Thu Nov 08, 2012 5:36 pm

I was in London at the weekend Doing some work at the filming location of the new Bruce Willis ,Helen Mirren movie Red 2,and during some free time decided to go to the waxworks.It was a nice visit with some good likenesses but a very expensive ticket price(£29.95)and the Elvis waxwork is an old one

I wondered if it might be that thinking it resembled Audrey but I don't recall seeing the movie. Yeah the Craig one looks good too. Funny, I just watched his first two Bond films again back to back last night in preparation for tomorrow's US release of Skyfall.

Looks like you had a great time! Interesting, Ken, that you're working on the film! Like to hear whatever you can tell about that.

(Our little ole great wax museum out here has finally closed its doors. Gotta go to the "real" Hollywood, to go to an exhibit, and see what's shakin.' I love those places; they're weird and fun; weirdly fun!)

Glad to hear you had a wonderful time, and thanks for the pics! :smt006 :D

Hi Robin
The work at the film location was nothing very glamorous,just security work, i was just telling people that the road was closed while they were filming a car chase scene,and using simulated gunfire(but it was paid work lol)

(Am glad you did not post any pic with any politicians, too many threads on politics ad nauseum here lately.)

It's some since time I went, and I had a look at the pics from then, and Elvis must have been appalling, as I didn't even take a pic of it.

Here are some I took then.
Darcey Bussell was outstandingly good. The pose was perfect, technically, and the muscles and face were amazingly done.
Sir Tom's skin tone was far too dark (so was Harrison Ford's).

Jane, that is actually Tom Jones, he must've been visiting at the same time as you, surely.
I think you're mistaken, MJ's skin is tone is too dark.

I think it was one from the 68 especial, right? It was so bad I didn't even take photos.
