My 1st Red Carpet: G.I. Joe Japan Premier


I had the opportunity to attend the Japan premier and red carpet of G. I. Joe. I didn’t know what to expect because I forgot what the theme of the cartoon was besides an army, and I remember the action figures. I watched trailers and interviews but I wasn’t sure what to expect from Marlon Wayans. I would have cast Tyrese in the role by default. He seems to always play in films like these.

G.I. Joe premiered the same day as the release in the USA. I got to watch the screener and interview cast on the red carpet at Tokyo’s LaLaPort. I first spoke with Sienna Miller who played Baroness. She was very pleasant. I forgot to ask her about filming in that leather outfit. I definitely want to be her for Halloween! Then the producer Lorenzo di Bonaventura spoke with me. He was so kind and just seemed like a jolly man without Christmas! I was there to film for FOX Backstage Pass and Access E Online. On the carpet, we were flagged to only speak with those two, but after Marlon Wayans passed the first Japanese interviewer and spotted me he said, “Hey! You’re not Asian”! We began talking, and he is definitely a ball of energy and comedy. I laughed the whole time he went down the carpet messing with the other interviewers. I’m definitely looking forward to the next “White Chicks” movie. That had my Grandmom and I rolling! Channing Tatum is fine on and off screen and Rachael Nichols is tall and gorgeous in person. Byung-hun Lee gets all the love in Asia! Now that is a handsome dude!

I was pleasantly surprised by the movie. I expected the action, great CG and fighting. There was non-stop action though and my eyeballs were hurting. I wanted to blink but couldn’t. I thought the movie was funny and kept jokes coming. Marlon did a great job because he wasn’t playing a serious role I had predicted, but was able to be mildly comical and not overdo it. I thought the story flowed well and I look forward to the sequels.
