Guests of the premiere snapped pictures from the red carpet at the Samsung Selfie Station, equipped with the new Samsung Galaxy S® 6 and Galaxy S 6 edge.
As a sponsor of the world premiere and promotional partner of the film’s release, Audi featured an all-new 2016 TTS Coupe display on the red carpet. A special guest drove a 2016 RS7 from the “Avengers Fleet” to the top of the carpet, and cast members and filmmakers arrived in a fleet of chauffeured A8L and Q7 TDI clean diesel vehicles.
On the red carpet, UAE-based Al Ahli Holding Group (AAHG) unveiled its special premium Hulkbuster collectibles manufactured by its Singapore-based subsidiary, Comicave Studios. This was the first instance ever for a Middle Eastern-based company to launch a product at a high-profile red carpet premiere of a Hollywood blockbuster. The Hulkbuster collectibles were also showcased at the after-party event.
On the red carpet, Harley-Davidson featured Project LiveWire™ and five new 2015 motorcycles–the Street™750 and bikes from the Dark Custom ™ line of motorcycles. After the premiere screening, guests joined the cast at Ohm Lab for the after-party.
Synopsis: Marvel Studios presents “Avengers: Age of Ultron,” the epic follow-up to the biggest Super Hero movie of all time. When Tony Stark tries to jumpstart a dormant peacekeeping program, things go awry and Earth’s Mightiest Heroes, including Iron Man, Captain America, Thor, The Incredible Hulk, Black Widow and Hawkeye, are put to the ultimate test as the fate of the planet hangs in the balance. As the villainous Ultron emerges, it is up to the Avengers to stop him from enacting his terrible plans, and soon uneasy alliances and unexpected action pave the way for an epic and unique global adventure.
Written and directed by Joss Whedon and produced by Kevin Feige, Marvel’s “Avengers: Age of Ultron” is based on the ever-popular Marvel comic book series “The Avengers,” first published in 1963.
