Subject:OH HAPPY DAY!!!
Time:04:48 pm
Current Mood:ecstaticecstatic
MCM Expo is delighted to announce that Universal Pictures will host a panel Saturday the 24th October at the London MCM Expo featuring previews for upcoming features including The Vampires Assistant, The Green Zone and 9. The panel will include special guest Elijah Wood who stars in Universal's fantasy epic '9', an action-packed adventure, directed by Shane Acker, the animated fantasy epic 9 is the feature-length expansion of his Academy Award-nominated 2004 short film of the same name.

I can hardly believe it. I was really beginning to think I'd never see him again - that my last real-life glimpse would be of him being whisked off in a maroon car on the Oxford Murders set. Of course, when I read this latest news I immediately started thinking 'What if he cancels - what if I can't get there because of something in RL, what if, what if.... but then I thought, 'Stop that!! Enjoy this while you can. So, for now, I am wallowing in the wonderful knowledge that Elijah is coming to London on 24th Oct and I am going to see him again. Oh happy, happy day:)

Oh, isn't it just wonderful!!! I had a feeling that you'd get there if you could.

Carol and i are going, and our early tickets are booked. Just have to sort out accomodation and travel.. mere details compared to getting the ticket!

That was my first thought too.. what if he cancels.. But this is for the film, it's not a personal choice, so the chances are he'll be there. They have a steampunk exhibition lined up, and even a steampunk band to play in the evening.. so yes, i'm going to wallow too.. :)))))))) Happy Days xxx

Right - I've booked our early tickets (yes, hubby will be in tow as usual!!).

and even a steampunk band to play in the evening

This is at the party at the Novotel on the night? Have you booked for this yet? Can't help but feel a certain person could be there!! So, that means I'll have to book the hotel for two nights. Do you know which hotel you're staying at yet?

"This is at the party at the Novotel on the night? "

What!!.. i didn't realise the group was playing at a party, i thought they would be playing at the convention centre.. Can anyone get in, or do you have to be a guest? Just checked the prices, and it's way beyond my means... :(

The tickets, which can be bought on the site, are only £6 each. Are you looking at the prices for actually staying at the Novotel? Only, I don't think you have to stay there to be able to go.

This is the link:

I'd love to be able to stay at the Novotel but I think it's beyond us too. If it had just been for one night perhaps.

Are you booked yet? We're staying at the Custom House Hotel, which is just across the road from the Expo, and is very reasonable. (It could be a complete dive, but who cares ..lol) We've also booked tickets for the party, and the travel is sorted, so it's all systems go.. yay!!! I'm SO excited you wouldn't believe.. or maybe you would :D

When I first read your comment we still weren't booked - I was still thinking about the Novotel because it's where the party will be, it's close to the centre and I feel sure E will be staying there!! But I knew we just couldn't afford it so I looked at the Custom House and you're right - far more reasonable, close and it looks nice from what I've seen. So I've booked!!

>>I'm SO excited you wouldn't believe.. or maybe you would :D<<

Oh yes ... I would!! :D

That was my thought too, that E would be staying at the Novotel.. but then i thought that as he's a guest of Universal Pictures, then it's quite possible that he'd be booked into one of the bigger hotels in the city. It was really tempting though, especially as i'm sharing with Carol, so it would be half the price.. and i know i'll be kicking myself if it does turn out to be his hotel.. but the Custom Hotel is so much cheaper, and still local. So we'll be in the same hotel.. yay!!! Much better to enjoy the squee!! hee!

btw.. just had a thought.. do you know what Pam's itinery is. Will she be with him i wonder. I'd love to have the chance to see/meet her.

Ah well - even if he does stay at the Novotel it doesn't mean we'd get to see him, I suppose. And of course, we don't know if he'll go to the party - but I do think the steampunk thing sounds like something that would interest him, so fingers crossed!

I'm not sure about Pam's itinerary but she does seem to be with him a lot lately so it seems quite possible she could come:)

Hehe. Unless something serious happens, he'll be there. He's doing movie promotion, so you know he will be there. I'm happy you'll get to see him, again!

Thanks Patrick. Yes, I'll take many pics if I can. I'm not the best of photographers, I'm afraid - but I've actually just ordered a new camera so perhaps I'll do a bit better with this one:)

Many thanks - I can still hardly believe it!! Oh, and the accommodation is sorted now - I think Belle is sharing with her friend but we've found a much more reasonable (price-wise) hotel which is still close to the Expo:)

Oh, that's great news, Pauline! You must be thrilled to bits at the prospect of seeing Elijah in the flesh again ~ and so soon!

I hope you and your hubby (bless him!) have a great time ~ the same goes for Bellewood and her friend Carol too. I'll look forward to reading all about it after the event.

~ Blossom.

Many thanks Blossom - can't believe I'll be seeing him again (all being well)! This is actually the longest I've gone without seeing him since the first time in Oct 03 - it's 2yrs 8mths since Oxford Murders - I was getting serious withdrawal symptoms:D

Oh, Paulie - I'm so thrilled and excited for you!! I'll be living vicariously through you so I hope you'll share all your excitement and details and SQUEEEEEEEE with us!!

As someone who has YET to meet him - looks like maybe I should move to the UK to get the chance!!

Yes, it seems unless you live in SoCal or NY then your best chance of seeing him is if you live in the UK!! It's times like this I'm happy we're such a tiny island:)

I've decided against going - it's a busy time for us and difficult to get someone to look after the kids. And now that I saw him twice in New York and was so close to him, I'm not too sad about that decision - although I would have loved to meet you and the other LJers who are going. Oh well. Next time!
