Now I’ve heard everything. After several years of having little homegrown product except for DreamWorks fare, Paramount proudly trotted out JJ Abrams’ reimagined Star Trek at the hot-ticket premiere last night. But get this — I’m told the catering company got the wrong date and location for the after party. Which meant that, at 7:30 PM, the staff had to run to Whole Foods and find some eats. It looked like a full-frills premiere except for the guests snacking on dinner rolls, salad, pita and hummus. I just heard from a Paramount insider: “You got it right. The events company screwed up. But our team managed to pull something good together in 3 hours, which is very impressive.”
