Everyone deserves a second chance!

Berlin (Germany), June 18th, 2007
Something went utterly wrong with this premiere. Utterly in the sense of organisation. Officials told us the premiere would start somewhat around 6 pm, but the first local celebrities showed only up at 19:30. A very hectic organiser on the mobile, security people being moved from one point to the next and back again.
At 8 pm the main stars arrived. Very lovely Justin Long. He got out of the car fulfilled autograph wishes and even posed with fans. Justin Long is relatively unknown to the German audience but everyone showing a tiny bit of fan appreciation is wholeheartedly embraced.
Whoever told Maggie Q to have by no chance her hair moved in any way deserves punishment. The poor girl didn't dare to turn her neck. Instead she held it in a very for me looking uncomfortable way. I hope she didn't have a stiff neck afterwards. Nonetheless, she also gave autographs and went into some of the fan sections.
Massive confusion when Mr. Bruce Willis arrived. Well, thinking it should be easy to spot him because he should have been the only one with a shaved head. Instead suddenly five people with a shave head showed up (I guess his security people) and one of the official photographers brought it to the point. “It think I got the wrong one,” while studying his camera's display in confusion. LOL
Either it was the late timing or something else that went wrong. Mr. Willis didn't have time for the fans, not even a brief wave. The initial loud cheering was washed away by loud booing the organisers tried to oversound with their two CO2-nebular canons. Only then Mr. Willis raised his hand to wave briefly. After that it was one of the most silent premieres I ever went to.
Even the second of a group of competition winners (I think they were American soldiers stationed in Germany) that were allowed onto the Red Carpet to ask Mr. Willis questions got overlooked.
I think something went utterly wrong with the organisation and Mr. Willis got to get a second chance.
