Kung-fu kicks offs Cannes carnival
The BBC says the School Of Rock and Nacho Libre star also performed some kicks and twirls for the press at the screening of his latest movie, animated feature Kung Fu Panda.
His antics followed the screening of the event's opening film, bleak drama Blindness, which stars Julianne Moore, Mark Ruffo and Danny Glover.
The film, directed by City Of God's Fernando Meirelles, tells the story of an apocalyptic epidemic that robs its victims of their vision.
It is one of 22 films in competition for the festival's prestigious Palme d'Or award, alongside Clint Eastwood's Changeling and the directorial debut of Being John Malkovich and Adaptation writer Charlie Kaufman, Synecdoche New York.
Long-awaited blockbuster Indiana Jones And The Kingdom Of The Crystal Skull will also get its world premiere at Cannes, although it is not in competition.
The Cannes Film Festival runs until May 25th.
