War Crimes

Hilary Duff, her sister Haylie Duff and luminaries like Montell Williams, Marisa Tomei and others were on hand for the NYC premiere of her new movie War, Inc. which made its debut at the Borough of Manhattan Community College for the Tribeca Film Festival last night ... here are a few pics from the red carpet:

War, Inc. is Hilary's first "grown-up" movie wherein she doesn't play a Disney character or isn't courting a teen audience. You may recall this is the movie where she drops a scorpion down the front of her pants and has a kind gentleman fish it out for her. I smell an Oscar!!! Actually, I'm reserving judgment until I see the finished product myself ... but if her Eastern European accent is any indication of the film's merit, well, I'm not really holding my breath for an award-winner.

BUT ANYWAYS ... Hilary's very steady boyfriend, NY Islander Mike Comrie, was also in the hiz last night to support his lady ... and the feeling is mutual. Hilary has confessed that the sport of hockey is her latest obsession. Um, yeah. Here are pics of Hila-rie making their way into and then out of the War, Inc. premiere last night:

Hilary Duff can put away her Hockey for Dummies book. She's a full-on fan now, thanks to boyfriend Mike Comrie of the New York Islanders. "[Hockey] has kind of been a new obsession," Duff told PEOPLE at Monday night's premiere of her new film, War, Inc. "When I'm in New York, I'm going to hockey games a lot." And Comrie returns the favor. "He sits through days of press, of me doing interviews, like one after another after another, and doesn't complain about it," said Duff (who stars alongside John Cusack and Marisa Tomei in the offbeat political satire). "He was a good sport today." The 27-year-old Comrie also joined Duff – wearing a black Dolce & Gabbana dress and Christian Louboutin pumps – at her premiere, part of the Tribeca Film Festival. "It's fun to get all dressed up," said the 20-year-old. "I feel like I haven't done it in a long time." After the screening, the two chatted with moviegoers before heading over to Meatpacking District hotspot Tenjune for the after-party.

Ack ... they are so cute, I want to puke on my shoes. Well, at least they're happy together ... Hilary and Mike have been going steady for quite some time now, which is a very good thing. They do make a very cute couple so I can't really be mad at them. As long as Mike continues to stay in line, I'm sure they'll be very happy together for a very long time. [Source]
