Donning dark-colored outfits, Saoirse Ronan and Mark Wahlberg posed for the photographers before entering Paris Theatre in New York City on Wednesday, December 2.

Less than two weeks before it is released in limited theaters in the U.S., "The Lovely Bones" visited New York City for its premiere. On Wednesday, December 2, red carpet was rolled out in front of Paris Theatre to welcome cast and crew for the film who all came to celebrate the special screening event.

Wearing a tight dress, Saoirse Ronan who plays Susie Salmon was seen hitting the red carpet. She was joined by her on-screen father Mark Wahlberg and grandmother Susan Sarandon. Other cast who were seen among the attendees included Michael Imperioli, Nikki SooHoo, Rose McIver, and Stanley Tucci.

Peter Jackson, who serves as director, producer, as well as screenwriter of the film, also did not miss the event. Meanwhile, celebrity guests included actress/model Beth Stern, TV show's host Carson Kressley, actors John Leguizamo and Mark Indelicato, and Academy Award winner Patricia Clarkson.

Adapted from Alice Sebold's best-selling novel, "The Lovely Bones" centers its story on teenage girl Susie Salmon who, after being brutally raped and murdered, watches from heaven as her family and friends go on with their lives, while she herself comes to terms with her own death. The film will hit limited U.S. theaters on December 11 before it opens wide on January 15, 2010.
