GOSSIP NEWS >> Owen Wilson & Nicole Scherzinger: "Cars 2" Premiere!

Revving up the promotional efforts as his latest picture's release date quickly approaches, Owen Wilson was front and center at the premiere of Walt Disney Pictures' "Cars 2" in Hollywood on Saturday evening (June 18).

Held at the El Capitan Theatre, the 42-year-old actor worked the red carpet alongside fellow attendees such as the lovely Nicole Scherzinger and her Formula 1 race car driver beau Lewis Hamilton.

Also joining in on the red carpet celebration were stars including singers Christina Milian and Sheryl Crow, as well as young actresses Hailee Steinfeld and Sarah Hyland.

Sure to be quite the family-friendly adventure, "Cars 2" finds "star race car Lightning McQueen and his pal Mater heading overseas to compete in the World Grand Prix race. But the road to the championship becomes rocky as Mater gets caught up in an intriguing adventure of his own: international espionage."

The John Lasseter and Brad Lewis directed film also features the voices of Michael Caine, Emily Mortimer and John Turturro while set to race into theaters this Friday, June 24th.
