Last night Leicester Square played host to a lavish spectacle of movie stars, dancing and red carpet glamour, not seen since the glory days of the silver screen - thanks to the UK premiere of Baz Luhrmann's upcoming epic action adventure AUSTRALIA.
AUSTRALIA is an epic and romantic action adventure, set in that country on the explosive brink of World War II. In it, an English aristocrat (NICOLE KIDMAN) travels to the faraway continent where she meets a rough-hewn local (HUGH JACKMAN) and reluctantly agrees to join forces with him to save the land she inherited. Together, they embark upon a transforming journey across hundreds of miles of the world’s most beautiful yet unforgiving terrain, only to face the bombing of the city of Darwin by the Japanese forces that attacked Pearl Harbor . With his new film, Luhrmann is painting on a vast canvas, creating a cinematic experience that brings together romance, drama, adventure and spectacle.
AUSTRALIA is released nationwide Boxing Day 2008
