April 4, 2014 Destination Global No Comments Email Email

“With great power comes great responsibility” — The Amazing Spider-Man 2 grand release will be showing starting May 1st in Hong Kong, sweeping the Spider-Man craze across Harbour City.

Harbour City partners with Sony Pictures for this release, bringing in the classic movie set of American Hero Spider-Man to Ocean Terminal’s outdoor forecourt. The amazingly realistic New York setting is designed by the famous set and interior designer Andy Tong and this display will be held outdoors so that the public and tourists can personally experience and immerse themselves in the streets of New York alongside the New York superhero.

No one would oppose labelling Spider-Man as an unsung hero. He shoulders the responsibility to the world wearing his spider suit, but once that suit has been removed, he is no different from an average person. The Hong Kong film industry’s stunt actors also serve as unsung heroes making big contributions behind the scenes. The “Hong Kong Stuntman Association” was established in the early 1990s, and have been committed to uniting the stuntmen community, training involvement, education, in order for better understanding of the ranks of stuntmen. Harbour City will work with the Hong Kong Stuntman Association, delivering an exciting group of weekend activities, including staged scenes of the Spider-Man action performances at the Ocean Terminal forecourt — taking the audience into a realistic setting of the movie itself.

Towards the centre of the scene is the renowned New York City yellow cab stuck in a serious accident, and in the nick of time a giant 12 foot Spider-Man comes quickly to the scene to save the day. Spider-Man will use his signature move shooting out spider webs. There will be a giant light box with Spider-Man’s name, bringing viewers into the action, and creating a classic movie scene. The main entrance of Harbour City includes a 5 meter tall giant Spider-Man poster, giving you a stunning visual effect, creating anticipation for the coming Spider-Man movie.
