Los Angeles, CA: Los Angeles Premiere of "Shorts" to be Held at Chinese Theater on August 15, 2009

Posted on Wednesday, August 5th, 2009 12:40 PM by Scott Jentsch

Warner Bros. Pictures has announced that the Los Angeles Premiere of the upcoming family action/adventure movie Shorts will be held at Mann Grauman's Chinese Theatre in Los Angeles, California on Saturday, August 15, 2009.

Expected to attend the event from the movie are Jon Cryer, Leslie Mann, Kat Dennings, Jimmy Bennett, Jolie Vanier and writer/director Robert Rodriguez, as well as other celebrity guests.

Celebrities will begin arriving at Noon, and the screening is scheduled to begin at 1pm.

From filmmaker Robert Rodriguez, creator of the “Spy Kids” trilogy and “The Adventures of Sharkboy and Lavagirl in 3-D,” comes the family action-adventure “Shorts.” Eleven-year-old Toe Thompson is the designated punching bag for the bullies of the suburban community of Black Falls, where his and everyone else’s parents work for Black Box Industries, makers of the do-it-all gadget that’s sweeping the nation. But during a freak storm, a mysterious Rainbow Rock, which grants wishes to anyone who finds it, falls from the sky. Suddenly, the neighborhood that Toe already thinks is weird is about to get a lot weirder. As the Rainbow Rock ricochets around the town — from kid to kid and parent to parent — wishes-come-true quickly turn the neighborhood upside down in a wild rampage of everything from tiny aliens to giant boogers.

The magical fantasy adventure “Shorts” is told through a series of interwoven not-so-tall tales that each brings to life the sometimes wonderful, often terrible, and totally out- of-control wishes that become far more than Toe and his neighbors ever imagined.

The movie is rated PG and will open in theaters on Friday, August 21, 2009.
