Catherine Zeta-Jones will add a touch of glamour to the Dad’s Army red carpet as she joins co-stars Toby Jones, Sir Tom Courtenay and Sir Michael Gambon for the film’s world premiere.
The debut of the remake of the Second World War-set BBC sitcom, which ran from 1968-77, will be held in London’s Leicester Square on Tuesday.
Catherine plays journalist Rose Winters, whose arrival in Walmington-on-Sea to report on Captain Mainwaring (Toby)’s Home Guard sets pulses racing and proves a distraction while the group tries to smoke out a German spy in its midst.
Suddenly the fate of the nation falls in the hands of the all-star British cast that also includes Bill Nighy as Sergeant Wilson, Bill Paterson as Fraser, Daniel Mays as Walker and Blake Harrison as Private Pike.
Joining them for the big-screen remake are the last two surviving cast members of the TV series: Frank Williams, who revives his role as Reverend Timothy Farthing, and Pike actor Ian Lavender, who has a cameo.
The film is out in UK cinemas on February 5.
