So after all the waiting, it's finally time for BFI London Film Fest. And I'd just come from a late lunch with a girl I really like to whom I'd had to explain that it wasn't that I'd EVER choose Keira Knightley and Benedict Cumberbatch over her, it's merely that I hoped it wouldn't come to that. But I'm guessing you don't want to know about my tragically nonexistent love life... you're probably here for photos of Benedict Cumberbatch.
Very well. Here's how it went down.
Benedict Cumberbatch, meanwhile, because you're interested, is still doing interviews and the odd bit of autograph signing / high-fiving / selfie-ing to my far right and out of view. Stay tuned... he'll get here eventually (at the premiere they had large screens that frequently showed his progress and whereabouts... I'll attempt to do the same here)
Meanwhile, directly in front of me:
And at that, Benedict Cumberbatch returned to the crowd to sign and hug and pose for a while, before returning to continue yet more media interviews.
So... that was that, and BFI London Film Festival 2014 is off and running. I'm pretty much planning to live in Leicester Square for much of the next fortnight.
It's another one for "The Archive of Movie Premieres"
Until next time! (ie. Tomorrow!)
