LONDON, Oct 20, 2009 / FW/ — Before George Clooney was ‘Up in the Air’ in Rome last Saturday, he was the Fantastic Mr. Fox in London on October 14th.
Opening The Times BFI 53rd London Film Festival, Fantastic Mr. Fox is a 2009 stop motion animated film based on Roald Dahl’s book of the same name. It is the first animated film directed by Wes Anderson, and 20th Century Fox’s first stop-motion animated film.
With an ensemble cast, Fantastic Mr. Fox features the voices of George Clooney, Meryl Streep, Bill Murray, Willem Dafoe, Michael Gambon and Jason Schwartzman.
As expected, the cast attended the press conference during the day. But, it was the gala showing that night which was very interesting.
George Clooney arrived with gal pal Elisabetta Canalis who was dressed in a one-shoulder gown with leather trim and thigh-high slit.
Clooney and Canalis might have been the topic of gossip columns the next day, but it was Cindy Crawford who owned the red carpet with her black deep V-neck dress by Roberto Cavalli.
