This is the day that Butter is waiting for, the première screening of The Amazing Spider-Man 2: The Rise of Electro. Another reason that make Butter feels excited is that Butter is watching in IMAX 3D! Besides that, Butter will be among the firsts to  watch this movie even earlier than our American counterpart! How awesome!

It is also the official launch of TGV Gurney Paragon. It has 9 halls which include 1 X IMAX Hall, 1 X Beanie Hall, 7 X Standard Halls and will have a total of 1,287 seats. This is also TGV Cinemas’ fourth IMAX Hall! 🙂

Bloggers & medias and also the public are treated with photo session imitating Spider-Man’s moves. Butter doing the Spidey’s move!


TGV Cinemas also attempts Guinness Malaysia record of ‘The Largest Gathering of People Dressed as Spider-Man’. Butter heard that there are a total of 342 Spider-Man wannabes who dressed up like Spider-Man while watching the movie! Cool!

Bloggers are also treated with games such as TGV IMAX Trivia Challenge & Spidey Sense. We need to answer 15 questions and also use our hands to guess the item inside a closed box and also to taste the popcorn flavor. That keeps us busy and entertained will waiting for the official opening.

And there are some light refreshment prepared by Eden Catering. Butter loves the fried chicken! Thumbs up! 🙂

Mr Tamon Iwasaki, IMAX’s Director of Theater Marketing in Asia was invited to the stage to give a speech.

Spider-Man was invited to present the key to officiate the launching of TGV Gurney Paragon. But wait… something happened…

The key didn’t respond and something screwed up. And Spider-Man senses something is wrong here and something evil is coming!

Oh my, it is Electro!

Spider-Man fought with Electro and he thought of a good idea to help the malfunction key. He borrowed Electro’s power and finally the key responded and the official launching of TGV Gurney Paragon happened! Spider-Man saves the day! 😛

Butter enjoyed this cheeky official opening. Good job for the TGV team to think of such idea! After the official opening, we are ushered to the IMAX Hall to enjoy our movie. It is so nice of them to prepare popcorn and soft drink for us at our seats. The seats are wide & comfortable. One thing weird is that the seating is labeled ABC from the front and not the back. Try to get further back to enjoy a better movie experience & better for your neck 😛 And some of you might wonder what is so special about IMAX, here’s a video to explain it all. A very funny & nice video by our Malaysians.

Butter got a chance to take picture with Spider-Man & Electro after the movie!

Look at the crowd of Spider-Boys & Spider-Girls 😛 They are getting ready to break the Guinness record of ‘The Largest Gathering of People Dressed as Spider-Man’!

Finally, we bloggers also get together for a group photo shoot. Thanks Sui Yien for taking the photo for us! 🙂
