March 6th, 2016.
Back in 2011, after a year back in Australia, I returned to London for a second Tour of Duty determined (among other things not yet accomplished) to continue doing premieres. And the very first one I did upon coming back? Kung Fu Panda 2.
It's 5 years later, and just like it was then, it's a weekend premiere. Here's how it went down:
And after all of that, we were led into one of several screening rooms in the Odeon Leicester Square, got a free bottle of water and an authorised merchandising tie-in Kung Fu Panda Fortune Cookie (Mine read : "May your life be as long a panda's restaurant bill" -which suggests I'm not long for this world since pandas typically don't eat in restaurants, so thanks for the death-curse, Dreamworks..) (....so I decided to double-or-nothing it with a second fortune cookie, which read "when in doubt, have another dumpling" so maybe I'm going to be okay if I can find a Chinese restaurant).
Until next Time!
