Antonio Banderas and Salma Hayek have been travelling the globe to promote their new animation, Puss in Boots, a spin-off from the successful Shrek franchise. They’re currently in town for the Australian leg of the tour, which included a fun premiere in Sydney yesterday. The festive atmosphere of the film was recreated at the Entertainment Quarter yesterday, with a long yellow carpet covered by a multi-coloured tent and piñatas. Pre-show entertainment included a band and traditional Spanish dancers. A life-size Puss walked the carpet before his voice actor Antonio, who signed autographs for fans and then joined leading lady Salma to pose with the cat. The sunny weather also meant it was a great family day out for some Aussie stars who attended, including Amanda Keller, Larry Emdur, Napoleon Perdis, and Robert, Bindi and Terri Irwin. Puss in Boots is released in cinemas on Dec. 8.
