|Update: Here's a good article by Roger Friedman of Fox News about the premiere last night and what went down during the screening. A little excerpt:|
"Dreamgirls" premiered last night at the Ziegfeld in New York — and Jennifer Hudson got a standing ovation in the middle of the movie when she finished singing "And I'm Telling You I'm Not Going." When the film was over, there was another standing O, and the entire audience stood still and watched the main end credits.
...Jamie Foxx, Eddie Murphy, Hudson, writer-director Bill Condon and a huge number of Paramount-Viacom officials (starting with Brad Grey) were all in attendance. So were Queen Latifah and a lot of other guests who were bowled over by the film. Yours truly was also pleasantly surprised, since "Dreamgirls" had been slightly edited and reworked since my initial review on Nov. 15. It's even better now, if that's possible."
