A Few Best Men in Sydney
Tonight was the night for the Australian premiere of A Few Best Men in Sydney. Event Cinemas Bondi Junction was the stage for the premiere of Australian film director and screenwriter Stephan Elliott’s latest movie.
A very grassy red carpet was rolled out for a lot of stars from the film to parade on. As most premieres only have one or two stars attending, there were plenty around tonight as no less than 8 actors and the director came out to Sydney today to promote the film.
Olivia Newton-John, who plays the mother of the bride in the film, definitely was the main star on the red carpet tonight. Unfortunately she didn’t spend much time signing for the fans that showed up to see her and was rushed past the fans to the media and photographers. On top of that, it was unfortunate to see that some of the media abused their powers and got to pose with some of the actors rather than being professional and give the fans their time with actors.
On a good note, some of the actors, especially Xavier Samuel (Twilight: Eclipse, Bait, Anonymous) and director Stephan Elliott (The Adventures of Priscilla, Queen of the Desert, Easy Virtue, Eye of the Beholder) spend a lot of time with the fans and Xavier even returned back to the fans that missed out on him earlier when he was done with the media. The other boys, Kris Marshall (Death at a Funeral, Love Actually), Kevin Bishop (The Kevin Bishop Show, Muppet Treasure Island) and Tim Draxl (Tangle 2, The Shark Net, Swimming Upstream) also had a great time with everyone that showed up to see them, laughing, posing and signing lots of autographs.
Laura Brent (The Chronicles of Narnia: The Voyage of the Dawn Treader) was full of smiles on the red carpet, very polie and also enjoying her time with fans.
Other guests that walked the red carpet tonight included Home and Away’s Jessica Tovey & Conrad Coleby, Nathaniel Dean (Wild Boys), Jessica McNamee (Packet to the Rafters), Tottie Goldsmith, Tahyna Tozzi and Malcolm Turnbull.
Olivia Newton-John (Grease), Xavier Samuel, Kris Marshall, Kevin Bishop, Rebel Wilson (Bridesmaids), Tim Draxl, Laura Brent, Stephan Elliott, Elizabeth Debecki (The Great Gatsby).
When English lad David announces he is getting married to an Australian, his hapless mates give a whole new meaning to the phrase ‘for better or worse’! The chaos-filled wedding day tests their new marriage, challenges David’s relationships with his three best men, and risks turning what should be the best day of their lives into the worst. A Few Best Men is a hilarious culture clash between his friends and her family – because blood is thicker than water, and so are David’s mates!
Rebel Wilson, Olivia Newton-John, Xavier Samuel, Kevin Bishop, Kris Marshall, Elizabeth Debicki, Laura Brent, Tim Draxl, Steve Le Marquand and more.
A Few Best Men will be in Australian cinemas from January 26, 2012.
