As you know I was fortunate enough to go along to the John Carter UK Premiere held at the BFI London a couple of nights ago and see the 3D spectacle that is the mighty John Carter at it’s first public screening in the UK as well as rub shoulders with the cast and team behind the film.
It was a star studded evening with many of our special cousins making their way across the sea to be here on this special night. The evening started with gymnasts on jumping stilts doing somersaults under flaming torches along the red carpet to cheers and only got better from there. Our review of John Carter can be found here! And all our John Carter coverage by clicking here! The QA with Andrew Stanton can be found at the bottom of the page.
And the evening ended with an entertaining and insightful QA session with Andrew Stanton hosted by The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy Director Garth Jennings.
