WHAT’S UP IN WILMYWOOD – 08/28/2013 Sleepy Hollow Premiere, Christmas in Conway and more.

sleepyhollowFirst let me try to articulate because all I keep saying is “Oh my god! Oh my god!” Surely I have more words in my vocabulary. I can tell you that Sleepy Hollow truly was one of the best pilots I have ever seen. The acting was brilliant and the chemistry between Abbie (Nicole Beharie) and Ichabod (Tom Mison) was beautiful as was the cinematography and special effects.

In a nutshell, here is my review:

“Sleepy Hollow blends comedy, drama and suspense better than a strawberry milkshake from Baskin-Robbins.”                             ~Sheila Brothers, What’s Up in Wilmywood

And you can quote me on that!  Last night was filled with crazy excitement and Regal Cinemas had a line out the door that was as longer than the Great Wall of China!  People drove from Salisbury, NC where the pilot was shot, and there were many who have worked on the show in later episodes.  Other folks were simply Tom fans, Orlando fans and Wilmington film fans.

Not only did they have some Sleepy Hollow swag, but an inside look of the show and a special guest. Orlando Jones just happened to show up with Ichabod Crane’s wife, Katrina aka Katia Winter. I will post video for you later today!

The only disappointment of the night was there were a ton of people that waited in line for a very long time and didn’t get in because it was oversold, even after Regal opened a second auditorium to accommodate the masses.  But they did give out Sleepy Hollow t-shirts to those who couldn’t get in.  The people who did get the chance to see the pilot, didn’t get that sweet stuff.  All in all, it just proves the show has a major buzz. The television premiere is Monday, September 16th 9pm EST on FOX.

  1. Hey, Sheila
    Thought I saw you whiz on by while I waited on line for SLEEPYHOLLOW. Have to say, I understand the concept of over-booking, but there was no way they weren’t going to have a full house. Maybe there were 100 people in the lobby, but there were at least that many waiting outside…………….and we didn’t get any SWAG, so they must have run out of that pretty quick as well. They need to come up with a better way to handle the ticket situation. 200 pissed off ticket holding potential fans is not the way to do it. Just sayin’.
