Stars of the silver screen and television arrived for the 57th annual British Film Institute (BFI) London Film Festival and began the week with a fundraising gala.
A number of potential big screen hits are scheduled for this year's event, including Tom Hanks' turn in Paul Greengrass' account of the 2009 hijacking of a US container ship by Somali pirates, Captain Phillips.
Hanks will be back in 12 days time, when the festival closes, for a showing of Saving Mr Banks, where he plays Walt Disney.
Sir Christopher Lee will be honoured with a Fellowship for his contribution to film and television.
Lee, 91, who has played Dracula, a Bond villain and an evil wizard in the Lord of the Rings, described the award as "a great privilege".
