REGIONAL PREMIER OF THE FANTASTIC FOUR
OUR Staff at
Southport Reporter where invited to a fantastic night at Southport's
Vue cinema on the 12 June 2007.
The cinema was running one of the North West film premiers of the Fantastic Four. Ok, nothing out the normal for that, but what was so different was this was the first of what is hoped to be many.
The unusual event was
that the cinema had a live link to the UK's World Premier in London.
Viewers at the cinema
in Southport watched exclusive clips and footage being shown as well
as being treated to a goody bag....
Sadly, the actual red
carpet could not be rolled out as planned but, in all, the
experience was well worth it.
We look forward to
the next one.
We are adding some of
the audience’s views very soon... so please re-visit this page later
FILM REVIEW:- "Fantastic Four. Rise of The Silver Surfer"
IT was just as
well we got free popcorn at premier as we did not have time to leave
the action to get some.... as this is a far better film than the
first. It is really an enjoyable bit of sci-fi and a good take on
the comic book, with some funny, subtle jokes for the comic book
fans to enjoy.
Jessica Alba, who plays Sue Storm, is stunning as
ever. For the lads, just having her in the film makes it well worth
For the ladies, Doug Jones who plays The Silver Surfer is
well.... so I was informed by most of the many females in the
The last film left the story with the death of Dr. Doom and this one
takes up the story later on, as the Fantastic Four think life is
back to what they consider to be 'normal'. On top of that Sue
Storm is making plans to get married. Sadly it is all upset by the
arrival of The Silver Surfer and the rising up of Von Doom. If that
was not enough for the group of misfits, bigger problems are around
the corner when Galactus has decided that Earth is to become his
next lunch... I could go on, but that would spoil the plot for those
of you who don't already know the story.
This is well worth a view and it signals the start of what is going
to be a mad year of impressive films with Transformers, Shreck and
lots more to come.
On an note of interest... this film has been nominated already by
MTV for the title 2007 "The MTV Movie Award - Best Summer
Movie You Haven't Seen Yet 2007".
I don't quite know if that
is a good thing or a bad thing... only time will tell at the box
