The thing about World Premieres is that there's no governing body that decrees that a film premiere is, or isn't, or can, or can't be, a World Premiere. Anything can be a world premiere. Take for example this movie's World Premiere : it wasn't publicised in the Metro, it wasn't listed in any of the four or five websites that usually list London's premieres; there were no barriers and no wristbands; and per wireimage none of the three biggest names on the cast list (including the guy who plays Mozart in a movie starring Mozart) or the Director attended. But it still counts as a World Premiere.
And I was there. Here's how it went down.
But that was it. And with the stars seemingly settled in their seats and being plied with alcohol provided by their sponsors (who are not the Estonian brand Saaremaa which I heartily endorse) all that was left was to photograph some of the well-dressed human props used by stars to pose with and guests to admire:
Update : 13th May : I've trawled through my photos and found two more attendees : and both were in the movie!!
So... even though that was slightly more perplexing than fun, the extent of its perplexing-ness was high enough that there was some merit in it overall. I just wish it had been a 'real' premiere where might have been able to take some better photos. (I know, I know -it wasn't set up for the likes of me.... but, still. Would've been nice for there to have been better access). Although I shouldn't complain : as at now (three days later) this journal has had more views than the ones for Alien : Covenant and King Arthur : Legend of the Sword COMBINED.
So I would never deny it access to the hallowed halls of my archive of movie premieres, where it can confuse and bemuse myriads of people in the years to come... unless Squarespace's next inane update/upgrade somehow accidentally autotranslates it into Urdu or Sanskrit or Pirate or Hieroglyphs or something. But until then...
Until next time!
ps. if you ever want to know when I'm just sober enough to upload one of these journals, feel free to follow me on facebook at premieresdotco, or on twitter at berndt2_photo, or just hang out here on this website, pressing the refresh button obsessively to see if I've added anything (nb. after this Sunday's TV Baftas it looks to be fairly quiet...)
