What do Chris Hemsworth (Thor), Isaac Hempstead Wright (Bran Stark) and zombies have in common? They will all be in Singapore, from April 2-4. So repeat after me: This is NOT the weekend to Netflix and chill. The geek gods may never bless us with such bountiful blessings again.
Clear your schedules and get ready to meet them. Here’s where you should go.
1Meet Chris Hemsworth, Charlize Theron & Jessica Chastain
Come April 3, Chris Hemsworth a.k.a. Thor, Charlize Theron a.k.a. Furiosa and Jessica Chastain will walk down the red carpet at Universal Studios Singapore for the Asian premiere of The Huntsman: Winter’s War. Stars of this calibre don’t drop by our ‘hood all that often, so this event is a must attend.
The red carpet event is open to all guests of the park, so this does mean that its not free (boo!). But as a special perk: The first 2,000 fans who purchase the Day Pass on-site that day will receive a movie poster.
The red carpet event will be followed by the gala movie premiere at the Pantages Hollywood Theater. Appropriately, the theatre will be turned into an ice palace for the day. Look out for our coverage as Geek Crusade goes to the red carpet and the premiere!
The Huntsman: Winter’s War (Asian premiere)
Date: April 3 | Time: 5pm | Venue: Universal Studios Singapore
2Meet Bran Stark
Wright, who plays Bran Stark on Game of Thrones, will be appearing at ION Orchard on April 2 as part of the shopping mall’s The Game of Thrones Experience: Worlds of Westeros. This includes the chance to play around with an Oculus Rift-powered virtual reality. If you ever wanted to sit on the Iron Throne or get a picture with (CGI) Drogon, this is your chance. And Opinionated Geek JM Wong will also be there to geek out with the rest of you!
The Game of Thrones Experience: Worlds of Westeros
Date: April 2 | Time: 3pm | Venue: ION Orchard B4
3Meet Zombies and Fear the Walking Dead
To mark the season two premiere of Fear The Walking Dead – a spinoff of The Walking Dead – AMC Asia is going to unleash a zombie flash mob in Orchard and the Central Business District from Apr 1 – 3. #myzombieapocalypse
Don’t be afraid! Anyone who spots the undead and takes pictures with them will get a syringe pen. There are Fear The Walking Dead survival bags up for grabs too. (We like the thought that went into this because backpacks rock in an apocalypse. #freehands=canfightzombies)
In a fitting continuation of the first season, the infected will even be traveling in a truck made to look like the Abigail, the yacht that Travis and co escaped to at the end of season 1.
Fear the Walking Dead – Zombie flash mob
Date: April 1-3 | Time: see schedule | Venue:Orchard and the Central Business District.
We at Geek Crusade are specialists at star stalking by now – just look at how we tracked down Nicholas Hoult and Kristen Stewart in Singapore. Keep watching this space as we bring you more updates!
Oh, and did we mention that Captain America, Bucky and Falcon will be in Singapore on Apr 21?
