I'm not going to lie. I'm a grown-a55 guy and to my eyes this appears to be a particularly cynical attempt to manufacture a movie franchise-to-be that falls under the "YA" (young adult) classification. And even as somebody who's read and liked Hunger Games, and respected if not-entirely-was-sickened-by elements of Twilight... this looks to be the most corporatised rip-off of half-a-dozen better movies. They even have groupings no different to 'Gryffindor' and 'Hufflepuff' of Harry Potter (I swear I saw four bowls that basically amounted to Hogwarts' Sorting Hat).
However, I am nothing if not a raging hypocrite with a camera, so I headed down to Leicester Square for the premiere of this possible abomination (until I change my mind and profess it to be not half bad, which there's every chance of happening). Still... here's how it went down.
Oh, and excitingly Leicester Square hosted ANOTHER premiere before Divergent, and it was for Rio2 - no cast attended, but there were some celebs, among them:
So... that was my Sunday. Hope yours was good. Apologies if you're a fan of the books - feel free to tweet me and try to convince me to see the movie or read the books. But be aware that The Lego Movie is higher on my list of priorities.
On the plus side... it's another movie for my burgeoning Archive of Movie Premieres
Until next time!
