Pic goes the distance for premiere

Barrymore, Long travel to London for WB release

London’s Leicester Square played host Thursday to Warner Bros.’ world preem of “Going the Distance.”

The pic’s bicoastal, state-crossed lovers, Drew Barrymore and Justin Long, traversed the sky-blue carpet, greeting swarms of fans prior to the screening.

It was a double-debut evening, as helmer Nanette Burstein (“On the Ropes”), unveiled her first feature flight. The romantic comedy proved that love will forever reign supreme over the guilt of a heavy carbon footprint.

Barrymore explained her initial excitement for the project: “I’ve been in long-distance relationships my whole life, because of my job. I thought this was a very fresh subject. Modern technology and romance is a tricky thing. I’m still trying to figure it out.”
