‘RocknRolla’ all night at film’s premiere

Guy Ritchie, Madonna enjoy London opening

LONDON — Madonna pit-stopped from her Sticky & Sweet world tour Monday to walk arm-in-arm down the red carpet with hubbie Guy Ritchie for the premiere of “RocknRolla.”

The hometown crowd at London’s Odeon West End whooped and clapped heartily as the credits rolled.

The early buzz for Ritchie’s crime caper suggests a return to form for the helmer after “Swept Away” and “Revolver” drew disappointing box office.

“If people go and see this and like it, I’ll make the second one right away,” promised Ritchie, adding that “RocknRolla” is “the kind of film I like. I’ve made a film for me.”

Producer Joel Silver said “RocknRolla” is something more “sophisticated, polished and evolved” than Ritchie’s early hits “Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels” and “Snatch.”

All the significant cast showed up for the glitzy West End premiere, including Thandie Newton, Gerard Butler, Tom Wilkinson, Toby Kebbell, Tom Hardy, Idris Elba, Mark Strong, Jimi Mistry, Geoff Bell and Matt King. Also in attendance were producer Susan Downey and Josh Berger, president of Warner Bros U.K.
