And so, for the last time this year (and the third time in three days after 'The Danish Girl' on Tuesday and 'Daddy's Home' yesterday) I'm in Leicester Square for a premiere, and to me this was the BIG one : Tarantino's Hateful Eight. The fact that this is my last premiere for the year, and not the unveiling of Disney's shiny new merchandise licensing fundraiser makes me very very happy.
And I'm a fan of Tarantino's. .... and his wasn't even necessarily the biggest name I wanted to photograph on the night.
Here's how, for the last time in 2015, it went down:
It was almost time to head out and go home.. but they kept us in the pen until the stars left (fortunately within ten minutes of entering, not after the full 3hr movie!). By then, the rain had intensified, my jacket was considerably more water-logged, and I hadn't yet discovered I'd locked my keys in the office and somebody had locked up the office..... an entirely separate adventure well outside the purview of this journal.
So that was that... 2015's SIXTY FIRST event, by my count, including all premieres, standalone Apple store events, Award ceremonies, pretend award ceremonies... and even a singular book launch.
Will I be doing this again next year? Well, it depends, as always, but hopefully. So. For now, it's another one for 'The Archive of Movie Premieres'. And if you want to know whenever I post a new premiere journal, feel free to follow me on twitter @berndt2_photo or on facebook by clicking here
Until next Time / Year!
