The Asia Premiere of ‘The Wolverine’ and Meeting Hugh Jackman! :)

The highly anticipated movie, ‘The Wolverine’, will be screened in cinemas here starting 25th July, this Thursday. And… I’ve already watched it! 😀 All thanks to Scoot and Golden Village for flying me to Seoul to catch the press conference, meet Hugh Jackman, have him sign on my poster, and they even gave me a ticket to the movie premiere. Yes, I am super fortunate! 😀

I was one of three bloggers on the trip. The other two are Alvin and Regina. And there were also winners from contests run by Class 95FM, Y.E.S. 93.3FM, Scoot and GV as well. Joining us on the trip were two celebs – Jean Danker (so friendly and hot!) and Lim Peifen (super fair skinned and pretty!)

You probably want to know my take on the movie, right? First up, I have to say that I was EXHAUSTED from the long flight to Seoul (with transit in Taipei) and the press conference early in the morning nearly killed me. BUT, I did not fall asleep during the movie, which was screened around 9pm. It was THAT good. Like Hugh said during the press conference, the movie has the action scenes, the romance, the twist in the plot, and lets viewers have a deeper understanding of this character.

So many cameras, I lost count:

I have to honestly say, though, that there’s perhaps no real need to watch the movie in 3D – nothing will be flying at you. Ha! Just saying. 😀

Here’s a trailer on Youtube:

I probably don’t watch enough movies ‘cos the ending really caught me by surprise – I totally had a “Isn’t he the good guy?!” moment. I don’t want to spoil it for you (I’m trying so hard not to give away too much of the plot!) so go watch the movie k! 😀

And oh… before the movie screening, there was a performance by a Korean band called ‘Dick Punks’. It just seems like a really strange name for a band and erm… quite unfortunate as well, because I found them rather ‘feminine’. (@_@) But the Korean girls in the audience just went CRAZY! Ok. I shall stop here. Don’t want to receive any death threats. 😀

And… Hugh Jackman signed my poster. Hehe! As part of the Singapore ‘contingent’, I got up close to Hugh, and got him to sign a ‘Wolverine’ poster for my giveaway. 😀

This is how close he came to all of us:

*I see at least one very excited fan! LOL*
