(FLASHBACK) : 'The Ugly Truth' - 10th Anniversary in RedCarpetMonochrome

August 4th, 2009/2019.

Of all the movies to celebrate, commemorate, or even decide to consciously recall, 2009’s “The Ugly Truth” isn’t exactly a frontrunner. However, I did find myself with a bit of spare time, and the ‘We Hate Movies’ podcast had semi-recently done a lengthy and funny episode on it…. so why not?

Here’s how it was at the time:

So…that was that. Ten years ago… and possibly forgotten by most, but it happened. (Don’t tell me it didn’t happen - I was there - I KNOW it happened!). A bit quiet on the 10th Anniversary front from here on in… seems I took a bit of a hiatus from this crazy hobby for a while after this one.

(FLASHBACK) : The 'Guardians of the Galaxy' 5th Anniversary in RedCarpetMonochrome

Five years ago, Disney/Marvel was still doing ‘real’ premieres in London. Especially for movies that, back then, felt like a risk - you gotta promote them, otherwise how would anyone know about the story of a kidnapped part-human and his band of aliens, trees and modified raccoons traipsing across the galaxy.

Good times. Why wait for the 10th Anniversary to re-edit in RedCarpetMonochrome, so here goes.

So… that was that. I’m pretty happy with those photos. The second film had an “alleged” premiere in London - at the Hammersmith Apollo, no less… but it was not accessible to the general public, sadly.
