‘King’ crew floats on rocking groove

Bernal pic's explosive preem packs a punch

Guests at a screening for the Gael Garcia Bernal-starrer “The King” needed a stiff drink Sunday night after the pic’s Cannes preem: During the screening, booming fireworks went off along the Croisette causing guests of the film to speculate that the Riviera was under attack.

Safe and sound, the “King’s” subjects headed over to the Big Eagle Yacht to soothe their psyches. But kicking back was not on the menu as Sex Pistols mastermind Malcolm McLaren stepped behind the wheels of steel to craft a seaside soundtrack. Choice cuts had those in the know in music-nerd-nirvana (Sam the Sham and the Pharohs, “96 Tears” by Question Mark and the Mysterians and — what else?!? — the Pistols.) The rest got busy in bare feet to some of McLaren’s mind-bending mash-ups.

Floating fete drew a top shelf crew, including Endeavor’s John Lesher, Cinetic’s John Sloss and Micah Green, ContentFilm’s Ed Pressman and John Schmidt, IFC’s Sarah Lash and ICM’s Shaun Reddick and Renee Tab.
