Dateline: NYC — Into the Storm Premiere?

Into the Storm PremiereI’ve had some questions in email about the movie premiere (not to be confused with the general release which is August 8th U.S., August 22nd UK). I honestly don’t know where the Into the Storm premiere is happening or when. But there are some pieces to the puzzle, and I bring them for those who haven’t been paying attention.

  • Nathan Kress tweets about the premiere being in NY
  • The Old Vic having no tickets for sale on August 4th
  • The Old Vic being closed on Sunday
  • London being much closer to NY than LA
  • Richard Armitage having digs in NY

Here’s how it works out in my mind: a quick trip to NY on Saturday night after The Crucible performance, sleep on the plane, rest some more on Sunday, do the premiere on Monday (maybe in the afternoon; yes, they have movie premieres in the afternoon. Remember Captain America?), catch a flight back to London on Monday afternoon/evening, rest some more on the plane, no matinee on Tuesday (thank God!), ready for performance time on Tuesday night. Voila! a premiere done and only one Crucible performance missed!

Or the premiere could happen Sunday with a trip back to London on Monday morning.

Stop me. Someone please, please stop me. I have to get back to work!!

But aren’t you glad I have time to think about all of this for you. Not that this was too taxing, but I really am supposed to be working right now and here I am analyzing Richard Armitage’s schedule. *looks crosseyed* Hell, I bet he has a meltdown over his schedule at times, so I should not even begin to process this. No, no, I’m not really processing this. I’m just throwing this out for you to have something to think about, and especially for those who live close to NY or who can get there really quickly. LOL!

Truth: I do not know where or when this premiere is happening. Just wanted to say that again in case someone thought I really knew something. I don’t.

But if it were in NYC on Monday, August 4th or even Sunday August 3rd, I can dig it. Oh yeah. I happen to be attending a business conference there on August 2nd and 3rd. I was going to come back home on the 4th, but now I think I’ll stay an extra day just to ensure I don’t miss something. :D

Richard,

I can’t imagine anything sweeter than going to your movie premiere AND writing the plane trip off my taxes. So maybe you could talk to Warner Bros. and they could accommodate? Presumptuous I know, but really, this place wouldn’t exist if I weren’t presumptuous. I’ll stop with that thought as I feel a tangent coming on.

And I threw in that last detail about your digs ’cause if you’re like most people, you always rest better in your own bed. Man, you need all the rest you can get with that intense schedule.

Signed,
Your Crazy Fan

P.S. Could you also ask Warners if movie premiere tickets may be purchased by us regular Joes? I mean I think they could actually make a few bucks doing that, which would make for one helluva watch party. And you know your fans are well behaved. Of course those Nathan Kress fans might be a problem. ;-) But your fans won’t be. :D

Watch someone take me seriously about the comment on Nathan’s fans. For the record, I’ve met and interacted with quite a few of his fans, and they have all, to a person, been lovely. Impressive actually.

On an unrelated note: damn! Richard Armitage gives new meaning to ‘jobbing actor.’

And yes, that’s a lousy editing job on the movie poster. That’s what happens when I prepare a post in 15 minutes or less.

edit:

I think this is probably close to how it will go down:

Now I have to get back to my schedule. That was not a joke about working. I’m slammed.

When God Gives You a Kiss

The Hobbit Fan Event

This post is in no way meant to be sacrilegious, but honestly, some things work out so perfectly, you just know God was involved in it.

TheQueen was planning to visit her friend in upstate New York this week, when she learned of the Twitter contest for tickets to the fan event. Almost literally on the way out the door to catch her plane, she tweeted why she wanted to go to the fan event, and when she was in the midst of traveling, she received an email informing her she had won. Not only had she won but won very special guest passes. At least that’s what it sounded like to me when she described it. No waiting in line for her and the friend because she gets to go right in and meet with Warner Bros. PR. So if you see two ladies getting there late but moving right on in the door, don’t throw anything at them. They can’t help it that they’re VIPs. ;-)

And it could not have happened to nicer people. TheQueen and her friend, Heartfelt4-1, who some of you may recognize as a prominent fan fiction writer in the fandom, will be elegant and cool headed and just generally teach the proper decorum when seeing Richard in person. Other than that, I hope they go nuts and take lots of photos!!

So You Couldn’t Make It to The Hobbit Premiere…

No worries. Frenz is on the job. :D
