March 12 End of Day report - Whew, already exhausted.  Saw and said hi to Jason Reitman, who didn’t seem very chatty… darn it.  Went to the KICK-ASS red carpet and talked to stars Aaron Johnson, Christopher Mintz-Plasse, and Clark Duke.  Checked out the PREDATORS presentation with Robert Rodriguez and Nimrod Antal.  And ended the evening at the KICK-ASS after-party, which had names like Jason Reitman (third time I saw him today in passing, still not very chatty), Jonah Hill, Tim Blake Nelson, and Robert Rodriguez in attendance.  Working on my PREDATORS report, but in the meantime, here is the glorious video from the KICK-ASS red carpet.

Devin will have a TUCKER AND DALE VS. EVIL report late Saturday, so check back for that and my write up on PREDATORS.
