Getty has already uploaded a nice selection of Cloud Atlas Moscow premiere pics. In addition to Hugo, Halle Berry, Bae Doona, Lana and Andy Wachowsi and Tom Tykwer were in attendance. I’ll continue adding new images as they roll in:
“Doona Bae, Hugo Weaving and Halle Berry attend the premiere of Warner Bros. Pictures’ ‘Cloud Atlas’ in Oktyabr cinema hall on November 1, 2012 in Moscow, Russia.” Photos #1-6: Epsilon/Getty Images

Hugo and Halle Berry attend to the evening’s fan service 😉
You can see many more images, particularly of Halle Berry, at Getty’s website.
Here’s another new pic from Moscow, courtesy Buro247.ru:

Here’s some raw footage of the red carpet; you might want to skip ahead to the 3 minute mark, and Hugo doesn’t appear until near the end (but it’s worth the wait.)
Here’s a great fan photo:

You can read Russian press coverage of the premiere, including the Wachowskis and Tom Tykwer’s press conference, at RG.RU (2nd article here), Izvestia (2nd, Matrix-themed piece here), Kommersant, Ridus.ru and News.mail.ru. Yes, these articles are in Russian, but Google does a serviceable job translating them. (Serviceable does not mean perfect, by any means, but you’ll get the gist, particularly since the directors have had similar discussions with reporters in English.)

These seem to be the same photographer as the Getty Images photos earlier in the entry. But larger. 😉
Hugo doesn’t seem to have given any interviews or spoken at the event; Halle Berry did a few Russian TV interviews (all overdubbed… grrr!) and the directors handled press questions at the premiere itself. But Hugo obviously interacted with some fans and the media, and seemed to be enjoying himself.
