amazing time. I cannot wait to tell everyone about it.
So far we’ve seen a screener of a movie that doesn’t come out until 2012. We also had the Real Steel press junket where we got to meet and interview the writer, director and producers of Real Steel, actor Anthony Mackie (he was hysterical!), boxing legend Sugar Ray Leonard and super hottie Hugh Jackman (he’s just as gorgeous in person and incredibly nice!). Some where in the Four Seasons Hotel where the press junket was held was George Clooney and Ryan Gossling who were there for a press junket for their new movie, The Ides of March.
The photo shown above are two of the robots used in the movie, Real Steel. They purple one (Noisy Boy) is over eight feet tall! The other Robot is Atom.
Today we’re heading over to Walt Disney Studios for a bit, then we’re going over to Jim Henson Studios for a Muppet Movie press junket. That is going to be a lot of fun. I cannot wait.
I have so much to share with everyone. Sadly I can’t do it now because I have to get ready to leave soon. I also need to transcribe some of the audio files I have from the interviews. That is going to take me a bit.
I hope everyone is having a great week. I”ll post again soon.
