May 24th, 2016.
It's been less than a week since my last premiere, and between that one ('The Nice Guys' with Ryan Gosling and Russell Crowe) and this one, I'd found time for a quick international trip to bridge the gap. I'd love to be able to say it was because I scored a sweet gig shooting a Charlize Theron glamour feature for a magazine you've heard of.... and as long as I'm not asked any legal type questions that's what I'm going to claim.
And now I'm back in London, and there's a premiere, albeit a small one. Here's how it went down:
So... that was that. There's another premiere, same time same place (different movie) tomorrow, but that one might be a bit trickier since there's rumours somebody pretty big from Game of Thrones might attend. There isn't really anything bigger than that show on this planet. And the Curzon Mayfair can't exactly host huge premieres without affecting the ability of London cab drivers to make opportunistic shortcuts through Mayfair or allow rich twenty-somethings to cruise the streets in expensive cars with foreign number plates. So who knows if anyone makes the Big Call to tell the Young and the Privileged to take the tube if they want to get somewhere.
Until then (or perhaps not), it's another entry for my "Archive of Movie Premieres", along with its last couple of entries, premieres for 'The Nice Guys', 'X-Men : Apocalypse' and 'The 2016 Television Bafta Awards'.
