Harrison Ford & Rachel McAdams at Morning Glory Première

Last night Rachel McAdams braved the English winter weather in a skimpy dress for the première of her latest film Morning Glory.

Hollywood legends Harrison Ford and Diane Keaton also star in the film, although Keaton was not present last night.

Despite the all-star American cast, the film is directed by a Brit, Notting Hill-director Roger Michell. It is written by the lady behind The Devil Wears Prada and 27 Dresses, Aline Brosh McKenna.

Morning Glory tells the story of aspiring news producer Becky Fuller (McAdams) who begins work on the show DayBreak, which is struggling to compete with its larger rivals. She hires Collen Peck (Keaton) to co-host with Mike Pomperoy (Ford). The pair seriously clash and Becky is left trying to salvage the show and her sanity.

Speaking about her role in the film McAdams said:

“I grew up watching Harrison. I loved, loved Raiders of the Lost Ark. It was my favourite, hands down, movie growing up. I wore out the tape. It was surreal working with him; I had to pinch myself.”

She wasn’t the only one in awe of the cast, director Michell, who has spent the last six years making low-budget movies in the UK, said:

“Having Harrison Ford, Jeff Goldblum, Diane Keaton and Rachel McAdams in the same film is a huge plus, but it’s also scary because they’re people I grew up with. Not Rachel obviously but Harrison and Diane were in films I watched as a kid, so the pressure was on. Thankfully they’re very creative and very good fun to work with.”

In the US the film was received with mixed reviews and was considered a disappointment in terms of box office success as it only took about $12 million in it’s opening week, which is low considering the calibre of the cast.

Morning Glory opens in UK cinemas on January 21, take a look at the trailer below.
