One of the most anticipated super hero movie of the year, Marvel’s The Avengers is scheduled for a May 1st release here in Singapore. As everyone waited in anticipation, a very privileged group of people were invited to catch the movie 2 weeks before it opens to the public. This included members of the media, VIPs and a special group of “superfans” who were allowed to catch the first 45 minutes of the movie.
Although the special screening was held on a Monday morning, you could feel that sense of excitement all around as everyone couldn’t wait to catch a movie that’s is high on everyone’s watch list. And it sure didn’t help that the red carpet event of the world premiere was streamed lived and definitely whet everyone’s appetite even more. I know I immediately shifted my schedule around to make sure I could attend it.
As everyone settled into the cinema awaiting the start of the movie, the nice people behind the special screening had one little surprise for all the superfans that took time off to attend the screening. You could hear loud cheers and applause as the host announced that everyone in the cinema was allowed to stay through the whole show.
It was definitely a generous gesture by the organisers to allow the superfans to stay throughout the whole show and I am sure it will be one they will never forget. Having the fans around was also a nice touch as it added to the atmosphere of the whole screening and by the look on everyone faces as they left the cinema, this was one monday that didn’t felt blue at all.
