The programme for the 57th London Film Festival has been announced. It boasts an impressive list of potential award winners and big long-awaited studio efforts, together with some smaller budgeted pictures and independent films from around the world.
This autumn London’s Leicester Square is expected to see the likes of Tom Hanks, Carey Mulligan, Sandra Bullock and Daniel Radcliffe walking down the red carpet at high profile premiers.
The festival will last just under two weeks and will showcase a huge range of cinema, starting with Paul Greengrass’s latest effort Captain Philips (starring Tom Hanks) and conclude with a closing screening of Saving Mr. Banks (starring, yes, Tom Hanks, pictured above with co-star Emma Thompson).
Other highlights include 12 Years a Slave, the new film by Hunger and Shame director Steve McQueen, The Invisible Woman, which stars Ralph Fiennes as Charles Dickens, and Labor Day starring Kate Winslet.
The London Film Festival will run from 9 – 20 October.
