Premiere of Robin Williams doc brings comics together. A Hollywood premiere of new HBO doc "Robin Williams: Come Inside My Mind" was a bittersweet reunion for the late comic's friends at LA's famed TCL Chinese Theatre. Venerable stand-ups Billy Crystal and David Steinberg hosted the event, where guests included Rosanna Arquette, Bonnie Hunt, Kevin Nealon, Brad Garrett, Eddie Griffin, Bob Saget, Ray Romano, Pauly Shore, George Schlatter and Paula Poundstone. A guest told us that, at a Hollywood Roosevelt reception after, "Robin's favorite desserts were served -- Key lime pie and chocolate macaroons. Tables were adorned with mini toy soldiers, a Robin favorite." (PageSix)

Selena Gomez Is All Smiles Hotel Transylvania 3 Premiere -- Her First in Over 2 Years. Ever since her secret kidney transplant last summer, Selena Gomez has become a master of laying low -- but today she was all about the fun and sun of summer, attending the daytime premiere of Hotel Transylvania 3: Summer Vacation in Los Angeles on Saturday. The fun-filled premiere marks her first movie premiere in two and a half years. The last film red carpet she did was for The Fundamentals of Caring premiere at the Sundance Film Festival in January 2016. She may be an A-lister and a jet-setter but this is only the fourth major event that the popstar/actress has attended in 2018. For the day's event, Selena selected a china-patterned Oscar de la Renta crop top and skirt. She accessorized with a $12,000 Tiffany & Co. platinum diamond hoop earrings and a $9,500 Tiffany & Co. diamond cross necklace, which she's been wearing since the Met Gala last month. The only other events the "Wolves" singer has turned up for this year is the Met Gala, WE Day California and Coach's Fall 2018 runway show. At the event, she told entertainment journalist Marc Malkin it would be "so soon" before fans got to hear some new music. Hotel Transylvania 3: Summer Vacation takes a bite out of theaters on July 13. (Eonline)

Master P thinks a couple of young guys who are huge online will be mainstream stars in no time ... and his upcoming movie's going to be the catalyst. We broke the story in December -- P was planning to talent for the sequel to his 1998 movie, "I Got the Hook-Up," and he tells us he's stayed true to his word ... by signing social media stars Fatboy and Piola. P says Hollywood's failed to recognize the power of social media and its big personalities and believes by casting Fatboy and Piola -- who have nearly 7 million followers on Instagram combined -- he's connecting with an untapped audience. To put it bluntly, Master P tells us ... "What we're doing with 'I Got the Hook-Up 2' is genius." He's got high hopes for his new actors too ... telling us they're dynamic, natural talents with amazing chemistry because they're both great friends. P says he's going to add them to the mix with established actors in his sequel and let the sparks fly ... and has no doubt it will work. We're told filming for 'Hook-Up 2' will begin later this year . . . so get ready for Hollywood's next comedy tag team at a theater near you soon. (TMZ)

Jack Dylan Grazer -- otherwise known as Eddie of the Losers' Club in the "It" movie -- has a good shot at making some scary money ... in an upcoming superhero franchise. According to Jack's contract -- obtained by TMZ -- he's going to bank at least $150k for his role as Freddy Freeman in the 2019 DC Comics film "Shazam!" ... starring Zachary Levi. It gets better -- he can make up to $200k more in box office bonuses ... and gets a cut of the movie's merchandise cash. But get this -- if there's a "Shazam!" sequel, Grazer's pay more than doubles to $400,000 with up to $300k in bonuses ... and his salary will DOUBLE for every additional installment of the film franchise after that. Jack's only 14, so there's a good chance he could be swimming in millions by the time he's old enough to vote ... as long as "Shazam!" is a bit more successful than "Kazaam." (TMZ)
