Soul Surfer premiered at the Arclight in Hollywood last night, and stars hit the blue carpet in support of the soul surfer herself, Bethany Hamilton who was wearing a gold sequin dress by La Femme. Back in 2003, a tiger shark bit off Hamilton’s left arm while she was out on the water. The pro surfer got back on her board only a month after the attack and in 2004 penned a book which the movie is based on- Soul Surfer: A True Story Of Faith, Family And Fighting To Get Back On The Board.
AnnaSophia Robb plays a determined Hamilton supported by her parents, played by Helen Hunt and Dennis Quaid. Carrie Underwood also stars in the film as a church leader who inspires Hamilton to get back in the water, and Lorraine Nicholson (Jack’s offspring) plays Hamilton’s friend Alana Blanchard who was with Hamilton when she was attacked.
Also in attendance at the blue carpet premiere were Hilary Duff, Joe Jonas, Kevin Sorbo, Ross Thomas, Gregg Sulkin, Christopher Atkins and Amber Lancaster.
Check out the trailer for Soul Surfer after the jump. If you start to get emotional and can’t figure out why, just go with that feeling. If you don’t, then get yourself to the Wizard and ask for the Tin Man remedy.
