Argo Premiere

Last night Cinema Scoop hit the red carpet alongside the stars attending the BFI London Film Festival screening of Ben Affleck’s newest directorial venture Argo. Having already gained massive critical acclaim for his latest film Argo- Ben Affleck (who is also the lead man) made his way along with other cast members Bryan Cranston and John Goodman to The Sanderson Hotel in Soho to continue the celebrations after the screening at a bash sponsored by CIROC Ultra-Premium Vodka.

Ben looked slick in a black fitted suit and remained humble as he claimed that he was absolutely ‘honoured to have a film in the London Film Festival’ and he ‘dreamt about having a film premiere in London since he was child.’ Fellow co-star Bryan Cranston who is known for his critically acclaimed comedy roles, such as sitcom Malcolm In the Middle and most recently Breaking Bad and the film Rock of Ages, smiled and posed with adoring party goers who showered him with praise about his performance in the film- he went on to comment “ I am so happy I could make the Brits laugh! It’s a big honour.” Actor John Goodman was enjoying the party and was overheard joking around with Ben as he teasingly commented that heat ‘first only agreed to do the film because he was led to believe that he would meet Matt Damon!’

Even with its comedic aspects, Argo, was a brilliant thriller focusing on the true story of a CIA infiltration agent in Iran, and reconfirms Ben Affleck’s position in Hollywood as a very talented director. Guests who attended the screening were clearly very impressed with the film, and had even cheered and clapped mid film.

As the night wore on, the party atmosphere intensified, with guests dancing to the house music and enjoying outside deck and garden area. It was certainly a celebration fit for a first rate film!

Guests Drank CIROC Passion Fruit Martinis, and CIROC Rocks cocktails

Guests Ate: Confit Duck Springs Rolls, Malaysian Vegetable Curry Puffs, Beef Bourguignone with Parsley Mash, Cepe Mushroom Risotto, Sweet Coconut Tarts, and Hazelnut Mousse.
