There are two types of Jack Black movie premieres: Jack Black movie premieres where he’s the biggest star there, and those where he’s not. Oh sure, he clowns around either way, but when he’s the top dog, that’s when we really get to see the man wild out. So with Brad Pitt & Angelina Jolie skipping today’s Kung Fu Panda 2 premiere at the Ziegfeld Theatre in NY, the only person who could compete with Jack for star power was Lucy Liu and uh…yeah, it was Jack’s big moment. Check out the gallery for a taste of the poses and faces JB dropped on his panda people in the Big Apple.

Wow, maybe family is the most important thing for Brad Pitt…that or he’s afraid of Angelina Jolie‘s sex grotto. Terrence Malick‘s Tree Of Life won the Golden Palm, Cannes’ highest honor, this weekend, but Pitt—who produced and starred in the film—wasn’t around to soak in the praise. No, the two-time Academy Award nominee had jetted back to Hollywood to stand beside his wife at the Kung Fu Panda 2 premiere in khakis and a matching tan shirt, leaving non-famous producers Bill Pohlad and Dede Gardner to accept the award for the reclusive Malick and ridiculous Pitt. It looks like Brad took Malick’s message of love and family to heart and knew his time was best spent with people dressed like pandas, and friends like Jack Black and Seth Rogen, rather than the cineastes of Europe. Plus, again, the sex grotto.
Check out the gallery to see photos of Lucy Liu, Jean-Claude Van Damme, Marcia Gay Harden and other stars who probably would have rather been at Cannes. But not Brad!
