This evening, our intrepid red-carpet reporters Ben Mortimer and Colin hart headed off to London’s Leicester Square for the UK premiere of Anna Karenina. The movie has a fabulous cast and everything we’ve seen from the movie looks simply stunning (watch the trailer here).
Anna Karenina stars Keira Knightley, Jude Law, Aaron Taylor-Johnson, Kelly Macdonald, Matthew Macfadyen, Ruth Wilson, Domhnall Gleeson, Alicia Vikander, Olivia Williams and Emily Watson, many of whom were on the red carpet this evening for the premiere.
Ben and Colin got to catch up with many of the stars named above as well as Director Joe Wright who talks about the look and feel of the movie and Producing legend Tim Bevan (Working Title) who talks Ben through how they choose which moves they’re going to take on and add to their slate. They also got to chat with Juno Temple who was there to see the movie who spoke about her work on Maleficent which she’s about to start filming with Angelina Jolie.
Anna Karenina is released in the UK this Friday 7th September and you can see all our interviews from this evening below.
The third collaboration of Academy Award nominee Keira Knightley with acclaimed director Joe Wright, following the award-winning boxoffice successes “Pride & Prejudice” and “Atonement,” is a bold, theatrical new vision of the epic story of love, adapted from Leo Tolstoy’s timeless novel by Academy Award winner Tom Stoppard (“Shakespeare in Love”). The story powerfully explores the capacity for love that surges through the human heart. As Anna (Ms. Knightley) questions her happiness and marriage, change comes to all around her.
