After a rousing arrival via luxury boat earlier today for their photo call, Brad Pitt and George Clooney traded in their suits for tuxedos on their way to the 2008 Venice Film Festival premiere of “Burn After Reading.”

It’s one of the most anticipated films of the 2008 Venice Film Festival, and earlier today Brad Pitt and George Clooney joined the cast of “Burn After Reading” for a photo op.
The “Fight Club” stud and his “Ocean’s Eleven” BFF were spotted with co-stars Tilda Swinton and Frances McDormand along with directors Ethan and Joel Coen for the film’s press photo call after arriving on the scene by luxury boat.

Officially, the Academy claims to be moving ahead with the red carpet and awards ceremony as usual, with spokeswoman Leslie Unger telling press: "We are planning to have our show at the Kodak Theatre with an audience of 3,300 people and a television audience significantly larger than that."
It’s that all-important night when the infamous Hollywood critics get their chance to make their voices heard. And the Critics’ Choice Awards (held at the Santa Monica Civic Auditorium last night) was marked with great-looking celebrities and even greater recognition of some amazing work.
