She clashed the suit fashionably against a glinting black blouse and added a wintry touch by wrapping on a canary yellow scarf.

Denzel was spotted Thursday night wearing a charcoal suit at the premiere of their new film at the Directors Guild Of America theater complex in Los Angeles.

Meanwhile Frances attended the event draped in a long floral overcoat, posing up a storm against her iconic co-star.

The upcoming movie is directed by Frances’ husband Joel Coen and is the first film he has made without his brother Ethan having any hand in it.

‘This is an adaptation of a play that’s almost 400 years old. It’s stood the test of time,’ Joel told the audience at Thursday’s premiere according to the Hollywood Reporter.

‘Time is in many ways what this movie is about. Time is a seam that runs through the play. It’s mentioned in the text over 40 times.’

Joel, whose latest movie comes out Christmas Day, added: ‘It’s a murder story in which the playwright has woven that obsession into the story.’

Meanwhile Denzel, who had never been directed by a Coen brother before this film, gave his view of what sets Joel apart.

‘Everyone has different gifts. I’ve worked with so many great directors, from Spike [Lee] to Jonathan Demme,’ he said graciously. 

‘Everybody’s different, but Joel’s focus and attention to detail are really incredible,’ said Denzel, who won the best actor Oscar for the 2002 film Training Day.
