Matthew McConaughey, Gina Gershon Hit 'Killer Joe' Premiere in TriBeCa

TRIBECA — Talk about a "killer" premiere.

Matthew McConaughey and his new bride, model Camilla Alves, turned out for the Cinema Society screening of his latest film, "Killer Joe" in TriBeCa Monday night, joining fellow newlyweds Tiki Barber and Traci Lynn Johnson, who tied the knot less than a week ago.

The film, directed by Oscar winner William Friedkin, features Gina Gershon as the mother of a young drug dealer, played by Emile Hirsch. When she steals his stash, he has to come up with $6,000 quick.

Desperate, Hirsch's character turns to McConaughey's "Killer Joe" when he finds out that his mother's life insurance policy is worth $50,000. Rather than being paid up front, Joe accepts collateral in the form of the drug dealer's younger sister, played by Juno Temple, complicating matters further.

The film — advertised as "a totally twisted deep-fried Texas redneck trailer park murder story" — earned a controversial NC-17 rating for graphic violence and sexuality.

Gershon and McConaughey were joined by Griffin Dunne, Kyle MacLachlan, photographer Terry Richardson, Alan Cumming, Roseanne Barr, John Stamos, S. Epatha Merkerson, Carla Gugino, Tony Danza, Nicky Hilton and more for the film and after-party at the Tribeca Grand Hotel.
