Cast and other celebrated figures braved the rain to attend the screening at London's Leicester Square on Wednesday, August 15, 2007.
It was raining in London on Wednesday night (August 15), but that obviously did not stop people to flock down the city's Leicester Square for greeting the cast of "The Bourne Ultimatum" at the U.K. premiere for the movie, which hit commercial theaters across the country Thursday, August 16.
All eyes that night locked on leading man Matt Damon and wife Luciana Barroso as they walked along arm-in-arm, Damon clad in dark suit and white shirt while Barroso looked stunning in a silver long dress.
Damon's co-star Joan Allen and Julia Stiles were also present with the latter commenting the flick would appeal to women because "the girls get to do more interesting things than just walk out of the sea in a bikini".
Apart from the cast members, some other celebrities delightfully managed to pass through the rain for the premiere as well. Among them were "Scream" star Neve Campbell, singer/actress Rachel Stevens, model Helena Christensen, and prominent singer Prince, who arrived at the scene with his entourage plus personal umbrella holder.
The latest installment in hugely successful "Bourne" franchise, "Ultimatum" was released on August 3, 2007 in North America and satisfyingly pulled $69.3 million in its first weekend of release in the region, making it the highest August opening ever. Pic got filmed in multiple locales, including India, Morocco, Spain, France, Germany, and New York City, where it took six weeks for the crew to shoot the climactic car chase downtown.
