AceShowbiz - "Fast & Furious Presents: Hobbs & Shaw" cast invaded Hollywood for its premiere on Sunday, July 14. Led by Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson, they attracted a bunch of crowds who gathered in front of the Dolby Theatre in Los Angeles hoping to catch a glimpse of their favorite actors.
Not disappointing his fans, Johnson put on quite a show as he arrived in style in a custom truck. He was dressed semi-casually, but properly for the event, wearing a maroon suit on top of a white shirt. Besides posing with his cast members, the 47-year-old hunk was joined by his mother Ata, who shone in a glimmering blue dress as she supported her son at the special screening.
Johnson's co-star Jason Statham also drove a fancy orange car to the premiere. He looked sharp in an all-black number, while bringing along his fiancee Rosie Huntington-Whiteley. The model/actress stunned in a white dress with narrow panels that stretched from under her arm down to her thigh, where the dress split to reveal her toned leg.
Vanessa Kirby, who stars as Shaw's (Statham) sister, opted for a classic look in a black asymmetrical dress which perfectly hugged her slim figure. She added a red lipstick for a fierce look while she kept it simple with straight hairstyle and minimal accessory.
Eiza Gonzalez, who joins the cast in another new role, also went with black as she wowed in a chic halterneck dress with intricate embroidery across the mid-section of the velvet garment. She also sported paisley inking on her feet.
Idris Elba turned the premiere into a family event as he brought wife Sabrina Dhowre and his daughter Isan. Sabrina looked gorgeous in a silver dress, matching the hue of her husband's gray suit. Isan, meanwhile, wore a short black dress with long sleeves and white stripes.
The star sightings aside, the premiere was almost marred by fire scare later that night. The audience had gathered inside the theater when electrical sparks flew into the audience. People stood up from their seats after seeing the smoke, though no one reportedly left the building.
An attendee recalled the sparks were heard as a series of loud pops, followed by a flash of light that was "the size of a fist." The witness went on recounting, "Sparks started coming from the floor in the center of the orchestra. They've stopped the movie. Security was called to look at it as the audience members sitting in that section quickly moved from their seats."
The movie was stopped and the lights came on, before the cause of the incident was identified. The electrical sparks occurred as the result of a soda drink spilling on an electrical socket on the floor. Director David Leitch addressed the crowd before the movie resumed. "Alright guys, that was weird," he said. "It was an accident," assuring that everything was being cleaned up.
Dwayne Johnson also took the stage after the incident. "This was not one of the surprises," he joked. He referred to a speech he made at the beginning of the premiere, when he told the audience to stay until the end of the film for a "surprise." He also claimed that he "stayed" inside the theater despite the momentary chaos.
