Rise of the Guardians UK Premiere
Tonight London’s Leicester Square was filled with fairytale magic for the UK premiere of DreamWorks’ latest animated movie, Rise of the Guardians, ahead of its release in UK cinemas on 30 November.
Based on William Joyce’s book The Guardians of Childhood, the film follows Tooth Fairy (Isla Fisher), Jack Frost (Chris Pine), Santa Claus (Alec Baldwin), Easter Bunny (Hugh Jackman) and the Sandman as they battle to save the world’s children from the nightmares which the bogeyman Pitch (Jude Law) is about to unleash.
