Fulfilling their festive overseas promotional duties, the stars of “Madagascar 3: Europe’s Most Wanted” took over the spotlight at the 65th annual Cannes Film Festival in southern France on Friday (May 18).

After attending a photocall to begin the day, the lovely Jessica Chastainhit the red carpet premiere in a Giorgio Armani frock while co-star Jada Pinkett Smith brightened up the scene in a orange Atelier Versace dress.

With male co-stars David Schwimmer, Martin Short, Chris Rock, and Ben Stiller all looking dapper in men’s dresswear, the Cannes screening also drew out celebrity spectators including Marchesa clad actress Naomi Watts and a gorgeous in Gucci Salma Hayek (with husband Francois-Henri Pinault).

Slated to hit theaters in the States on June 8th, “Madagascar 3: Europe’s Most Wanted” finds Alex, Marty, Gloria and Melman still fighting to get home to their beloved Big Apple – as their journey takes them through Europe, where they find the perfect cover: a traveling circus, which they reinvent – Madagascar style.”
