Film Event: Alien Covenant Global Premiere

18 comments
Last week, I was incredibly fortunate to attend the Global Premiere for Alien: Covenant at ODEON's Leicester Square in London. Before heading in to preview the new film, I had a prime spot on the green carpet and managed to snap some photos of the stars including Michael Fassbender and director, Ridley Scott. Here's a closer look...

Held at the famous ODEON Leicester Square cinema in London, hundreds of die hard Alien fans gathered to catch a glimpse of the green carpet. Being the official Global Premiere, it was amazing to see that people had travelled from around the world to be there. With the film's director, Sir Ridley Scott and majority of the cast in attendance, the night had an incredible atmosphere and I felt very privileged to have a prime spot. The skies may have been grey but that certainly did not kill the buzz. 

It's safe to say that no expense was spared in the preparation of this premiere. The place looked amazing with all the alien displays and props dotted around everywhere. The cast made their way through the carpet and down to the stage where they were interviewed by Edith Bowman (pictured above). With all the interviews done and dusted, it was finally time to take our seats inside. I've always loved visiting ODEON Leicester Square - not only does it have funky leopard print seats but it really feels like a special occasion whenever I've been there and always makes for a great premiere location. 

Finally, it was time to see it. Having taken our seats, the cast came on with Edith Bowman to introduce the film and say a few words. Unfortunately the film is under embargo until the 8th May but, fear not, I will be sharing my thoughts very soon! All I can say is that it's well worth making yourself familiar with the previous films before giving it a watch to truly get the full experience.

Well, that's it for another film event. Will you be seeing Alien: Covenant in cinemas? What expectations do you have of the film? As always, I love reading your comments so please do leave me lots of lovely ones down below. Again, a ginormous thanks goes to ODEON Cinemas - I am eternally grateful for the opportunity to attend this event. 

Until next time film fans - game over, man

    1. Haha don't worry. I really didn't find it jumpy or scary - it's really more just gorey if anything xx

  3. As usual, your photos are top notch, Sophie! Good job in fixing the photo with the really bright light with Katherine Waterson and Michael Fassbender. I liked Prometheus so I'm curious to see your review for Covenant. :) It won't come out for general release until next week in the US.
