Bill Murray! Scarlett Johansson! Idris Elba! Christopher Walken! Lupita Nyong'o! All of them are in Disney's new live-action remake(ish) version of The Jungle Book - but none of them are in town for the European Premiere!
However, the Director, and the film's only non-CG character, and the voice of the Jaguar Bagheera from the film did attend. As did I, for my third premiere in three days, following on from Monday's "Eye in the Sky" and yesterday's "Florence Foster Jenkins".
Here's how it went down:
So... that was a fast one, an early one, and I still had upwards of 90 minutes to get home in time for a phone conference with the USA. Because this, oddly, isn't a paying gig. Still... it's another one for The Archive of Movie Premieres, and there aren't any at all next week, until we return the week after with two-in-two-days, one of which is Captain America : Civil War. I already can't wait to stay up til the wee hours to edit through those photographs.... I think I've got a bottle of Plum Sake on standby already.
Until next time!
