Hollywood star Chris Pine is to attend the Scottish premiere of the Netflix blockbuster about Robert the Bruce in Edinburgh next week.

The Star Trek favourite, who plays the heroic Scottish monarch, will be joined by co-stars Aaron Taylor-Johnson, Billy Howle, James Cosmo and Tony Curran at the Omni cinema on 19 October.

Director David Mackenzie, whose previous films include Young Adam, Perfect Sense, and Hell or High Water, will also be at the premiere, along with long-time collaborator, producer Gillian Berrie.

Outlaw King, which was made by their company Sigma Films with financial backing from Netflix, is said to be the biggest film production ever made in Scotland.

The film, which will be launched on Netflix next month, was shot at locations across the country, including Craigmillar, Blackness and Doune castles, as well as in Aviemore, Glencoe and at Linlithgow Palace.

Outlaw King received £1 million in public funding via Creative Scotland but generated £17.5 million for the economy from the location filming.
