Movie Premiere Press Release - Get Smart


Seeing Stars: Movie Premieres


    World Premiere of GET SMART Monday, June 16

    WHAT:   The all-new action comedy "Get Smart" sends Maxwell Smart (Steve Carell) on a mission to thwart the latest plot for world domination by the evil crime syndicate KAOS. When the headquarters of U.S. spy agency Control is attacked and the identities of its agents compromised, the Chief (Alan Arkin) has no choice but to promote his ever-eager analyst Maxwell Smart, who has always dreamt of working in the field alongside stalwart superstar Agent 23 (Dwayne Johnson). Smart is partnered instead with the lovely-but-lethal veteran Agent 99 (Anne Hathaway). Given little field experience and even less time, Smart--armed with nothing but a few spy-tech gadgets and his unbridled enthusiasm--must thwart the doomsday plans of KAOS head Siegfried (Terence Stamp).

    Warner Bros. Pictures presents, in association with Village Roadshow Pictures, a Mosaic Media Group / Mad Chance / Callahan Filmworks Production of a Peter Segal Film: "Get Smart," starring Steve Carell, Anne Hathaway, Dwayne Johnson, Alan Arkin, Terence Stamp and James Caan.
