This German Movie Premiere was different, for the first time, the director was as famous as the cast itself. Quentin Tarantino’s newest Movie Django Unchained celebrated its German Premiere today, of course, at the Sony Center Potsdamer Platz in Berlin.
The American western tells the story about a freed slave who treks across America together with a bounty hunter, on a mission to rescue his wife.
Quentin Tarantino himself was present, together with Jamie Foxx, Christoph Waltz, Samuel L. Jackson and Kerry Washington. Leonardo DiCaprio was absent due to an urgent appointment.
The German Premiere of Skyfall, the newest Movie of the James Bond franchise, took place yesterday, Tuesday 30th, at the Potsdamer Platz Theater in Berlin with James Bond actor Daniel Craig, bond girl Bérénice Marlohe, director Sam Mendes and producer Barbara Broccoli.
A PBC Tron Bike was placed at the Potsdamer Platz Arkaden in Berlin during this years Festival of Lights and will remain there until the 21st of October. The reason behind this is that the eBikes which were used during the Light Cycle Chase in Disney’s TRON: Legacy were designed by a German car designer, in fact, a car designer from Berlin and of course, the luminous futuristic design fits the current theme of Berlin.
The eBike, which is limited to only 10 pieces worldwide, is fully functional and was build in over 2.500 production hours. It uses an Apple iPad 3 as a controller and can reach a maximum speed of 200 km/h.
The 2012 remake of the 1990 released movie Total Recall had its German Premier today in Berlin at Sony Center Potsdamer Platz with Colin Farrell, Kate Beckinsale, Jessica Biel and director Len Wiseman.
The movie is about the factory worker, Douglas Quaid, who begins to suspect that he is a spy after visiting Rekall, a company that provides its clients with implanted fake memories of a life they would like to have led. Also, the story does not include a trip to Mars.
So, I wouldn’t say it’s a complete remake, the story is based on the 1966 short story written by Philip K. Dick with a few similarities.
The Sony Center – Potsdamer Platz was filled with screams from the excited audience today at the German Premiere of the film adaptation of Nicholas Sparks’ The Lucky One after Zac Efron together with Taylor Schilling and Nicholas Sparks himself left their cars to walk the red carpet in Berlin.
The Movie, directed by Scott Hicks, is about Logan Thibault (Zac Efron), a U.S. Marine who returns to Colorado from his third tour of duty in Iraq, with the one thing he credits with keeping him alive—a photograph he found of a woman (Beth (Taylor Schilling)) he doesn’t even know. After his return from Iraq, lost after his near death experiences, he walks to Louisiana from Colorado to find this woman who he credits for saving him.
Nicholas Sparks is now a worldwide phenomenon, his 18 books reached more than $80-million in sales, seven of them were turned into Hollywood movies.

The World Premiere of the movie Bel Ami was held today at the Berlinale Palast – Potsdamer Platz as part of this year’s International Film Festival in Berlin. The story of Bel Ami chronicles journalist Georges Duroy’s corrupt rise to power from a poor ex-NCO to one of the most successful men in Paris, most of which he achieves by manipulating a series of powerful, intelligent, and wealthy mistresses.
Robert Pattinson, who plays the role of the main character “Georges Duroy”, as well as his Co-Stars Christina Ricci and Holliday Grainger walked the red carpet while giving autographs and taking pictures with their fans. Sadly, Uma Thurman canceled her flight this morning, she had an appointment for the new US-Series Smash and wasn’t able to attend today’s special event.
Another Day, another premiere, another Star, Meryl Streep was attending the German Premiere of The Iron Lady, a film about the life of Margaret Thatcher, the former Prime Minister of the United Kingdom, for which she won a best actress BAFTA award in London two days ago, beside the golden globe she received for the same role earlier this year. She is also nominated for her third Oscar on February 26.
The premiere was hold today at the Berlinale Palast – Potsdamer Platz, with hundreds of fans, singing and cheering for their beloved actress.
The Potsdamer Platz is famous for its events, movie premieres and festivities, but what I saw yesterday was a bit different, 3 big yurts were standing in the middle of the Sony Center, in front of the CineStar Event Cinema. Yurts are portable, bent wood-framed dwelling structure traditionally used by Turkic nomads in the steppes of Central Asia, so it was quite interesting and I wanted to know what’s going on there.
Two of the yurts were closed, the third one had a sign, “Info Yurt”. I went in and was told that the yurts are being used by 35 authors, reading chapters of their books in front of an audience of about 25 people, as part of an event called “Readings in Yurts”. After the reading, they could ask question about the book and the author, probably because there were a lot of students in the audience.
