Final Score actor Dave Bautista was among the famous faces to turn out for the Upton Park-set film’s premiere.
He was joined on the red carpet by co-stars including Martyn Ford, Amit Shah and Lara Peake, as well as director Scott Mann.
Also in attendance at the Ham Yard Hotel in the West End on Thursday evening was West Ham co-owner David Sullivan and his son Jack.
The action film, which also stars Pierce Brosnan, was filmed at West Ham’s former Upton Park home in the summer after the club moved out.
It has been billed as “Die Hard in a football stadium” and centres around an ex-soldier, played by Bautista, who must save the crowd when the stadium is seized by criminals.
John Watts, an actor, model and content creator from Canning Town, was at the premiere and said: “It was amazing.
“I’m a West Ham fan and my grandad used to take me to the games there.
“I remember going to the Boleyn pub before and after, and having pie and mash.”
The 22-year-old added that he was able to have a chat with Bautista at the premiere, who was “really cool”, and that he also spotted a few former West Ham players there.
Final Score is due to be released in cinemas and on Sky Cinema on Friday, September 7.
