It was a star-studded red carpet event at Planet Hollywood for the premiere of “The Mechanic,” a new action film starring Jason Statham, Ben Foster and Donald Sutherland.

On Jan. 26, Statham made a flashy entrance in front of Planet Hollywood and The Miracle Mile Shops, driving a sporty red car we do not entirely know the name of.

Jason Statham

Jason Statham just made you swoon. Admit it.

Statham was later joined on the red carpet by the movie’s director, Simon West, Peepshow star Holly Madison and her “Holly’s World” co-star Laura Croft.

Randy Couture

This is "tough guy" Randy Couture, who we're pretty sure we could beat at arm wrestling. (Actual results may vary.)

Also on the red carpet were Flamingo Las Vegas magician Nathan Burton, Statham’s “The Expendables” co-star Randy Couture, former NSYNC member (and guest host of The Price is Right Live at Bally’s) Joey Fatone and other people we kind of recognized but forgot to take notes about.

Holly Madison Jason Statham

Holly Madison recently began moonlighting as a correspondent for the entertainment show, "Extra." Here, she interviews Jason Statham in Planet Hollywood's Extra Lounge.

Due to our uncanny ability to multi-task, we not only managed to capture photos from the premiere, but also this ineptly-edited video. Join us on the red carpet, won’t you?

The red carpet was followed by a screening of “The Mechanic,” which, we are so relieved to say, was pretty darned good, otherwise we’d have to just mumble something about, “Well, that certainly had a beginning and end.”

Statham fans will love this touching drama about Statham’s character, King George VI, overcoming a stammer just in time to deliver a history-making speech. Or maybe we’re thinking of something else. Whatever. Guns were fired. Knuckles were unleashed. Fireballs ensued. Great fun.
