That’s great, it’s my sister’s birthday, I don’t think I can do it. If anyone of you get to, please share the experience here :D

I’m not even close to the U.K., but I’m going to try to listen in on the Q & A session after the movie.

I assume it's 7:20pm Greenwich Mean Time. :dunce And Daylight Savings Time will throw another curve in. So. I'll be online from (Pacific Time) 10:15 am. :mad:

I don't have Zoom, but I already asked Jason a question about his performance, at the premiere in LA last year.

Helen, you can download Zoom on your iPad while watching the movie on Netflix. That’s my plan :D
Then you can listen to the commentary along with the movie.

Char, Rob downloaded Zoom onto my laptop. I see people on TV communicating, I assume, using Zoom, and they're wearing earbuds. Will I need earbuds? :dunce

I don't use earbuds for zoom. If you have speakers, you should be able to listen in. you can mute you own microphone when you listen in if you worry about echo. But I've been fine using Zoom with my computer speakers and microphone. :D

Hey, Char. I saw your posts on Zoom.

When I checked in, it was already in progress. So, I didn't start the movie and waste time looking to catch up, and not paying attention to what Jason et al. were saying. I entered a question (What, besides the bluster, drove you to the role of Field Marshall Zhukov?) Someone must have had a similar question because the BIFA rep asked that one.

There was another Helen, but she was from Russia. I didn't post anything on the panel, and it was a good thing I didn't because my name came up as "Me"! I don't know why.

Anyway, it was very informative about filming the movie. So I'm glad you encouraged me to get Zoom. :hug

i really want that Russian nesting dolls, one with Zhukov (Jason) image on it.
lots of people asked how to get one but nobody answered.
Jason answered that it was the only souvenir he got from the movie.
he loves telling that story about the eviscerated DJ's mannequin from Event Horizon, doesn't he?
