More Info From The Sydney Premiere Party

From: Mark

I was at the Sydney premiere last night. Unfortunately the audience got very impatient because the 7pm speeches were delayed until well after 8pm. The impatience was capped off by a lack of air conditioning, so it was fairly uncomfortable (its Summer down here!). That got fixed just before the guests arrived.

Anyhow, I was seated just above the entrance to the cinema so had a bird's eye view of Elijah, Dominic, Billy, Orlando and Hugo. Mark Ordesky said a bit, then Barrie Osborne, and then he introduced the cast. They didn't stay to watch the movie! I think they zipped across to another cinema in the complex which was also premiering the movie.

As for the movie ... too much to take in in one viewing. It certainly didn't feel like 3 hours, and I haven't stopped thinking about it since. I'm seeing it again with friends on Boxing Day. I can't wait!

The after show party was at the Sydney Town Hall ... The entrance was a massive gold ring guarded on each side by Black Riders ... very atmospheric but unfortunately our tickets were for the movie only.
