The Twilight Breaking dawn Part 2 had it’s UK Premiere last night at The Odeon, The Vue and The Empire Cinemas in Leicester Square, Yes All 3! A big premiere it certainly was and made all the more special by the fact that it is the last in the Twilight series just like the Harry Potter films. 2000 screaming fans were at the LA Premiere the previous night and I would say we were talking at least 1K minimum at this London event and probably easily more, maybe even 2K. Fans holding up signs saying they camped for 72 hours to see this premiere along with screaming and hysteria. It was all happening………where do you start?
This article fundamentally though is about one thing, position is all important at these premieres and is more important than camera gear as the final photos from this event prove. DISASTER is a word that springs to mind and to be perfectly honest after the Harry Potter experience of last year my hopes for getting anything resembling a usable photo were put at odds of 1000/1. Slim at best so I wasn’t expecting much by arriving about 3 hours before the premiere start.
