January 10th, 2012.
In a bit of a sobering reality check in the wake of uber-premieres like "War Horse" and "Mission Impossible Ghost Protocol" , the 'premiere' for the movie "Margin Call" one day after War Horse proved to involve two of the cast walking through a London cinema's side entrace after being dropped off in ill-lit backstreets of Chinatown. (It felt more like I was being an evil stalker than at a premiere, regardless of what the websites said, so I'm holding off posting that journal while my conflicted soul sorts itself out).....
Anyway, one day after THAT, here's how the 'Gala Screening' of the movie 'Shame' went down (I missed the premiere itself last year, as I was out of town)
So... that was that (... and I don't think I saw her ever again). Fortunately, tomorrow's premiere was the premiere for "Madonna's W.E." which went much better. Meaning : no unrequited attraction to inexplicably cute photographers combined with an ACTUAL premiere.
Until next time, I'm guardedly putting it into "My Archive Of Movie Premieres"
