The film’s stars appropriately arrived by Mercedes-Benz: not only did the haute auto brand sponsor the premiere, but its G63 AMG 6×6 also plays a prominent role in the franchise’s third installment.

The Jurassic-themed party was designed with a jungle theme. A simualted waterfall greeted guests upon arrival as they strode through “foliage” to get to the “roughage”–tabeles laden with DIY taco and slider bars. Dinosaur heads popped out of open bars, and both Mercedes-Benz and Samsung set up interactive stations for dinosaur-loving guests.

Moments like this truly only happen in Hollywood. Magic.
