22 April - Movie Carnival 2006 is here!
April 22, 2006, Kuala Lumpur. Malaysia's first all-movie showcase and preview of everything and anything movies opened its doors to thousands of eager movie fans at Berjaya Times Square today.
True to its tagline, “Everything, Anything Movies”, visitors to the Movie Carnival were treated to an eye popping display of movie clips and stills, movie merchandise sales and auction, movie PC games and even "Superman Returns" themed vehicles. There were plenty of photo opportunities available due to some impressive exhibits like the 16-feet tall "X-Men: The Last Stand" Showcase and the "Poseidon" Showcase which utilised the latest visual effect “FX” technology. Print kiosks were made available at strategic locations at the event floor for visitors to get instant prints at a nominal rate.
Visitors also had the chance to catch the latest movie trailers and featurettes of upcoming movies at the mini-theatre which was specially constructed for the carnival to showcase the latest audio visual materials. A filming set also drew eager filmcrew and star wannabes as well as the more serious audition and casting candidates.
Another big hit at the Movie Carnival were the appearances of over twenty movie characters from films such as "Star Wars", "The Lord of the Rings", "Pirates of the Caribbean", "Harry Potter" and "Ice Age 2". Superhero characters like V for Vendetta, Cyclops ("X-Men") and Batman also joined in the exciting parade.
The Movie Carnival 2006 continues tomorrow 10am to 10pm, 23 April 2006
