So Kidulthood and Adulthood came on TV the other day. Kidulthood had been on before, but for Adulthood June 20th 2011 this was the first time. The big terrestrial TV premiere.
Kidulthood had done well it trended on Twitter top in the UK and so had a couple of the lead male actors, proving that the film still resonated with people of all ages around the country - it still had the power to affect people.
A week later Adulthood came on and literally social networking went crazy. The fans came out and watched and supported, and this little film from the UK and myself for one night only trended worldwide, from the sheer force of people watching and mentioning it and my name.
Trending worldwide is usually reserved for extra famous (which I’m not) or people dead (which I’m not, as far as I’m aware, yet) so to see it up there was nice.
The film was a real team effort. No one is bigger than the films and I’m mad appreciative that people still love the movies and the actors in them.
The truth is this though - that was just one night, careers are about longevity and quality so even though we trended for one night, in the grand scheme of things it actually means nothing. The next morning I still got up and went to work and did the shopping.
What’s important is appreciating and supporting the people that support you. And I do, so thank you all very much for showing that support.
Lots of people tell me I should do a 3rd part to the films (I can’t lie and say I don’t have an idea) but for many reasons I don’t think I should, but if anything made me think about it more, it was the response I and the films were given by you.
So what do you think? time for #BROTHERHOOD ?
