Oh well, going to Resorts World Manila is already one toughy but driving into your favorite and much-awaited film being cancelled is much more disappointing. Not for us though, we were not invited to the red carpet by-invitation only from Solar Entertainment where the gala presentation of ‘Les Miserables’ Philippine premiere cancelled at Resorts World Manila due to technical difficulties, held last night (Jan. 9). Such a bummer. Disappointed movie fans and VIP guests, many of them dressed in formal attires, walked-out and expressed their frustrations on Twitter.
“The scheduled by-invitation red carpet premiere of the movie Les Miserables at the Newport Performing Arts Theater was canceled due to technical difficulties.
For any inconvenience caused, guests will be issued free replacement tickets to the regular screening of Les Miserables at the Newport Cinemas from January 16-23 upon presentation of premiere invitations,” Solar Entertainment and Resorts World Manila said in a joint statement.

That should be a good deal but not if you were there last night as you patiently waited for the start of the movie and the voice-over would say “the movie will start in fifteen minutes.”
The much-awaited musical drama film stars Hugh Jackman, Russell Crowe, Anne Hathaway, Amanda Seyfried and Eddie Redmayne. It is based on the classic 1862 French novel by Victor Hugo.
