Colin Firth, Geoffrey Rush, Helena Bonham Carter, Keira Knightley — this year’s London Film Festival will look a lot like a Richard Curtis movie. The line-up of films for the 16-day October event was announced today. Among the contenders:  Mike Leigh’s new comedy Another Year, Danny Boyle’s new thriller 127 Hours (with James Franco playing a mountain climber trapped under a bolder), and Darren Aronofsky’s ballet drama Black Swan (starring Natalie Portman). Also playing will be The King’s Speech, with Colin Firth as King George VI, Womb, a love story with Doctor Who‘s Matt Smith and ex-Bond girl Eva Green, and The American, the George Clooney hired killer thriller that opened here in America last week.
