Darkness fell opposite the land — and then the film started.
Papa Joe Jackson and Jackie Jackson, the eldest of the Jackson 5, showed up for Tuesday’s star-studded U.S. premiere of “Thriller 3D” at the Grauman’s Chinese Theatre in Hollywood.
“I am a big Michael Jackson fan,” Nick Cannon, the night’s emcee, told the VIP crowd, which enclosed executive John Landis and the re-imagined 1983 music video’s star — thespian Ola Ray.
“The throng went furious when they saw Ola,” pronounced one moviegoer. “She looks gorgeous. That scream she did is iconic.”
Ray, 57, starred alongside the King of Pop in the strange 14-minute prolonged “Thriller” video that perpetually changed the way the universe watched music. In 2009, she wound up suing Jackson for income due for her work. The thespian died a brief time later, and his estate reportedly reached an agreement with Ray.
Michael’s profession John Branca and his biographer Janis DaSilva were also in the residence for the 3-dimensional screening.
Fans enjoyed themed cocktails like “Blood On The Dance Floor,” “Dangerous” and “Dirty Diana” at the after-party, which took place at Hollywood Highlands Centre.
