August 21st, 2015.
It's been so long since London last had a bona fide premiere (though there was an Apple Store event for 'Me and Earl and the Dying Girl' yesterday) that even though I had no interest in this film AND no knowledge of its stars AND no umbrella to accompany the intermittent rain... I went anyway.
Here's how it went down:
And on that ignominious note, I'm going to declare defeat at this premiere : it was loud, it was crowded, I recognised nobody from the main cast and I'm not really in the target market for the show, the movie, the merchandising tie-ins or any incidental fashion trends it spawns.
I can only say : I'm sorry.... and/but no matter how inept, it still gets to join my Archive of Movie Premieres, gently nestled somewhere around Captain America and The Baftas, I suppose.
Until next time!
