June 22nd, 2017.
As far as I'm aware today was the hottest day in London in something like 40 years (or the hottest June day, at any rate) - enough so that even I, being from Australia, felt slightly foolish wearing jeans and a black t-shirt to a bright, sunny premiere in London's Leicester Square for Edgar Wright's new movie...
Here's how it went down:
So... that was fun. And when the organisers came around and asked if people in the pen wanted to go see the movie for free, I decided that, yes, I would. And while seated I had a huge urge to go to the toilet and returned to the theatre to find myself in the middle of Kevin Spacey, Lily James, Ansel Elgort, Jamie Foxx and Edgar Wright all waiting to go into the theatre and introduce the movie. There I was... camera over my shoulder, unable to take any photos because it wouldn't be cool. (And I know about cool).
Obviously, photos or it didn't happen, so it didn't happen. But I did enjoy the movie. And it's another one for the Archive of Movie Premieres
Until next time!
