A few days ago, I admit, I was getting a bit bummed out about not getting any screening invites to Marvel’s Avengers: Age of Ultron . Good thing I got a call from my friends at Globe asking if I wanted to watch the midnight screening of yesterday afternoon–and as fast as Quicksilver can lace up his running shoes I answered Hell Yeah! (but in a nice- trying-to-hide-my-excitement kinda way of course!)
Turns out I was among the hundreds of lucky Globe subscribers who got to watch FIRST and FREE as Globe Telecom held several advanced screening of Avengers at select IMAX theaters in SM North EDSA, SM Megamall, SM Mall of Asia and SM Southmall.
All Globe and TM customers who registered to any GoSURF promo and Tattoo customers who availed of a Tattoo Home Broadband Plan from April 5 to 17, 2015 got the a chance to win movie tickets to the special advanced screening of Marvel’s Avengers: Age of Ultron. The number of raffle entries is based on the value of the promo and the monthly service fee of the plan.
Meanwhile, postpaid customers who availed of the Samsung Galaxy S6 on myLifestyle Plan from April 8 to 18, 2015 will automatically received 2 tickets to the special advanced screening in IMAX theaters at SM Aura and SM City Cebu plus premium Avengers collectible items.
Finally, Tattoo Home customers who will subscribe to any of the new Tattoo Home Broadband Bundle such as the Regular Home Broadband (Plan 1299 to 2999) or Platinum Home Broadband (Plan 3749 to 9999) from April 19 to 24, 2015 will automatically get 4 tickets to the free movie weekend screening that will happen on April 25-26 at select IMAX theaters. Existing Tattoo Home customers who will upgrade to the new Tattoo Home Broadband Bundles will also get 6 free tickets to the screening.

So how was the movie?
It was 2 1/2 hours of PURE AWESOMENESS. They did put more emphasis on the human side/story of the each Avenger adding a bit more drama to pace the action scenes. The action scenes were also much better although some looked a bit too “comical.”
I’d leave the review part to the critics, but know that every peso you spend will be worth it 😀
Instead here are 1o things you should watch for when watching Avengers: Age of Ultron
1. “Mutants” don’t exist instead they are called “Enhanced” He’s Fast, she’s weird. But what really is Scarlet Witch’s–err Wanda’s powers? Hmmm. Scarecrow/JeanGrey/Dr.Strange?
2. Someone will get a “Loki” pounding
3. You have to meet Veronica.
4. Hulkbuster vs Hulk is short but epic.
5. Not many like Hawkeye, but you will “love” him and his “secrets” in this movie.
6. There will be flirting. Love is in the air and its Green.
7. Stan Lee will party with the Avengers.
8. Lots of character cameos from other Avenger movies (Thor, Iron Man, Captain America)
9. Well, that was a “Quick” appearance
10. Someone dies and you’ll probably cry (a bit).
11. What is “in” Vision’s head?
12. Thor will take his clothes off. (just had to mention that because of the collective sigh of women)
14. Will the FOUR new members be in the next Avengers movie?
15. There is a mid-end credits but no Spidey sighting.
