Excited to show off their latest film, Thandie Newton and Chiwetel Ejiofor attended the UK premiere of "Half of a Yellow Sun" in London on Tuesday (April 8).

The Oscar-nominated actor looked handsome in a dark suit and white dress shirt while his gorgeous co-star wore a sleeveless black dress with a gold image of an eye on it.

In the drama, the lives of four people during the struggle to establish an independent republic in Nigeria are followed.

Excited for the event, Thandie tweeted, "Hollywood and Nollywood coming to Streatham tonight with Half of a Yellow Sun. Can't wait." Directed by Biyi Bandele, the movie hits theaters in the United States in July.
