Transformers: Rise Of The Beasts Rolls Out With World Premiere At Marina Bay Sands

The cast and crew of Transformers: Rise Of The Beasts rolled out on Saturday (May 27) at Marina Bay Sands for the world premiere of the highly anticipated movie.

After braving a brief but heavy downpour, loyal fans — who had been waiting for hours near ArtScience Museum — were rewarded with a gorgeous view of a rainbow and a meet-and-greet session with director Steven Caple Jr, long-time Transformers showrunners and producers Lorenzo Di Bonaventura and Mark Vahradian, as well as cast members Anthony Ramos, Dominique Fishback and Tobe Nwigwe.

A night to remember: (from left) Marina Bay Sands' Chief Operating Officer Paul Town, with Transformers: Rise of the Beasts director Steven Caple Jr., actors Anthony Ramos, Dominique Fishback, and Tobe Nwigwe, and producers Lorenzo Di Bonaventura, and Mark Vahradian. 

Also gracing the occasion were Marina Bay Sands’ chief operating officer Paul Town and over 150 local media personalities.

The event marked the first global premiere of a movie in Singapore in three years. In an interview with CNA, Town said the premiere shows the world "what Singapore is capable of" and "allows (Marina Bay Sands) to engage with the community".

Welcome to Earth: A 4.5m life-size stature of Mirage, a new character in Transformers: Rise of the Beasts, made its Asian debut at the entrance of ArtScience Museum, following the unveiling of Optimus Prime and Optimus Primal at Gardens by the Bay in March. Pete Davidson voiced the character in the movie. 

The red carpet event literally ended on a high note as everyone joined the cast and crew to launch a dazzling light-and-pyrotechnic display.

Spectators across Marina Bay were treated to a three-and-a-half minute-long original light show, complete with state-of-the-art video mapping choreographed to a score from the film. The entire audio-visual creation was given extra pizzazz with a colourful and dazzling sky-high orchestration of pyrotechnics illuminating the bay area.

After the premiere, Marina Bay Sands remained aglow in Optimus Prime’s signature red and blue colours until 11pm. Laser projections featuring the Transformers logo were intricately tracked on the surrounding buildings, while scenes from the movie were projected onto the facade of ArtScience Museum.
