Live from the Green Carpet at the Zürich Film Festival!

Last night was opening night at the Zurich Film Festival. Even though the carpet in front of the Corso movie theater was green, the celebrities were dressed kind of like in Hollywood... Anyone with a name made it by my camera. But while I did recognize quite a few faces, I barely knew any of their names! So if you recognize someone other than Laurence Fishburne, please leave a comment...

Either way, it was fun carrying a "press pass" to be right there and catch the action! Plus, I got to watch the Swiss premier of Steven Soderbergh's Contagion! Pretty creepy, but I would not agree with IMDB's 7.4/10 rating (possibly a 6/10 though).
