Synopsis:

“Maleficent” explores the untold story of Disney’s most iconic villain from the classic “Sleeping Beauty” and the elements of her betrayal that ultimately turn her pure heart to stone.

2

Driven by revenge and a fierce desire to protect the moors over which she presides, Maleficent cruelly places an irrevocable curse upon the human king’s newborn infant Aurora.

3

As the child grows, Aurora is caught in the middle of the seething conflict between the forest kingdom she has grown to love and the human kingdom that holds her legacy.

4

Maleficent realizes that Aurora may hold the key to peace in the land and is forced to take drastic actions that will change both worlds forever.

MALEFICENT

“Maleficent” is produced by Joe Roth and directed by Robert Stromberg, with Angelina Jolie, Don Hahn, Palak Patel, Matt Smith and Sarah Bradshaw serving as executive producers. Linda Woolverton wrote the screenplay.

Synopsis:

Oscar® nominee Tom Cruise (the “Mission: Impossible” films, “Collateral,” “Jerry Maguire”) and Emily Blunt (“The Devil Wears Prada,” “The Adjustment Bureau”) star in Warner Bros. Pictures’ and Village Roadshow Pictures’ sci-fi thriller “Edge of Tomorrow,” under the direction of Doug Liman (“The Bourne Identity,” “Mr. & Mrs. Smith”).

EDGE OF TOMORROW

The epic action of “Edge of Tomorrow” unfolds in a near future in which an alien race has hit the Earth in an unrelenting assault, unbeatable by any military unit in the world.

Major William Cage (Cruise) is an officer who has never seen a day of combat when he is unceremoniously dropped into what amounts to a suicide mission.  Killed within minutes, Cage now finds himself inexplicably thrown into a time loop—forcing him to live out the same brutal combat over and over, fighting and dying again…and again.

ALL YOU NEED IS KILL

 But with each battle, Cage becomes able to engage the adversaries with increasing skill, alongside Special Forces warrior Rita Vrataski (Blunt).  And, as Cage and Rita take the fight to the aliens, each repeated encounter gets them one step closer to defeating the enemy.

ALL YOU NEED IS KILL

 The international cast also includes Bill Paxton (“Aliens,” HBO’s “Big Love”), Brendan Gleeson (“Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 1”), Noah Taylor (“Lawless”), Kick Gurry (Australian TV’s “Tangle”), Dragomir Mrsic (“Snabba Cash II”), Charlotte Riley (“World Without End”), Jonas Armstrong (BBC TV’s “Robin Hood”), Franz Drameh (“Attack the Block”), Masayoshi Haneda (“Emperor”) and Tony Way (“The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo”).

EDGE OF TOMORROW

 The behind-the-scenes team includes Academy Award®-winning director of photography Dion Beebe (“Memoirs of a Geisha”), production designer Oliver Scholl (“Jumper,” “Independence Day”), editor James Herbert (“Sherlock Holmes,” “Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows”), costume designer Kate Hawley (“Pacific Rim”), and Oscar®-nominated visual effects supervisor Nick Davis (“The Dark Knight”).  The music is by Christophe Beck (“Frozen”).

Pictures presents, in association with Village Roadshow Pictures, In association with RatPac-Dune Entertainment, a 3 Arts Production, in association with Viz Productions, LLC, a Doug Liman Film, “Edge of Tomorrow.”  Opening worldwide beginning June 6, 2014, the film will be distributed in 2D and 3D in select theatres and IMAX by Warner Bros.

So you’ve heard about #NuffnangLovin’!

We had our very first Nuffnang Lovin’ at Aloft KL Sentral’s W xyz Bar on 25th April 2014. Refer to our previous post here to find out more about Aloft KL Sentral. :)

Keep reading to find out what went on that evening.

NNL

Let’s get started with some pictures of the place and participants!

Meet Denise and Eric, our ushers of the day, at the registration table.

Upon registration, our Nuffnangers also had a chance to take pictures at the photo wall before entering W xyz Bar! Oh! Remember to have a look at our Nuffnang Lovin’ photo album on our Facebook page. Spot and tag yourselves! :)

Right at W xyz Bar, it was The Light Fantastic welcoming and greeting us with a beautiful performance. From the short Q&A session by our Emcee of the night, Adrian, and we were told that it was actually their last performance. BUT, they’ll be back to perform again from 28th May onwards.

3

While waiting for the event to start, Kendrick and Christy had a friendly pool match. Guess who won the match! :P

4

Shortly after, we started the night by having our Nuffies do a short introduction about themselves.

IMG_0107

To get everyone warmed up for the night, we played the Nuffnang version of speed dating. Here’s the deal, those in the outer circle, were required to keep moving in an anti-clockwise direction (right). At each stop, they would have to introduce themselves and interact with whoever was in front of them for 5 seconds.

After that ice-breaking session, it’s dinner time! Our dinner was served canapé style; the best way to have dinner while socialising with others without focusing too much on either one.

Then, we were given an introductory and welcome speech by the GM of Aloft Hotels, Mr Paolo.

IMG_0103

And…

GUESS WHAT?!

5

Aloft KL Sentral got Paperplane Pursuit to perform for us too! Their performance was so lively and catchy and they definitely got everyone’s attention!

Paperplane Pursuit, a band of 5 led by John O, the energetic lead singer, is a pop band based in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. First gained recognition in 2010, and they are getting more popular than ever! :D Go and check them out on their Paperplane Pursuit YouTube channel.

We were also given a tour around Aloft to be “introduced” to their re:mix lounge, re:fuel, in touch, Aloha Desk, and of course, XBOX Kinect. :P

UP UP UP WE GOOO!

But first, #letustakeaselfie. That’s what they always say, if you can’t beat them, join them!

Next stop ─ Aloft’s MAI Bar, at the roof top! It is an elongated and spacious bar, aesthetically defined by Tiki culture decorations. We became even more amazed when we saw its swimming pool and open space area for its guests to chill and socialise at the outside. At the end of the open space area, there’s a perfect spot for a bird’s-eye view of Kuala Lumpur city.

We then decided to spend some time at MAI bar since there was so much to see.

As usual, group photos are a must for us! Since the view and the lighting were a perfect match, we decided to get it done there. :)

Then, we had a Nuffies Sharing Session conducted by Janice, our Nuffnang Community Executive, Adrian, our Nuffnang Talent Executive, and Michelle, our Assistant Country Manager, back at W xyz Bar to share tips, information, and more about blogging.

7

Coming up… Time for more fun of course!

Nuffnangers were divided into 3 groups and each was led by a Nuffie.

8

Every group was given an envelope which contained a list of items that they were required to get. And the team that finishes that task first would be the ONLY team going back with prizes.

Drum roll please!

3rd place, the slowest yet steadiest! Goes to… Team 1!

Holla Nuffnangers! We think May may just be the most awesome month in the first half of year. Well, we started the month with a public holiday for a start, but it’s only going to get better, especially for the BOLD ones…let us break the news to you!

May is all about celebrating people who make truly BOLD choices in life, and since bold people are Made of More (like GUINNESS), they’ll be rewarded with a fine pint of the black brew! Say what? 

gg

“Made of More” is a campaign by GUINNESS, rewarding the BOLD ones who helped make GUINNESS a premium brand that it is today. Furthermore, it’s about celebrating the quality of people who enjoy this fine black brew.

Here’s how it works:

GUINNESS is sending their trucks to tour Klang Valley all of May to give out FREE pints of GUINNESS to bold people. All you need to do is, leave work on time and come on down to the #madeofmore truck at 17:59 and you’ll be rewarded with a pint of GUINNESS black brew for free! And IF you’re feeling extra bold, bring your boss along too! Sounds too good to be true? Well… we Nuffies made a bold move to check it out last Tuesday.

So we saw the GUINNESS truck parked at Avenue K during lunch last week and “invited” our boss (Hi, Tim!) for drinks that night.

IMG-20140506-WA0005

To get the free pint though, we had to get it between 6-7PM only…..so we left office on time at 5.30PM and head down to Avenue K!

 IMG-20140506-WA0001

   Once the digital clock struck 17:59, the party begun!

DSC_0479

 We were first introduced to the idea behind the #madeofmore movement by GUINNESS.

IMG_0519

 Then…we created quite a commotion at the truck, Instagraming away while in queue for GUINNESS! Bold passers-by got rewarded by turning up at the truck on time with us.

Fotor050815098

Here we are, with our drinks and smiles!

Fotor0508111855

So, that was our bold story one fine Tuesday. Don’t miss your chance to catch the GUINNESS #madeofmore truck at their next stops!

  • Malones @ Sooka Sentral –  9th of May (Friday, 17:59 onwards 6PM – 7PM)
  • Scott Garden, Kuchai Lama – 16th of May (Friday, 17:59 onwards 6PM – 7PM)

For more exciting activities and find out how GUINNESS will reward your boldnessstay tuned to facebook.com/guinnessmalaysia. Good news are meant to be shared, so spread it with your friends! *Cheers*

Marvels are coming to us one by one! X-Men is here and he is going back to the past this time. What happened to the characters at the end of First Class will be continued with more exciting scenes t you to be on the edge of the seat. Are you ready for it?

Xmen_DOFP_1Sht_22MAY_Sentinels

 Synopsis:

IH7A1611.CR2

The ultimate X-Men ensemble fights a war for the survival of the species across two time periods in X-MEN: DAYS OF FUTURE PAST.

AT5E1456.CR2

The beloved characters from the original “X-Men” film trilogy join forces with their younger selves from “X-Men: First Class,” in an epic battle that must change the past – to save our future.

1009_sl_DF-09307_v04_RS

We will also have cast like Bingbing Fan, Jennifer Lawrence, Nicholas Hault, James McAvoy, etc. in this movie which makes this movie even more interesting and exciting.

DF-26952R_RS

Bryan Singer, the visionary director who brought us the original X-Men movies, says Days of Future Past will take viewers on an emotional ride. “The stakes are high, not just for the world and the future but also the stakes of some of the characters,” says the director. “Clearly there was enormous fragmentation between the characters that happened at the end of First Class. That left the characters on a certain path. This movie will show you where those paths lead.” (source EW.com)
