May 9th, 2016.
It was only yesterday that I was south of the Thames for the 2016 Television Baftas and now one day later.... I'm back again, this time for an enigmatically-titled "Global Fan Screening" for the new X-Men movie. All I knew is that it was at BFI Imax, there were to be heaps of fans present, and it was forecast to rain.
Frankly, I couldn't wait. Here's how it went down"
So... that was rather large, impressive, and occasionally waterlogged. I didn't have to queue in a crowded pen for hours, but I did get to stand around in the rain for a while. Do I intend to watch the movie? Not really. X-Men is a bit of a one-trick pony with a cast that's really large and a tone that's too melancholy. And if I have to watch one more movie where Shit Gets Blowed Up Real Good this year, on balance I'd prefer it to be Independence Day Resurgence.
Still.. it was a fun event, it's another for the archive of movie premieres... and incredibly there's ANOTHER premiere tomorrow. And even more danger of rain. And crowding. And Johnny Depp.
Until next time!

You can also share this journal, comment on it below, or demand that I stop making them this long and rambling, or include more photo of pigeons if you want.
