Following the bleak surrealism (with the emphasis on realism) from Greek director Yorgos Lanthimos’ Dogtooth and Alps The Lobster arrives on these fair shores for its London Film Festival Gala screening.

Telling the story of the torpid struggle of single people in a strange dystopian future, The Lobster has Colin Farrell and Rachel Weisz facing a bizarre end if they do not couple up (with each other or with others) in The Hotel – a last chance saloon of sorts.

Ben Whishaw, Léa Seydoux and John C Reilly complete the cast, we have an exclusive clip from the film (which well shows off its wonderfully odd tone) you can watch here, or read our review of the film here.

Cassam Looch and Colin Hart were our chaps on the carpet this evening, here’s how they got on.
