Earlier this week I was invited by The Moms to attend the Washington, DC Premiere of White House Down. Cocktail party, Jamie Foxx, Channing Tatum, Maggie Gyllenhaal, and a screening of the film… I just couldn’t miss it!
Before the red carpet and screening, we headed over to Mate in Georgetown for appetizers and cocktails.
It was wonderful meeting more Washington, DC bloggers and to meet the hosts themselves. The cocktail party was co-hosted by Equinox, which is a fabulous gym here in the DC area.
After the cocktail party we headed over to the theater. We were really hoping to be next to the red carpet in order to meet the stars, but they had it pretty well blocked off.
From afar we were able to see Jamie Foxx arrive… Love that man!
Once inside we settled in and waiting for the stars to arrive to introduce the movie.
The sweet voice of Jamie Foxx made their presence known…
Love. Love. Love!
Let me just tell you… Channing Tatum is oh so hot and sweet as can be!
The stars took some time to talk about the movie and to share their experience working with one another.
I especially loved hearing Jamie Foxx sing…
Maggie, who had a baby just before the filming had started was just delightful! I just adore her!
After the celebrities left, we allowed our heart rate to settle down and we enjoyed the film. The movie was actually really good! I think because of the actors, there were a few awkward moments when humor entered the script. You wanted to laugh but they were in the middle of an action scene which made it weird.
The action was amazing though and I really enjoyed Maggie and Channing in the film. I would definitely recommend seeing it at some point, though I know people may not rush to see it in theaters.
We had a blast last night and loved being given the opportunity to attend. Such a cool experience!
