GREEN -- The New Rage in Town!
Don't get mad! Get Green.
Singapore, 22 May 2003 - StarHub mobile customers will make others turn green with envy with HULK goodies available exclusively from StarHub. As an official partner for the film adaptation of the classic Marvel Comics series movie, StarHub's HULK goodies galore can temporarily satisfy the appetites of HULK fans who cannot wait for the action adventure flick to open in Singapore cinemas on 19 June.
HULK is a big screen adaptation of the Marvel comic book "The HULK". It stars Eric Bana and Oscar-winner Jennifer Connelly and is directed by Ang Lee, the acclaimed director of "Crouching Tiger Hidden Dragon". This live-action feature film contains all the elements of a blockbuster visual-effects-intensive super hero movie with the spectacular special effects produced by Academy Award® winning Industrial Light & Magic (George Lucas' special effects company).
"Green goes with Green! This is an excellent matching of giants which will see StarHub, the local green giant partnering with the biggest and most anticipated blockbuster this summer, HULK. UIP is again proud and excited to be partners with StarHub in another blockbuster promotion. It is going to be a real big treat to see the HULK smash its way into Singapore cinemas this 19 June," said Mr Nicholas Yong, Managing Director of United International Pictures (UIP).
"StarHub has always tied-up with blockbuster hits from UIP and this helps create yet another innovative platform for us to provide exclusive products and services to our valued customers. It is most apt for us to be the official partner for a movie like HULK as we share the passion of a superhero when we endeavour to be customer champions. Similarly, we also see ourselves as a partner or even a catalyst that empowers our customers to unleash that potential within themselves. The slew of StarHub treats we have lined up will certainly delight HULK fans," said Mr K C Lai, General Manager of Consumer Sales at StarHub.
From 23 May, fans can visit HULK microsite and mutate their way through HULK movie information, movie trailers and online contests.
