Ooh! A world Premiere - how exciting!! It means a lot more stars turning up, for one thing. And for another, it's the highly anticipated "Watchmen" - based on a graphic novel which made it onto Time Magazine's top 100 novels of all time list, has the director of the film '300' looking after it... and a Swedish actress in skin-tight latex.
So...Literary pretentions, stylised violence or hot actresses... take your pick if you want to justify going to see it! I certainly will, on the basis of all three, too! One downside : the cast is not (yet) Hollywood A-List and the movie posters all show them in costume, and I haven't read the book/novel/comic so the characters' names mean nothing to me. I'll muddle through somehow...
That was actually a very 'rewarding' premiere - just about the whole cast showed up, and they were really, really friendly, happy to sign autographs and the crowd was particularly well-behaved. I'm looking forward to the movie, when it comes out. Until then, I have a 'Watchmen' poster I liberated from the Premiere to decorate my place with.
The next scheduled premiere is 'Duplicity' on 19th March, but there are counter-rumours of 'lots' of premieres in March. Who is right and who is wrong? I'll find out eventually, I hope!
Until next time!
