The lights went out during the 'Elektra Luxx' premiere...  
... or better - on!

The nightmare of any film director at a premiere happened, due to technical problems (reports say the projector broke), the film couldn't be shown until the end. Bummer!

About 3/4 of the film had been shown, when the screen went black. What do to? Sebastian Gutierrez made the best out of it - while he first entertained the audience from the stage, still hoping the problems could be fixed, he then held an improvised Q&A with the crew including Carla Gugino, Malin Akerman, Emmanuelle Chriqui and Emma Bell.

Now SXSW tries to find a slot for another screening.

To say this incident was unexpected would be the greatest understatement of the year.

The pic shows Carla Gugino, Emmanuelle Chriqui, Sebastian Gutierrez, Emma Bell and Malin Akerman at the red carpet. More photos will follow in an extra post later.

He really managed the situation very well. I've only read positive things about the evening - despite the fact that the most people weren't able to see the film until the end. They had another screening the next day, but in a much smaller theater.

As for the pics, I'm sorry for the delay. The last days have been quite busy, but I'm going to upload them today.

Nice icon btw!
