It's been barely a year since I gave up the Empire Movie Awards to attend the premiere of "Divergent", the latest oh-so-profitable and oh-so-vital Young Adult franchise that tells vulnerable teens that only they can bring down the corrupt evil forces that plague our world.
And for the second time in a year, I despair because unless it involves something you can #LIKE on social media, nobody will do anything extra and corrupt and evil forces have nothing to worry about.
But who am I to care, I'm way outside the target market. Here's how it went down:
Incredibly, this premiere does not begin with an impromptu RAP session by Mr Impact and DJ Insurgentz.... but sadly with pre-recorded apologies from Kate Winslet, Naomi Watts and Octavia Spencer for not attending this WORLD PREMIERE. I appreciate the apology, but if this is a world premiere, then they and even the key grips and head of location insurance services should be here tonight. Still... we get underway....
So... that was enjoyable, if noisy. And it joins its predecessor, "The Divergent Premiere" from last year (which Kate Winslet and Miles Teller attended, and at which Shailene Woodley was unhealthily thin), as well as yesterday's "Insurgent Apple Store Event"... both of which are in my "Archive of Movie Premieres"
Until next time!
