Disney held a special red-carpet event at Hollywood’s El Capitan Theatre this week to celebrate the premiere of 20th Century Studios’ all-new comedy “White Men Can’t Jump.”   The modern remix of the 1992 film that celebrates the streetball hustling culture of Los Angeles. Sinqua Walls stars as Kamal, once a promising player who derailed his future in the sport, and multi-platinum rap superstar Jack Harlow makes his movie debut as Jeremy, a former star of the game whose injuries stalled his own career. Juggling tenuous relationships, financial pressures and serious internal struggles, the two ballers—opposites who are seemingly miles apart—find they might have more in common than they imagined possible.

On hand for the event from the film were Sinqua Walls, Jack Harlow, Teyana Taylor, Laura Harrier, Myles Bullock, Anthony Hamilton Jr., Slink Johnson, J. Alphonse Nicholson, Arturo Castro, Calmatic (directed by/EP), Doug Hall (screenplay by/story by), Paul Hall (produced by), Ryan Kalil (EP), Noah Weinstein (EP), E. Brian Dobbins (EP) and James Powers (EP), in addition to a host of special guests.
