Why Did Shatner Not Show Up At the LA Premiere?

Everyone seemed to be at the LA premiere except Shatner. Is he scared of crowds? Did he hate the fact that he wasn´t in the movie? Is he working? Or is he just greedy?

Well, he is a very busy man. Either he was under contract for something and could not show up or he could be a sore loser. Oh well, there is always hope in the next movie if there will be one.

I can pretty easily understand why he might or might not want to show up, given all the drama that surrounded this issue.

I'm sure Shatner has a good reason for not attending.

There were cameras there, after all.

They didn't pull out the brown M&M's like he asked.

Three words:

No free catering.

Then again, why was Sirits there? That self-serving witch...ugh, if she wasn't such a MILF I'd say she contributes nothing to Trek...ah hell I'll say it anyways...she contributed NOTHING TO TNG!!!

I'd say because there's no logical reason for him to BE there.

But he was probably just otherwise busy or engaged.
