Idris Elba and Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson were front-and-center for the world premiere of their Fast & Furious spin-off, Hobbs & Shaw. Get into their red carpet flicks inside...

Saturday night's world premiere of Fast & Furious Presents: Hobbs & Shaw was LIT...literally!

Apparently, a bottle of water spilled over on an electrical outlet and sparks started flying, a source told Deadline. The incident went down just before 8pm PST inside the Dolby Theater about 25 minutes after the film - which stars Idris Elba & Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson - started. When people saw sparks coming from the orchestra section, they jumped up and began evacuating, fearing the worst.

Thankfully, it wasn't serious and no one was hurt. Once the water and open outlet were discovered, guests were invited back inside.

Before sparks started flying...

Newlywed Idris Elba brought his wife Sabrina Dhowre Elba and his 17-year-old daughter Isan Elba as his dates for his action thriller's premiere.

Mrs. Elba shined when she pulled up on the carpet in a semi-sheer metallic Alberta Ferretti dress with sequin. Meanwhile, the British hottie rocked a charcoal grey Tom Ford suit with a black shirt and tie and his flawless daughter posed it up in a black-and-white mini dress.

Elba plays a cyber-genetically enhanced anarchist named Brixton, who seeks to gain control of a world-threatening bio-weapon. His world takeover causes an unlikely duo - Luke Hobbs (The Rock) and Deckard Shaw (Jason Statham) - to join forces to take him down.

Also, Elba wrote, produced, and recorded an original song inspired by his villainous character, which is included in a scene in the film. Nice! What can't he do?

The Rock was all dapper while snapping it up alongside his Hobbs & Shaw co-stars Eiza Gonzalez and Eliana Sua:

"The Talk" co-host/rapper Eve - who just dropped a new song after a long music hiatus - served up fierce feline vibes on the carpet. Rawr!
