LOS ANGELES, June 7, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- LiveMe, America's #1 live broadcasting app, attended the red carpet premiere of Twentieth Century Fox's X-Men: Dark Phoenix ahead of the movie's opening today. Hosted at the iconic TCL Chinese Theatre in Hollywood, the invite-only event was joined by the press, industry insiders, A-listers, and cast members, including Game of Thrones star Sophie Turner who plays Jean Grey in the upcoming film.
As part of LiveMe's red carpet sponsorship, select LiveMe broadcasters were invited to walk the carpet and mingle with stars and VIP guests, followed by a private after-party attended by cast members, including an exclusive LiveMe Lounge inside the legendary Hollywood Roosevelt Hotel. All the festivities were broadcasted live on the LiveMe app, giving its viewers front row seats to all the action from the premiere of one of the most anticipated movies of the summer.
LiveMe broadcaster Charlie Chudabala hosted LiveMe's coverage of the red carpet. Among the highlights of the event were their interviews with Marvel's Cloak and Dagger actress Olivia Holt and X-Men: Dark Phoenix stars Michael Fassbender (Magneto) and Kodi Smit-McPhee (Nightcrawler), as well as a surprise appearance from pop icon Katy Perry.
Several of the movie's stars, including Jessica Chastain, posed for photo ops with many of the lucky broadcasters. Broadcasters in attendance were also treated to an exclusive screening of Dark Phoenix days ahead of its release. Throughout the exciting event, LiveMe met with many of its partners and broadcasters, gaining valuable into their individual goals and ambitions, their fans, and how LiveMe has positively impacted their lives.
