There were three big red carpet events in London this week. On Wednesday, Dark Shadows had its world premiere in Leicester Square with Johnny Depp, Michelle Pfeiffer, Helena Bonham Carter and Tim Burton.

Still from the new film Prometheus

At Royal Festival Hall on Thursday, Sacha Baron Cohen launched his new comedy The Dictator, which distributor Paramount is refusing to show to the press.And Friday brought out Julie Delpy and Chris Rock with their comedy-drama 2 Days in New York.

Chris Rock was also in New York, joining Cameron Diaz on the red carpet for the premiere of the ensemble rom-com What to Expect When You're Expecting. Diaz was looking particularly sleek and stylish, in contrast to the hugely pregnant fitness guru she plays in the film.

Up next for Diaz, she'll replace Angelina Jolie in Ridley Scott's next movie The Counselor, which costars Michael Fassbender and Brad Pitt. This means we'll have to wait a while longer for another big-screen Brangelina appearance.

Meanwhile, we got a further glimpse of the previous teaming of Fassbender and Scott. Another new trailer for the Alien prequel Prometheus debuted this week, continuing to build excitement for what looks like a seriously epic sci-fi blockbuster. Noomi Rapace, Charlize Theron and Idris Elba costar in the film, which opens on 1st June.

Bruce Willis Filming 'A Good Day To Die Hard'


Rise of the Guardians isn't out until November, but a new trailer is already building anticipation. Chris Pine, Jude Law and Hugh Jackman voice characters in the animated thriller about the secret society of the Tooth Fairy, Easter Bunny and Father Christmas, whose job is to protect humanity from the Boogeyman.

Speaking of Chris Pine, filming was completed this week on J.J. Abrams' Star Trek sequel, which reunites him with Zachary Quinto, Zoe Saldana, Simon Pegg, Anton Yelchin and Karl Urban from the 2009 reboot, plus Benedict Cumberbatch as the villainous Khan. Although we have to wait a whole year until it's released.

And filming is still underway in Budapest on the fifth Die Hard movie, A Good Day to Die Hard, where some bright spark caught a glimpse of Bruce Willis strolling through the set.
