    The Las Vegas Palms Casino Resort has announced that the World Premiere of Elektra will take place at the casino. Here is the press release:

    Signifying that Las Vegas is synonymous with action, in the casino and on the big screen, the Palms Casino Resort and Maloof Productions will host the World Premiere of the 20th Century Fox and Regency Enterprises film ELEKTRA, starring Jennifer Garner. The event will take place at Brenden Theatres at the Palms on Saturday night, January 8.

    In the movie, Jennifer Garner returns as ELEKTRA, a warrior who stands in the center of the ultimate battle between good and evil, in the first action event film of the year. The film is directed by Rob Bowman and will be released nationwide on January 14.

    "It's a pleasure to roll out the red carpet for Jennifer Garner and 20th Century Fox," stated Palms owner George Maloof. "I hope it symbolizes a greater willingness of Hollywood to look to the thrill of Las Vegas for some of its most exciting premieres, and specifically the Palms Casino Resort, the most exciting destination just off the Strip."

    The exclusive event starts at 7:00 p.m. with the red carpet arrival of stars from the film including Jennifer Garner and Goran Visnjic. Others attending will include the Maloof family, Las Vegas Mayor Oscar Goodman and the beautiful Palms Girls. At approximately 8:00 p.m. ELEKTRA will premiere in Brenden Theatres. Following the screening, Rain Nightclub will become Elektra-fied beginning at 10:00 p.m. At the event, Clark County Commissioner Lynette Boggs McDonald and Las Vegas Mayor Oscar Goodman will also present the Maloof family with a Proclamation for "Palms Elektra Day." The Palms will release a limited edition $10 ELEKTRA Commemorative Casino Chip beginning Thursday, January 6th at 10:00 a.m.

    Aww, man! And I had my cool Elektra t-shirt to support the premiere :( Regardless if Garner was coming or not at the red carpet(Fox Studios announced that she canceled and due to some viral infection) I'd have attended anyway...but I promised to go to a family friend's wedding in California that same weekend and am leaving Friday night. Would've been cool to meet some of you guys there though.

    Yes, I was watching Inside Edition and they mentioned a Fox Studios press release saying that Garner, who takes her public appearances very seriously, has called off her red carpet premiere appearance due to a 'viral infection'. They deny any rumors of a pregnancy by Daredevil co-star Ben Affleck. Current photos seem to back this up. Couple other Hollywood tv news magazines also circulated this breaking news about her cancelation. When your are the lead actress/actor, canceling something as big as your own movie premiere is tough.

    EDIT: The RJ also mentions a quote by a Maloof Brother, not George, about Garner's sudden cancelation.

    Well, not that I was planning on going anyway, but if Jennifer Garner aint coming, it makes waiting out in the cold, and possibly wet, seem even less apealing.

    Guess it was just a cute lil' publicity stunt to help promote the movie. Yeah, it'd suck getting stuck in the wet and cold just for a premiere the public isn't even really invited to the actual film screening itself anyway :p
