Shazam: Fury of the Gods: Zachary Levi, Helen Mirren, Jack Dylan Grazer Brave the Water in Los Angeles Premiere

Los Angeles Premiere Makes Splash With Wet Red Carpet

Zachary Levi, Helen Mirren, Jack Dylan Grazer and stars of the DC sequel.


Shazam! Fury of the Gods made splash at the Westwood Theater in Los Angeles on Tuesday.

Stars of the DC sequel Zachary Levi, Helen Mirren, Lucy Liu, Rachel Zegler, Adam Brody, Ross Butler braved water on the red carpet to celebrate the premiere of their film.

The flooding was so bad, workers had to sweep water off of the carpet throughout the evening.

The wet carpet comes on the heels of several rainy premieres in L.A. following the storms that have been hitting the major city and other parts of California over the last few months. Mike Wofford, a senior meteorologist for the Weather Service office in L.A., said the region has already received twice the average amount of cumulative rainfall for this point in the year.

Shazam! Fury of the Gods one was simply too big for an indoor venue to accommodate; and the amount of rain near the Westwood Theater made it impossible to keep water out of the venue, despite it being tented for the premiere.

Levi exclaimed “There’s a pool!” while striking silly poses.

Jack Dylan Grazer, who plays young Freddy Freeman, also took playful approach to the rainy carpet, kicking it toward the cameras.

The sequel, one of few titles James Gunn and Peter Safran kept after taking over DC, features time jump, It follows Billy Batson and his fellow foster kids as they continue to learn how to balance being teenagers and taking on their superhero alter egos.

The kids’ journeys of self-discovery are cut short when the Daughters of Atlas arrive on Earth and cause mayhem.

Mirren’s Hespera, Liu’s Calypso and Zegler’s Antaeus make up the vengeful trio of ancient goddesses.

Meagan Good, Grace Currey, Djimon Hounso and D.J. Cotrona also star in the film

Shazam! Fury of the Gods hits theaters March 17.
