May 20th, 2019.
I guess in some ways this movie could be seen as the spiritual successor to last year’s Bohemian Rhapsody, especially since directing duties in that film were ultimately taken over by the very director of this film - Dexter Fletcher. And not only is there no doubting the subject is a musical icon… he was even rumoured to be attending.
Here’s how it went down.
Somewhere between 5 and 9 hours later…
So… that was that. It was a frustrating premiere insofar as angles being difficult to come by, the carpet being very crowded, and the level of aptitude shown by Security being about on par with the average neanderthal who bangs two rocks together (and not in a Large Hadron Collider kind of way).
Still, as always, it’s another +1 to the Archive of Premieres, which must now be getting to within +/- 1 or 2 of 500 all-time premieres. I should probably check and buy myself something to drink and celebrate (or commiserate) the occasion.
….Until Next Time!
And I mean it about the Game of Thrones Spoilers.
