March 2nd, 2010.
I'm sitting here in 2014 having never actually done a journal for this premiere, which I went to a mere four (4) days before heading off skiing, then taking a month off to travel around Europe before taking another month off to travel around Japan before moving back to Australia.
There is a reason why, no matter how bad my memories of the Alice In Wonderland premiere were, I didn't really feel like dignifying this premiere with the status of "my last ever premiere" because (a) it was a movie about soccer, (b) that I'd never heard of, (c) attended by nobody I'd ever heard of, (d) for a film that I've never heard anything about since its premiere (I just checked its imdb score... 4.9!)... and then within five months I actually WAS at a premiere... in Sydney, Australia, that blew this one out of the water.
But I can look back at it now with a little fleeting fondness, and revisit it, and edit the photos for the first time (without using photoshops to straighten horizons, even)... and create that missing journal.
Here's how it went down..
And so... for the first time EVER, this premiere is acknowledged and WILL be part of the Archive of Movie Premieres, complete with a link.
And because I'm sitting here in 2014 and know that this is NOT the end, I kind of CAN do what I wouldn't have done back in March 2010, and concluded this journal with...
... until next time (in Sydney!)
