Alien chic hits H’w’d at ‘Mars’ preem bash

The crowds on Hollywood Boulevard looked only slightly stranger than usual as they left Mann’s Chinese Theater on Thursday night after the premiere of Warner Bros.’ “Mars Attacks” and headed for the party across the street at Colonnade. Reveling in the ’50s-era extraterrestrial decor was the film’s helmer, Tim Burton, together with his otherworldly significant other Lisa Marie, one of the film crowd’s favorite Martians.

The lobby reverberated with the spooky strains of a theremin player while diminutive Martians glad-handed the film’s stars, including Jack Nicholson, Glenn Close, Natalie Portman, Martin Short, Jim Brown, Christina Applegate and Paul Winfield.

Absorbing food by Along Came Mary and electric blue martinis were John Singleton, Stephen Dorf, Martin Landau, Matt Le Blanc, Rob Schneider, Sharon Stone, Johnny Ramone, and Catherine O’Hara with set designer-hubby Bo Welch.

Warner co-chairmen and co-CEOs Bob Daly and Terry Semel materialized, along with studio presidents Bill Gerber and Lorenzo di Bonaventura, as well as Tom Lassally, production exec VP, among other visitors from distant Burbank.
