Stepping out to promote his new movie, James Franco attended the "Palo Alto" premiere at the Venice Film Festival on Sunday (September 1).

The "127 Hours" star worked the red carpet in a classy black suit with a white dress shirt, skinny black tie, and aviator sunglasses.

Also at the fest to show off his directorial project, "Child of God," the 35-year-old appears in the dark drama centered around a group of teens with a penchant for finding trouble.

Co-starring with James in the Gia Coppola-directed flick are Emma Roberts, Val Kilmer, Nat Wolff, Christian Madsen, and Keegan Allen.
