“Asteroid City,” which was shown for the first time during this year’s Cannes Festival, will arrive in Brazil on August 10, with a June 16 premiere in overseas cinemas. Alice Tully Hall, the concert center in New York, was the stage for the film’s North American premiere.
For the occasion, the heroine Scarlett Johansson chose a white long dress from the Resort 24 collection by Carolina Herrera. The dress was first paraded during the brand’s runway in the wonderful city of Rio de Janeiro.
In an unprecedented move in its more than 40-year history, the brand chose a venue other than the Big Apple for its show. In total, events took place in Rio de Janeiro for three days, bringing together editors and guests from different countries. The works presented were a celebration of Brazilian optimism and joy.
In addition to Scarlett, the Wes Anderson-directed film is packed with Hollywood stars and stars like Margot Robbie and Tom Hanks, who also attended the premiere.
“Asteroid City” is based on the fictional city that gives the film its title circa 1955. Each year, students and parents participate in Junior Stargazers, an amateur astronomy competition that attracts talent from across the country. There, the characters get involved in a variety of awkward, romantic, funny and dramatic situations, worthy of a film by Wes Anderson, who knows how to create unique and interesting characters.
