In town for the premiere of After Earth at the Miami Science Museum and the Heat game Wednesday, Will and Jaden Smith stopped by Univision’s Despierta America where the elder Smith impressed co-host Karla Martinez with his Spanish, while son Jaden went head to head in a trivia game with co-host Ana Patricia Gonzales. Earlier in the week, Jesse Eisenberg was on the show promoting his latest, Now You See Me, in between sharing magic tricks and fending off the amusing advances of Raul Gonzalez, channeling his cleaning lady character Dona Meche.
The Smiths were quite a hit at the museum, where about 1,000 fans showed up, young and old.
They also were also seen having a private dinner on Zuma’s waterfront terrace. Dressed in an off white suit, the action star was seen to be in a great mood, making everyone laugh.
There’s a party going on right here. Celebrate the grand opening of the newly designed Disney store at Bayside Marketplace Saturday, where there will be some special “movie star” appearances. The fun starts at 10 a.m. with an opening ceremony; the first 500 guests get a free gift. From noon to 4 attend a meet and greet with Toy Story’s Buzz, Woody and Jessie at the marina stage.
Microsoft will open its first retail store in Miami at Dadeland Mall in Kendall at 10:30 a.m. Saturday to much fanfare. The first 200 people in line get two VIP tickets to see Lupe Fiasco and the Gym Class Heroes in concert later that evening at The Fillmore. The next 1,350 people in line will also score regular tickets to the show. Details: facebook.com/microsoftstore
