Relativity Media’s world premiere of the film Limitless took place yesterday at the Regal Union Square Theatre, Stadium 14 in NYC. The event was presented by Deleon Tequila and attended by the A-list cast, B-list celebrities, and Richard Branson (random? maybe not, Virgin helped produce it).

The paranoia-fueled action thriller starring Bradley Cooper (The Hangover, The A-Team), Abbie Cornish (Bright Star), and Oscar winner Robert De Niro (Raging Bull, Taxi Driver) is about an unsuccessful writer whose life is transformed by a top-secret “smart drug” that allows him to use 100 percent of his brain and become a perfect version of himself. His enhanced abilities soon attract shadowy forces that threaten his new life in this suspenseful and provocative film.

Limitless is directed by Neil Burger (The Illusionist, Interview with the Assassin) and written by Leslie Dixon (Hairspray, The Thomas Crown Affair), based on the novel Limitless (originally The Dark Fields) by Alan Glynn. Others stars of the film include Anna Friel (You Will Meet a Tall Dark Stranger), Andrew Howard (Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen), Johnny Whitworth (3:10 to Yuma) and Thomas Arana (The Bourne Supremacy).

The screening was met with lots of oohs and aahhs, during and after the showing. Imagine a room packed with over-worked and underpaid celebrities watching a film loaded with paranoid characters and plots.  The gasps of simultaneously relief and content at the end of the film were pretty obvious.

Here are images from the night.  You’ll find James Lipton (Inside the Actors Studio), Alyssa Milano, T.V. Carpio, Russel Simmons, the backside of Model Nicole Trunfio, and others.  You will also find a few stills from the film.
