Diary: Mars Attacks!

The world of movies is not a constant whirl of glamour, stardust and sober aliens as Fishburn Hedges has recently discovered. A recent FH photo-shoot, featuring an alien outfit from new movie Mars Attacks!, almost failed to materialise. The hiccup occurred when an actor who has been parading Martian-suited through Berlin as part of the film’s European promotion - and who was meant to have couriered the suit to London - got so drunk, he forgot to send it. The shoot, to mark the launch of Barclays sponsorship of UK cinema, only went ahead because film distributors Warner Village used its corporate jet to fly the suit back to London.
