Guardians of the Galaxy U.K. Premiere

So tonight was the London premiere of Guardians of the Galaxy and the cast including Chris Pratt, Zoe Saldana, Vin Diesel,Karen Gillan and Dave Bautista come out to celebrate/promote.

The vibe seemed off. I can’t put my finger on exactly what it was but the stars just did not seem to get the crowd going (except Vin), but more on that in a minute. I think maybe because Chris isn’t a huge star over here yet and because Zoe looked pissed off the entire time. Sure, she smiled for the professional cameras and while onstage being interviewed but besides that, every time I looked at her, she had a sour look on her face. Perhaps it’s the whole pregnancy thing. The news broke this week and she seemed upset about it. She looked obviously with child this evening, despite deliberately wearing a floaty dress. She signed for fans quickly, done the interviews she HAD to do and then went inside. Hence why I have no pictures of her.


Pratt was great. Very charismatic and more good-looking than I ever gave him credit for. He spent a lot of time with the fans. Dave is a newbie to people who don’t know about wrestling (like me) but he was nice enough. Vin Diesel probably entertained the fans the most because he arrived on the stilts he used when filming motion capture for Groot. It was so unexpected and a great laugh. He had a lot of energy and moved on them very well. He larked about with his co-stars on the carpet too.

Karen Gillan makes her big screen Hollywood debut but she is well known, of course, for being Doctor Who’s sidekick Amy Pond. She has just landed a role in an American sitcom Selfie but she is adamant she still loves the U.K.

She said, “I’m not going to leave, I promise! I’m coming home as much as possible… I miss home so much, if I’m being totally honest.”

Great additions to the guest list were Chris Hemsworth and his wife (he was great with fans), director Joss Whedon (hobbling along with a walking stick!) and Stephen Moffat.


There’s the round-up, now here are the pics below. Enjoy:
