I love movie premieres. I’m a big fan of them and I go as often as I possibly can. And if you’re wondering, yes I am one of those lunatics that are sitting/standing for 6 hours before the movie is supposed to start. I love doing that, and sure by 11 o’clock I get a little loopy, but I promise it’s always a good time.
When I go see midnight showings I usually go through two very different feelings:
1. In the beginning I feel silly and geeky for being in line in a theater for 6 hours.
2. After a few hours, I feel like the least geeky person on the planet because I didn’t bring my DS, comic books, laptop and most importantly a costume from the movie I’m about to watch. (I have sort of promised my boyfriend that I will dress up as Catwoman for the next Batman movie, I’m not convinced.)
|Not so much this|
There is a sort of magic that happens at movie premieres that almost never happens elsewhere in my life. All these people are here for the same goal: to watch this long awaited movie. We wait for months and even years to finally have that moment. It’s like living through a bonding experience with plenty of strangers. Nothing confirms that as much for me than the clapping at the end. It’s almost like a personal and a group victory that we just watched this movie and that it was awesome.
And just so you know, Avengers is coming out May 4th and I am pumped because I haven’t been to a midnight showing in a long time. This is going to be awesome!
