Sirius XM’s TheMoms hosted a screening for the movie Annie starring Jamie Foxx and Quvenzhane Wallis at the Sony screening room on Tuesday afternoon. The event was sponsored by Norwegian Cruise Line and one lucky family that attended will win a cruise! There were tons of families lined up, little boys and girls all dressed in red and ready to see Annie. norwegian-cruise-cupcakes In the waiting area, the children helped themselves to some yummy cupcakes and slices of pizza while the moms and dads talked amongst themselves, each hoping that they’ll be the lucky family who wins the cruise prize.

Before the actual screening of Annie, we had a few commercials from Norwegian Cruise Lines which had me ready to fight to the “death” for a chance to win the family cruise prize. A vacation was needed right there and then, pretty sure there were more families who thought the same thing. THIS. IS. SPARTA! A duel was definitely going to break out right there in the Sony screening room, if it was announced that you had to fight to win. TheMoms, Denise Albert and Melissa Musen Gerstein, announced that the winner would be notified before Christmas. They also had another surprise, some of the cast members would be in attendance!

There were about 15 children who sat on the floor to watch Annie and only a couple of children moved from the spot where they sat. They were so mesmerized by the movie, one little girl would dance her little heart out during certain musical scenes.quvenzhane-wallis-opportunity My nieces attended the AnnieMoms event and my eldest niece, 14, broke out in tears during several scenes that featured Annie, namely the “Opportunity” number. The movie won her over, my 12-year-old-younger niece was not here for Annie. She told me “nothing beats the original”, it was an “okay” movie, that was “missing mysterious elements” and was curious why they were “singing off-key.”

Yikes!

After the screening of Annie, in walked four members of the cast…

Zoe Margaret Colletti (Tessie), Nicolette Pierini (Mia), Eden Duncan-Smith (Isabella), and Amanda Troya (Pepper). These lovely ladies played four foster girls in Miss Hannigan’s (Cameron Diaz) care. They stopped by to answer a few questions from the audience and later took pictures with the children in attendance. This was the first feature film for 3 of the young ladies, all have done previous commercials before Annie. Here’s a few videos from the interview.

Nicolette Pierini who plays Mia spoke on Cameron Diaz being an awesome set mother.

The young ladies speak about experiences on set.

Just a few pictures of the four foster girl actors from the Annie remake movie and attendees.

Academy Award® nominee Quvenzhané Wallis (Beasts of the Southern Wild) stars as Annie, a young, happy foster kid who’s also tough enough to make her way on the streets of New York in 2014. Originally left by her parents as a baby with the promise that they’d be back for her someday, it’s been a hard knock life ever since with her mean foster mom Miss Hannigan (Cameron Diaz). But everything’s about to change when the hard-nosed tycoon and New York mayoral candidate Will Stacks (Jamie Foxx) – advised by his brilliant VP, Grace (Rose Byrne) and his shrewd and scheming campaign advisor, Guy (Bobby Cannavale) – makes a thinly-veiled campaign move and takes her in. Stacks believes he’s her guardian angel, but Annie’s self-assured nature and bright, sun-will-come-out-tomorrow outlook on life just might mean it’s the other way around.

Annie is in theaters December 19th.

Marvel Universe Live Event With SiriusXM’s TheMOMS

Marvel Universe Live

Last night I went to a Marvel Universe Live event hosted by SiriusXM’s TheMoms Denise Albert and Melissa Musen Gersetein. Honestly, I’ve been waiting patiently for August 6th to get here for the past few weeks, you guys KNOW, that I Stan for Marvel. (See what I did there?) Upon arrival we walked directly into a fight between The HULK and Spider-Man

I swear The Hulk is ALWAYS throwing his weight around!

I had no idea that Marvel decided to bring Iron Woman AND Iron Man together for this Marvel Universe Live event! I’m absolutely here for it!

Wolverine and Thor are totally about to fight, altho it looks as if Thor is making…a kissyface??? HAVE AT THEE *insert kissyface*

Okay, you got me…that’s NOT really The Hulk, Spider-Man, Iron Woman, Thor or Wolverine. There was a station where you could dress up by wearing several superhero accessories. Of course I joined in as the Female Thor. What can I say I am a geek/child at heart. A few minutes into pictures being taken, the cast of Marvel Universe Live appeared!

Check out SiriusXM’s TheMoms Denise Albert and Melissa Musen Gersetein with the cast from Marvel Universe Live! That was after, they changed out of their costumes of course 😀

Would you believe there was a Black Widow AND Hawkeye station? AWESOMENESS!!!!!

The Black Widow station was where you can learn how to defend yourself against the evil Chitauri or any bad guys that come at you. You’ll learn different combos on taking a bad guy down. Here’s a quick clip of Denise Albert embracing her Black Widow skills!

I think those heels were preventing her to take the bad guys down, but I have ample faith that Denise will totally kick some Chitauri booty in no time!

During the training camp session, I was able to do a quick interview with Juliette Feld, producer of Marvel Universe Live.

And now…for pics and videos of the show:
