Katie Holmes Premieres New Film 'Days & Nights' at IFC Center

Katie Holmes hits the red carpet at the premiere of her new movie Days and Nights on Thursday evening (September 25) at the IFC Center in New York City.

The indie film was written and directed by theater actor Christian Camargo, who also stars alongside Katie, Juliet Rylance, and Cherry Jones.

Other celebs in attendance at the event that night included The Knick‘s Eve Hewson, Sting, Mickey Sumner, and Broadway star Condola Rashad.

The movie is inspired by Anton Chekhov‘s classic story “The Seagull.” It follows the reckless desire that wreaks havoc over Memorial Day weekend as a family confronts the volatile and fragile nature of love. Check it out in limited theaters this weekend!

FYI: Katie is wearing a Holmes and Yang blazer, Acne jeans, and Michael Kors shoes.

30+ pictures inside of Katie Holmes and others at the premiere…

    I think Katie looks stunning. Love the whole look, not so much the red lipstick.
    Got a good review in Vanity Fair.

  • Nathan

    Katie looks so good in these pictures. I love the Jeans and the blazer. The shade of her lipstick is great too. her lips look so juicy. Katie never disappoints she is always super hot on the red-carpet. :)

  • Amy Lee Christian

    I love Katie.Hopefully she has been through the Scientology deprogramming and is able to live a full life.

  • Caryn

    Outfit is ok, but awful hair style. Her facial shape is not one that looks good with the hair so severely tied back.

    Few people look good with such severe hair, Katie included. Why so harsh? The outfit is ok, but not great. I’m not a fan of the super tight jeans, although I like the idea of the outfit.

  • K-Flop – Rumor mill

    Holmes ‘selling off own brand clothes’ – http://www.tv3.ie/entertainment_article.php?locID=1.803.811&article=146078

    Katie Holmes has started a “cleansing process” by getting rid of her Holmes & Yang line, according to reports.

    “She no longer wants to wear any of her Holmes & Yang collection now that the line is defunct, so she is selling it on eBay and it’s quite collectable,” a source told British magazine Heat. “She doesn’t need the money, but it’s kind of a sport to her to see how much she can get for things.” [source]

    “She has actually made a lot of money doing it, but she only started it as a cleansing process. She has learned over the years to rid herself of anything that reminds her of failure as quickly as possible,” they added. [source]

    Source accuracy hasn’t been confirmed, but the information [if true] wouldn’t surprise me – ‘getting rid of things that remind K-Flop of failure as quick as possible’.

    A return to the Buckeyes state (permanent resident) is out. FAILURE

  • Laura

    I wonder if it’s hard to go to a premier when you know the film is getting embarrassing bad reviews already.
    Must be hard to keep a straight face.
    @Caryn, I think so too. The first thing you see is the ears.

    Way too harsh with the make up for anytime but especially for such a casual event. This picture here looks almost clownish.

  • llr

    Her hair and makeup just don’t look right with the casual clothes. No surprise though because she rarely looks totally put together. There’s always something lacking with her it seems.

  • Rotten Tomatoes

    This isn’t looking too promising so far.
    Currently 6 reviews all rotten and at 0% rating.

    Film Journal review refers to Days & Nights as god-awful
    http://www.filmjournal.com/filmjournal/content_display/reviews/specialty-releases/e3ie8e941988aba266ca2932e3ee05088be

    This god-awful reimagining of a Chekhov masterpiece will only have you yearning to see Sidney Lumet’s underrated 1968 version.

  • Traci

    Things were going so well until “K-flop” and her cronies showed up. I can’t figure out why someone would be so obsessed with somebody they obviously hate…..but oh well…..not my problem.

    Katie looks great. It’s hard for her not to. She’s a pretty woman with an awesome bone structure. I’m not a fan of skinny jeans on anyone. I much prefer the more flattering styles like the pencil leg. I also prefer her with a paler lip, but the deeper shade is nice for a change.

    I don’t think the movie is going to do blockbuster business since it’s not designed to do so. It’s a small film and I suppose the box office will be small as well. That will be Katie’s fault of course. LOL! She doesn’t do blockbusters nor should she. She’s a working actress which is much more than I can say for 99% of the people who set out to be actors.

  • Ines

    I don’t think anyone expects this movie to be a blockbuster or even mentioned anything about budgets, they know it’s a small film.
    Most critics like to praise small “arty” films but this one not so much. It’s getting panned all the way around. Nothing to do with the size of the movie.

  • Missy

    @Film Journal-god awful:
    In the review that you posted, the critc stated that Katie gave the best performance in the film. Considering all the great actors in the film, that’s quite a feat. It’s a shame that the film itself is not being well-received, but she only has a small role. At least she got to work with all those great actors and has gotten praise. Makes me even more interested in Miss Meadows and Mania Days where she has leading roles and is playing very complex characters. I think she’ll really shine.

    @Ines If you’ve read Katie’s threads you’d see that a lot of posters do focus on box-office even when it comes to indies that are not expected to make much. Perhaps it wasn’t mentioned in this thread, but it’s been mentioned a lot.

  • Killer Tomatoes

    RT keeps getting worse. More reviews and still at 0percent. Now the audience vote is currently as 0 too.
    Poor Katie. The best actress of our generation and she just can’t seem to attach herself to anything positive critically. It’s never ever her fault. She just can’t get good projects.
    I personally have never seen a movie be at 0%. Impressive indeed!
    For a movie to be at zero and the going line “at least Katie did ok” is like saying she is the thinest kid at fat camp. Go Katie.
    http://www.rottentomatoes.com/m/days_and_nights_2013/

  • Missy

    I was responding to a particular post. If someone is going to post a review on Katie’s thread, why shouldn’t I point out what the critic said about her performance? It’s not like I came in here bragging about the film. I never expected too much from this film anyway. After years of being delayed I was surprised that it was actually getting released.

  • Looselipz

    Hmmm, well she’s starting to look like a bobble head. This weight loss ages her …

  • Black unknown stars

    Where are the big stars in this film ? Where is Suria? Have not seen her lately going to school in LA or New York? Who are the stars of this movie

    You can see in these close-ups that Katie is aging incredibly well. she looks great.

  • Danelle

    Has any non-paid critic (i.e. general public) seen and commented on the film yet?

    I don’t plan on paying to see it, but if it’s shown somewhere for free (online streaming or t,v,) I’ll watch it out of curiosity.

    It’s too bad for Katie that The Giver underperformed. It can’t be a positive thing for her career to have projects close earlier and/or underperform.

    Just my thoughts

  • @Danelle

    @Danelle:
    There are two on this page but frankly it’s pretty obvious Elizabeth is fake or a plant or thinks she is funny. No way is this anyone’s “movie of the decade”. If you click on her profile it doesn’t exist but the other reviewer does.I think it’s Dutch if you want to translate but basically he says it’s like a bad SNL skit.

    #22 – It would have been nice if William Hurt, Allison Janney (she just won an Emmy), and Jean Reno would have been present. Instead we have an unenthusiastic Sting at this premiere who’s just standing there when Katie is hugging him. The word on cyberspace is that this movie is not going to do well at the box office. And actors don’t like to be attached to a flop. Katie had to show up. She’s the lead actor in the advertisements. Would anyone had noticed if she didn’t appear??? Would any attention been made to this screening if Katie’s publicists had not called the media??? At least she’s trying. Next for her Mania Days and Miss Meadows. Good luck to Katie.

  • Nathan

    @Danelle:

    Dead Accounts was a piece of crap though Katie’s Co-star even said that if it wasn’t for Katie it would of been an off Broadway play. So basically they tried to take a crappy play and sell it as a good one by using Katie’s star power that’s why the play closed early it wasn’t because anyone was bad in it.

    And this Days and Nights movie was a turkey from the get go that’s why it never got any funding for a release until now most of the reviews even say that they can’t believe that such a talented cast would be part of such a crappy movie.

    @Killer Tomatoes: # 20 was being mean saying that us Katie fans say that “She just can’t get good projects” but it’s kinda true. No? I mean she dose get stuck doing a lot of crappy movies how is she suppossed to turn out an Oscar performance in a movie like “jack and Jill”?
    That’s why I’m really excited for Miss Meadows Katie will finally be able to show how good of an actress she really is.

  • annie

    Thank you Nathan.

    The review said that” the lovely Holmes comes off the best”. I think that’s pretty good. Also if she gets good reviews for her performances, she will be getting better and more interesting roles. The mediocre actress label some of you have labelled her with looks like it’s heading for the distant past if the reviews for her performances lately are anything to go by.

  • To Nathan

    @Nathan:
    Nathan don’t you ask the next logical question which is why isn’t she in better films then? Is no one offering them to her?
    Or do you really believe these are the only films she wants to do?
    You said she “gets stuck doing crappy movies” but why is she stuck there if she is a great actress?

  • Danelle

    @Nathan:

    So, if the play (DA) and movie (N&D) are crappy scripts/stories then why did she attach herself to them?

    She didn’t read them before signing up?

    I believe DA was in a theatre in Ohio before bringing it to Broadway, so why not check it out in its original turf and seek advice on how successful it may or may not be to transition it to Broadway?

    Same with N&D, Chekhov’s Seagull, is pretty well known and well acted. I mean Meryl Streep and Natalie Portman got raves for it back in early 2000. Katie didn’t confer with anyone on how successful Camargo’s script would be in adapting a classic to modern day?

    If anything her failures or attachment to failures – Dead Accounts, Holmes & Yang, The Giver and now Night and Day, reflect poor judgment, and repeated/consistent in regard to career choices.

    Again, just my thoughts.

  • Nathan

    To: 31 & 32

    I don’t know. I’m just an outsider looking in but i think it’s way harder to get good parts in Hollywood then anyone thinks it is I mean if you have 1 movie and a 100 actresses want to star in it it’s not gonna be easy to get the part. I think actors have to kinda just take what they can get. Plus Katie is getting better parts now like Miss Meadows she is the star in it and i think when Hollywood sees it Katie will be offered even better parts.

  • Jessica

    Love her, she is so pretty. She met lots of Tall men at Tallmen.org for women who love tall men

    “I want to know where Katie Holmes stands on your plate? Personally, I commend her on trying to be an actress, but I just don’t see it. Her biggest role ever was in a Batman movie and she sucked. Sometimes you need to know when to pull the plug and just live off that Cruise money…I mean Suri money.”

    @K-Flop – Rumor mill: I don’t know where this story came from about Katie selling H&Y pieces on eBay, but there are only a few H&Y pieces listed and they’re being sold by long time ebay sellers. All you have to do is look.

  • Just a Comment

    According to the Daily Mail, it looks like Michelle Williams is selling her Brooklyn home and moving to Los Angeles to get better movie parts: Good luck to Michelle and her daughter Matilda. During the time Katie and Suri lived in New York and even when she was married to Cruise and appearing on Broadway on All My Sons, never saw Michelle Williams and Katie with their daughters on a playdate. Never saw Michelle and Katie have coffee or going to the gym to workout, etc. Never saw Michelle going to see All My Sons as we saw Oprah, Victoria Beckman with her husband David, and Katie’s parents, etc but no Michelle Williams.

  • Jodan

    @Just a Comment:

    It looks as though Michelle and Katie may not be that close.

    For example, Brooke Shields attended the Days and Nights premiere in NY.

    Grier (Brooke’s daughter) and Suri were born on the same day and they both (Brooke and Katie) share a connection to the whole Matt Lauer and Tom Cruise incident.

    Michelle and Katie only had Dawson’s Creek over 10 years ago

  • To Nathan

    Nathan, I think that might be an excuse once in a while but not all the time. You know what they say the Cream rises to the top. A lot of Hollywood types are very aware of who she is and if she isn’t considered time and time again, that says something.

  • Yum

    @Just a Comment:
    I saw that on a news site and loved that apartment. So much light for a NY home and beautiful decks.
    I too have wondered if they are friends. Maybe there is no dislike but also not chummy either. They have very different personalities.
    Brooke did go to that premier but we don’t know if it was really for Katie. I have never seen them as friends either but that doesn’t mean they aren’t.Sting and Eve Hewson were pictured and we don’t know why exactly they were there.

  • caryn

    If her career plan is to do leading roles or appear in blockbusters like Batman, it probably won’t happen regardless of what she does. She is going to be 37. Almost every major female actress has talked about how when you hit 30-35 the roles start dropping off and your prospects for a great role at 40 diminish significantly. She has had every opportunity to shine (acting, singing, dancing, fashion designing, modeling, directing) and has really spread herself thin and the result has been average to mediocre performances and product.

    If her goal is to work at something she loves then she is doing that. She is no Meryl Streep, Helen Mirran, Dame Maggie Smith or Cate Blanchett. I don’t think she is going to get the critical acclaim they all have and do.

    But with her track record of box office bombs and luke warm acclaim, as well as an average talent I’d say she is doing pretty good getting parts in this very competitive business. If she didn’t have contacts she’d probably have faded into obscurity.

  • Just a Comment

    If you have ever seen in person a celebrity or actor that is currently active and successful you will find they are very slender (because film and photography adds pounds to your frame) and they look very well taken care of (nice teeth, skin, hair, etc), so many look YOUNGER than their actual age. But even then HOLLYWOOD draws the line for women. Example; Reportedly Halle Berry will be recast for a younger woman (but Hugh Jackman won’t) http://www.dailymail.co.uk/tvshowbiz/article-2771270/Michelle-Williams-puts-Brooklyn-home-shared-Heath-Ledger-market-7-5million-plans-LA.html

    #37 Caryn – I agree with your post about Katie’s career. Only thing is that Katie is going to be 36 in Dec 2014 NOT 37. But it was a good post. Not a haters post. A realistic post. Katie has been blessed to have tried her hand at many creative forums and not been very successful in those fields. Unfortunately women in Hollywood are racing against time especially those with less talent than the magatalents of Meryl Streep, Judi Dench, Dame Maggie Smith, Cate Blanchett (40′s), Amy Adams, Juienne Moore (52), etc. The good news is that television & Amazon (streaming) and Netflix (streaming) are producing great shows like Breaking Bad, Orange is the New Black, etc.

  • Kerri

    Kerri Russell has been mentioned here before. She is 38 and certainly not in the top tier of modern actresses but she manages to do tv and movies. There are jobs to be found.

  • Missy

    Yes but where was Kerri’s career 2-3 years ago? She definitely faded for a while. She tried to do a tv show that was cancelled after 1 season. She wasn’t getting good movie roles and most were critical and commercial flops.
    Kerri has made a comeback and Katie can too.

  • Kerri

    She has a daughter about 3 so a couple of those years were being pregnant and taking care of an infant.
    She bounced back pretty good.

  • Missy

    Well, she was working consistently during those years. Her films and tv shows just weren’t very good. I like her so I’m glad that she has found some success.

    Its hard for women in Hollywood. Here’s an article from John Cusack on Hollywood and Women. Most people won’t make these kind of statements or directly say they went through the casting couch but there are many statements of “others” after the fact:

  • Just a Comment

    A movie clip with great actress Julianne Moore (52) in the upcoming movie Maps to the stars where she plays an actress trying to get a part in a movie. An actress has to be ahead of the pack in the talent dept to still be working over her fifties. But people look younger today (if they take care of themselves) then they did 20 years ago. I hope Julianne Moore wins the Oscar for Best Actress for Alice next year. She’s been a bridesmaid several times but not the bride. The movie Maps to the Stars won’t be released in the United States until next year.
