Last night, the red carpet at the Arclight Hollywood was turned into a glittery carpet for the world premiere of Romeo & Juliet.
The film’s stars, including Hailee Steinfeld, Douglas Booth, Ed Westwick & Kodi Smit-McPhee walked the carpet for the premiere of this new telling of the classic Shakespeare tale.
Also stepping out for the premiere were Hailee’s friends Taylor Swift & Bailee Madison.
Romeo and Juliet, William Shakespeare’s epic and searing tale of love, is revitalized on screen by writer Julian Fellowes (Downton Abbey) and director Carlos Carlei (The Flight of the Innocent). An ageless story from the world’s most renowned author is reimagined for the 21st Century. This adaptation is told in the lush traditional setting it was written, but gives a new generation the chance to fall in love with the enduring legend. With an all-star cast including Hailee Steinfeld, Douglas Booth, Paul Giamatti and Stellan Skarsgard, it affords those unfamiliar with the tale the chance to put faces to the two names they’ve undoubtedly heard innumerable times: Romeo and Juliet. Every generation deserves to discover this lasting love.
The film opens October 11, 2014.
