February 17th, 2015.
Just one day ago, I was feeling the heartbreak and heartache of seeing my favourite actress Charlize Theron attend a premiere with her undoubtedly imminent-fiancee Sean Penn for "The Gunman"... today I was able to find solace in an Indian movie where the average age of the cast (even with three young members) exceeded that of even the aforementioned Sean Penn.
And that was BEFORE the Royals showed up. Here's how it went down:
At this point, everybody made sure they were inside (except Maggie Smith, who had more or less always been inside) and only security remained on the carpet as an entourage stopped at the far end, and made their way up the carpet to the entrance....
So that, rather implausibly, was that. Two premieres in two days this week, two premieres in two days last week (Focus, with Will Smith and Margot Robbie; and Fifty Shades of Grey, with me feeling very much out of my depth), following in on from The 2015 Baftas and the shooting of the Sherlock Christmas Special on the street where I work.
And the journal entry for the original "Best Exotic Marigold Hotel" (coldest premiere ever) is here
It's going to be quiet for a little while... but hopefully it'll only be a brief hiatus for the ongoing growth of my Archive of Movie Premieres which is here.
Until next time!
