LAST Friday proved to be one to remember for the crowds who attended the premiere of the long-awaited 10th installment in the Fast and Furious franchise, Fast X film at Bulawayo’s Ster-Kinekor (SK).
Despite having different views about the movie, the people, however, had one thing in common, they all loved the red carpet affair which took place prior to the movie. The red-carpet event was headlined by hip-hop superstar, Asaph.
Asaph was impressed with what he saw in the evening, from the movie to the ambiance at SK, which was great.
“The movie was fun, it was exciting just seeing everyone who showed up. It was a good atmosphere, good energy. Watching the movie, I loved the balance between action and humour and that cliffhanger, I just can’t wait to see what’s going to happen next, I had fun.
“I love seeing Bulawayo happy like this,” said Asaph.
The hip-hop superstar was not the only one impressed with the way things were organised by the movie exhibitors. Amanda Fin who came with her colleagues was impressed with the way things were organised at SK.
“We got here and they were playing really nice music. Asaph was hosting us and he did a really good job,” she said.
In the movie, she was impressed by Dante Reyes (Jason Momoa) who she said at first, she was indifferent towards because he was the villain of the movie.
“But as the movie went on I grew to like him, and I just really enjoyed his character but I think the movie had a terrible ending,” she said.
Despite having different opinions about the movie, one thing could be agreed on, that SK management, who had promised a time to remember prior to the premier, delivered on their promise.
Those who missed out on a great premiere which was graced by one of the city’s finest will have a chance to once again witness, both great performances building up to the movie and the great SK experience when they premiere Disney’s latest fairytale, The Little Mermaid, which will be on screens today.
This time around, the Idolatry hit maker, Asaph, who will be the red carpet’s host will be joined by songstress Bhekiwe, who will give a performance before the movie airs as SK serves yet another memorable start to the weekend.
Tickets for The Little Mermaid are on sale and pegged at US$6– @brandon_malvin
