Let me tell you how I’m still on Cloud 9! Thanks to the quite generous people of Disney and Marvel Entertainment, I recently attended the red carpet premiere of Thor: The Dark World this past Monday night. The #ThorDarkWorldEvent (I hope you were following the hashtag) was so surreal. I’m pretty sure I was pinching myself while I walked the red carpet to make sure I was really there. What an experience! Just the night before I had walked the red carpet for the Delivery Man premiere. When the time came to head to the Thor premiere, I was more than ready to re-live that red carpet magic that I experienced at Delivery Man! So once again, twenty-four other bloggers and I arrived on the Red Carpet at the El Capitan Theatre and eagerly awaited our turn to walk. The one word that keeps coming to mind when I think back at the moment of walking? AMAZING!
So let me chat first a little about the movie. Marvel’s Thor: The Dark World continues the big-screen adventures of Thor (Chris Hemsworth), as he battles to save Earth and all the Nine Realms from a shadowy enemy. In the aftermath of the last Avengers film, Thor fights to restore order across the cosmos…but an ancient race led by the vengeful Malekith returns to plunge the universe back into darkness. It is not long before Thor sets upon his most dangerous and personal journey yet, forced into an alliance with his not so trustworthy brother Loki (Tom Hiddleston).
Like the Delivery Man premiere, standing on the red carpet itself was a short moment. However, it was still quite surreal. Luckily one of my bloggy friends was able to use my camera to snap my red carpet moment for me. With my Thor-inspired shoes, sparkly dress, and big blingy earrings (I’m sorry you can’t see them in the photo!), I was ready to go and pose:
After my walk, we were ushered inside. What actually was really cool about the event was that inside on the big screen, the El Capitan was showing the live feed of red carpet coverage. From our seats we could watch the celebrity interviews that were going on just outside.
Now speaking of celebrities… doesn’t the cast look amazing? (Thank you to Marvel Entertainment for sending over this photograph).
