The 61st Cannes Film Festival kicked off Wednesday morning as Jack Black showed off his martial art skills for Kung Fu Panda.
Black arrived at the Carlton hotel pier by boat, then walked a gauntlet of 40 oversized pandas modeled after characters in the animated film, which costars Angelina Jolie. (The stunt rivaled last year's airborne arrival of Jerry Seinfeld dressed as bee.)
"It's a hard choice to decide who had the crazier stunt between me and Jerry," Black, 39, tells PEOPLE. "But I can't believe he had to come down from the top of the hotel – twice."
In fact, Black's "pandemonium" on the pier upstaged the official festival opening flick, Blindness, which stars Julianne Moore, Gael Garcia Bernal and Mark Ruffalo.

Miley Cyrus had slime on her mind Saturday at Nickelodeon's 2008 annual Kids Choice Awards.
The teen superstar begged not to get showered with the green stuff while she accepted the award for Favorite Female Singer (she also won for Favorite TV Actress). "I don't want to get slimed but I am glad to be here," she told the screaming crowd.
Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull star Harrison Ford, who presented the award for Favorite Voice for an Animated Movie, got the green stuff dumped on him instead, adding his name to the list of slimmed celebrities, which includes Justin Timberlake, Nicole Kidman, Pink and Johnny Depp.
Later in the night, Cyrus was back on stage to rock the house with her tune, "G.N.O. - Girl's Night Out."

Forget the Big Buzz. It's all about the Big Brrr this year at the 27th annual Sundance Film Festival, which kicked off in snow-covered Park City, Utah, Thursday.
Thanks to a cold snap, the temperature is below zero at night and barely edges into the teens during the day. Paris Hilton and other Hollywood celebrities planning to make the scene at Sundance should pack their long underwear.
Out of 207 films being shown this year, here's a quick look at five that are generating must-see buzz:
In Bruges: The festival's opener is a comedy about two Irish hit men (Colin Farrell and Brendan Gleeson) stuck in Bruges, a quaint medieval town in Belgium, after an assignment goes wrong. (Opens in theaters Feb. 8.)

Jack Black and wife Tanya Haden are adding another baby to their family, the actor said Saturday.
"Yes, she's expecting," Black told reporters at the Be Kind Rewind press day at the Four Seasons Hotel in Beverly Hills. He declined to name a due date.
The couple, who eloped in March 2006, are already parents to a 1½-year-old boy.
So far, Black says he's taken on parenting with a "day-by-day" strategy. "I've been told that two children is three times as hard as one child," he joked, "but then strangely three children is easier than one."

We asked Van Helsing star Hugh Jackman – who is nominated for a Tony for his acclaimed Broadway turn in The Boy from Oz – about his first time ... seeing a musical, that is. "I think it was Cats," he told us. "I loved it. I was 11 when my father took me and I thought it was great – these cats jumping out behind me. It also scared the hell out of me." Yeah, us too. But wait, there's more: "My father also took me to La Cage aux Folles, which kind of surprised me because my father was a religious man," Jackman said. "So we get there and my brother and I are watching and (I) say, 'I think Dad's made a mistake.' "
