Game of Thrones Season 7 Arrives on HBO Asia 17 July 2017, 9 AM

Winter is Coming. And so is War!

After that shocking "Game of Thrones" S6 season finale where a whole bunch of people went Kaboom!, the cruel and scheming Cersei ended up being crowned as Queen of the Seven Kingdoms. From then on, things are just going to get more intense.

The convergence of the different houses in Season 7 will unfold in just seven episodes as the different players focus on King's Landing. This is ominously depicted in the first official teaser made entirely of sigils belonging to the main Houses at play - the Lannisters, the Targaryens, the Starks, the Baratheons and the Tyrells, plus one more powerful game changer - the White Walkers.

Will the Great Wall hold? Or will it all come tumbling down?

"Fear the Walking Dead" Season 2 Is Now On AMC Asia


Following the phenomenal success of "The Walking Dead" (TWD), a prequel/ spinoff called "Fear The Walking Dead" (FTWD) was aired last year on the AMC cable channel.

The show is also the brainchild of TWD's Robert Kirkman and co-creator Dave Erickson. There seems to be lot of faith placed on FTWD's showrunners, as a second season was renewed ahead of the airdate for its Season 1 premiere.

Set in sunny and highly populated city of Los Angeles, FTWD followed the series of events that unfolded right after the initial onset of a virulent strain of infection. A group of survivors which consisted mainly of an extended family, stumble and bicker as they attempted to avoid being zombie lunch. Although to be clear, in the series' timeline, the hungry biters were called "The Infected".

Red Dot Diva found the first season of FTWD a very very VERY slow burn, even though there were only 6 episodes aired.

Celebrity Encounters at "The Huntsman Winter's War Premiere" at Resorts World Sentosa, Singapore!

It was just a week ago that a few hundred Red Dot Island fans were lined up at the area near the Pantages Theatre at Resorts World Sentosa, all eager to catch a glimpse of the cast members of "The Huntsman: Winter's War".

Actors Charlize Theron, Chris Hemsworth, Jessica Chastain and director Cedric Nicolas-Troyan had already arrived on the island a couple of days earlier, and were attending the red carpet on the evening of 3 April.

Out of the lot, Jessica Chastain was the most social media-active one, and posted a few photos on her Instagram about her mini adventures, as she took in the sights, smells and tastes of Red Dot Island. She was also even more petite than she looked on screen!

Red Dot Diva decided not to get into the action at RWS last weekend because she really need a rest. The weather's heat and humidity were getting to her, and it is at moments like these that she feels as if her old bones are getting creakier. The crazed intensity that will happen when the stars walk down the red carpet would have been too much for her. So, she hid in her cubby-hole at home and watched her social media timeline, rejoicing with her friends as they got to meet their favourite celebrities.


From most of the tweets that Red Dot Diva spotted, Jessica Chastain seemed to be especially gracious with the fans who had been waiting for more than 8 hours at RWS to see her as well as the other celebrities. As much as she could, she took her time with them. Her eyes bright and with a smile as welcoming as her charisma, she signed autographs and took several selfies.

One of Red Dot Diva's geeky acquaintances Milodrums waited for several hours at RWS. Milodrums and her friends had some wonderful encounters with Chris Hemsworth and Jessica Chastain that day.

So, here's Milodrums account in her very own words!

Even though Red Dot Diva is firmly on the side of Team Rich Guys, there's no harm in appreciating ALL kinds of Biceps. Including the yummy ones owned by Team Cap! :D

In an effort to protect his friend Bucky coupled with his desire that the superheroes should be able to protect humanity without restraints, Steve Rogers/ Captain America goes against Tony Stark, causing a fracture between the former team members.

Behold! The "Star Wars: The Force Awakens" Movie Poster; New Trailer To Be Released Later Today!

The Imperial troops march closer as it is less than 60 days to the premiere of "Star Wars: The Force Awakens" here in Red Dot Island.

To mark the occasion, Lucasfilm and Disney have released the official movie poster!

Red Dot Diva loves how the female character, Rey portrayed by Daisy Ridley, has a prominent image on centrestage. She hopes this means Rey gets loads of screen time!

Then, there's John Boyega's character, Finn (who's supposedly not a Jedi) is shown yielding a lightsaber. Strangely enough, the main Jedi most of us are rooting for (unless you're already on the Dark Side) is not in the poster. Where is Luke Skywalker (Mark Hamill)? Is this related to the notion of a recluse Jedi Master or something else? Hmmmmmmmm.........

Daniel Wu (吳彥祖) Leads New AMC Martial Arts Drama Series "Into The Badlands" - Premieres 16 November 2015

Who loves watching kick-ass martial arts movies?

Red Dot Diva does.

She was brought up on a constant fodder of martial arts movies. Ever since she was a kid, she has been relishing those action movies churned out by Shaw Brothers Studio, with actors Ti Lung, David Chiang, Wang Yu and Brigitte Lin gracing the big screen with their moves. In later years, Red Dot Diva continued to get kicks out of watching Jackie Chan, Yuen Biao, Donnie Yen, and Jet Li movies. Thanks to her Dad and an uncle who loved kung fu movies. She even has a cousin named after famous wuxia actress Chen Pei-Pei!

Which brings about how excited Red Dot Diva about AMC's new drama series "Into The Badlands", created by Alfred Gough and Miles Millar ("Smallville"). The 6-episode show is set in a dystopian world, 500 years from now, where guns have been outlawed. This gives a great excuse for AMC to bring back martial arts to our TV screens.

Marvel and Subway Singapore Present "The Earth's Mightiest Combo" for "Avengers: Age of Ultron"!

Subway Singapore's follow-up promotional collaboration with Marvel for "Avengers: Age of Ultron" must be one of the most fun marketing collaborations Red Dot Diva has seen in awhile! The fast food sandwich franchise had first worked with Marvel to promote "Guardians of the Galaxy" last year.

All fans need to do is to join a simple contest at Subway's Facebook page, and 200 lucky winners would have the opportunity to be amongst the first to watch the long awaited sequel on April 21, 8 PM at Shaw Lido.! All you need to do is tell Subway in the page link above, what you would do if you are an Avenger, and hashtag your answer with #IfIWereAnAvenger.

Also, everyone knows that being a superhero is a tough job, which can make any meta human/ deity/ alien/ mutant very very hungry. Or in the Hulk's case - hangry. And you won't like him with his hangry!

Westeros is Coming to Singapore! Game of Thrones S5 Premieres on HBO Asia, April 13!

It has been a long long wait for Game of Thrones Season 5, the epic, crazy-popular fantasy series based on the books by George R. R. Martin. But soon, dear GOT fans, you will get to watch the premiere episode from the new season on HBO Asia. The date to mark your calendars ---- April 13!

The last time viewers left Westeros, there had been many shocking twists and turns. For one thing, Tyrion finally gave Papa his just desserts, usually naive Sansa Stark went dark (literally) and sultry - thanks to the creepy urgings of Littlefinger, Arya went off on her own after leaving the Hound to die, Jon makes a pact with Mance Rayder, Daenerys was not having a fun time learning How to Chain your Dragon, while Bran & Co battled ice zombies and finally spot the mysterious Children of the Forest.

All of these which left many fans dying for more revelations about our favourite Game of Thrones characters. It won't be long before we will be transported once again to the Land of Westeros, and this will be the first time we will be taken to the opulent Kingdom of Dorne - the domain of the House of Martell and the deadly Sand Snakes.

Naturally, this means that new cast members have been added to the show's latest season. The new actors include Jonathan Pryce (the High Sparrow), Alexander Siddig (Doran Martell), DeObia Oparei (Areo Hotah), Keisha Castle-Hughes (Obara Sand), Rosabell Laurenti Sellers (Tyene Sand), Jessica Henwick (Nym Sand), Nell Tiger Free (Myrcella Baratheon) and Toby Sebastian (Trystane Martell).

"Dragon Blade" Gala Premiere - Excited Fans at GV Vivocity and A Movie Review by Vernon

The very very very expensive epic historical action movie "Dragon Blade" opens officially in cinemas island-wide today on 19 February, the 1st day of Chinese New Year.

From what Red Dot Diva was told, the movie did very well during the sneak screenings from 13-15 February, grossing about S$147,662 in just 3 days.

RED CARPET
The cast were in visibly good spirits on their first promotional stop in Red Dot Island, even though Adrien did seem jetlagged at the morning's press conference.

Later that day at GV Vivocity for the red carpet gala premiere, they seem to have perked up more. Hundreds of fans (mostly young ones, who seem to be there screaming for Choi SiWon) were lined up along the passageway leading into the multiplex, all eager to catch a glimpse of their favourite idol(s).

"Dragon Blade" Premiere in Singapore: Adrien Brody Shares About Being in A Martial Arts Flick

Adrien Brody caught the attention of the world in 2002 when he was awarded the Academy Award for Best Actor for "The Pianist". He was 29 years old, and his record of being the youngest actor to ever receive the award has yet to be broken.

Now at 41 years of age, the tall and lanky Adrien was here in Red Dot Island for the gala premiere of historical martial arts movie, "Dragon Blade". In the movie, Adrien was the protagonist, a cruel Roman ruler named Tiberius.

He was part of the entourage which consisted of his other co-stars - action superstar Jackie Chan, John Cusack, Chon SiWon, Lin Peng and Wang Ruo Xin. A few hours prior, the group had fielded questions from a hoard of photo-hungry media folks at the press conference. Red Dot Island was their first stop of a whirlwind promotional tour for the film, and during the press con, Adrien looked visibly jet-lagged. Yet, from time to time, a slow smile would form on his trademark lugubrious features.

That same afternoon, together with her favourite movie-watching companion Vernon, Red Dot Diva was patiently waiting outside the 22nd level of Pan Pacific hotel for their roundtable slot with Adrien. When they were finally ushered into the room, Adrien (who was dressed in a simple yet stylish combi of dark greyish sweater, blue jeans and white striped scarf), was already standing, politely greeting each media person with a firm handshake.

"Dragon Blade" actors Jackie Chan, John Cusack and Adrien Brody in Singapore for Gala Premiere!

Lunar New Year is a time when many Chinese movies like comedies or blockbusters are released. For many Chinese communities around the world, it has become a tradition to gather a bunch of family members or good friends after the reunion dinner, and head to the cinema to catch a film.

For this coming Year of the Ram, the movie to look out for is action period drama "Dragon Blade" (天将雄狮), which stars action superstar, Jackie Chan, Academy Award winner Adrien Brody, A-lister John Cusack, Korean pop-idol Choi Siwon (Super Junior) and Chinese actresses, Lin Peng and Wang Ruo Xin.

The movie is directed by famed HK film maker Daniel Lee (“White Vengeance”, “14 Blades”) and is set in 48BC, during the Han Dynasty, when Lucius (John Cusack), a Roman general accused of treason treks into the Middle Kingdom with his pack of soldiers. While in the Gobi Desert, he befriends and forms an alliance with Huo An (Jackie Chan), a former commander forced into slavery by corrupt officials. Hot on Lucius' heels is Tiberius (Adrien Brody), the ambitious baddie son of Rome's Consul. Tiberius is leading a large troop of 100,000 soldiers toward the Chinese border, intent on capturing the runaway general.

Spot Red in Singapore as "The Blacklist" Season 2 Premieres on AXN Asia, September 23rd!

Hit TV Series "The Blacklist" may seem like the run-of-the-mill good guy vs bad guy investigative show. But there are a few things that set it apart from other FBI or cop shows out there.

For starters, there's Emmy Award-winning actor James Spader, who is superb in the main role of Red "Reddington", the manipulative resident baddie with a well-mannered, cultured demeanor but mysterious background.

Parading around in his trademark fedora and black trench coat, and enunciating his lines in clipped tones that more often than not are dripping with sarcasm, one simply cannot keep one's eyes off him on screen! James Spader makes egoistical and scheming Red's almost Hannibal-Clarisse-like relationship with FBI agent rookie profiler Elizabeth Keen (Megan Boone) seem creepy but believable.

Secondly, the show is full of characters that have intriguing backgrounds and nefarious motives. In Season 1, every episode was based on a target with an over-the-top codename like "The Stewmaker" or "The Pavlovich Brothers". Each target on Red's list provided clues to the intricate web that he had been weaving, and continues to weave.

There were more twists and kinks than one could count, making the series such a watchable guilty-pleasure. Red Dot Diva got seriously hooked to it after the first couple of episodes of Season 1!
