    The frustrating thing is no one I know here has been able to get tickets to the Premiere.
    I've tried asking numerous sources and was unable to get any information. :( 
    Not sure whether to bother heading over or not ...

    The Imagine Dragons concert is taking place in a different venue with separate ticketing... in a completely different location (just the same neighbourhood).

    I lucked out and managed to get tickets to the Imagine Dragons concert. Also took a half day off work to attend the premiere, will be attempting to get as close to anything as I can.

    I'll post pics if I get anything worthwhile!

    How did you get Imagine Dragon tickets? I couldn't find anything in English on how to get them (and I don't read Chinese so Apple Daily was useless to me).

    I'm contemplating going over to TST to see how close I can get. I'd be there with bells on if they said Peter Cullen was coming to town!

    Just can't figure out why they chose such a crazy tourist filled location for a premiere...

    So the "stars" are supposed to be walking down the red carpet at 4.30 pm HK time according to the FB page.

    How far in advance do you reckon we'd have to get there to actually SEE anything?

    Still contemplating if this is worth a trip to the dark side for...

    Just got this from Hong Kong's Milk Magazine's Facebook page - a statue of Optimus Prime stands near the Tsim Sha Tsui waterfront in preparation for tomorrow's premiere! :)

    This premiere is confusing. Is it today or tomorrow? Or do they have 2 screenings?

    It is tomorrow... in just under 23 hours...

    [​IMG]

    They have put a large Optimus up at the event on the top deck of the promenade.
    I was out there today and took several photographs which I have added to my blog. I am not sure whether I should post in here or not, but
    Optimus Prime in Tsim Sha Tsui for the Hong Kong Premiere… | Life... with Sprogs... if interested in more shots of the big guy and the preperations.

    The red carpet area is not very big so I don't think I will bother going back tomorrow unless they suddenly inform us Peter Cullen or the vehicles will be turning up.

    I posted about this in the other HK Premiere thread.

    I was there today and took a pile of pictures.

    As you can probably tell from the pics, you can't get close as Optimus is in the VIP area of the Premiere. Access to the whole thing is going to be somewhat difficult unless you are a part of it.

    I've posted more pics on my blog for those interested...

    Some of the local papers have also done a short interview with Bay and the team.
    Here's what he said, from The Standard > The Standard

    'We're very excited to be holding the world premiere in Hong Kong, where we were welcomed with great enthusiasm during production. It's the perfect location to unveil the film ahead of its worldwide opening later this month. I hope the people of Hong Kong and China will enjoy how we've showcased much of the region's unique and iconic scenery in the movie'.


    As a local, I can't be more excited than this!!!

    Aiyaaa... which mall do you know? Might have to make a trip over there next week as he looks a little more permanent than the one for the premiere.

    As a "local" (albeit gwailo) I would be more excited if he had given us an opportunity to get tickets to the premiere to watch the movie with him!
