SIMON Baker, Joel Edgerton and Jon Polson found themselves in police lockdown at the weekend in an LA bomb scare.
The trio, and a band of famous faces including Kym Wilson, Nash Edgerton and Margot Robbie, were celebrating the launch of Tropfest LA at the Linwood Dunn Theatre in Hollywood when the evening was interrupted by the sound of sirens as police and a bomb squad were called to the building next door following a bomb threat.
Guests said as robots and sniffer dogs arrived, LA Tropfest launch revellers were told police were locking down their venue as a precaution.
“As a result guests were told to just hold tight which they did until the wee hours of the morning,” one Tropfest fan said yesterday. “Luckily they were in fairly high spirits.”
Some 2012 Tropfest finalists got more than they bargained for. They were let out at 1.30am.
