The London Film Festival has been slowly ramping up over the past couple of weeks with press screenings but today is the big day when things kick off with all guns blazing! Never Let Me Go opens the London Film Festival 2010 and newly announced Spider-Man Andrew Garfield was joined by Keira Knightley, Carey Mulligan, Isobel Meikle-Small, Ella Purnell, writers Kazuo Ishiguro (novel), Alex Garland (screenplay) and director Mark Romanek who are all in town for their new movie’s gala opening. If you’ve not seen the trailer for the movie, you can check it out here. I’ve only heard good things about it so far and it is on general release in the UK 21st January.

As the stars hit the red carpet for the opening of the LFF, we have some rather nice photos from taken before the screening and the press conference of all the names listed above. Also if you scroll down, you can watch the press conference in full.

You can keep track of all our London Film Festival coverage by clicking here or using the logo on the right hand side of the site, and our review of Never Let Me Go will be on the site later tonight.
