Vanessa Hudgens and her boyfriend, Austin Butler, looked totally in love at the premiere of the actor's new film, The Dead Don't Die.

They walked the red carpet outside the Museum of Modern Art in New York City on Monday, smiling sweetly at one another while the cameras clicked away. 

The pair stunned in matching dark ensembles, with Hudgens in a short-sleeved, embroidered black dress -- the only color coming from her emerald Ruchi New York earrings -- while Butler rocked a traditional tux, sans tie.

Hudgens, 30, came out to support her boyfriend of eight years as he celebrated his new movie. Speaking with ET on the red carpet, Butler marveled at the opportunity to work with acclaimed art house filmmaker Jim Jarmusch on the zombie comedy, which includes a talented cast of actors like Bill Murray, Adam Driver, Chloë Sevigny, Steve Buscemi, Tilda Swinton, Selena Gomez, Danny Glover, Rosie Perez, Iggy Pop, Carole Kane, and Tom Waits, to name a few.

"Oh man, it was a dream come true," Butler shared. "I've been such a fan of Jim's since I was a child, so just getting to be around him, and be around Bill and Adam and everybody, it was just really special."

The 27-year-old actor also appears in the hotly anticipated period piece Once Upon a Time In Hollywood, directed by Quentin Tarantino and starring Brad Pitt and Leonardo DiCaprio, in which he plays the notorious Manson Family killer, Tex Watson.

Butler had nothing but praise for the experience of shooting the massive project, saying the best part was "just getting to be around Quentin Tarantino and Leo and Brad. They're all my heroes."

In fact, the California native revealed that he got one of his favorite pieces of advice from Pitt while they were filming together, and he's taken it to heart. "One thing Brad said was to play the long game," Butler recalled. "I love that, the idea of choosing quantity over quality."

The Dead Don't Die lumbers into theaters June 14, while Once Upon a Time in Hollywood hits big screens nationwide on July 26.
