‘The Garfield Movie’ and ‘Furiosa: A Mad Max Saga’ Premieres Make For An Unforgettable Weekend

And DNEG's Talented Teams Were On-Hand to Join In The Fun

A Double Dose of Cinematic Excitement!

This weekend was one to remember for Team DNEG. On Friday, gritty, post-apocalyptic Furiosa vibes took over the BFI IMAX in London, while Hollywood Boulevard in LA was the scene of big dollops of lasagne love on Sunday as The Garfield Movie had its US premiere at the world-famous TCL Chinese Theatre.

The tubby tabby himself was in attendance in LA, alongside members of our ridiculously talented DNEG Animation team and the filmmakers and stars of the show, including Chris Pratt, director Mark Dindal, Garfield creator Jim Davis, and DNEG CEO Namit Malhotra, who is a producer of the movie through his production company Prime Focus Studios.

And two nights prior, the action stars of Furiosa had already kickstarted the weekend festivities with the highly-anticipated London premiere of George Miller’s visionary Mad Max prequel. As Anya Taylor-Joy, Chris Hemsworth, and Tom Burke took to the red carpet, Namit stopped for photos alongside director George Miller:

This unforgettable weekend truly showcased the diversity and creativity of our global DNEG team’s incredible work – from the insane, over-the-top action of Furiosa to the heartwarming fun of Garfield. Stay tuned for more updates as we countdown to their release this weekend!
