Post by: deenan on July 13, 2005, 09:29:44 am

...the organisers have arranged one of the strongest line-ups in recent years, with more British and international premieres, the hottest British talent, some unique screenings and appearances by stars such as Elijah Wood, Jason Biggs and cinema legend Paul Schrader.

and what's with this remark?

• Green Street - Elijah Wood, right, is drawn into the world of football hooligans when his brother-in-law introduces him to members of West Ham firm the Green Street Elite.

i guess they haven't heard about how powerful elijah and this movie really is.

Deenan, I think the article was meant to have a picture of Elijah on the right side of the text. There wasn't one though......strange. ::)

Yes, he will definitely be a busy boy the end of August!! I guess this rules out the premiere of Green Street Hooligans in the UK on August 22...or does it?

Wow, cool :o 8)
Our little guy is pretty busy in August.
Lucky people in Scotland, Edinburgh :D ;D :-*


I would go crazy if I had to pack and pack my things again and again for so much traveling. I am horrified already about packing for my two week vacation which is finally coming at the end of this month. ::)

Hey, Scotland isn't that far away from me ;D At least, not compared to the US ;D

When is he going to be there? Edinburgh is said to be a beautiful city 8)

Title: Re:Elijah at the Edinburgh Film Fesitval
Post by: Galadriel OLC on July 14, 2005, 03:05:51 am

Elijah Wood will be promoting his latest movie Green Street, about English football hooligans, and American Pie star Jason Biggs is expected in the Capital to promote his film Guy X.

Mr Danielsen said: "We have a huge selection of British films covering all genres and it really is an unbelievably strong line-up.

"Edinburgh has certainly become the showcase for the best in British cinema."

Bookings for the festival, which runs from August 17 to August 28, can be made from Friday.


So he must be there some day between the 17th - 28th of August. A very tight schedule, because I think he will be at the premiere of Hooligans in UK on the 22th of August and then go to Toronto and Orlando too.

But he is young he can do it ;D

Title: Re:Elijah at the Edinburgh Film Fesitval
Post by: Sabine on July 14, 2005, 03:50:39 am

"Green Street" will be shown August, 23. and 24. in Edinburgh. The festival takes place in Edinburgh and in Glasgow. Billys "On a clear day" will premiere in Glasgow and then on the 22th in Edinburgh.

For Elijah it would be no problem to attend at the London premiere August, 22 and then go to Edinburgh the next day.

I am seriously thinking of flying to Edinburgh,,, the tickets for the movies are available tomorrow...I do not know what will happen with "Green Street" in Germany (I fear that will only see it on DVD) so that would be chance to see Elijah and the film ..And on that festivals the athmospere is very relaxed and the people in Edinburgh are also very relaxed and friendly... :D

That goes for me as well! (I live in Norway) I attended the festival a couple of years ago, and got to see Billy Boyd doing his play. It was fantastic, that goes for Billy ;), the city, the festival, the atmosphere...the whole thing. I truly recommend it.

I too am happy for those of you who are getting the opportunity to possibly get a peek at our dear sweet Elijah!! Make sure to take tons of pictures, especially if you are in them with either Elijah or Billy!! I'm counting on Deenan to get Elijah to come to Ohio and then I can only hope that it's on a day that I don't have to work!! Oh the heartache of being a middle class worker!!! Ya know if it's meant to be, I will meet that gorgeous lad someday!! :D

There has been some question as to whether or not Elijah will be attending this festival because of GSH. According to this article from The Scotsman, he will.

Post by: Sabine on July 18, 2005, 05:18:56 pm

Ah, Yeux you also found that article... ;)
The only thing that makes me wonder is that the only movie that is sold out so far is "Serenity" which I have never heard of before. First I thought the crashdown of their side was because the rumours that Elijah will attend but GSH isn´t sold out until today... :-\

Interesting article about regulations at the festival. Not really about Elijah, but may be of interest nevertheless, especially to any are planning to attend.

Thats an interesting article...

GSH has been shown on some festivals and we have seen caps from a trailer so I do not believe (hope) that they will be so strict with this movie. I will try to smuggle in some cameras, mobiles etc...

And besides I am hoping for some other ehm themes... (thin and with dark hair.... 8))...

Post by: magicdancer on August 04, 2005, 11:50:18 am

I receive alerts about Chralie Hunnam news and this was in the latest. It looks as though Elijah is definitely going to be there. See the next to last paragraph.


Rattle And Hunnam

It's an away game in Edinburgh for Green Street
03 August 2005

We caught up for a few words with Charlie Hunnam recently. Which was nice. Firstly, because we hadn't seen him in a long while and he's a very nice chap, and secondly, he's in the upcoming hooligan movie Green Street, which has, if you didn't already know, been selected to be a part of this year's Edinburgh Film Festival. "I'm thrilled," said Hunnam. "I've never been to this festival before. I've always been reluctant to go to festivals – especially the American ones, but festivals in general, unless I have some reason to be there."

The youthful Geordie has been living in L.A. for the last 18 or so
months in self-imposed exile from performing while he re-assessed his career. "When I went to play Nicholas Nickleby, although I was very grateful to get the opportunity, I didn't feel like I was putting my best foot forward." Which is unusual, given that he's a good looking lad, and could easily be out there, cleaning up in rom-coms left, right and centre. But that's obviously not what he wants – as his
character in Green Street amply demonstrates.

As Pete Dunham, the young general of The Green Street Crew, he's not exactly pretty, certainly isn't glamorous, and isn't even immediately appealing. What he is, though, is charismatic, and a great character for a sharp acting mind like Hunnam's (check him out in the movie, trust us) to tackle. The same goes for the film's subject matter as a whole, which didn't phase him - au contraire: "I thought think ultimately the message is as responsible as it could have been dealing with that subject matter. [Football related violence] is a reality - it's a very real part of English culture, and therefore why shouldn't we make a film about it? There is the worry that it glamorises or glorifies violence, and obviously that's an irresponsible thing to do, but I think that ultimately the message of the film is a responsible one." And it's this that is sure to cause debate about the film wherever it's screened – Edinburgh or otherwise.

[color=Blue]Which brought us back to the Festival. "It's very exciting - I'm
really looking forward to going up there, and having as bit of a look
around. Elijah and I are going, and I think (Green Street's director) Lexi Alexander is going to be there, and I know Leo Gregory will be there – he actually has two films there this year."

Fans of Charlie, Elijah, Leo, Lexi, or West Ham can see the film's
British Gala screening on August 23rd and there's another showing on the following evening. [/color]

Here are the times prices and the place where Green Street Hooligans will be shown:

TUE 23 AUG 19:30 Cineworld
   
WED 24 AUG 20:30 Cineworld

1 standard ticket @ £7.45 GBP
1 concession tickets @ £5.20 GBP[/quote]

Just curious. What's the difference between a "standard" ticket and a "concession" ticket? We don't have that in the US.

well it says:

* The concession rate is available to disabled people, senior citizens, students, the unemployed, equity members, children under 16 and 16-18 year olds in full time education with proof of status. Please ensure that you bring your concession IDs to the cinema with you.


hope that helps

Were you successful to convince your mom?? Perhaps if you tell her its the only birthday present you want... ;)

OK, I understand now. We have that in the US, too, but don't call it a concession rate. Jenny, I'm so upset that you're having difficulties convincing your mum about seeing GS. I feel like writing her a letter to plead on your behalf. :-\

Lexi A. made a statement on the official GSH side that ELijah will be there!

http://www.hooligansthefilm.com/

Look at "News from Lexi"! ;)

Jenny, perhaps your mom can take a friend to Edinburgh and while you are going to watch GSH they can have a drink or something and after that they pick you up at the cinema.... :D

thats a good idea I'll have to try that and I'll say I'll take someone (anyone with me) so I'm not at the cinema alone.

thanks yeux I think I'll have to convince her soon before it is sold out.

[color=Blue]It would be lovely to see you there. I don't know when or if I hear from them. I am keeping my fingers firmly crossed. At the moment, there's no other way I could afford to go. We have so many expenses at the moment because we just moved, it just wouldn't be right to spend the money on flights and hotel, just because I want to meet/see Elijah. This competition is my only chance to attend the Festival.

Today, I received an email with the heading Congratulations and my heart nearly stopped but when I opened it, it was only Spam!! :(

Really? Oh, that's not good. I thought one of them was sold out already? I hope many more people will buy tickets.[/color]

Hello all, just wanted to say hi as Ive just joined! Im a huge Elijah fan, have loved him since i saw the Faculty.

Im going to Edinburgh to hopefully see Elijah next week, and maybe some of you guys too ;)

Anywayz, glad to be here..

Jo.

Post by: Caz on August 15, 2005, 03:00:26 pm

[color=Blue]Hi Jo, welcome to the Forum!! I hope you'll have fun posting here. :)
There's a newbie section here where you can find lots more people to say Hi to. ;)

This is for anyone going to the Festival:[/color]

THE HALLION

What is it?

£1 million five-storey Georgian mansion private members' club on Picardy Place. Excellent contemporary restaurant and circular white first-floor bar which attracts Edinburgh's crème de la crème. Old-fashioned service in contemporary style. Think Groucho meets the New Club. Also has a 3am licence every night of the festival, with DJs playing in its outdoor courtyard.

Who might you bump into?

Director Steven Berkoff is due to stay here and comedians Alan Davies and Bill Bailey have already been spotted drinking in its stylish bar. Actors such as Rupert Graves, Tilda Swinton, Miranda Richardson and director Danny Boyle have signed up to its festival membership scheme. Richard E Grant is rumoured to be throwing a party here when he comes to the Film Festival. Elijah Wood (Frodo in Lord of the Rings), film director Anthony Minghella and Julie Walters are also expected.

Why go there?

A-list star spotting. Last year The Hallion was undoubtedly the venue to be seen at. Christian Slater stayed during his run in One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest and drank the bar dry of tequila. He hosted his birthday party here too, hiring a karaoke machine - and could be heard belting out Frank Sinatra tunes into the small hours. Co-star Mackenzie Crook was found asleep under a table. The cocktails are fabulous, too.

How do I get in?

"We welcome anyone from out of town, whether they're performers and producers," says Glyn Partridge, one of the club's co-founders. "People can come if they know a member, or better still if they know me."

In other words: charm Glyn Partridge.

Do say: "I love the Far East - I think it is a fascinating corner of the globe."

Don't say: "I really had better go home, I don't want a hangover."

Hello Jo, welcome to the forum! I also will be there next week, so we will probably meet! (You can tell me you are the one with that "white rose in your hair" ;D)

Carina, yes that sounds good. But I do not belong to the "Créme de la créme" of Edinburgh, so I doubt that they will let me in... 8)

Have you heard from your competition??

By the way, finally GSH is sold out for both screenings.....

Ive had it confirmed for me by someone in the know that there def will be a q & a after the movie with the cast and crew, and also an intro before it starts. Cant wait! Will you guys also be haning around all day to meet Elijah before he goes into the screening? We will be.. It would be great if we can go up and chat to the stars and crew of the movie after the q & A, ive asked my contact, ill let you know what she says.

Do you have any idea where Lij may stay whilst in Edinburgh?

Jo.

Ein Q&A, das ist ja toll, ich wuerde luegen wenn ich sage es macht mir nichts aus, aber ich kann es ja leider nicht aendern. :'(

Translation: Thank you Sabine :) but I don't think I will win. That's a real shame. :'(

A Q&A, that's really great, I would be lying if I said it doesn't bother me that I couldn't go but sadly, there's nothing I can do. :'(

But I'm really happy for you (and everyone who can go), you can tell us all about it afterwards and show us the pics. ;)

Hi Jo, welcome to the Forum. :)

I wanted to go to the Festival but I won't be able to now because we just moved to Germany and into a new apartment. My mum hasn't got a job over here yet since we only just came here and I am starting University in October. We're basically starting from scratch and we have a lot of expenses which is why I can't afford such a trip at the moment but of course I'm really happy for everyone who can go! :)[/color]

Hi all!

I read on a site:

firstmovies.com that there is going to be a LONDON Premiere on the 24th August. Does anybody know if this is true, becasue what I'm not getting is this: The Edinburgh Festival is meant to be the UK Premiere, so why is there going to be one in London also? Also does this mean Elijah isn't going to the Edinburgh one? I'm going and I need to know if he is attending Edinburgh 100% sure. Please can ANYBODY ask someone who will know whetehr Elijah is still attending the Edinburgh one next week? I really, realy need to know!

Thanks in advance!!

Post by: Caz on August 17, 2005, 04:23:54 pm

[color=Blue]Yes, it's true, there will be a London Premiere as well as an Edinburgh Premiere!

Elijah should be in Edinburgh on the 23rd and in London on the 24th. This seems to me like a very sudden decision because we hadn't heard anything about this before. I also posted about this in the Hooligans Thread in the Other Media Section. :)[/color]

Post by: GingerBeard on August 17, 2005, 04:31:49 pm

Thanks Carina, I'm a bit surprised by it to be honest, espaecially as the venue is The Apollo and not Odeon.
He had BETTER go to the Edinburgh one as it has cost me a fortune and I will be travelling for hours and hours.
I think he will go though as it is a big thing for GREEN STREET and for Lexi, they need the publicity etc.

Post by: Sabine on August 17, 2005, 04:46:33 pm

Ginger, Lexi has confirmed in a post on the official GSH side that ELijah will be in Edinburgh - I am not sure about London.

Carina, thanks for your nice wishes, I hope I will be able to get pictures etc. but someone over at the LJ has asked and it seems that they will take all cameras during the movie... :-\ but there will be definitly a q/a after the screening and perhaps the chance to get some autographs.

This is my first time attending at such an event and I am going like a virgin - I am curious and I want to have fun - thats all. And I want to see Lijah in person - how he looks in reality and whether he has this charisma everyone is talking about.. :D

I've been told by my very nice and in the know source that there is going to be a london screening for competition winners that Lij, Lexi and other members of the cast will be attending. Thats at the Apollo on 24th Aug. I emailed my mate and she confirmed this was happening but said it would not affect Edinburgh. She also told me we should be able to get autographs outside before the screening at edinburgh and then go inside to see the movie and q & a.

Our cameras will be taken away during the movie but will be given back to us before the q & a. Im going to Edinburgh and London screenings to see Lij! I can't wait! All of us who are going have got to meet up too!

So dont worry people, Lij is going to Edinburgh and London!!

Here are some fun places to check out while you're in Edinburgh at the festival, Sabine. Even if you don't get tp any of them, it's interesting reading. Tells which are the celebrity hangouts.....and Elijah likes to "hang out" with his mates. Billy will be there, so maybe they'll pop into one of these pubs. Wouldn't that be a nice surprise!

(EDIT)

BUT... Isn't he supposed to be in London on August 24th, the day of the London Premiere and in Edinburgh on August 23rd? Then why is he in London on the 23rd, unless he is going to travel to Edinburgh afterwards or have I got my facts completely mixed up now? :-\

This is exactly what I was thinking. He'll probably tape the show in the morning or early afternoon, then fly to Edinburgh for the evening.

Yeux, thanks for the Scotsman article - Elijah is mentioned in connection with one of the pubs - but it is only for members and I don´t think I will hang around there in front of the door... ;D

Jo, I do not know what I am wearing - depends on the weather, but I am sure I will see you with the LOTR shirt....We will try to be there very early....

[color=Blue]Sorry to give everyone a fright, didn't mean to do that. :-X

Well, the show is live but since it doesn't take long to travel to Edinburgh, I think he will do just that.

Thanks Yeux for the article!

Why do they always have to call him "Frodo"?? He is ELIJAH!!

I am hoping, that everyone will like that movie not only the Lijah fans there... :D

And Yeux, I am sure you will get your chance one day....

Little Snow, I would like to know what the real Green street members, who are in this movie as extras, were thinking about that "Hollywood guy"...and if they accepted him as "one of them"... 8)

Sabine, I feel the same way, I wish people would refer to him as simply Elijah. Don't get me wrong, I love Frodo and LOTR but I think it's time.[/color]

Don't ask me where I read it, but I saw somewhere that they did, more or less. Maybe not as "one of them," but I recall they decided he was "an OK bloke," or something like that.

Is there anyone who ever worked with Elijah who doesn't think he's an OK bloke.....and then some?

;D I don't think I'll speak at the Q&A, my english is pathetic.. ^^
but if I could speak with him, I'd like to ask him if he's gonna come to the Venice festival next month, loads of italian fans are waiting for him here ;) then I'd ask about his future projects (I can't wait for a new role!!), about his record label (is it really simian records?) and.. I want even know if he can play giutar or piano or what, I read too many different opinions about that, lol ;D

anyway, I don't think I'll have the possibility to speak with him, and even if I will, I'm sure I'll forget everything.. I had loads of questions last year when I met him in Prague, and just couldn't speak.. he took my breath away! ;D lol ;D
I'm leaving tomorrow morning.. see you girls!!!
--> the italian one is me, if you're there<-- (llol 8))

Hello Yeux! Yeah, it's very interesting that we get so many bits and pieces of what's in store for us in the coming months through these different articles and interviews.

I've never heard of "Novel with Cocaine" before. Sounds pretty deep and angsty.

Elijah in Scotland for controversial film

ROSIE MCINTOSH August 24 2005

ELIJAH Wood, aka Frodo Baggins, arrived in Scotland yesterday for the premiere of his controversial new film.
In a role far removed from his sensitive Hobbit hero in the Lord of the Rings, the 24-year-old US actor plays a soccer thug in Green Street, which is being screened this evening at the Edinburgh International Film Festival.
In his latest production, Wood's character Matt is sucked into the violent world of football hooliganism while on a trip to east London.
The star said he was drawn to the role by the nature of the script in which Matt turns from a Harvard student into a hooligan. "I didn't know about the violence associated with the game and that's what interested me most about the film." he said. "I've been to quite a few football games in the States but nothing compares to the energy of a football match."
He continued: "We went to the pubs beforehand as part of the ritualistic thing of preparing. The fighting fascinated me – I hadn't understood what that was about."
Described as "viciously tough", the film aims to shed a sympathetic light on the subject and is the directorial debut of German Lexi Alexander, the former kickboxing champion.
Wood said his fans had reacted positively to his new role, adding: "After the Lord of the Rings was over and done with, the last thing I wanted to do was be part of something massive – it was amazing but exhausting. I'm now passionate about smaller roles and am interested in doing a variety of different things."
Tonight's screening at Cineworld Edinburgh, Fountain Park, will also be attended by Charlie Hunnam, Leo Gregory and Marc Warren, who all star in the film, which is on general release from September 9.

Woohoo! Lucy has posted several delicious photos!!! :D

[color=Blue]The first two reports are here!! :D

1)[/color]

I've only got a very short amount of time here, and I messed up my driver and can't get any of my photos onto my jump drive to post. But be assurred, I took several hundred - at least half of them are rubbish, but I think there will be enough to please people.

I can't even begin to describe yesterday. I want to start out by thanking the people who did so much to help me get here and get around - Amy and Chris and Bine and Trish and Patsie and Sal and Becca and Lorna - I can't even begin to name them all. But at any rate, we gathered outside the cinema at noon - the three girls who had flown in that morning had gone straight there with their luggage and had arrived at 9, and so were waiting for us. They remained camped outside the doors while the rest of us took turns going into Pizza Hut for lunch. For the longest time, no-one could tell us for sure what the set up would be, and we heard all kinds of conflicting stories - including one thaT Sir Ian was arriving for his premiere at the same time as Elijah, which of course made me squee (and turned out to be totally untrue, as Ian was not coming at all). At any rate, eventually they put out the red carpet and the barricades and informed all of us (a good 30 strong by then) that we had to go all the way across the street. We went, very reluctantly, except for a few well-dressed Italian girls who took up a spot at the far end of the red carpet from the end where they would exit their cars. We thought about joining them - in fact, I was there with them for the first 15 minutes or so, but then decided to join the rest of my group across the street. After quite a bit of grumbling on our part, security did allow as they generally permitted a few people next to the barricades - and we all went back, the 3 earliest arriving girls being allowed to choose their spot first.

I'll skip way ahead here because I have 9 minutes of time left... I had said that if Lexi arrived first and not with the actors, we'd have our best shot - and bless her, that's exactly what happened. She looked gorgeous all in black and waved and smiled and started to walk away, and I yelled her name. She walked over, I handed her the photos I had for her and reminded her of when we'd met. At that point, she remembered my being one of her 3 stalwarts from Tribeca and got all excited and was talking to all of us. She pulled someone else over who turned out to be Gigi Pritzker, producer of the movie and head of Odd Lot, who had heard my name through the Chicago office. We talked for a few minutes and she was really lovely, thanking all of us for working so hard for the movie. And she and Lexi proceeded, as the others arrived, in making sure one of them grabbed the guys and got them specifically to us! Nothing like having Charlie led up to you by the hand... At one point, Gigi even asked how we were doing, and if we were getting everything we needed, and I honestly wanted to cry. She was truly lovely.

Trish and I, at least, did get everyone's autograph (although I forgot to give Elijah the album I had for him and had to catch him later on on the day) and I actually had Charlie to myself for several minutes as he was working his way down the line behind Elijah, who had slowed down and so Charlie had to wait. NO complaints here as he was absolutely lovely - both physically and in every other way, since he seemed to be in tremendous spirits, laughing and smiling, and was just as nice as he could possibly be. Leo was much quieter but also very nice, and Elijah was his usual wonderful self.

Can't say too much more except that Lexi referred to us again from the stage when she introduced the movie (thanks to 3 of the girls, including I think Anna, Anda and Christine, we had wonderful seats right in front), Elijah leaned down on his way out to tell us to enjoy the film, and we all got a photo with Lexi after the Q&A. Honestly, I couldn't have asked for things to go any better than they did.

But my time is up now - if I have a chance tomorrow at either of my airports, I'll see if I can post some photos, but must run now!

2) Extract (no spoilers):[/color]

The film. I don't want to spoil it for those (hopefully all) of you who are reading this, but the film was fantastic. I was worried when I heard Elijah Wood was making a film about football hooliganism. Even the fact that he wasn't pretending to be British didn't reassure me. But this film was wonderful. It showed how these men aren't just yobs who spend their whole time fighting. They are real people. Some with loving families, with jobs, perfectly normal guys who just change completely on Match day when they get a few drinks down them. The violence was very skillfully done - you saw the brutality of the fights, but it wasn't in your face. There was only a couple of scenes when I was like 'ew ew ew ew ew *hides*'. And I cried. Big wuss that I am. But....yeah. There's not really much I can say, but Charlie, Leo, and Elijah were all fantastic in it. Well, apart from Charlie's accent. Which we shall not comment on.

Just had a brilliant couple of days guys! Oh, hi to eandme and Sabine, great to meet you too. Anna, Im sorry i didnt see/speak to you!

Edinburgh was awesome! I met all the cast and Lexi and Elijah was so sweet to me. ;D I gave him the Westham shirt (I had Baggins 1 printed on the back) and when he saw it his eyes went so wide and he said to me "Wow, thats so cool! Thank you!" I went a bit quiet then and forgot to ask for my autograph! ::) Silly me! But Lij noticed my Frodo pic and said "Do you want me to sign that for you?" I was like "yes please"! He signed and then gave me a hug! I was so made up!

The movie was excellent.. really violent and brutal but very well made and acted, I cant wait to see it again. The Q & A was interesting, tho' I'd have liked Lij to have said more! As he was leaving I shot after him and said to him that i loved the film and he thanked me and then was gone. Me and my friend Beth went outside and met and got a pic with Charlie, then Elijah came out, waved and got in his car. All in all, a brilliant day! I also got to meet Joss Whedon, which I was so excited about as I love Buffy and Angel!

I'll put some pics up later and i also have an even better story to tell from London last night - Ive got to do some work now though so ill post that tonight!

Jo.

Post by: Sabine on August 25, 2005, 11:20:12 am

So finally I am back from some wonderful days...As Jo told you, everything was so overwhelming. Jo, greetings, hope you had a great time in London!

The athmosphere was very relaxed and we all had a very good place at the redcarpet and when Lexi arrived, she reckognized some of the ladies and brought the boys (Charlie and Leo) directly to us. So I let them sign my EII book. (Lucky me, that they didn`t realise what they were signing :o)
There were only about 150 people and nobody was pushing or reacted in a strange way
You have already seen tons of pictures, so only a few of mine:
My camera is like sh***, so they are not so good:

The red carpet "Before Elijah"

[IMG]http://i3.photobucket.com/albums/y97/sabine50/IM000241.jpg[/IMG]

When Lijah arrived, he went straightly to the other side of the small street to the fans, that was so nice of him

[IMG]http://i3.photobucket.com/albums/y97/sabine50/IM000243.jpg[/IMG]

Then he came to us:

[IMG]http://i3.photobucket.com/albums/y97/sabine50/IM000246.jpg[/IMG]

[IMG]http://i3.photobucket.com/albums/y97/sabine50/IM000248.jpg[/IMG]

[IMG]http://i3.photobucket.com/albums/y97/sabine50/IM000249.jpg[/IMG]

He said "Hello" and I gave him the book to sign. He said "Oh you bought the hard copy, thats great" ...

The first thing I realised, that he is so thin! He is a bitt taller than me, but so very, very small..like a child.

And he wore those "old, ugly" shoes we all know from different events... ;D

After that they did the "official" shootings - you have all seen the pics - and we ran to get our places in the cinema.

The movie was very good and I cried at the end. Some extremly violent scenes, and an overusing of the word "f******, but I could understand Matts feelings and why it was so easy for him to fall into that "firm" and that charismatic guy. Some people were not happy with Charlies accent, but I cannot say anything about that, because I am no native speaker.

When Lexi introduced the actors, Lijah jumped down the staircase (I only tracked some air, it was on side where had my seat) and ran to her, hugged her like mad and told us: "It is her birthday. lets sing"! So we all had to sing... :D

Afterwards mainly questions about the violence. Elijah: "America has no violence. We only have weapons." Lexi: "For the people it does not look so brutal when you shoot someone, than using your fist."

Elijah is NOT into sports or a special team.

Lexi got a phone call of Lijahs agent that he interested in doing that movie - she was overwhelmed.

I made some pictures of inside, but they are on my other camera, I hope they will be good, the light was very bad.

Elijah is such a nice person and he makes it so easy for you to talk to him.

I am so happy that I decided to go, it was a great time and we all had much fun.

OK, Here's my London story but first my photo ;D

[IMG]http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v236/Jomel10/GreenStreet010.jpg[/IMG]

I may go on a bit here but thats how excited i am!

Our flight from Edinburgh was delayed by an hour so we were all getting pretty stressed as we knew the Apollo would be getting quite busy. We arrived at about 3pm (soooo late for a prem!!) and I saw Lisa up the front. I ran up to her and gave her a big hug and then realised she had saved me a spot next to her, on the front row. I love my big sister!! She couldnt save a spot for Janine or Beth though she had tried but they really understood and were great about it. I felt bad as i normally go mad at people who jump to the front at prems but at the same time I felt I had to make the most of the opportunity as who knows when Lij would be back??

It was the most stupidist set up for a prem any of us had ever seen. They had one rope for a barrier, no gates or anything. We knew we would be in trouble when Elijah arrived. At around 6.45pm, stars of the movie began to arrive. Beth was stood behind Lisa by this point and Janine was stood on a ledge nearby, ready to take photos. I got all the stars again except Charlie but i got him the day before so im not too bothered! The crush when the others were arriving was awful, we were getting really worried. Then, we suddenly saw Elijah had arrived, come in through a side door and was having his photo taken inside! We all started screaming for him so his PR person came out and said if we calmed down, they would bring him out to us but we had to be quiet and keep calm while he was doing press. We all shut up immediatly!! Trouble was, after he had done press, he vanished down some stairs! We were a bit worried about this so security came out and told us they were trying to sort something out for those of us who had waited the longest!!! This is when i realised how lucky i was and how grateful i am to Lisa!! Finally, 3 guys came out and told us they would be taking us into the cinema's foyet to meet Elijah! They would take ten in at a time and we could get one thing signed and one pic!! OMG! I was first in line and my heart skipped a beat AGAIN when i saw him walking towards me! I moved towards him and just gave him such a big hug and he gave me a bear hug back! Then we said hi and i told him i had been in Edinburgh yesterday and had given him the Westham shirt and he said "Yeah, thats right, I remember!!" Yay! I then got my item signed, which is a really nice mounted pic of all 4 hobbits that Billy Boyd had already signed and he had put "Pippin" underneath his autograph so I asked Elijah if he could write "Frodo" and he said "Sure I can!" I then asked for a pic and he said "no problem" and put his arm round me and held me close and Lisa took the photo. Then, that was it! I said bye and moved away. Lisa was then calling me back as id taken the silver pen she needed to get her pic signed!! I also remembered i had a letter for Lij that i had forgotton to give to him in Edinburgh and had nearly forgotton to give it to him again. So i quickly ran back up to him and said "Elijah, Im sorry, I forgot to give this to you!" He said, "Oh, OK, thanks very much!" and took it from me. I hope he reads it. Lisa gave me her camera to take her pic with Elijah but i was being literally pulled away so i had to hand it back and then got pushed out!! LOL! There were two French people outside who saw me being bundled out and they had the weirdest looks on their faces! Too funny! Esp as i then started screaming! Lisa then came rushing out too and gave me the biggest hug! She'd had a great meeting too, giving him a card she had made for him, saying "Thanks for the memories Elijah" and had lots of pics of Frodo on it. Too cute! Then beth came out too, she hadnt got a pic but had had a nice meeting. We then walked back round to the front of the cinema and saw Janine, who hadnt been able to get in which i still feel really sad about :(

So, a brilliant couple days! I dont know how long it will be til I come down off of this cloud! ;)

[color=Blue]Wonderful! Thanks sooooooo much for the reports guys, I'm so glad you had such a great time!! :D
*sigh* I wish I'd been there too.

Today was a bad day for me but reading your reports and seeing all the pics over the last few days made up for it. :D

Sabine, how come Lexi recognised Lilith straight away? I don't remember reading anything about why this is. Or maybe I forgot because I have a lot on my mind. ;D

Did she meet her at a premiere in America perhaps?? I read in several reports that Lexi came over straight away because she recognised several people or was it because of the shirts?



This is really helpful too:

Here are the awards from the Edinburgh Film Festival. Unfortunately, Green Street wasn't among the winners. However, this isn't too surprising since this festival was in the UK.

Thanks for the links Yeux, I have seen that before and as much as I am disappointed that GSH was not even mentioned,
I am happy, that "Tsotsi" won over "Serenity". That means, independant movies have a good chance to be successful and to be liked by a greater audience.
