UCSB Hosts ‘Your Highness’ World Premiere (NSFW)

The University of California at Santa Barbara won the collegiate contest to hold the world premiere of Your Highness, which was held on Friday. Stars Danny McBride, James Franco, Justin Theroux and director David Gordon Green made an appearance in front of thousands of UCSB students. The Minotaur also made an appearance. The school’s Storke Plaza was filled to capacity as the stars posed for photographs (and James Franco created a meta moment by snapping photos of fans snapping his). As a former UCSB alumni, I’m jealous we never had a big event like this.

After the event in Storke Plaza, a smaller number of lucky winners were able to see the film at the Pollock Theatre. Green noted, “This is kind of like a dirty kid’s movie in a way.” McBride followed Green’s comment by saying, “We were hoping you guys would win, because we wanted to show the movie here!”

Your Highness opens on April 8.
