BFI London Film Festival continues with day 3, one day after the frankly sub-par premiere of 'Trumbo' with Bryan Cranston, Helen Mirren and John Goodman. But today was likely to be much bigger, as it featured more stars AND Tom Hiddleston.
Which is why it came as such a surprise that the public pen for this premiere was about 1/3 of the normal size Mayhem was more or less assured, in other words, and I was in that pen. Here's how it went down:
Obviously, this premiere had one major drawcard, and his lack of early appearance increased the agitation in the female-dominated public pen I was also in. Because the later Tom Hiddleston arrives, the less autographs he can sign, selfies he can pose for, and proposals of marriage he can (presumably) reject
So despite the crowding and the violence and the decay of the fabric of a moral civilisation, and me having to explain to a girl standing behind me that.. well... no, I wasn't really going to give up my spot for her merely on the basis that she claimed to (basically) deserve that spot more... it was some kind of Event. Something to tell the grandkids about (?), or failing that at least another entry into The 300+ links of The Archive Of Movie Premieres.
And I think I might take tomorrow off....
Until next time!
