Colin Farrell is well-known for his larger-than-life personality, but he looked rather unimposing when he showed up for his latest premiere with 6ft 5in fellow actor Michael Clarke Duncan.

The Irish hunk was attending the screening of his new thriller SWAT, in which he stars alongside Samuel L Jackson. And his co-star was likewise accompanied by a statuesque escort, as he arrived on the red carpet with basketball legend Magic Johnson.

Fans who had gathered outside the theatre were treated to a feast of fashion, as the movie's stars were all dressed to kill. Michelle Rodriguez, who you'll recognize from The Fast And The Furious, had ditched her trademark punk look in favour of a svelte Emanuel Ungaro dress. "I'm so over looking butchy," she said. "I'm just a little more courteous these days."

Rapper-turned-actor LL Cool J came along with his daughters Simon and Italia, who opted for understated Burberry, while Samuel L Jackson was dressed from head to toe in Armani purple.

It was all a long way from the jet-black combat fatigues they wear in the flick. SWAT follows the story of a police assault team who find themselves besieged by gangsters after taking an underworld kingpin into custody. But that's all in a day's work for the Hollywood tough-guys like Colin and Sam.

Other big names who turned out for the screening included Kylie Minogue's boyfriend Olivier Martinez, who also appears in the film.
