September 20th, 2015.
I've just been off on a week and a half trek around 'Oop North' of England, and who would have guessed it... but the first day back there's already a premiere. Is that an amazing coincidence or precisely how I planned it? Only my HR department can tell you for sure.
And this one? It's a world premiere, it's a prequel / reboot / public domain entity, and even more impossibly, it's a live-action movie made out of a property that Disney also has a version of, and it's NOT by Disney. Here's how it went down:
So.... that was big and rather impressive, even if I can't speak much as to whether I think the movie is intrinsically any good or not. It certainly looks like a sizeable production to get it to the big screen, and Hugh Jackman's wig looks suitably insane, and possibly CG.
Amazingly, it's the first of some 6 premieres in 8 days, but for now it's one new addition to The Archive of Movie premieres, the most recent additions to which were The 2015 GQ Awards and the two-Tom-Hardies-for-the-price-of-one movie Legend.
Until next time!
