August 10th, 2017.
it's been over two weeks since my last premiere, for Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets, and today's was a rather low-key affair - no wristbands, no public pen, no autograph dealers... in fact almost none of anything that a normal London premiere would have. But it was a premiere.
Here's how it went down:
it turns out that, as with the one (1) prior event I've photographed at Somerset House, the media action (such as it was) was taking place on the South Balcony with a small square of carpet surrounded on three sides by pens that were not for fans. But a small group of us were allowed to assemble next to the nearby Bar, where we (I) stood, wondering if my NSW Drivers License might pass cursory examination if I claimed it was my Media ID Accreditation.
So... that was that. And despite making light in the comments, the issue at hand is fairly important. Sure, you too could be playing golf and sending tweets to a despotic madman on the other side of the world daring him to be a complete fool while you plan the construction of a giant wall between your country and its neighbours..... or maybe you could try to make the world a better place. Or if even that seems a bit too much like hard work, perhaps try not to actively make things worse.
Until next time!
