Amazing Spider-Man 2 stars charm thousands of fans at Marina Bay Sands Singapore

With great star power comes great responsibility to charm and entertain. The director and cast of The Amazing Spider-Man 2 swung into town on Thursday night and they were all in top form, pleasing both fans and the press alike with jokes and good-natured jibes at one another.

Director Marc Webb and stars Andrew Garfield, Emma Stone and Jamie Foxx strode the red carpet at Marina Bay Sands shopping mall, gamely taking selfies and signing autographs for some of the thousands of screaming fans that packed all four floors of the building near the ice skating rink.

Garfield, 30, quipped: "I have never seen a shopping mall with so much soul before." He added that he had "very tasty" chicken rice at Maxwell food centre earlier in the day, much to the delight of the onlookers.

At the press conference held at the MasterCard Theatre following the red carpet segment, Foxx, 46, improvised a song about The Straits Times and put it into an impromptu beatbox and rap song, causing the entire hall filled with fans and international journalists to cheer and whistle.

Stone, 25, also got everyone laughing when she attempted to sidestep a question about what the definition of an "activated complex" is. She was asked the question jokingly as she plays a science expert, Gwen Stacy, in the film.

The actress paused, then said to the journalist in jest: "Why are you doing this? What have I done to you? I know the answer in my mind but do you know the answer? I'm not going to do your homework for you."

On Saturday, the people behind The Amazing Spider-Man 2 will be at the Float@Marina Bay to help switch off the lights across the Marina Bay skyline to mark Earth Hour.


I also found lots of fan-taken videos and pictures at andrewgarfield-update@Tumblr. They're literally so near yet so far from me~

I feel that Hollywood is marketing very heavily in Asia nowadays and not just China. Emma+Andrew were just in Beijing and Jamie Foxx+BCum were just in Malaysia. And it seems Margot Robbie is now in Hong Kong to promote something. Good for those of us in Asia tbh.

mte. we don't get that many celebrities rolling in so bringing in the whole cast of a big movie franchise is step up for us

I just hope there's not too many villains going on that everything else suffers. we all know how well that went over in spiderman 3

Judging by the trailers alone, my guess is that Paul Giamatti's character will only be seen briefly in the beginning and the rest of the movie will focus on Jamie Foxx and to a lesser extent Dane Dehaan. I don't know who else is in it that has been left out of the trailers though.

I wanted to go to MBS to see them yesterday but I didn't want to compete with the crowd. I might go down to the float though. This is probably my only chance to see Andrew.

Garfield, 30, quipped: "I have never seen a shopping mall with so much soul before."

Pfft. I hope he means for this specific occasion only because MBS is meant to cater to the rich white tourists. Such an uppity place.

Go! I'm in KL and if not for wanting to save some money for another trip I would've travelled down to MBS.

MTE @ the "rich white tourists" comment. Though technically he's one of those so he's the target demographic? :P
