The cast were out in force to support the screening of the film that tells the story of the hapless titular barber, who finds himself unwittingly drawn into a murder investigation. Carlyle stars as Thomson, with Emma Thompson wrinkling up to play his dear old mum. Although Thompson was unable to attend because she's currently shooting Disney's Beauty And The Beast remake, cast members including James Cosmo, Martin Compston, Ashley Jensen, Brian Pettifer, Tom Courtenay, Sam Robertson and Kevin Guthrie all graced the red carpet.
Carlyle introduced the screening to a packed Festival Theatre in Edinburgh, recalling when he first started out on stage he played to "three nuns and a whippet".
