A series of A-list celebrities have jetted to Europe to promote their latest films for the prestigious annual event.
And Meryl Streep, Gary Oldman and Penelope Cruz appeared in great spirits as they arrived in Italy for the 76th Venice Film Festival on Sunday morning.
Into The Woods actress Meryl, 70, cut a typically demure figure as she soaked up the sights of the stunning city alongside The Laundromat co-star Gary, 61, and Spanish screen star Penelope, 45.
Meryl and Gary are in the city to promote their new film The Laundromat - directed by Steven Soderbergh and the first of Netflix's Venice contenders - which recalls the infamous Panama Papers scandal.
The 76th Venice Film Festival sees a highly anticipated lineup compete for the coveted Golden Lion award, with many big Hollywood pictures making their premiere at the annual showcase.
Hirokazu Kore-eda - who won the Palm d'Or at cannes for his 2018 film Shoplifters- opened the festival with his newest picture The Truth.
Leading the so-called Hollywood contenders is the much-anticipated Joker, directed by The Hangover's Todd Phillips, and sees the acclaimed Joaquin Phoenix play the iconic DC villain in a realistic take on his origin story.
