Inching closer to its big theatrical debut, the stars of "The Ides of March" stepped out for their film's premiere in Beverly Hills, California on Tuesday night (September 27).

Looking his usual dapper self, leading man George Clooney opted for a sleek black suit as he was joined at the AMPAS Samuel Goldwyn Theater by his A-list co-stars Evan Rachel Wood, Marisa Tomei and Ryan Gosling.

Also on hand to support the upcoming picture's west coast debut screening was George's latest lady Stacey Keibler, as well as "127 Hours" actress Kate Mara.

While recently talking about his latest project, Clooney offered up his thoughts of why the film has earned such widespread appeal, telling press, "Everywhere it's played, they think it's got something to do with their politics."

He added, "When I had to pitch this movie, I would say, 'OK, here's why it's universal and not just an American film about delegate counts.' I pitched the idea of a morality tale."
