One Direction introduced their new movie to the fans on Tuesday. The This Is Us stars arrived on the London red carpet in front of Leicester Square in a caravan of vehicles and when the door opened the crowd roared with excitement.
Niall Horan, Zayn Malik, Liam Payne, Harry Styles and Louis Tomlinson looked spry as they arrived to meet the One Direction crowd. The fans, lined up as far as the eye could see, had been waiting for this moment. Some even spent several days sleeping in the park just to catch a glimpse of the lads as they walked across the red carpet for the first time.
Knowing that the world was watching, as the premiere was broadcast live around the globe, the moment of introducing the new film had arrived for the British band. However, before the guys talked about themselves, they thanked the fans.
Niall Horan was the first band member to the microphone thanking the individuals who supported the band. Reminding everyone it’s only been a couple of years since the band was formed, how popular the pop stars have become reflects on how loyal the fans have been to the group. His band mates echoed the appreciation for the fans as well.
With a pen in hand and lots of smiles, the five guys took to the awaiting crowd and started doing what they do best. Signing pictures and posing for photos, the stars seemed delighted to give back some time while pitching what some say could be the next big theater film.
