Something unusual marked the world premiere of "30 Days of Night" in Los Angeles on Tuesday, October 16, 2007. Taking place at Grauman's Chinese Theater in Hollywood, the occasion surprisingly got a black carpet spread instead of the common red one, but this thankfully didn't seem to reduce the merry atmosphere on the spot, brighten up by the presence of famous names in Hollywood.

Major portion of spotlights certainly went to the some of the horror thriller's cast members who made their way to come celebrating the event. Male lead Josh Hartnett was spotted in semi-formal attire while his on-screen wife Melissa George turned many heads with her animal-print ensemble. Others included Danny Huston, Mark Rendall, Ben Foster, and Megan Franich.

Director David Slade was also in attendance as well as producer Sam Raimi and executive producer Mike Richardson. The threesome were joined by VIP guests that included "Xena: Warrior Princess" star Lucy Lawless plus her stunt double Zoe Bell, Raimi's brother Ted Raimi, actress Bai Ling, and renowned special effects artist Stan Winston.

Based on the IDW Publishing comic book miniseries written by Steve Niles and illustrated by Ben Templesmith, "Night" opens in theaters stateside this Friday, October 19, 2007 under Columbia Pictures banner. According to Slade, Raimi initially was slated to direct the movie when the script was in its earliest stages, but in the end opted to only serve as the producer instead.
