Fan Activities for new Wolverine movie "Logan", happening at Shaw Lido!

The latest X-Men movie "Logan" will premiere on local theatres on 2 March 2017. Lead actor Hugh Jackman has mentioned that this will be the last time he will be performing as the powerful mutant Wolverine, with the trademark adamantium claws.

The Aussie actor has played the role of Wolverine 9 times in the various X-Men movies. More amazingly, Hugh Jackman, who is in his late 40s, have managed to look even more ripped as Wolverine in the recent films than his very first appearance in 2000!

To celebrate the movie's launch in Red Dot Island, Shaw Theatres IMAX® and Twentieth Century Fox have planned some special fan activities. For starters, if you cannot wait for the official premiere date of "Logan", you can already book for a special preview screening at Shaw IMAX theatres on 1 March, 8 PM at SGD 20 per ticket. Each attendee will receive a special "Logan" mini poster! (Do note that the movie has been rated M18.)

Over at Shaw Lido, there will be a photo exhibition called featuring behind-the-scenes  from the movie. To pay tribute to the wonderful Hugh Jackman, fans can also leave notes on a message wall.

STGCC 2014: A Much-Needed Catch-up with Guest, Comic Artist Harvey Tolibao!


After a two-year hiatus from attending STGCC, Filipino comic artist Harvey Tolibao will be back on the island this year, with a few homies from the HMT Studios.

Harvey used to visit the Red Dot Island from time to time for book store appearances. The animated and talkative artist would usually spend time chatting and drawing (not just quick sketching, mind you!) insanely detailed art for fans that would always bring huge smiles on their faces. He was one of those people who gave a lot of heart together with a piece of his art, no matter where he was or how much time he had. When he was a guest at STGCC 2010 and 2011, Harvey would be the last guest to close his booth and leave the showfloor!

During his absence from the island's local comics scene, Harvey has kept himself very busy back in the Philippines. He started HMT Studios in 2011, got married and has a lively two-year-old son. He has also worked on several projects, like Marvel's "Silver Surfer" series and DC's "New Guardians" Green Lantern as well as with Zenescope and Valiant. Currently, he is drawing a short arc of "X-Men" Vol. 4 for Marvel, starting from issue #18 to #22. The female-centric story written by Marc Guggenheim has received mostly positive reviews so far.

The Glam Bloggers' Alliance took the chance to catch up with Harvey about what else he has been up to and his aspirations for the future:

Dallas Comic-Con 2014: Record-Breaking Attendance and Super-Long Lines!

Last month, Red Dot Diva's fellow geeky acquaintance from Texas, Natasha S. Hoover, attended a comic convention that was held at her own backyard. Well, almost!

The Dallas Comic-Con (DCC) - which has been running for about the last 12 years - has recently changed ownership and this year, the event moved to a larger location from Irving Convention Centre to the Dallas Convention Centre.

In line with what's happening at comic conventions around the globe in the last few years, there was a huge increase in attendance numbers for the event which ran from May 16 to 18, 2014. Approximately 45,000 people were said to have attended DCC this year.

Here's Natasha's report for the geeky camaraderie that happened at the convention. It is too bad she did not bring a fancy camera, so all but two of the photos used in the article belong to DCC.

"X-Men: Days of Future Past" Press Conference in Singapore - Short and Snikt!-ed

As the "X-Men: Days of Future Past" press conference wrapped up at Ritz Carlton's Millenia Pavilion, Red Dot Diva was still not sure if she had just been unwillingly whipped forward in time via some mutant power.

The entire proceedings with visiting X-Men actors Hugh Jackman, Peter Dinklage and Fan BingBing, lasted merely 12 minutes tops. It was as if The Wolverine came in, released his claws and went on a rampagey-Snikt! on the scheduled programme.

Perhaps the press conference was cut short because the talent were tired of boring repetitive questions from journalists about the movie, or maybe the organizers felt that the region's media would have enough time with the cast during their roundtables after the conference (where unknown bloggers like Red Dot Diva would not have been invited for anyway).

"X-Men: Days of Future Past" - Singapore Fans Go Wild At The Blue Carpet Event

May 14 was a momentous day for local pop-culture fans. That was the evening when "X-Men: Days of Future Past" actors - Hugh Jackman, Peter Dinklage and Fan BingBing - descended onto the shopping belt of Orchard Road, Singapore to celebrate the South-East Asian premiere of the movie.

It has been awhile since a grand gala premiere was being held here. At lunch time, Red Dot Diva spotted several fans already staking out their choice spots along the barricades on the ground floor outside of Shaw House. Many of the familiar geeks were also out in full force that evening. Each with their own signs and personal items in hope of getting them autographed by the actors as they stroll down the very Mystique-blue carpet.

SANA Unleashes A Special Charity Screening for "X-Men: Days of Future Past"


It is time to pick a side, and join in the battle against drugs by contributing to a special charity screening of "X-Men: Days of Future Past"!

The screening is organized by the Singapore Anti-Narcotics Association (SANA), in conjunction with Cathay Cineplexes. SANA is a local-based non-profit organization set up with an aim to spread the word against narcotics and to assist with the rehabilitation of drug addicts.

From what Red Dot Diva learned, the theatre is a small on, so available seats will be given on a first-come, first-served basis.
