So, guess who got a ticket to the premiere? That’s right! ME! I got a message this morning from one of the contests I entered informing me that I was NOT a winner. Gee, thanks.
Then, this afternoon, a Twitter friend let me know she WAS a winner, and had an extra ticket, so did I want it. Of course I said YES!!
Here’s the problem. I want to see Richard Armitage WAY more than I want to see the movie. I am going to see the movie anyway on August 9th at the Into the Storm NYC Fan Event. Most likely won’t see much of Mr. A. in the theater at the premiere. If I were him I would leave the red carpet as soon as possible and not sit through the film, but get myself to the airport and back to London ASAP on Monday!! He has The Crucible to get through on Tuesday, after all. He needs to rest up!
So that means I have to be OUTSIDE the theater to see him, not INSIDE. I’m not sure what to expect, and welcome advice from anyone who has gone to the premiere of a film. I am told that there were more passes distributed for the movie than there are seats, so first come first served. Decisions, decisions! I am very grateful.
I have no idea what the setup will be, but I’ll get there early to scope it out. As promised, I will run to my computer as soon as I get home and report here on what happens. I am particularly looking forward to seeing many of my Richard Armitage fan website repesentatives with press passes issued by Warner Bros. Studios get the chance to ask Richard Armitage questions that the pros never manage to. This should be an unforgettable experience!
