Last Friday Melbourne Central hosted the Australian premiere of the highly anticipated film X-MEN: Days of Future Past at HOYTS Cinema, presented by TCL. Red carpets are always difficult to shoot — if you’re not a “paparazzi” style photographer. But I do love a challenge and it was a lot of fun.
A major star-studded red carpet event occurred to mark the film’s premiere.
The stars of the film Hugh Jackman, Fan Bingbing, Peter Dinklage walked the red carpet and greeted fans and media in the shadow of Melbourne Central’s 125 year old Coops Shot Tower.
I loved how they stopped and posed for selfies with the fans. Very cute.
The Australian event was the last of the global X-Men X-perience which had seen premieres in New York, London, Beijing and Moscow, with Singapore and Sao Paulo also premiere this week.
X-MEN: Days of Future Past
The ultimate X-Men ensemble fights a war for the survival of the species across two time periods in X-Men: Days of Future Past. The beloved characters from the original “X-Men” film trilogy join forces with their younger selves from “X-Men: First Class” in an epic battle that must change the past – to save our future.
Directed by Bryan Singer and starring Hugh Jackman, James McAvoy, Michael Fassbender, Jennifer Lawrence, Halle Berry, Ellen Page, Peter Dinklage, Fan Bingbing, Patrick Stewart and Ian McKellen,
