Col TriStar, Phoenix preem pic in Westwood
Col TriStar and Phoenix Pictures preemed horror thriller “Urban Legends” in Hollywood at the Westwood Village Theater on Thursday. Afterward, a few hundred guests (which seemed a few hundred too many for the fire marshal, who restricted entry almost after the first guest arrived) sashayed over to the Westwood Brewing Co. for a post-screening bash. On hand were pic’s stars, Jared Leto, Michael Rosenbaum, Robert Englund, Loretta Devine and Alicia Witt. Also seen were Mike Medavoy of Phoenix Pictures, Col exec Chris Lee and guests Gabriel Byrne, Rae Dawn Chong, Tori Spelling and Dina Meyer. Producer Neal Moritz said, “I wanted to make a movie that would really, really, really scare people. Hopefully everybody will look in the backseat of the car when they leave the screening.”
On this occasion, the scariest thing was the fire marshal.
