Clooney pix topline London fest
Lineup includes 'Ides of March,' 'Descendents'

LONDON -- Double doses of George Clooney and Michael Fassbender topline the 55th BFI London Film Festival, which once again provides the U.K. launchpad for many Oscar and BAFTA contenders premiered at Venice and Toronto.
Clooney will attend with his political drama "The Ides Of March" and Alexander Payne's "The Descendents," while Fassbender will display his range in Steve McQueen's "Shame" and David Cronenberg's "A Dangerous Method."

This year's festival, which runs Oct 12-27, is the swansong of artistic director Sandra Hebron after nine years in charge. For her final event, she has programmed 204 fiction and documentary features, including 11 world premieres, 18 international premieres and 22 European premieres.

The LFF benefits from another strong year for British cinema, with local premieres for Lynne Ramsay's "We Need to Talk About Kevin," Michael Winterbottom's "Trishna," Ralph Fiennes' "Coriolanus," Andrea Arnold's "Wuthering Heights" and Nick Murphy's "The Awakening," plus the world premiere of Marc Evans' "Hunky Dory."

There's also a first chance for the London audience to see Madonna's "W.E."

As previously announced, the fest will open with Fernando Meirelles' "360" and close with Terence Davies' "The Deep Blue Sea," both starring Rachel Weisz. Another actress doing double duty at the fest is Vanessa Redgrave, who stars in "Coriolanus" and in Roland Emmerich's "Anonymous."

The Film On The Square section includes Roman Polanski's "Carnage," Gus Van Sant's "Restless," Werner Herzog's "Into the Abyss: A Tale of Death, A Tale of Life," Todd Solondz's "Dark Horse," Sean Durkin's "Martha Marcy May Marlene," Drake Doremus' "Like Crazy," Miranda July's "The Future," Richard Linklater's "Bernie," Oren Moverman's "Rampart" and Jonathan Demme's "I'm Carolyn Parker."

Among the foreign-language highlights are "The Kid With a Bike" from the Dardennes brothers, Nanni Moretti's "We Have a Pope" and Michel Ocelot's animation "Tales of the Night." "The Artist," Michel Hazanavicius' homage to Hollywood's silent era, will also have a gala screening.

Special events include talks by Payne and Winterbottom. Abi Morgan, Miranda July, Alexandre Desplat and Barry Ackroyd will give masterclasses, and there will be an in-depth look at the making of "We Need to Talk About Kevin" with key members of the cast and crew.

This year's archive gala is the BFI National Archive's restoration of Miles Mander's 1928 silent melodrama "The First Born," with a new score by Stephen Horne.

Eight of the fest's world premieres are in its New British Cinema section, with titles including Carol Morley's "Dreams of a Life," Richard Jobson's "The Sonambulists" and D.R. Hood's "Wreckers."

Calling all UK-based fans to come and report for us because George will be there!

From Hollywood news

George Clooney in London supporting “Ides,” “Descendants”

By: Sean O'Connell

Fri, Oct 14 2011

Despite claims to the contrary (that were made by confused festival organizers), George Clooney intends to be very visible during the BFI London Film Festival in support of his two Oscar-worthy films, “The Ides of March” and “The Descendants.”

A release suggested otherwise, saying Clooney’s commitments could have kept him from walking the red carpet of each film’s high-profile premiere.

But festival reps countered with a statement, picked up by THR, that says Clooney “is absolutely confirmed to attend both screenings,” giving fans (and eager press) something to look forward to in the coming days.

London is the latest stop for Clooney’s films, one of which he directs and stars (“Ides”) and the other in which he merely stars (“The Descendants”). Both are outstanding, with Clooney delivering some of the finest work of his career both in front of and behind the camera. In fact, the Oscar winner is being recognized for his “Descendants” performance at the 15th annual Hollywood Film Awards a week from Monday, Oct. 24.

Before that, Clooney will walk the red carpet and attend the premieres in London, part of the whirlwind tour Clooney has been on since releasing the films … and one that likely should continue as the Oscar marathon drags on.

I'll just bet you can stimulate him, and do an outstanding job, too. Being that George is such a seasoned traveler, he probably has the jetlag thing licked and will be ready for your hi-jinks. Go to it girl.

Paris to London is about two hours by train so not too tiring.

Thank you so much for these pics, Laetval, really happy to see George doing his stuff!

I didn't realize it was so convenient. Actually it takes me longer than that to drive to the Jersey shore. Meaning the beach, not that horrific Jersey Shore show. LOL

Try living in Texas, 2 hours your still in Texas! Thanks once again laetval for all you contribute. He looks good for someone who is not getting a lot of sleep plus all the jet/travel lag. Does he turn around and do it all again for Descendents, not the film festivals but the red carpets, talk shows? Hope he's got some end of year vacation plans.
