John Travolta is set to star alongside legendary actor Robert De Niro for the very first time in his career when their movie "Killing Season" hits theaters on July 12.  With two big names such as De Niro and Travolta, you would think everyone would be talking about them at the movie's premiere. However, it turns out everyone wanted to discuss Travolta's 13-year-old daughter Ella Bleu, who showed up to the movie's Thursday night premiere in New York.

As The Daily Mail reports, the two stayed side by side for most of the night at the Sunshine Landmark Theater in New York. A number of other stars showed up to the movie's premiere, including James Lipton, model Keenyah Hill, Aleksa Palladina and Eric West.

According to IMDB, "Killing Season" is about, "Two veterans of the Bosnian War -- one American, one Serbian -- find their unlikely friendship turn tense with one of them reveals their true intentions."

Travolta recently got some bad news; however, with the passing of his friend James Gandolfini. Travolta spoke on "Good Morning America" about his special friendship with Gandolfini. The two worked together on various movies, including "Get Shorty." "My goal is to make sure that his family is OK," Travolta told GMA. "His little boy, I watched him grow up, and his brand new little girl. We'll just make sure they're taken care of. That's the whole idea."

Travolta explained that Gandolfini was there for him when his he went through the tragedy of son Jett dying unexpectedly in 2009. "James went out of his way to come to Florida and he would not leave Florida until I was OK, or he felt that I would be fine," Travolta said. "After a week I said, 'Jim you can really, you can, you know, we'll be fine. I've got a lot of support here.' But the idea that in our profession someone would go out of their way and not want to leave you until he felt you were OK, that's the kind of soul that James Gandolfini was."
