Meanwhile in Los Angeles, Warren Beatty was shooting his new Howard Hughes movie out on the streets where photographers caught Matthew Broderick and a glammed-up Lily Collins at work. The still-untitled film centres on an affair the elderly Hughes (played by Beatty) had with a younger woman. Costars include Annette Bening, Martin Sheen, Alden Ehrenreich, Brooklyn Decker, Oliver Platt and Candice Bergen. The film will be out next year.

And over in Dublin, actors Rachel Weisz, Colin Farrell, Lea Seydoux, Aggeliki Papoulia (Alps) and Roger Ashton-Griffiths (Game of Thrones) were caught on camera as they shot their new fantasy-drama The Lobster, the English-language debut of award-winning Greek filmmaker Giorgos Lanthimos (Dogtooth). Set in the near-future, it's about a group of single people who are told they have 45 days to find a partner, or they'll be turned into animals.
