The organisers of the Karlovy Vary International Film Festival have announced that Hollywood star Russell Crowe will attend the 57th edition. A previous star guest, Johnny Depp, is set to appear in this year’s trailer.

Antipodean movie star Russell Crowe, who is 59, will receive Karlovy Vary’s Crystal Globe for outstanding artistic direction to world cinema at the opening of the festival’s 57th edition, the organisers announced on Friday.

In a treat for fans, the actor will also perform to thousands of people at the outdoor opening concert with his rock group Indoor Garden Party.

In addition Crowe will introduce one of his best-known films, Peter Weir’s Master and Commander: The Far Side of the World (2003), to audiences at the region’s biggest cinema event.
