George Clooney has three films showing at this year’s London film festival – Fantastic Mr Fox, The Men Who Stare at Goats and Up in the Air.

Fox got a big gala premiere last night, Goats screens tonight, Up in the Air shows on Sunday and even The Times wrote a gushing editorial declaring him ‘Fantastic Mr Clooney’. Which, to be fair, I’d mostly agree with – of all the major A-listers he is perhaps the most consistent in doing interesting work within the Hollywood system.
