Quirky was the word at Ryerson Theatre tonight during a Midnight Madness premiere screening of Super by Director James Gunn. The Comedy is about a man who transforms himself into a Superhero after his wife succumbs to the influence of a Drug Dealer. Sounds almost too ridiculous for words!
The film starring The Office's Rainn Wilson, Ellen Page, Kevin Bacon and Liv Tyler brought out a big crowd at the Red Carpet with chants for Ellen Page heard loud and clear. And after seeing Page snub fans last year on a couple occasions at TIFF, she has improved upon her likability factor truly this year. Tonight I saw her personally sign a whole slew of autographs for fans before heading into the theatre where she was met with a big hug by surprise guest Justin Long who called out to her, "Hey! Long time no see!". Pardon the pun. Unfortunately though, Bacon was nowhere in sight, although Wilson offered lots of Red Carpet antics with his crazy self.
Check out these shots I got of Page and some of her Cast Mates below. I nabbed an extra autograph even for one lucky Mr. Will-W.:Pop Maven reader, in addition to having her complete my own Juno Cast Signature Collection! Give me a chance to catch a breather first and I'll let you know how you can win it!
