James McTeigue's anticipated crime thriller "The Raven" has been premiered in Los Angeles on Monday night, April 23. Taking place at the Los Angeles Theatre, the special screening event was attended by lead actor John Cusack and his beautiful co-star Alice Eve.
Cusack looked dapper in an all-black suit for the formal event. At one point, the 45-year-old actor, who plays author Edgar Allan Poe in the thriller, stole the cameramen's attention as he posed with a real raven on the black carpet.
Eve, meanwhile, became the belle of the ball with her elegant look. The blond beauty stepped out in a sexy LBD, with a cut detail on the shoulder. She teamed her simple-but-chic dress with a couple of bangles and a pair of eye-catching bright blue heels.
Another cast member spotted on the black carpet was Luke Evans. The actor playing Poe's buddy Emmett Fields in the movie oozed masculinity in a gray suit that he paired with a tieless white shirt.
Among the famous faces seen attending the event were Audrina Patridge and Krysten Ritter. The former kept it simple in pants and blazer, while the latter looked daring in a red flowers-patterned dress. Allison Lohman, Bonnie Sommerville, Kimberly Cole and Carly Craig were the other celebrities spotted that night.
"The Raven" follows Poe and Fields who are engaged in a deadly cat-and-mouse game with a sadistic serial killer, who resembles a fictional murder described in gory details in the local newspaper-part of a collection of stories written by Poe. The movie will open wide in the U.S. on April 27.
