2 Premieres in one day:"Mr. Magorium`s Wonder Emporium" and "August Rush"-November 11, 2007

The World Premiere of "Mr. Magorium`s Wonder Emporium" starring Dustin Hoffman, Natalie Portman and Jason Bateman. was held at the DGA Theater. Ah, another day with more incredibly STUPID publicity people. Once again,they ask us to RSVP. They knew EXACTLY how many photographers would be showing up. 40 shooters and they give us 2 barricades under scaffolding. We were set up on a slanted sidewalk and the "talent" had to step up on a platform. I wonder what kind of "experiece" one needs to be an entertainment publicist in this city because when it comes to events, they don;t seem to have a clue what they are doing.
Natalie didn't want to pose, nor did she take off her poncho. Dustin Hoffman walked over to some lucky fans and signed autographs, and Jason Bateman looked as cute as always.

Then it was off to the Ziegfield Theater, 3 blocks away for the premiere of "August Rush" starring Keri Russell, Jonathan Rhys Meyers (who looked a little frightened) and Robin Williams. Much better set up
