London has become the city where "Watchmen" held its world premiere on Monday night, February 23. Attracting a huge crowd at the Odeon West End at Leicester Square, the special screening event was marked with the rolling out of one specially-designed carpet, which in contrast to the usual red, takes the black-and yellow color with "Watchmen" lettering and the signature yellow smiley face.
The whole cast ensemble that include Billy Crudup, Carla Gugino, Jackie Earle Haley, Jeffrey Dean Morgan, Malin Akerman, Matthew Goode and Patrick Wilson, were present on the occasion. Dressed to impress, three of the actors, Wilson, Crudup, and Morgan, were seen wearing suits by designer Calvin Klein.
Joining them for the special celebration were director Zack Snyder and producer Deborah Snyder. Other guests seen attending the world premiere included "Stardust" writer Jane Goldman, "St. Trinian's" actress Jodie Whittaker, "Ninja Assassin" actor Rick Yune and British TV personality Jonathan Ross.

Adapted from Alan Moore and Dave Gibbons' comic book series of the same title, "Watchmen" centers on vigilante Rorschach as he investigates the murder of a former hero, the Comedian. Coming across a plot to discredit and murder various heroes, he discovers a far wider-ranging conspiracy involving his colleagues' past which could completely change the course of history. The live-action film will hit the U.S. big screen on March 6.
