The dinosaurs of “Jurassic World” took over Hollywood on Tuesday night for the L.A. premiere of the blockbuster that stomps into theaters on Friday.
And along with them came the stars of the highly anticipated fourth entry in the “Jurassic Park” franchise.
Leading man Chris Pratt was joined by his actress wife Anna Faris, who patiently waited while he signed autographs for the throngs of fans on Hollywood Boulevard outside the Dolby Theatre.
Wearing a shimmering Rubin Singer’s dark silver glass embroidered cocktail dress, the “Scary Movie” actress at least got a kiss for her trouble providing a cute photo op on the red carpet.
Bryce Dallas Howard, who plays a theme park executive in Universal’s prehistoric epic, was as dramatic as a T-Rex in a floor-length navy backless gown and deep red lips.
Co-star Vincent D’Onofrio didn’t have any velociraptors to train at the premiere, but he did have a pack of reporters to face.
Also in attendance at the glamorous event were Sofia Vergara with Joe Manganiello, director Colin Trevorrow, actress Angie Harmon, Greer Grammer and Olympic skier Lindsey Vonn.
A world away from Margaritaville, singer Jimmy Buffett gave the premiere some island-themed entertainment when he performed at the post-party.
Set 22 years after the events of “Jurassic Park” (which was released in 1993), Isla Nublar now features a fully functioning dinosaur theme park, Jurassic World, as originally envisioned by John Hammond. After 10 years of operation and visitor rates declining, in order to fulfill a corporate mandate, a new attraction is created to re-spark visitor’s interest, which backfires horribly.
