It's 7.00 p.m here in Sweden then.Avatar Imagezoltan42 says: The premiere is streaming at 1:00 DST here on the US east coast. I was just in the cafeteria here at work, and the TV there has on CNN. Right now it is pretty much wall-to-wall build up to the Michael Jackson memorial, and I remember that will be at -- 1:00 DST here on the US east coast. I don't know if the memorial will be streamed on the net, too. If so, I wonder if having the two at the same time will affect web traffic.Avatar ImageLuce_depp says: when i read that title i was picturing like sky writing or the poster behind a plane...which would have been very very very cool!Avatar Imagekbicprez says: All I can say is WOW!Avatar ImageGraymayne says: The weather forecast is not very cheerful for today, I think we can expect some rain to dampen proceedings.Avatar ImageJoost says: Why oh why do they give away Snape's "true allegiance" in the poster campaign...?Avatar Imagebecmajec says: is there any sound on the thing i can't hear anythingAvatar Image1pottyfan says: all add me!!!Avatar ImageMugglejeff says: Cannot wait for the movie.Avatar Imagegirlatty1 says: Okay - now I'm jealous.
