Improvised Press Coverage From The Thor: The Dark World Premiere In London (UPDATE WITH PICS)

Okay, so thanks to Skype, I suddenly found myself in yesterday’s press pit for the premier of Thor: The Dark World. Unlike those around me I hadn’t seen the film. Unlike those around me, I didn’t have professional filming or recording gear. But I did have my iPad…

So here are a few snatched moments with Chris Hemsworth, Natalie Portman, Christopher Eccleston, Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje and Stellan SkarsgĂ„rd. There’s a reason Brendon usually does this sort of thing for movies and not me…

Tom Hiddleston whizzed past us without stopping, but I was able to use my premiere ticket, and an envelope handed to me by a friend, to vault the barriers and get *that* very spoilerish Young Avengers shot with the man. Which, unknown to me, was also broadcast on the big screen – spoiling Young Avengers for the whole crowd. Sorry… the god of mischief strikes again. But he was really excited to see it!

Joining me with Skype was photographer Ben Ellis who took this little video… with proper equipment.
