PHOTOS FROM THE PREMIER PARTY:
Downey drove his sports car right onto the red carpet.
Stellan Skarsgard attended with son Alexander Skarsgard
(The four members of the band Soundgarden did strike a pose. Soundgarden singer and guitarist Chris Cornell was also pictured alone.)
Here’s Chris Hemsworth. If you look very carefully, you can see that he’s got a little ponytail.

Some of the ladies wore glow-in-the dark clothes and accessories
Some wore shoes that looked way scary and painful – like torture devices.
(I wonder if they all have podiatrists on call?)
The photographers have such powerful lenses that you can see that Scarlett Johansson is not wearing any polish on her toenails and that one toe is callused, presumably from the straps of her torturous shoes. You can also see a tiny tattoo on her ankle.
Each shoes has five teeny, tiny buckles. Does she have an assistant to help with that? Hope so. (Go to a salsa or tango club and you’ll see women helping their friends with their teeny, tiny buckles. It’s almost impossible to handle them by yourself.)
Johansson had weird . . . thingies . . .on the hips of her dress. Inspired by super-hero costumes, perhaps. Does it feel funny to pose for the cameras while so many people (non-photographers ) are watching you do it? Guess she used to it by now. (Photo by Jason Merritt/Getty Images)
Let’s have a closer look at one of those thingies.
Hmmmmm. . . It’s made out of some kind of shiny metal because it is reflecting her skin and the red velvet ropes. (Photo by Jason Merritt/Getty Images)
WE ARE SO EXCITED FOR THIS EPIC MOVIE. OPENING ON MAY 4TH AT ALL DRIVE-IN LOCATIONS:
