I'll be honest, I felt a bit rusty going to this one. And a bit worried. You see, I had Trek tendencies a while back and, much like Star Wars, these once mighty franchises have become a bit of a laughing stock due to overexposure and George Lucas' greed (well... one more than the other on that reason). So.... would it be excruciating seeing a whole crowd filled with Klingons, Borg and Ferengi, or would it be really sad if there weren't many.
... but who cared? As long as one (1) cute actress showed up and I got a JJ Abrams autograph, I wouldn't mind.
So.... I gotta say that was a pretty fantastic premiere. It might not have been the world premiere at the Sydney Opera House (that ironically I could have gone to had I never moved to London), but... well... this was pretty awesome. Plus there are more premieres to come. For instance : tomorrow, possibly, for "State of Play.
You'll note that daylight savings has started in London as well... nice to have some natural light at these things.
But in any event, until next time!
