The 55th Annual BFI London Film Festival has announced that Fernando Meirelles' new film, "360," will open this year's festival.
The film, from the director of "City of God" and "The Constant Gardener," features a script by "The Queen" scribe Peter Morgan and stars Anthony Hopkins, Rachel Weisz, Jude Law and Ben Foster.
"360" covers the globe, from Vienna to Paris to London to Bratislava, all the way to Rio and Denver, and concludes in Phoenix. The film, a profile of love and relationships in the 21st century, starts with one man's decision to stay faithful to his wife and then branches off to explore the intimacies of characters across the world.
The film will have its European premiere at the festival.
This year's BFI London Film Festival, the last under artistic director Sandra Hebron, runs October 12-27.
