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!

Go to Raffles City and Win Exclusive Oscars Merchandise as HBO Asia Gears Up For Live Telecast of the 88th Academy Awards


Are you one of those rooting for Leonardo diCaprio to finally get his Oscar this year? Or do you usually favour the dark horse of the list, like Bryan Cranston for his lead role in the autobiographical movie "Trumbo"?

Perhaps you aren't so bothered so much about the winners and losers but love to go googly-eyed on the fashion choices made by the celebrities as they walk down that long red carpet.

Celebrities, their guests and entourage are set to descend on Hollywood's glitziest awards event of the year - the 88th Academy Awards (or better known as the Oscars Awards) - tomorrow evening at 28 February U.S.A. time. Comedian Chris Rock is the host for the ceremonies. With the controversy about the lack of diversity plaguing this year's Oscars, Red Dot Diva is most curious to see how many more folks Chris Rock will insult while he's on stage.

If you have already taken leave from work and planned for a Monday morning Oscars watching party, HBO Asia will be bringing to you the award show LIVE from the Dolby Theatre® at Hollywood & Highland Center® in Hollywood.

Just tune into their cable channel on Starhub at the following times:

- Red Carpet arrivals - 8 AM (repeat telecast 7 PM)
- Award show - 9:30 AM (repeat telecast 8 PM)

Singapore Hosts Red Carpet and Fan Premiere for "The Huntsman: Winter's War" at Universal Studios, RWS

After a dry spell concerning stargazing opportunities in Red Dot Island, Red Dot Diva is glad to see the news splash in today's local media about the premiere of Universal Pictures' "The Huntsman: Winter's War".

Movie stars Chris Hemsworth, Charlize Theron and Jessica Chastain will be making their way here and attending the Red Carpet and Fan Premiere of the movie at Universal Studios, Resorts World Sentosa (RWS) on 3 April 2016.

So, in case you need to take leave, ask for MC, pontang school (Note: Red Dot Diva does not encourage that :P), or get time off from your romantic partners, please make your arrangements early!

"The Huntsman: Winter's War" is a prequel/ sequel to the 2012 fantasy movie "Snow White and the Huntsman", a re-imagining of the popular fairy tale which starred Kristen Stewart, Chris Hemsworth and Charlize Theron in the lead roles.

"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).

Win A Pair of Tickets to Watch Action Flick "Dragon Blade"! (Plus Where You Can Meet the Stars!)

ICMYI -- a troupe of popular movie stars and their entourage are set to descend on our little Red Dot Island next week for promotional activities surrounding the premiere of "Dragon Blade"!

They include action superstar Jackie Chan, John Cusack, Adrien Brody, Choi Siwon, Lin Peng and Wang Ruo Xin. (Check out more details in a previous blog article here.)

The China-produced movie, which will premiere island-wide during the Chinese New Year season on 19 February, is said to have cost a vault-busting, record-breaking USD 65 million to film. This probably doesn't include the costs of the two fancy private jets that will be bringing the group here in time for the press conference on 10 February, a meet and greet at Nex's atrium as well as the Gala Premiere at GV Vivocity.

After the whirlwind of activities, Red Dot Diva was told that the entourage will then zoom off to the next promotional stop on their private jets.

"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.

"Guardians of the Galaxy" Stars Landing in Singapore for Red Carpet Premiere

YEAHHHHHHHHHHH!

So many superheroes, mutants and aliens are dropping by the Red Dot Island these days.

Just when you thought you flew back into a future past, folks from Marvel's "Guardians of the Galaxy" are set to land their feet here in a couple of weeks!!

It is making Red Dot Diva wonder if that asymmetrical flower-shape structure stationed below the ship-building at Marina Bay is actually a beacon to stars in galaxies beyond.

If news haven't gotten around to you yet, Zoe Saldana and Dave Bautista as well as director James Gunn will be walking down the red carpet on 12 July (Sat) at Shaw Centre. (Updated 30 June: Expected time - 6:30 PM. Now you know what time to camp out!)

Live on Yahoo! - World Premiere of "Transformers: Age of Extinction" in Hong Kong tonight!


Tonight, starting from 7:45 PM, Hong Kong is set to be the stage of the World Premiere of "Transformers: Age of Extinction"!

If you have caught the trailer, the action-packed Michael Bay-helmed movie was partially filmed on location in Hong Kong, and with the help of visual effects, the city was heavily demolished by warring giant robots.

"Transformers: Age of Extinction" takes place four years after the last movie - a time when the Autobots and Decepticons have gone underground after being hunted by the government. That is until a mechanic discovered a machine that did not seem to be what it was.

To celebrate the World Premiere, director Michael Bay and cast members Mark Wahlberg, Nicola Peltz and Jack Reyne are set to land on the red carpet in Hong Kong. Joining them and performing on stage will be Grammy Award-winning rock band, Imagine Dragons!

Fans Go Wild For "The Amazing Spider-man 2" Cast And Crew - Red Carpet Event in Singapore


With Spider-man being the first Super-Hero for Earth Hour, a glitzy international "The Amazing Spider-man 2" red carpet and press conference event was held at the Marina Bay Sands' (MBS) Skating Rink, Singapore on Thursday evening (27 March 2014).

Our little Red Dot Island is the home for Earth Hour, and this year's festivities will kick-off at The Float @ Marina Bay in a few hours' time, at 5 PM on 29 March 2014.

At first, Red Dot Diva did not expect that she will be able to attend the red carpet and press conference because she had no media invite, and she did not join any contest in a bid to win passes. Then, out of the blue, fellow lady geekster @Sarahcoldheart invited Red Dot Diva to be her +1 for the event. SQUEEEE!

Star-Gazing At The "Iron Man 3" Red Carpet Premiere in LA

For any die-hard fan, it can be a fun thing to hang out at the red carpet barricades hoping to catch a glimpse of your favourite star at a Los Angeles movie premiere. How often does this happen in Red Dot Island anyway right?

So, yet again, Red Dot Diva is living vicariously through her good friend, Chelle and her red carpet adventures.

Here's her star-studded report from the recent "Iron Man 3" premiere at the El Capitan!

Special Report from Wellington, NZ: Ground Zero at "The Hobbit" World Premiere

Elven statues guarding the red carpet area
Maybe one day Red Dot Diva will get to attend a Hollywood red carpet premiere.

For now, she has only been to very few glitzy ones held here, and those were mainly because she was working the media beat during Screen Singapore last year.

Until the time when international media marketing folks warm up to the idea that Red Dot Island may be a suitable stage for such glamourous premieres (in reality, the tropical humidity and heat doesn't quite help!), she will probably keep on dreaming of such large-scale star-gazing opportunities.

Wellington native Elizabeth E. Scrivener though, is a lucky gal to be living right where fantasy movie-style Middle-Earth is being created.

Naturally, she was at the sidelines of the exciting red carpet premiere for "The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey" this past week. Here's her report:

Special Report from Wellington, NZ: The Run-Up to An Expected Premiere for "The Hobbit"

Red Dot Diva is envious. Super envious, actually.

Native kiwis seem to have it all with regards to fictional Middle-Earth. After all, most of the sets seen in the "Lord of the Rings" (LOTR) trilogy and the upcoming movies for "The Hobbit" are based on New Zealand landscapes and landmarks.

With "The Hobbit" movies (there will be three parts!), Peter Jackson has returned as director, together with a host of very familiar faces from the LOTR trilogy, like Sir Ian McKellen as Gandalf the Grey, Cate Blanchett as Galadriel, Elijah Wood as Frodo and Andy Serkis as Gollum. Ok, well.... we don't get to see Andy Serkis' face in the movies, but his remarkable contribution to that precioussssss role is undeniably recognizable.

A fresh bunch of actors who have assumed roles in "The Hobbit" movies will soon join the long list of memorable Lord of the Rings cast members. Martin Freeman heads the cast as the younger Bilbo Baggins who will be going on the adventure of his lifetime. The accompanying dwarves on this journey include actors like the very nommy Richard Armitage (Thorin Oakenshield), James Nesbitt (Nofur) and Aidan Turner of "Being Human" fame (Kili). Plus, Red Dot Diva knows that many BBC Sherlock fans are still squeeing over the fact that Benedict Cumberbatch has lent his voice for Smaug the dragon.

Assembled! For the Avengers World Premiere in LA!

Ever fancy yourself strolling down a red carpet?

Well, Red Dot Diva's celeb-shoulder-rubbing glamourista pal Chelle managed to attend a red carpet premiere in Hollywood again recently. And this time, it was for the superhero movie most geeks have been waiting for - "The Avengers"!

Here is her account of the wonderful night amongst the stars.

On Wednesday, April 11th, I was lucky enough to be able to attend the red carpet premiere of "The Avengers" at the El Capitan Theater in Hollywood.

The day started out kinda chilly and rainy but as soon as we gathered at the barriers, the rain had pretty much gone away. Even though we didn’t need to stand at the barriers, Laura and I thought that it would be fun to hang out with fellow tumblr/ twitter friends including THE Godofbadassery who I think is a really cool sweet girl. We hung out till around 3pm and then headed back to my house (which was thankfully close to the theater) to get ready for our Avengers Adventure.

At Screen Singapore's Premiere of "The Devil Inside Me"

Director Zhang Qi and actress Anya
Red Dot Diva found it a little strange that the opening movie for the inaugural Screen Singapore turned out to be a spooky horror-thriller entitled "The Devil Inside Me".

Are the organizers trying to scare more people into attending next year's event? ;)

The premiere for the movie was held at GV Vivocity, a cineplex nestled within a very crowded shopping mall. The setting itself detracts much from the glamourous aura of celebrity-spotting. But that didn't stop some very excited fans from staking out their places at the cineplex several hours before the celebrities made their appearances.

Because, after all, how often does one get to see Zhang Ziyi in the flesh???
