London hosted another world premiere this week, with the Royal Performance of The Second Best Exotic  Marigold Hotel following The Gunman into the capital.

There is a marked difference between the two films, with the inevitably named sequel making good on the homespun charm of John Madden’s first film. He returns behind the camera and many of the cast are present once more for the second go around.

The formidable duo of Judi Dench and Maggie Smith, lead a who’s who of British actors; to whit: Bill Nighy, Celia Imrie, Penelope Wilton, Ronald Pickup, Diana Hardcastle, Tena Desae, Dev Patel, Lillete Dubey, David Strathairn and Richard Gere. Those playing IMDb Scrabble will have hit the jackpot right there.

Cassam Looch and Colin Hart were on hand to discuss hotel, exoticism and marigolds tonight, here are their interviews,
