Yes indeed. I, Villiers, must agree that Villiers is just awful. Also, she's tacky. Can't stand tacky people who dare to joke online. Let me just say, I hope Villiers gets her act together because I, Villiers, am so over her.

Dustin I went to see The Nun at an AMC about two weeks ago and they didn't play any trailer for Bo Rhap. I was under the impression that they play the trailers up until the day before it gets released. I've certainly never seen a 6 minute clip anywhere.

I haven't worked in a theater since around 05 but typically at least for the company I worked for they were given 1 to 3 different trailers and given dates to play each one and a date to stop playing all of them all together. They usually stopped playing them about 6 weeks before the movie came out. We were either told to pack up and ship the film for the trailers back to the studios or toss them out. Some guys clipped off frames of the film and kept them. I never saw much point in it. Now I think it's all digital. Flash drives instead of actual film.

They are releasing new mini clips of it on the movie's official social media pages so if someone really did see a 6 minute trailer with new scenes it might it have just been that? I saw that there was an exhibition for the movie in Spain I think last week. Plenty of photos from the filming and their costumes all up on display. Although I think it was only for the press.

That could be it. The exhibit ran for a full weekend, I think. I saw someone mention they cast a 'little Freddie' as a young boy of 9 to 12 so some people think we're getting a flashback or something back to St. Peter's boarding school as well.

My friend told me theres going to be a red carpet event in New York too. I know the cast and the band minus John of course is going to the London premiere idk about NY. I'm wondering of John's kids will be attending. One of his kids has a YouTube channel and someone posted his trailer reaction videos a while back. He seemed really excited to see it

I haven't looked at his YouTube very closely but I did see the video of him reviewing one of the trailers. I'm not sure what his YouTube is all about though. He might be an artist or something.

BTW, Elton John, Dave Clark did not NEED invitations. I said we were the only friends INVITED. It is well documented that Peter Straker and his crowd, as well as others were not allowed in to the Garden Lodge in the last months. Freddie trusted my medical/nursing knowledge and asked me to help him with certain physical procedures that June. It was my pleasure to help make him more comfortable at this time.

Thor, dont feed them. It's what they're hoping for. The same guy who was asking you questions about Freddie's personal life last year is now calling other people obsessed and is stalking their social media pages. Ironic. The other guy is just after your reaction. Drown them out. Don't give them any attention. They'll be buying the book along with everyone else. Regardless of what they say.

John Deacon's son, Cam, does have a YouTube channel and has reviewed the trailers. He's cute because he gets so excited!

Thor you're better than they are. Brush it off. As you said the real fans know the truth. Nobody is stressing over these guys.

@Dustin I watched the review by John's son. He seems charming! He looked thrilled to see his dad on screen. I wonder if the kids of the band members watch old clips of the live shows and think the same as we do: damn that's cool lol

Katydyd5 yes I just saw the clip of him reviewing it. He's got John's lovely smile. He seems young, too. I didn't realize how many kids John had until recently. I believe his last one was born sometime in the mid 90's.

Ah! Some people have gotten to view a 30 minute screening of the film last month supposedly. I have to assume that's a sort of giant trailer then. All positive reviews from what I've seen. I hear the London premiere is sold out. Something about a Wembley show? Are they wheeling out a giant IMAX screen to put in the area or what?

Yeah screenings are usually rough cuts of scenes that they piece together to give people an idea of what the feel of the movie is. They usually still have time to edit or remove scenes if the screening review points to it. As for Wembley, I don't know. I did hear about the premier having something to do with Wembley but I have no idea how that would work screen wise. I can guess that it's like any other giant arena used for concerts and sports events. Thise places can change pretty drastically if needed for whatever. Unless it's not in wembley itself but something adjacent to it. I didn't listen that closely when it was mentioned on the radio. This isn't the same building that was there during Live Aid, right?
