London film festival opens, Rolling Stones to star
The London film festival opens on Wednesday with the European premiere of Tim Burton’s stop-motion 3D animation drama “Frankenweenie”, kicking off the 12-day cinema showcase where more than 220 movies and documentaries will be screened.
It closes on October 21 with another European premiere, Mike Newell’s adaptation of the classic Dickens novel “Great Expectations” starring Ralph Fiennes as Abel Magwitch and Helena Bonham Carter as Miss Havisham.
While not yet on a par with other festivals like Cannes and Toronto, which feature world premieres in their official selections, London allows people living in the capital to catch up with the latest arthouse movies from around the globe.
