On 23rd February 2009, London held the World Premiere of Zack Snyder’s “Watchmen” - and I like both the movie and the graphic novel it was adapted from. Hence : a fond look backwards, with a 10th Anniversary “Noir” Red Carpet Monochrome journal of re-edited photos from that night. No comments, just photos.
Here’s how it went down:
So… that was that. Probably the oldest nighttime premiere I’ve been able to go back to and re-edit ten years later and found the photos to be…. reasonable, actually. They were taken on a Pentax K10D which was at the time 3 years old, with a 90mm f2.8 macro lens attached… though I hadn’t yet got into the habit of photographing the crowds and environment as much as I now like to.
As for the movie? I liked it. Own it in regular and extended cuts, and own the graphic novel in both paperback and (appropriately) signed ‘Noir’ hardcover versions.
Until next time!
ps. if you want to know when I post one of these journals (typically in colour and with commentary, as with the ‘original’ Watchmen premiere Journal here, or commemorative black’n’white journals such as the ones for The Avengers Age of Ultron RCM or Fantastic Beasts RCM) feel free to follow me on facebook, or on twitter.
