Commander Chris Hadfield, of the Canadian Space Agency and until yesterday, Station Commander of the International Space Station only appeared on our sensors when William Shatner, MBB, publicised a live chat with a fellow canadian who works in outer space. Since then we have been obsessed with this guy. We know we are not alone, with 800,000 twitter followers and a list of celebrity fans as long a warp nacelle he is a popular astronaut.
The sky was blue, the carpet was white and London was the centre of the Universe. We have been avoiding the internet, keen not to give too much away about the film. But here is a roundup of our experience.
Wednesday 1st May:
Our first task for the away mission in a trip to Sky News HQ where we talk about our expectation about the film. Bit cringeworthy now we have seen the film. But other than the preview, we knew nothing about what to expect. You can find the interview on the Sky News App, downloadable from iTunes
After a night filled with dreams of explosions, miniskirts and lens flares we arrive back in London this morning for the Press Conference. You couldn’t pick a better location, set against the backdrop of London, the very scene used in the movies posters (in our minds we see 23rd Century architecture too).
Today is the the world premiere of Star Trek Into Darkness in London and to celebrate that and its release on 9 May, we have teamed up with Paramount Pictures to bring you a fabulous set of Limited Edition free goodies.
Simply visit the promotional link and choose your gifts whilst stocks last. All the gifts are free – all you pay is the postage and packing fee to ship the items. But be quick, this offer is advertised in national papers this weekend (they have slightly more readers than our blog!)
