All aboard at ‘3:10 to Yuma’ premiere

Big industry turnout for Russell Crowe western

For a late August unspooling, Tuesday’s National Theater preem for “3:10 to Yuma” got an unusually strong industry turnout.

Among those out to see James Mangold’s first pic since “Walk the Line” were Jim Gianopoulos, Michael Mann, Mark Gill, David Permut, Neal Moritz and Jim Wiatt with new WMA hire Ed Limato.

Lionsgate topper Jon Feltheimer said the reason for the gritty Western’s release date is simple: (We wanted) to create some distance before Russell Crowe’s ‘American Gangster.’ ”

At the Ago after-party, Relativity Management’s Ryan Kavanaugh said the pic’s Sept 7 release date has historically been perceived as “difficult” but thinks it won’t matter with this pic.

“This is a film that plays broad,” said Kavanaugh. “Making a Western is against the rules, so why not go all the way?”
