I didn't get to go to the 'Body of Lies' premiere because, well, I'm actually employed. In a capacity other than going to movie premieres. Still, this one was supposedly going to be 'huge' because it was this year's Royal Film Performance movie, and even though I'd heard (though I couldn't immediately place) some of the actors in the film 'A Bunch of Amateurs', there were rumours (based on the word 'Royal' in the phrase 'Royal Film Performance') that The Queen might attend. And that was worth braving the... actually it didn't rain and it wasn't that cold. Or that crowded, all things considered.
It was worth being there, in other words.
And then they cleared the Red Carpet. As in CLEARED IT ENTIRELY. Why?
So in She went. And I decided, in an unprecedented move (to coincide with what could be an unprecedented chance to EVER photograph QE2) to actually STAY where I was for the full runtime of the film and try to photograph her again as she came out....
Anyway, as far as photography goes... that was a pretty good expedition. Next up, if I can drag myself there, is the Madagascar2 Premiere this weekend. Is it an afternoon premiere? Is it an evening premiere? Will Yellow Cap Guy make an appearance (I think we know the likely answer to that question....)
