The festivities, taking place on the Universal backlot, will include a screening of “Jurassic World Dominion” following a Q&A with the film’s director Colin Trevorrow and stars Bryce Dallas Howard, DeWanda Wise, Jeff Goldblum and Mamoudou Athie and writer Emily Carmichael.
“Jurassic” producers Frank Marshall and Kathleen Kennedy are also expected to attend as is Universal boss Donna Langley.
Wyclef Jean is set to perform during the after party.
“I’m so grateful that we’re able to bring this event back for a second year in support of CTAOP and it’s going to be a really fun night,” Theron tells me. “We have a performance by Wyclef Jean and ‘Jurassic World Dominion’ — what’s better than drinking, dancing and dinosaurs? I’m honored that we’re all able to come together, so we can continue our work for youth in Africa.”
The menu will be curated by chefs Andrew Zimmern and Melissa King and is inspired by international street food.
CTAOP’s mission is to support the health, education and safety of young people in Africa.
Last year’s inaugural Block Party featured a screening of “F9: The Fast Saga.”
