Stars come out for Book of Life premiere

Who says Monday nights were for staying home? Dressed in a striking cobalt dress, Gloria Estefan attended the premiere of the animated 3D movie, The Book of Life, at Regal South Beach. On the legendary singer’s arm was husband Emilio Estefan. After walking the red carpet, the couple took their seats in the theater and donned their disposable 3D glasses to watch the Halloween friendly flick. Before the screening, director/cowriter Jorge Gutierrez, actress Kate del Castillo and producer Guillermo del Toro introduced the film, which stars the voices of Diego Luna, Zoe Saldana, and Channing Tatum. “This is a movie from my heart,” said the portly Gutierrez, patting himself. Then added with a laugh: “And also my stomach.” The three were at the Epic Hotel on Tuesday to talk about the adventure movie, a love story that revolves around the Day of the Dead, in theaters Friday.
