COLIN Farrell was suited and booted with several other Hollwood A-listers at the premiere of his latest movie in LA last night.

The opening night of 'Saving Mr Banks' took place during AFI Fest in California.

The film – which boasts a cast of Tom Hanks and Emma Thompson alongside Farrell – is already tipped for Oscar glory.

John Lee Hancock's film centres around the story of making a beloved Disney classic – Mary Poppins – from 1964. The drama revolves around the funny relationship between PL Travers, the no-nonsense British woman who wrote the novel Mary Poppins, and Walt Disney.

Earlier, the Dubliner attended a hand and footprint ceremony for Emma Thompson at the TCL Chinese Theatre in LA. Farrell (37) was back in Tinseltown after a brief stint at home.

Meanwhile, a trailer for Winter's Tale shows Colin in romantic clinches with Jessica Brown Findlay, who played Lady Sybil in Downton Abbey. In this film she plays a Manhattan heiress who falls in love with a thief with Irish charm.
