Just last Monday I had the pleasure of attending the World Premiere of Marvel’s ANT-MAN at the world famous Dolby Theatre in Hollywood, CA! Not only did I get to walk the red carpet, but I got to bring my handsome husband with me!
Walking the red carpet is an exhilarating experience. You aren’t just walking passed the fans, you are walking with the stars. As we stepped onto the red carpet, my husband and I spotted Michael Douglas. He was only a few feet away from us. He looked dapper in his suit! After he took a photo in front of the “Ant-Man” backdrop he was whisked away to the reports.
Across the street from the Dolby Theatre is the El Capitan Theatre. Just last week my mother and sister took our daughter to see Inside Out! On the screen you can see them interviewing the stars LIVE… if I am not mistaken that is Director Peyton Reed on the screen!
We also saw Michael Pena, Chris Daughtry and Karan Brar on the red carpet. Karan was kind and took a selfie with me! Wow…I felt like a star!
At the end of the red carpet, before heading up the steps, we had the opportunity to take a photo next to the Ant-Man suit!
We walked up the steps (AKA: the Oscar steps) and into the Dolby Theatre. Unfortunately they took my phone, so I wasn’t able to take photos inside. We got amazing seats…2nd row in the center.
Inside we took a look around and there were STARS sitting all around us. Before the show started they had the talent lined up on the stage. Cheers rang out for everyone! When they walked down the steps towards their seat they walked right passed us. My husband and I could have reached out and touched them… but of course we didn’t (we would have been kicked out).
Everyone looked amazing! You could see on their face how proud they were of this movie.
Who is Ant-Man? Where is Ant-Man?
Scott Lang (played by Paul Rudd) just finished serving his time in jail for robbing the rich. His one wish in his new found freedom is to become a better father to his daughter, but it’s hard to find a job when you have a record. It doesn’t take Scott long to fall back into his old ways. In doing so he meets Dr. Hank Pym (played by Michael Douglas).
Dr. Hank Pym has a secret… he holds the secret behind the Ant-Man. His technology has been desired by the government for years, but Dr. Pym refused to allow it to get into the wrong hands. He built his own company which is now run by his daughter, Hope van Dyne (played by Evangeline Lilly), and his protegee Darren Cross aka Yellowjacket (played by Corey Stoll). Darren Cross is in the process of mimicking Dr. Pym’s research, and he will stop at NOTHING to succeed.
Dr. Pym puts his trust in Scott Lang, master thief… hoping that he will embrace his inner hero and pull of a heist that will save the world.
The show was AMAZING! Ant-Man is action packed and a perfect addition to the Marvel movies. Make sure you stay for the entire movie, as in Marvel tradition, there are TWO clips at the end of the film.
