‘Robot’ animates bash

Smith has futuristic theme for film premiere

Gotham’s space-age, upscale eatery Lever House proved a fitting locale for Fox’s post-screening dinner salute to “I, Robot” star/producer Will Smith Wednesday.

Smith admitted to Daily Variety that he had been just “a bit arachnophobic” about competing against Spider-Man. In the end, Smith’s jitters proved unfounded.

Besides Fox film brass, attendees at the sit-down feast included John McEnroe, Tina Brown and Jeffrey Wright. News Corp. scion and COO Lachlan Murdoch also dropped in to pay his respects.
