The whole purpose of a movie premiere is to show the film to people who can generate coverage to drive box office results. This often times come with a red carpet event prior to the screening of the movie so that the cast of the movie can be photographed and interviewed.

Though, over the years, this has been extended to more than just the actors of the movie as more and more personalities and influencers are getting invitations so that the film can leverage on their fan bases to gain more audiences.

An example of this is the recent Mission: Impossible – Dead Reckoning Part One Malaysian premiere held at LaLaport Bukit Bintang City Centre, where a bunch of local actors and influencers were invited to walk the red carpet.
