Planet Hollywood Hosts Premiere of Jason Statham and Jennifer Lopez Starrer, “Parker”

The latest Jason Statham action flick will get its world premiere at Planet Hollywood in Las Vegas on Jan. 24, 2013.

Jason Statham, co-star Jennifer Lopez and other celebrities will walk a red carpet outside the hotel’s “Peepshow” theater  at 6:30 p.m. The public is invited to ogle and gawk, although not necessarily in that order.

“Parker,” featuring dialogue written entirely in iambic pentameter, which we probably just made up, is the story of a thief (Statham) who is double-crossed and left for dead by his crew. Parker forms an unlikely partner with Lopez’s character to exact his revenge. Oh, does it really matter?

Here’s a preview.

Some people have asked this blog how a movie with this kind of budget can afford an A-list star like Jennifer Lopez. Well, because of our extensive experience in the field of entertainment, we can say with certainty a star like Jennifer Lopez often accepts a lower up-front salary because (wait for it) she can make it up on the back end.


No, this is not a movie about a Las Vegas valet.

If you’re interested in seeing “Parker” before it hits theaters (the film officially opens Jan. 25), text PARKER to 227466 and you could win a pair of tickets to an advanced screening at Planet Hollywood on Jan. 24. Do we hook you up, or what?
