More stars heading to Singapore to shoot and promote movies
US actress Kristen Stewart and British actor Nicholas Hoult (pictured here) are among the movie stars headed to Singapore this year.

Next stop: Singapore.

The year is proving to be a turning point, with Hollywood fixing its eyes on our tiny island and heading our way to promote blockbusters and shoot movies.

The increasingly high-wattage celebrity sightings have also caused quite a stir.

Star Trek star Zachary Quinto and Homeland actor Rupert Friend were recently spotted around local landmarks like Gardens by the Bay and Chinatown when their action flick, Agent 47, moved filming from Berlin to Singapore.

But brace yourself for even more, when the likes of Twilight actresses Kristen Stewart and Nikki Reed as well as Jack The Giant Slayer heart-throb Nicholas Hoult land here in the coming months.

Hot on the heels of Agent 47's shoot here, sci-fi drama Equals will reportedly fly Hoult and Stewart here for filming, tentatively slated for August.

Later this year, we will also see Reed on our shores when filming begins for the Kelvin Tong-directed horror movie Email.

In addition, Singapore has and will continue to play host to even bigger stars during their movie promotional tours.

In March, the main cast of The Amazing Spider-Man 2 - Emma Stone, Andrew Garfield and Jamie Foxx - swung by to meet the media and fans at a red carpet event at Marina Bay Sands' skating rink. They were also involved in Earth Hour-related activities, including a visit to Commonwealth Secondary School, where they talked to students on environmental sustainability and switching off the lights around the Marina Bay area to mark Earth Hour.
