Darnell Martin's Cadillac Records premiered Monday night in the big apple at AMC Loews 19th Street with a red carpet full of stars. The all-star cast including Adrian Brody, Jeffrey Wright, Columbus Short, Emanuelle Chiquri, Gabrielle Union, Mos Def and Beyonce Knowles were joined by family and celebrity pals Kelly Ripa with her hubby Mark Consuelos, Sean "Diddy" Combs, Ne-Yo, Russell Simmons, Tina Knowles, Cedric the Entertainer, Elsa Pataky and Beyonce's other half, Jay-Z. The flick which hits theaters for the rest of us on Friday, is a Chess Records biopic putting music to the forefront as it chronicles the careers of the label's recording artists Muddy Waters, Etta James, Little Walter, and Howlin' Wolf, and Chuck Berry.
