Nicole Kidman joined her Stoker costars Mia Wasikowska and Matthew Goode in London last night for a special screening. Decked out in a dress from her designer friend L'Wren Scott, Nicole posed for photos both inside and outside of the city's Curzon Soho theater. Having the screening in the UK may have helped Nicole get her hands on the dress — it was fresh of the runway of L'Wren Scott's Autumn/Winter 2013 show that took place in London on Saturday! Stoker is out in both the UK and the US on March 1. Stoker debuted at Sundance last month, though, to quite good early reviews.
Nicole Kidman showed off her wintry chic style in a fitted coat at the Sundance Film Festival premiere of her thriller Stoker on Sunday afternoon. Once inside the screening, Nicole showed off a very formfitting dress on stage. She was joined by her costars Mia Wasikowska, Matthew Goode, and Dermot Mulroney on the red carpet. We got a first look at the movie's creepy vibe when the Stoker trailer was released in the Fall, and last night the audience was finally treated to Korean director Chan-wook Park's latest. Nicole then went on to party the night away with fellow festivalgoers. Nicole is coming right off her glamorous Golden Globes night with husband Keith Urban, though he skipped out on the trip to Park City, UT.
The stars were in great spirits following the BAFTA awards last night, as they went for dinner at Grosvenor House Hotel and then partied at Soho House! The winners, including Carey Mulligan, Colin Firth and Kathryn Bigelow, posed with their awards, and Carey and Claire Danes were among the stars that stopped to sign autographs for the waiting fans outside. Bonnie Wright and Jamie Campbell Bower had a fun time, playing games and making faces as they sipped on their drinks, Aaron Johnson was amusingly protective over his fiancee Sam Taylor-Wood's baby bump, and Gabourey Sidibe got a warm hug from Jeremy Renner.
Anna Kendrick, Saoirse Ronan and Audrey Tautou looked cute as they posed for photos, while Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart left the party together! Other guests included James Corden, George Lamb, Tom Ford, Tahar Rahim and Nicholas Hoult, while Little Boots and The Saturdays performed.

Several actors walked the red carpet this weekend at the London Film Festival and Rome Film Festival. Nicholas Hoult, Tom Ford, Colin Firth and Matthew Goode looked handsome in their suits at the premiere for A Single Man in London, and the capital also saw the premiere of Viggo Mortensen's The Road. Helen Mirren was in Rome for the The Last Station, and Terry Gilliam and Lily Cole were also in Italy for The Imaginarium Of Doctor Parnassus premiere. Director Jason Reitman was in London for the premiere of Up in the Air on Sunday, having joined George Clooney and Elisabetta Canalis for the Rome premiere the night before! As part of his promotion for his films, George has opened up about his relationships and growing old:
- On relationships: "I’ve had some absolutely great relationships and some not so great relationships. I’ve been in some relationships where I’ve felt terribly alone. Just because you’re with someone it doesn’t mean you’re incredibly happy and complete. I’ve had some easy and natural, made-sense breakups as well as some rough ones. I deal with them the same way we all do: I’m successful with some and not so successful with others."
- On getting older: "I’m kind of comfortable with getting older because it’s better than the other option, which is being dead. So I’ll take getting older. It’s an interesting thing to be able to watch yourself grow older on screen. I was watching Up In The Air and I thought, ‘Jesus, who’s the old, grey-haired guy?’ And it was me."
The Venice Film Festival came to a close at the weekend. Jared Leto displayed yet another hairstyle as he joined Diane Kruger to premiere their film Mr Nobody after a photocall with their costars, then he hot-footed it back to New York for Fashion Week. The manjoyment at the festival was taken up another notch at the photocall and premiere of A Single Man, which saw director Tom Ford, Colin Firth, Nicholas Hoult and Matthew Goode get smart in suits and ties. Julianne Moore dazzled amongst the men in her green dress, and made it onto FabUK's leading ladies list. Colin Firth was honoured with the Best Actor award at the Closing Ceremony on Saturday, while director Samuel Maoz won the coveted Golden Lion Award.

The cast of the movie, including Malin Ackerman, Billy Crudup, Matthew Goode, Carla Gugino and Jeffrey Dean Morgan showed up in their finest on the yellow, smiley-faced carpet last night, and greeted famous fans of the book including Jonathan Ross, John Thomson, gorgeous Rob Kazinsky and also Rhydian Roberts!
If you fancy checking out the book before the movie is released, you can catch up with the discussion in Buzz's book club! The film opens March 6, after a lawsuit between Fox and Warner Bros. prolonged the wait for the movie.

Miramax has made the brave decision of releasing a film version of Brideshead Revisited which takes a fair few liberties with Evelyn Waugh's novel. If you've read it (which I did for September's PopUK Book Club) you may find the alterations distracting, but view the film as a separate entity and you can marvel at the acting and cinematography.
It tells the story of Charles Ryder (Matthew Goode) and his involvement with the aristocratic Flytes, from his Oxford days with Sebastian (Ben Whishaw) to his relationship with Julia (Hayley Atwell). The family are controlled by Lady Marchmain (Emma Thompson) and her strict Catholic views, while Lord Marchmain (Michael Gambon) lives with his mistress in Venice.
The most outstanding aspect of the film for me was the cinematography. The action moves between the glowing buildings of Oxford University, the dark corners of a London house, the stately grounds of Brideshead, the luxury of a cruise ship, the waterways of Venice and the hot streets of Morocco. The different qualities of light, as well as the beautiful locations, are truly breathtaking. This is a feast for the eyes, and a sumptuous celebration of the visual.
