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.

Will Star Wars Celebration Europe 2016 Be A True Celebration For Fans?

For the last 17 years, a convention called "Star Wars Celebration" has been held for Star Wars lovers to celebrate everything about the franchise. ReedPop took over as the event organizer in 2010 with "Star Wars Celebration V" in Orlando, where the 30th anniversary party for "The Empire Strikes Back" was also hosted.

This year, Red Dot Diva is heading to her first such meetup held at London's EXCEL Centre from 15 to 17 July 2016. The current edition has been entitled "Star Wars Celebration Europe" (SWCE). Although with BREXIT, the "Europe" header seems to be simmering like an embittered soon-to-divorced spouse.

For the last month, many fans were unhappy and voiced their concerns that ReedPop had yet to announce sufficient guests for them to feel that the event was a true celebration of sorts. At that point, only the key guests Mark Hamill, Carrie Fisher, Kathleen Kennedy, Gareth Edwards and Dave Filoni were announced. Inevitably, the number of guests listed was compared to the huge line-up at Anaheim 2015, which saw the entire cast of "The Force Awakens" make their presence on stage.

Prior to BREXIT, ReedPop announced a few more guests like Anthony Daniels, Peter Mayhew, Jeremy Bulloch, Ray Park and Daniel Logan as well as a list of autographing guests. Which was all well and good, but there has still been no word about celebrity guests from TFA, Rogue One or Episode VIII. However, what caught most attendees unprepared were the exorbitant prices charged for the celebrity photo ops.

Team Cap Armed with Quips at "Captain America: Civil War" South-East Asia Press Conference, Singapore


Mostly, it was Anthony Mackie who was firmly locked and loaded with quips and trash talk in a show of rivalry against Team Iron-Man. However, the beardy but very hunky Chris Evans was all charms at the "Captain America: Civil War" South-East Asia press conference held at Marina Bay Sands, Red Dot Island on the morning of 21 April 2016.


The press conference was attended by cast members Chris Evans, Sebastian Stan and Anthony Mackie, who was accompanied by Joe Russo, one half of the movie's directing team. The team flew in from another press junket in Beijing, China which had no time difference from Red Dot Island, so if they had suffered any jet lag, it did not seem noticeable at all.

Where You Can Nab Those Freebies on FCBD 2015!

FCBD (Free Comic Book Day) is a day away!!!

This year, participating shops have been a little late in their respective announcements, plus there aren't any special overseas guests heading to Red Dot Island for the weekend. However, Red Dot Diva has a rundown of who's giving out what (other than FREE comics, of course!) this coming Saturday, 2 May.

One will also notice a strong Star Wars theme featured in this Saturday's activities. That is because the island will also be celebrating Star Wars Day, i.e. May the 4th slightly early over the weekend! (More on that later in a separate article!)

Comic book geekdom has been getting more and more mainstream, thanks to popularity of superhero movies and TV shows. Red Dot Diva has noticed that the number of people participating in FCBD has grown significantly with each passing year.

The free comics given out on FCBD are not unlimited in supply, so they do run out in some places quicker than one can imagine. Therefore, if one is intending to set aside Saturday especially for an island-wide FCBD fun-run, DO plan your schedule carefully!

Here's a list of hot spots where one can head to to get your free comics:

SDCC 2013 Recap: Breakfast With The Walking Dead. Graaaiiinnnssssss! (Part 1)

Nothing beats encountering a starving zombie in a cramped elevator early in the morning.

But that was exactly what happened to Red Dot Diva on Day 2 of San Diego Comic-Con this summer.

The invite for "The Walking Dead" breakfast press event came as a surprise in Red Dot Diva's email inbox. How could she say no to it?? The event was way too special and too rare a chance to pass up. Especially for someone from the tiny Red Dot Island.

So on that Friday morning, she dragged herself out of bed and managed to find her way to Hotel Andaz at Gaslamp.
