The Irish premiere of the new Downton Abbey movie took place in Dublin on Wednesday night.

Downton Abbey, the movie

The film by Universal Pictures follows on from the hit ITV show Downton Abbey and stars the original, all-star cast. Maggie Smith, Michelle Dockery and Hugh Bonneville are just some of the leading actors in the movie. Allen Leech, the Irish actor behind the character of Tom Branson, also returns for the grand motion picture.

It comes almost four years after the final episode aired on television, and is written by the show’s creator, Julian Fellowes.

Leech’s parents joined other Irish celebrities for the premiere at the Stella Theatre in Rathmines. Some familiar faces included Nadine Reid, Marty Whelan, Loraine Keane, Pat Kenny, Andrea Horan and Natalie B Coleman.

Many guests arrived in classic 1920s-style glamour, with Anne Learmont, Rachel Pilkington and Aoibhín Garrihy pulling out all the stops. See all of the red carpet photos, as taken by photographer Andres Poveda, above; or watch the official movie trailer below.
