Secret Movie Premiere

I'm a sucker for any marketing gimmick,
(which is somewhat ironic considering I'm a publicist)
but last night instincts didn't fail me.  
Like puddy in Paramount's hands, 
my friend and I took our chances and rsvp'ed
 to a secret movie premiere at the Kabuki theater in San Francisco.
We didn't know what the movie would be, only that it was being released later this year
and that the director, along with an award winning actor
would be on-site to answer questions after the viewing.
I was convinced halfway through our Sapporo beers as we waited to gain entrance
that we were going to be forced to watch silent Japanese porn,
but luckily I was proved wrong.
Jason Reitman and Diablo Cody decided to skip the festival circuit and instead,
premiere their newest collaboration secretly,  in five cities across the country.
A little actress named Charlize Theron joined them.
The movie was Young Adult- set to release this December.
I fully endorse it.
And not just because I have an
 unexplainable crush on Jason Reitman after all of this.
It's dark.
And just as depressing as I found Up in the Air to be.
Jason and Diablo said it best: if we came expecting Juno
we would be in for a rude awakening.
It's smart and dark, and has moments of hilarity.
I pretty much had second hand embarrassment throughout the entire movie.
And we all got exclusive to our city movie posters for taking a chance on the secret premiere
Oh, and Charlize Theron is suuuuper skinny in person.
