Friday, 10th October 2008
Colin Firth, Rachel Weisz, Thandie Newton, Penelope Cruz and Benecio del Toro are just a few of the celebrities expected at the 52nd London Film Festival, which runs this 15 to 30 October in the capital.
Fifteen films will have their world premieres at the festival, including the new James Bond film, Quantum of Solace. Tickets are fully booked for the 007 showing at the Odeon West End, but that shouldn't stop countless fans from lining up for Daniel Craig in Leicester Square.
W. (23 and 24 October): Josh Brolin stars as George Bush the younger in Oliver Stone's look at the current American president's life (alcohol problems included). Thandie Newton plays Condi, with Ellen Burstyn as good old Babs Bush.
