His ‘Lucky’ stars

Warner Bros. premiere sparks fan pandemonium

Although Taylor Schilling gets the guy in Warner Bros.’ “The Lucky One,” those people who felt luckiest at Monday’s preem in Hollywood were all the Zac Efron devotees who came out to see their idol.

From the moment he stepped onto the Chinese Theater’s red carpet, fans were screaming for Efron all the way into the theater, leading to a little pandemonium at the start of the film as moviegoers had to rush to find their seats.

At the Boulevard3 after-party, Schilling and director Scott Hicks received plenty of attention, but it was Efron who drew a long a line of people waiting to get close to him as several bodyguards hovered.

Hicks said he felt he was the lucky one when it came to finding a female co-star who could hold her own with Efron’s star presence.

“Anytime you take on Nicholas Sparks’ material, the goal is always to get the right emotional pull without the audience feeling manipulated,” said the helmer. “After picking Taylor, I think we really caught a break in finding someone who gelled so well with Zac onscreen.”
