Glamour girl: Angelina Jolie attended the premiere of her film tonight in Croatia without Brad Pitt and still looked amazing

As the Jolie-Pitt promotional train rolled on into another country one half of the power couple was noticeable by their absence.

Brad Pitt, who had been by his wife's side for the previous two screenings stayed well tonight and let Angelina Jolie take all the attention at the premiere of her movie In the Land of Blood and Honey.

The screening, which took place at the Cinestar movie hall in Zagreb, Croatia, was packed full of screaming fans who all wanted a chance to see their screen idol in person, and Jolie didn't disappoint them.

The 36-year-old looked stunning in a copper coloured dress and proved that less is more as her garment completely covered her while at the same time showing off her superb figure.

Jolie was radiant in the long sleeved number and wore her brown locks down with a few gentle curls which she accessorised with a pair of diamond earrings.

The superstar seemed almost overwhelmed by the enthusiastic and warm reception given to her by the crowd as she signed autographs and posed for pictures.

After spending time on the red carpet answering questions and waving to the crowd, Angelina then welcomed her cast members to step into the limelight.

Amongst the stars were Bosnian actress Zana Marjanovic and Serbian-born Croatian actor Rade Serbedzija who stood close to their former director.

Zana, 28, plays the female lead in the movie and she looked every inch the leading lady as she hugged up to Jolie in a cream dress.

Rade, 65, who also starred in Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part II, cut a dashing figure in an all black outfit with a matching a hat.

Set against the backdrop of the Bosnian war, the film tells the story of a Bosnian Serbian soldier Danijel (Goran Kostić), who comes across former love Ajla (Zana Marjanović), a Bosniak woman who is now a captive in the military prison camp he oversees.

The actress revealed her directorial experience on the movie helped her appreciate film again, after 'becoming disheartened,' with the medium.

She said: 'This film has taught me to love film again because I see what film can do and I see and I am re-inspired because I was not feeling very inspired as an actress. I was feeling very disheartened.

'I came to this film not because I wanted to be a director, I came to this film because the more I researched, the more I learned, the more angry I got.'

Angelina said she hoped the film was a 'wake-up call' for the international community to pay more attention to atrocities and act to prevent them in countries such as Syria, where a government crackdown has killed thousands in the past year.

'I am satisfied with what we made,' she said. 'I feel very strongly about it and I believe that its core issue - which is the need for intervention and need for the world to care about atrocities when they are happening - is very, very timely and especially with things that are happening in Syria today.'

The Croatia screening comes just one day after the actress premiered her movie in Paris, France.

Jolie took to the red carpet in the long white garment and even her gorgeous husband couldn't steal the limelight from her in her sophisticated outfit.

She wore her hair down and kept her make-up simple with her famous full pout covered in red lipstick and a small amount of dark eyeliner highlighting her eyes.

Her special dress had a large flower creation that resembled a white rose on the left shoulder with small black stone detail lining the upper creases of the dress.
