Ritchie takes a shot

Helmer takes 'Revolver' preem party to Soho club

WHAT: European premiere of Guy Ritchie‘s “Revolver” Sept. 26

WHO: Ritchie and his wife, Madonna; pic’s Jason Statham, Andre Benjamin, Vincent Pastore; plus guests Sting, Trudie Styler and Luc Besson

WHERE: London’s Odeon Leicester Square

NIX CRIX: Dismissing the blood-curdling reviews the pic received after its premiere at the Toronto Film Festival, Ritchie said: “The critics have been rather harsh, but they have been on everything I’ve done so far.” With a glint of hope, he added, “It’s good to be in front of an English crowd — a very intelligent English.”

WHAT GIVES?: For some reason, perhaps known only to Ritchie, the party was held at Irish pub Waxy O’Connor’s in Soho, where guests were served sushi and mojitos, leaving the crowd to ponder whether there was any Kabalistic connection between the pub’s Irish folk band and the surreal gangster world Ritchie created in his movie.
