I love the first film, so I'm looking forward to seeing this sequel! So I will be visiting an IMAX theater near me on December 14th.

Take a look at the full press release below:

HOLLYWOOD, CA (November 14, 2012) – Paramount Pictures will release the first 9-minutes from J.J.

Exclusively in IMAX theaters, sequences filmed with the extremely high-resolution cameras will expand to fill more of the screen with unprecedented crispness and claritfy, putting moviegoers right into the explosive action and vast scope of the film.

See Fun Excerpts of My “Anna Karenina” Interviews -- LOL Moments! 

Before we started our respective “Anna Karenina” interviews, the stars (Jude Law, Keira Knightley, etc.) were getting ready, and I was trying to do my best to charm them, or wake them up, or both! So I always love using my excerpts because they’re fun! Take a look at this clip where I gallanted the “Anna Karenina” folks with my Manny Karenina bit – see the publicist with Domhnall Gleeson believing that my real name was Manny Karenina (yup, LOL), and Jude Law talking about my hair!

Have Fun!
