May The Fourth 2016: A Heartfelt Fan Celebration of All Things Star Wars


The gathering was not held on May the Fourth itself, since that will be a working Wednesday, and Red Dot Island fans are practical folks who do need to clock into their day jobs.

However, the May the Fourth event that kicked off earlier today at OCBC Square, Singapore Sports Hub, was a good way to get your Star Wars fix. At least until the next Resistance.

May The Fourth 2016: Join the Local Geekdom for Star Wars Day, 30 April & 1 May 2016


Calling all Star Wars fans in Red Dot Island!

Join the local geekdom in an early early May the Fourth celebration of all things Star Wars this weekend. Organized by fans, the event is held on 30 April and 1 May at OCBC Square, Singapore Sports Hub, 11 AM to 8 PM.

For this year's May the Fourth or Star Wars Day, the list of activities include the largest display of Star Wars toys here, a show consisting of artist fan art, commissioned artworks as well as character sketches by the Band of Doodlers, Jashorn Lee and Rachta Lin, as well as exciting lightsaber performances + workshops on stage by FightSaber. Of course, there will also be appearances and photo opportunities with your favourite Star Wars characters, courtesy of 501st Legion Singapore Garrison and Cathar Outpost - Rebel Legion.

What's new this year is a panel with Lucasfilm Singapore artists who have worked on the most recent movie "Star Wars: The Force Awakens". Red Dot Diva thinks this is definitely worth attending for those who are interested to know more about the magic that happens behind the scenes.

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.

Captain America: Civil War - Battle Of The Light Displays Begins at Marina Bay, 22 April 2016

These are the final hours!

Soon the "Captain America: Civil War" South-East Asia Blue Carpet Premiere will be held at the Skating Rink located at the Marina Bay Sands.

Many of you will be heading there early to "chope" your spots at the outer barricade. Yes, outer. Because there's an inner one within the rink where those lucky ones with the access passes are allowed entry.

Do feel free to share your Blue Carpet Premiere photos by tagging Red Dot Diva on Twitter, and she will be happy to retweet them to the world!

The #TeamCap party won't end after the Blue Carpet Premiere is over though!

Come back to the bay the next day, 22 April, Friday as the cast members of #TeamCap - Chris Evans, Anthony Mackie, Sebastian Stan and Joe Russo - join their superhero powers to take over Marina Bay Sands, the Helix Bridge as well as the Singapore Flyer for a very epic lightup and fireworks display!

The colourful light fest will be a challenge against #TeamIronMan who will be standing ready to light up the Eiffel Tower in Paris, France.

Be at the Helix Bridge or the Olympic Youth Park by 8PM to watch the showdown. Don't worry, it's free for the public to attend!

Remember to have lots of fun showing off your love for these Marvel superheroes this weekend. The event is going to be crowded and wild so Red Dot Diva reminds everyone again
-- Be Kind to Each Other!

"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.
