Keanu Reeves came today to Caltech to present his new movie: The Day the Earth Stood Still, which will be on theaters from next Friday. He came along with the director of the movie and the rest of the panelist were two Caltech professors: one cosmologist and one biochemist.
At 5, there was dinner served in the lawnyard in front of Beckman Auditorium and then we moved into the auditorium, where the panelists were presented. Of course the star was Keanu Reeves and, believe it or not, Caltech professors! Then, 5 minutes of the movie, with some funny too patriotic comments for international students... hehe... and then, a Q&A session.
I was very surprised Keanu Reeves was not the main point of attention. Many questions were scientific, for professors, and many were addressed to the director.
In general, an ok event, but nothing special.
