Sandra Bullock, Tom Hanks, Carey Mulligan and Dame Judi Dench are among the stars confirmed to be walking the red carpet at the 2013 London Film Festival.

Carey Mulligan will attend the premiere of the Coen brothers' new film Inside Llewyn Davis, which filmmaking siblings Joel and Ethan will also attend, while Stephen Frears will join Dame Judi and Steve Coogan on the red carpet for Philomena.

Daniel Radcliffe will be in town for Kill Your Darlings and Ralph Fiennes will present his new directorial project The Invisible Woman.

Other films on the line-up include Jason Reitman's Labour Day, starring Kate Winslet and Josh Brolin, Jim Jarmusch's Only Lovers Left Alive, starring Tom Hiddleston and Tilda Swinton, and Palme d'Or winning lesbian love story Blue Is The Warmest Colour.
