Join the Batmania at the LEGO Batman Movie Activity Area & Fan Event at ION Orchard!

This is the Batman Movie you have all been waiting for!

The awesomely successful "The Lego Movie" was the film that introduced us to the egoistical but hilarious "I'm Batman-I Only Dress In Black"-LEGO Batman (Will Arnett). Since his superhero personality is too Huge to remain in just one movie, the Bat is BACK. This time, he will be calling all the shots (or he thinks he will be) in "The LEGO Batman Movie", by going up against The Joker (Zach Galifianakis) in order to save Gotham City.

Not quite used to working with a team, Batman also faces challenges battling the band of villains together with orphan Dick Grayson aka Robin (Michael Cera), Barbara Gordon aka Batgirl (Rosario Dawson) and the ever loyal and classy butler, Alfred (Ralph Fiennes).

Directed by Chris McKay, and produced by Dan Lin, Phil Lord, Christopher Miller, and Roy Lee, "The LEGO Batman Movie" premieres in Red Dot Island theatres on 9 February 2017!

For the last couple of months, Team Batman ,i.e. LEGO Batman himself, Robin and Batgirl, has been meeting their fans at shopping malls and cinemas around the island. Being hardcore fans of #TeamRichGuys, Red Dot Diva and geek-girl pal Jas managed to catch the trio at Cathay Cineleisure the week before Chinese New Year!

Star Wars: The Force Awakens - Singapore Edition

*CHEWIE ROAR* YEAHHHH!

Red Dot Diva has already seen the "Star Wars: The Force Awakens" twice - once in 3D and once in IMAX. Both versions were awesome!

If you are a long time Star Wars fan, you will love this movie and have lots of feelz. If you are a new fan, it would make you more curious about the Star Wars mythology and get you started on a thrilling adventure of a lifetime.

Out of respect of her Star Wars-loving pals and readers, The Diva non-spoiler-free movie review will be posted next week.

Meanwhile, thanks to Livan Goh, Red Dot Island Star Wars fans would dream of the day this version of the film come to fruition.

The Force is certainly Strong in This One.

A Fan's Encounter: Meeting "Superman" Henry Cavill in Gibraltar!

There are many, many people in this world who dream of meeting Superman.

The closest one could probably get to that wish, is to meet Henry Cavill - the actor who plays the current Man of Steel in the movies.

One of Red Dot Diva's online acquaintances Anthony Ong, achieved that personal goal recently despite facing some health issues. During the time that he was planning to meet Henry Cavill in Gibraltar, Anthony suffered from a returning bout of Bells Palsy. The affliction gave him a lot of pain in his cranial nerve and caused some of his facial muscles to freeze up. Anthony nearly cancelled his trip because of that.

It was a good thing he didn't. Because of his dedication towards #ProjectHenry (this was what Anthony had named his personal mission), he not only got to meet the lovely Henry Cavill, he also managed to exchange more than a few words with the actor.

Now, some readers may be wondering... why of all places Gibraltar? As an ambassador for the Royal Marines Charitable Trust Fund (RMCTF), Henry Cavill was taking part in the 350th anniversary of the Royal Marines held on 24-27 October 2014 by participating in the 5km The Gibraltar Rock Run. As in most grand celebrations, there was a gala dinner which Henry Cavill also attended.

Here are some edited excerpts from Anthony's story:

Anderson Cooper Debuts ... In A Marvel Comic "Black Widow #12"!

Gotta admit. Besides those very bicepstuous Ice Bucket Challenge videos appearing on her social timelines, Red Dot Diva gave out a Big Squee after reading this hot piece of news that was already in her email inbox when she woke up yesterday morn.

Two reasons for the Big Squee:
1. The email was an official press release from Marvel Entertainment. Red Dot Diva has been requesting to be on Marvel's PR list for a darn long time. Does this mean she's now *on* the list? Hmmm.... Time will tell.

2. Was that the silver foxy name of Anderson Cooper in the press release byline? *Diva read it over again twice* Oh my Mjolnir... Yes! It seems that Anderson Cooper is not only an insightful journalist and TV personality well-known for his live coverage and investigation of current topics of interest, he is also a big comic book fan!

The current anchor of CNN’s "Anderson Cooper 360°" will be digging out the hidden secrets, red herrings and truths about the Avengers' team member, the enigmatic ex-KGB operative and skilled assassin, Black Widow.

SDCC 2014: The Artimus had a Blast at Comic-Con, Where Unexpected Things Can Happen!

It was 2 years ago that Red Dot Diva first met @TheArtimus in San Diego through frenemy/ constant convention-roomie Sara. And even though they only meet in real life once a year, he's become one of her fave geek dudes ever since.

Here's how @TheArtimus navigated this year's Comic-Con attending an eclectic slate of activities in his unique laidback yet semi-planned style.

Oh, and he has included some practical SDCC tips in there too! Check this out:

-------------------------------------

Dr. Strangecon or: How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love Sleeping on the Rocks Where the Birds Sh!t 

Underwhelmed.” “Lackluster.” “Meh.

These have been some of the headlines I’ve seen regarding San Diego Comic-Con 2014. Whenever I saw any of those, I couldn’t help but wonder: What convention were these people at? I had a blast as usual, and the only reason I came up with for people being disappointed is that they put all of their eggs in one basket.

Their enjoyment seemed to hinge solely on Warner Bros and/ or Marvel announcing their new projects. While I would have loved to see whoever is playing Dr. Strange grace the stage or hear Ben Affleck’s “Bat voice”, there were three other full days of awesomeness.

Let’s begin on my journey through SDCC 2014. While I won’t bore you with everything that I did, I will showcase the main panels/ offsite events I took part in and hopefully aid fellow attendees with some tips for future years.

Emerald City Comicon 2014 - The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly: A Retrospective

Emerald City Comicon (ECCC) is fast becoming one of the more popular conventions for fans who are into comics more so than the pop-culture fest that San Diego Comic-Con (SDCC) has been in recent years.

Red Dot Diva's Twitter pal, @TheArtimus (whom she has met at SDCC before) decides to take on ECCC this year.

And this is his experience at the Seattle-based convention!

-----------------------------------

This year marked my first trip to ECCC. While I’m not important to this article, a little background information might come in handy.

I’ve been to traditional comic conventions that are so tiny, you can throw a baseball from one end of the show floor to the other, and I’ve been lucky enough to attend the granddaddy of them all, San Diego Comic-Con.

The Walking Dead Live Fan Event in Singapore - Part 1 of Squees


There's simply no better way to kick off a geeky year than being in the thick of blood, gore and beautiful biceps at "The Walking Dead" Live event held at La Salle College of the Arts yesterday.

The fan event organized by Fox Movies Premium, Starhub and PR firm SPRG was one of the most vibrant and fun local fan event Red Dot Diva has attended. Made even more awesome of course, by the two super-popular celebrities from the series - Andrew Lincoln and Norman Reedus, who were very willing to please their fans here by participating in a zombie obstacle course.

Prior to them arriving in Singapore for this special event, Norman Reedus attended and presented at the People's Choice Awards where "The Walking Dead" won the Favourite Cable TV Drama and after the telecast, Andrew Lincoln was awarded Favourite TV Anti-Hero for the character of Rick Grimes. On Twitter, Norman seemed to be having so much fun at the awards, taking selfies, accepting the award on behalf of the TWD family and 'hanging out' with Joseph Morgan and RDJ!

How A Wonder Woman Film Should Be Like


Red Dot Diva was just about to head to bed when she saw this video clip that Absolutely Blew Her Mind.

For the many decades of fans wishing, hoping and pounding their fists on the ground for WB to come up with a decent Wonder Woman film or TV series, this short concept film from an LA-based outfit called Rainfall Films brings geekdom much hope.

If this level of quality can be achieved by Rainfall Films within a small budget, what other real excuses does WB have now?
