There's been a bit of a lull in premieres in London for the past few weeks. Sure, the studio with the Mouse's Ears flew all the cast of Guardians of The Galaxy Vol2 all the way to London, put them up in hotels, booked a venue, hired security, put in place barriers... but then they had their cars drive directly into a side-gate without so much as lowering their windows, let alone slowing down. Thanks, Disney.
So perhaps it's fate that today, on Disney's May The Fourth Star Wars Day, another franchise had its world premiere in London.
Here's how it went down:
And so, that was that. A pretty good premiere, especially when measured by the standards of companies who are much bigger, much wealther, and elect not to have them when going 95% of the way to having them when they don't have them. So.... big thanks to Twentieth Century Fox for keeping the dream alive!
Oh, and weirdly, just as it was time to go (and just like he'd done back in 2012 at the premiere of 'Prometheus'), Tom Hardy showed up!
So... that was kind of a fun premiere, and (finally) another one for The Archive of Movie Premieres.
Until next time!
ps. if you ever want to find out when I post one of these premieres (or would like me to photograph your premiere or event or motion picture) feel free to follow me on facebook at premieresdotco, or on twitter at berndt2_photo.
