9 Jun - Now... in the wings (etc) premiere

For some odd reason, the PR and Promotions people of London had a collective brain aneurism and scheduled three events at more or less the same time on the same day. I flipped a coin and a magic eight-ball and went to the one with Kevin Spacey. I'd never photographed him before.

There was one sobering issue, though. There weren't many autograph dealers present, providing an ominous indication that the premiere for the movie 'Chef' on the other side of town might feature more than just Iron Man director John Favreau... and might actually include Iron Man, Avengers and Thor alumni like Scarlett Johansson,Robert Downey Jnr and Mark Ruffalo, all apparently in town filming Avengers 2.

So with that hanging over my head, here's how it went down.

We're off to a promising start, and it has nothing to do with this film / documentary, which apparently is about  "Kevin Spacey, Sam Mendes and the Bridge Project Company reveal(ing) some of the most intimate moments behind the scenes of their staging of Richard III."  Thanks, imdb.

Kevin Spacey is wearing a crown and glowering at me from the poster, which suggests I'm in the right place. But the title of this thing is a ridiculous mouthful _"Now : In the Wings on a World Stage"_ - and I SWEAR I had to go online to re-re-remember it because it' appalling. It's as if a focus group met up and couldn't decide between three different titles and decided not to settle it with Trial By Combat like civilised people would.

Our first arrival is wearing a slinky black dress, and at this point neither wireimage nor getty has any photos of this event.... even imdb has most of the cast in 'friendly' grey silhouette rather then biographical pics. That's a pity. Nobody looking this cheerful in a black dress should be snubbed like that.

Typical. Throw out a compliment and somebody else takes the credit.  Edited to add : she's Annabel Scholey, and according to imdb she's best known for being the voice of Ginny Weasley in the Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows video game. Really? Bonnie Wright couldn't do her own lines?

"I'll sign this as me if you can tell me my name, if not then I'm signing it as Kevin Spacey".  Thanks to this premiere, I've now seen Kevin Spacey's autograph and I'm willing to suggest a fake one would have the advantage of being more legible.

"I think I nailed the audition"   Edited to add : she's Katherine Manners. Not that the name helps much : imdb has no idea who that is, while wikipedia helpfully prompts me that she might be Katherine Manners, 19th Baroness de Ros, who died in 1649? Well done, internet

I don't know who this is, but based on the number of females on the imdb cast listing, my options are limited to Maureen Anderman ("Duchess of York"), Haydn Dwynne ("Queen Elizabeth") or Andrew Long if Andrew is a girl's name and the girl is playing the role of The Bishop of Ely.  Edited to add : she's Haydn Dwynne, so pay up if you lost that particular bet

"Hi, I'm Kevin Spacey and I've won two more Oscars than any of y'all, unless you were in one of those technical categories in which case I congratulate you".  I've never actually photographed Kevin Spacey, and I've never been snubbed by Kevin Spacey either, but both of these things were set to change on this hallowed afternoon!

"Hey, you two should know totally each other. You were both in that movie"  If it's not the improbably named "Now : In the Wings on a World Stage" I'm sure its title is/was a lot shorter.

When Al Pacino signs autographs, the music in his head is probably heavy metal, but for Kevin Spacey, I'm thinking Bach. Alternatively, it's a special request from the security dude who'll beat up anyone who tries to get Kevin Spacey to sign something from a movie he's not actually in.

This, based on an intimate analysis of the imbd cast listing of this thing, is most likely to be director Jeremy Whelehan. And his hat.

This man, on the other hand, I can't track down, but the hair and beard are both lustrous. And an open shirt without tie is a great look, I've been told. (My wristwatch is a Seiko).

Giant security guard also takes a dim view of wonky horizons. Bad composition in photography is a sign of a lazy mind (and Dutch tilts are often over-used). I think the actress is Gemma Jones, and she plays Queen Margot in the film / documentary.

Nick Moran breezes past just long enough for me to recognise him from the Paparazzi list. He's best known for being in the film Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels, but was also the unfortunately-named "Scabior" in the last two Harry Potter films. Not playing a heroic figure, I'd assume.

Meanwhile, being the great actor that he is, Kevin Spacey is answering questions with just his right hand. His right hand is his Acting Hand, as everyone knows. The left one mainly answers fanmail and does sudoku.

I think she's a singer and she's not affiliated with the film. So that should narrow it down...   Edited to add : she's actually artist Tracey Emin, whose (unmade) work 'my bed' was shortlisted for the 1999 Turner prize and was bought by Charles Saatchi £150,000 and is currently on sale...

So... that was some kind of thing.Kevin Spacey elected not to sign my Moleskine journal, but that's okay so did Heather Graham at Hangover part I, so he's in good company (or vice versa).

In the end, I'm still not sure whether it's called "NOW", "Now" or "#NowTheMovie" or whether you have to refer to it by its full title "Now colon In the Wings on a World Stage".... but one way or another it goes into The Archive of Movie Premieres 

Until next time!

5 Jun - BELLE premiere

The last premiere I went to was last week and Tom Cruise's Edge of Tomorrow . Now, just one week later and London's Southbank gets its second consecutive premiere, with the little known (?) 'Belle'.

Here's how it went down.

BFI Southbank doesn't get a huge amount of premieres, but it's not a bad spot, especially on a nice and sunny day. And I have photographed  Their Royal Highnesses William and Kate  there, and separately  Daniel Radcliffe (aka Harry Potter)   for The Woman In Black... in a related note, refer later in journal.

That's actually a pretty impressive list, even if you remove singers, presenters, Radio DJs, sportsmen, actors from other films, reality TV judges and people who were incidentally on TV once in a show you've (I've) never heard of.

Not only is Amma Assante involved in this movie, she's the Director of it. That said... she might or might not sign that, whatever 'that' is. (In the absence of evidence, I'm going with "Thrash Metal LP from 1981")

"I'm happy to sign, as long as you understand the film company's lawyers won't see it as my endorsement of your copyright infringement"  I hear Amazon patented photographing something on a white background recently, so we're all probably breaching copyright every time we adjust our backpacks.

Based on the fact that I'm not ageist, I would say on sheer confident posture and expression, that the short lady is a writer or producer of this film? No? Probably more likely she's Cara Jenkins, then, who plays 'Young Elizabeth' in this film.

"I'm not sure what that is. If it's a script by David S Goyer, it's best to leave it alone." . Side-note: I recently rewatched 'Man Of Steel'. I'll defend the awesome Hans Zimmer score, but that script needs a pen, a needle and a few gallons of gasoline and a match. (Also : there's a premiere for "Belle" I should try to talk about).

Didn't like "Man of Steel" either. She's Gugu Mbatha-Raw and the fact that you or I might not have heard of her does not remove the fact that she's had multiple episode character roles in about five TV series (none of which, other than Dr Who, I've heard of either) and numerous movie roles as well.

Ever since the first premiere I photographed him at, I've referred to Tom Wilkinson as 'Crime Boss Falcone in Batman Begins' but that reference is ageing more and more as that movie fades and Tom Wilkinson is both in a lot of movies AND attends a lot of premieres. Offhand, I'm remembering  Rock'n'Rolla   ,  Best Exotic Marigold Hotel   ,  The Debt   ,  Valkyrie   ,  Duplicity   , .... PLUS he was in  Mission Impossible Ghost Protocol   and  The Lone Ranger   , whether he attended those premieres or not.  Here, in contrast to his impressive filmography, he's merely admiring the world's longest arm.

Gugu Mbatha-Raw and Sam Reid pose. Sam Reid, incidentally, was in (and at the premieres of.. I think) both  Anonymous (2011)  and  The Railway Man (2013) . He's got a certain Tom Hardy vibe about him... insofar as he's wearing a suit, I suppose.

In a transparently obvious attempt to justify yet more Sarah Gadon photos in this journal, I'm going to quickly opine that if Scarlett Johansson wants out of The Avengers, you could do a lot worse than Sarah Gadon. (Keira Knightley, randomly, and for instance, would be 'doing a lot worse').

It's Draco Malfoy, all grown up! Actor Tom Felton hit a major growth spurt by the time of the second or third Harry Potter film and started dangerously towering over Potter.

Way back in time at the BFI London Film Fetival in 2011 (12?) the lovely Sarah Gadon showed up for the premiere of  Antiviral  and I was very saddened, nay disgusted to see she turned up in what looked like an Adidas tracksuit. Now, years later... she makes an effort and here I am, wearing a grey Lonsdale hoodie to her premiere. If we're ever going to make a meaningful connection when we're both looking our best, I'm going to have to look out to 2018 or 2019... but I'm not sure I can commit that far ahead.

Once all the main stars had begun doing interviews across from me and showed little inclination to turn around, I headed up to Waterloo Bridge to check out the view and what I might have missed. It's a nice view, but other than shots of people posing in front of the Paparazzi, it's not that great.

So that was actually rather good. There are FIVE premieres in London next week... and somebody at multiple PR firms needs to get fired because THREE are on MONDAY and TWO are on WEDNESDAY. Surely that's in no film's interest? I for one can't wait to throw a dart at a dartboard and figure out which one I'll head to, if any.

Until next time then, it's another one for The Archive of Movie Premieres

28 May - Edge of Tomorrow premiere

Way back in 2010, I was in Japan when I picked up the book "All You Need Is Kill" from a local Kinokuniya bookstore. It was AWESOME. And then, weirdly, a few years later I heard that it would be turned into a movie starring Tom Cruise. And here I am, some four years later, in London, at the premiere of the film, now called "Edge of Tomorrow". (btw : I missed the premieres of Godzilla (2014), XMen Days of Future Past and Two Faces of January as I was out of the country, not because I don't care!)

So... Edge of Tomorrow. Here's how it went down.

Incredibly, the time is 6 IN THE MORNING. Because in keeping with the 'time loop' premise, there will be two more premieres today - the first in London, the second in Paris (early afternoon) and the third in New York just before midnight. I assume Tom Cruise and Emily Blunt will not be flying Economy Class and attempting to look refreshed at each location.

The location : BFI Imax. The crowd : HEAVING at that time of day. Honestly, I thought it would be deserted, but people had been camping overnight and/or gotten there as early as 5am to get a good spot. I'd set a 4:00am alarm and taken a 5:00am train and only got into the 2nd row.

In a development so unusual that the word "Unprecedented" doesn't do it justice, they had people handing out FREE coffee, tea, juices, water and even MINI-MUFFINS to the fans who'd gotten there. That's got to be a Tom Cruise directive, if only because no premieres treat fans as well as Tom Cruise premieres. (I even scored a free T-Shirt for saying I was from Australia!) (Thanks!!)

"Doug? Well,...he doesn't look like me, for starters" It goes without saying that the first star to arrive at the premiere was Tom Cruise, about half an hour early, to start doing interviews and sign for fans.

Actress Charlotte Riley, arguably best known as "Actor Tom Hardy's Girlfriend" at the premiere of Locke, last year. (Mainly because I don't watch TV, where she's been in any number of things I haven't seen, including but not limited to 'The Take', 'The Town' and 'World Without End')

OMG it's Director Doug Liman!! Before you're all, like, "Who's Doug Liman??" he directed no less than The Bourne Identity with Matt Damon, Mr & Mrs Smith with Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie, the underrated Fair Game with Noamie Watts and Sean Penn... and, okay, Jumper starring Hayden Christensen.

Tony Way set off numerous "He's the guy from.... (draws total blank)" in my mind, so thanks to IMDB.com, which informs me that I've seen him in Finding Neverland, The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo, Anonymous, London Boulevard and Ali G Indahouse (my taste in movies is not up for discussion at this time). Also he's in Game of Thrones.

(draws total blank)" in my mind, so thanks to IMDB.com, which informs me that I've seen him in Finding Neverland, The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo, Anonymous, London Boulevard and Ali G Indahouse (my taste in movies is not up for discussion at this time). Also he's in Game of Thrones.

I don't know who this is. Which is doubly odd since he seems to think we met in a dark alleyway and I might have mugged him at some stage.

I'm declaring the guy on the left Hiroshi Sakurazaka, author of "All You Need Is Kill", the novella this movie is adapted from. It's pretty awesome, albeit slightly different to the movie. Oh, I'm sorry... you were probably looking at the lady in the Red Dress. I don't know who she is.

Merely showing up punctually (which counts as 'conspicuously late' at a Tom Cruise premiere) is the lovely Emily Blunt, whom I haven't photographed since the premiere of  The Young Victoria  all those years ago.

....except it wasn't!! By sheer coincidence, I had accidentally been bundled into the Competition Winners Pen, and even though I wasn't a competition winner, the three people near me who WERE actually had a spare fourth pass.... so I got to watch THE MOVIE with them! (and I had taken the day off so I had time to see it!)

And… the movie is very good, I say, even though I was plied with free orange juice and mini-muffins which might suggest a conflict of interest. So watch it!

So... after an absence, I'm back doing these things, and (finally) have a new entry into The Archive of Movie Premieres

until next time!

11 Apr - The Amazing Spider-Man 2 premiere

After three  premieres in three days last week, this week I have to make do with just one. On the plus side, it's a World Premiere for the new Spider-Man movie. And after arriving somewhat late I luckily was able to talk my way into the main pen to a spot in the third row next to the main stage. With the lovely Emma Stone set to be in attendance, and a huge heaving crowd already there, I had low expectations but high hopes.

Here's how it went down.

My spot isn't actually all that bad, and Sony have certainly spent pretty big on this particular premiere, from the custom carpet to the three-axis premiere setup that stretches to a cinema on the other side of the 'Square.

"When's Batman going to be here?"  Sadly, there's still about an hour and a half to go before this premiere gets going. And we still have to have a costume competition and a rap battle. AND I have to do a danger assessment on which of the girls around me would cheerfully knife anyone getting between them and an Andrew Garfield autograph.

"Dont be concerned about your lack of height in this competition. Haven't you been watching Game of Thrones?"  Tyrion Lannister does totally rock. But this was, like, really a four year old kid, I think.

We're underway and our first arrival is Spider-Man himself, Andrew Garfield, half an hour early to start signing in all three axes of this premiere's layout. The bus didn't linger.

Did I mention they also had free facepainting, toy and merchandise giveaways, and the distribution of Spider-Man themed 3D glasses? They certainly didn't have that at Steven Spielberg's War Horse back in 2011, that's for sure.

"Kitchen Sink? We're keeping that under wraps"   Matthew Tolmach is one of the four (five?) producers of this film... which might sound like a lot, but there are at least that many people with writing credits, too. _Kitchen Sink_ is a movie he's producing that is currently in post-production.

"Kitchen Sink's gonna blow your mind"  I just checked on imdb and read the synopsis. It kind of might.

Avi Arad is one of four (five?) producers of this film - but he's particularly noteworthy as he's produced Marvel movies from all three major studios to own portions of the movie rights. X-Men with Fox, Spider-Man with Sony, and Iron Man with Paramount. That's kind of like fighting with complete loyalty on three different sides of a war.

"Let's have a moment of silence for Tobey Maguire. He was a good soldier"  and a semi-decent Spider-Man in a prior iteration. Still, if Sony wants to keep hold of the rights they'll have to keep making movie which means everybody on the planet will possibly eventually get to play Spider-Man. Like, even Avi Arad.

Marc Webb also directed the prior Amazing Spider-Man movie which in my opinion was approximately 'adequate' on a scale of 1-10 (I was at the end of a lengthy 24hour dual sting plane trip to the UK so that might have been a factor outside of his control), as well as directing Joseph Gordon-Levitt and Zooey Deschanel in "500 Days of Summer" which I really liked. The tie he's wearing is nicely understated, too.

Dane DeHaan was great in the movie 'Chronicle' which I didn't like as much as I would have because, as I'll tell anyone who plies me with a couple of drinks and asks me to elaborate, I wrote a NaNoWriMo story that had the same premise as that film (except it would have required a James Camerom sized budget to realise and might actually have been more economical to build a whole city to destroy than model it in CGI). Never mind...

Jamie Foxx won a Best Actor Oscar for Ray in 2005, and has been Nominated for three Grammy Awards. As for Nobel Prizes for Physics? He and I have an equal number of nominations for those.

"I liked it how at the Iron Man 3 premiere Robert Downey Jnr just kidnapped a kid and took him on stage, so I'm going to do the same. Except I'm not going to ransom him or anything. I'm just going to keep him"  I suppose I'd probably be best off not getting sued by Sony or Jamie Foxx's people, so I'll concede that he was the son of the guy who designed the suit Jamie Foxx was wearing.

It's Emma Stone, which means over and above the director, actors, rap and dance music pumping at volumes sufficient to confuse migratory birds, heaving crowds, intermittent warm sunshine and general okay-ness, this premiere just got even better!

"Peace out, guys. I was not only paid to be in this movie, but I've got a free ticket to see this movie as well. That said, I hope I've inspired you to pay to see it."  Well... surely nobody wants to see Disney owning   Everything  , so perhaps there's a reason to wish this movie well.

"You there! What rhymes with 'put your hands up in the air'??"  I believe that since 1994, the answer has been 'wave them around like you just don't care'.... Jamie Foxx has taken to the balcony to spin diskz with DJ Whatsisname up in the Hizzle.

Needless to say I will not be traveling home by Silver Merc or in the company of Emma Stone. When traveling to my abode, I choose to spend eighty pounds per week for First Capital Connect services that are typically running fifteen minutes late. They don't even bother apologising or providing reasons anymore. (Sorry.. we were talking about Emma Stone?) (she's pretty awesome)

So that was rather exciting, I felt. I got home rather late..... but I also got photos of Emma Stone. And on most days, that's a trade I'm confidently happy to make.

Until next time, it's another one for The Archive of Movie Premieres

Which includes The Previous Amazing Spiderman premiere

Until next time!
