With great star power comes great responsibility to charm and entertain.
Key figures in The Amazing Spider-Man 2 swung into town Thursday night. They included (from left) cast members Jamie Foxx, Andrew Garfield and Emma Stone; director Marc Webb; and producers Avi Arad and Matt Tolmach. The stars and the director strode the red carpet at Marina Bay Sands shopping mall, gamely taking selfies and signing autographs for some of the thousands of screaming fans.
Garfield, 30, quipped: "I have never seen a shopping mall with so much soul before." At the press conference held at the MasterCard Theatre later, Foxx, 46, broke out spontaneously into a song about The Straits Times.
On Saturday, the people behind the movie were at the Float@Marina Bay to help switch off lights across the Marina Bay skyline to mark Earth Hour. The film opens here on May 1.
