Denzel Washington and Viola Davis looked happy Monday night on the red carpet during the premiere of their critically-acclaimed drama, Fences.

The stars are reprising their roles for the film, which was adapted from the August Wilson play of the same name. 

Viola ravished in a black and fuchsia gown that hugged her toned figure in all the right places.?

She wore her short hair wavy around her face and finished off her look with dark eyes and a red lip, while walking the red carpet with her husband.

Denzel, who also directed the film, looked dapper in a black suit that he paired with a white collared-suit and blue tie.?

The 61-year-old star was joined by his wife Pauletta, who looked way younger than her 66 years in a sheer turtle neck top and and knee-length black skirt. 

She wore her dark hair up in a sophisticated bun and kept her makeup fresh and clean with a dollop of red lipstick as the focal point on her face.?

The two highly-acclaimed actors lead the rest of the cast down the red carpet as they got ready to premiere their latest film, including Russell Hornsby who plays Lyons Maxwell.?

He walked the carpet with his?wife Denise Walker, who stunned in a silky blue long-sleeved wrap dress and gorgeous blue necklace.

Russell looked sophisticated as he chose to keep warm in a grey overcoat and dark grey pants. He wore a checkered sweater under warm jacket.?

Fences is based on the Pulitzer Prize-winning drama by August Wilson, who wrote the play in 1983.

It premiered on Broadway in 1987 and closed just over a year later in 1988. It's had a few revivals through the years, both on Broadway in New York and the west end in London.

Most notably, the play returned to Broadway in 2010, with Washington and Davis playing the lead roles. Both actors won Tony awards for their performances.?

Now, the duo is teaming up again to bring their beloved and highly successful play to the big screen.?

Fences is set in the lower-middle-class black area of Pittburgh in the mid-1950s.

It centers on Troy (played be Denzel), a 53-year-old man who struggles to provide for his family. Troy was a great baseball player when he was younger, but spent time in prison for an accidental murder he committed during a robbery.?

To provide for his family, he works as a trash collector and maintains a good relationship with his wife, Rose (played by Davis).?

The trailer promises lots of drama and some great acting between the two leads. It featured some tense scenes between Washington and Davis, and their son played by Jovan Adepo.
