July 18th, 2012.
Did you know that it's been A MONTH since I last did a premiere? (Other than the "Magic Mike" one, which I don't want to talk about?). It's true. It was Sony's presentation of a Sony Pictures Production of Sony's "The Amazing Spiderman" . And while that was fun, it was really only a placeholder til THIS premiere - that of the third Chris Nolan Batman film.
I might have mentioned previously that ever since I crossed "Scarlett Johansson" and "Ridley Scott" off the list, Chris Nolan has been the person I've most wanted to photograph as a fan of movies. So.... stakes were high. Crowds were massive. It rained for much of the lead-up. And I still had to shake off the demons of my poor performance at the original "Dark Knight premiere" where I didn't even get Chris Nolan in a single frame...
So here's how it went down.
So... that was pretty good actually!! I've bought my tickets to a 2:40pm session on Friday, and stand ready to be either WOWed, or suffer a Mass Effect 3-esque sense of disappointment, vertigo and soul-crushing depression. But whatever happens, I got decent shots of Marion Cotillard and Morgan Freeman, and first ever shots of Chris Nolan, Hans Zimmer and Joseph Gordon-Levitt.
And obviously this premiere is going front-and-center in the Archive of Movie Premieres
Until next time!
