Inside Man Premiere

It's nice to see that Spike Lee put out the extra money for a tent. Not.
I know its first day of spring... and it's a blamy 30 degrees. There are 50+ shooters outside in the Ziegfeld Wind Tunnel. Some of them waiting since .
Now I’m sorry... but did I miss something on the tip sheet? Jodie Foster, Denzel Washington and Clive Owen (tough sales as is). Do those names warrant such an early turnout?
The tip sheet also promised Naomi Campbell, Eva Mendes, Jay Z (no shows on the rug)...but we did get Rev. Al Sharpton and Russell Simmons (please read as sarcasm).
As for the set-up, 2 sides shooting towards each other, 2-3 rows deep...and one section with posters as a backdrop. Unfortunately, they put a 12ft high light stand in the photo area, taking up 2-3 spaces. And in the frenzy and the wind, the light kept shifting onto some of the shooters in the corner. I could only assume it was a horrible backlight (see photo).
