Universal Pictures are turning 100 this year, and their anniversary plans are a little more ambitious than those of most centenarians — let’s be honest, at that age you’re well within your rights to just sit around smoking fags and waiting for the Queen’s letter to show up. As well as premiering the spiffy new studio ident pictured above (is that a full stop at the end? Bitches be crazy) they’re re-releasing — and in some cases restoring — sixteen of their most momentous filmmaking achievements … and Mamma Mia!.
To celebrate, I’ve got a pair of tickets to give away for a special one-off tour of famous London filming locations from various Universal movies, including Notting Hill, Bridget Jones’s Diary, Love Actually and various other titles from Hugh Grant’s IMDb entry. You’ll also be treated to a ‘wedding themed buffet lunch’ in this room:
The tour kicks off in West London at 9am next Monday (30th) so obviously don’t enter if you’ve got a proper job or something.
A winner will be selected on Friday morning. Oh, and I’m contractually obliged to mention this:
All the films featured in the tour are available on Blu-ray and DVD so you can revisit these famous movie locations time and time again. For a lifetime of memories, prizes and opportunities visit www.facebook.com/universalpicturesuk.
There we are. Now everybody’s happy.
