On Monday 2 November the British High Commission together with Sony Pictures Entertainment, hosted an impressive gala premiere to celebrate the release of Bond’s latest movie, SPECTRE, in Malaysia.
Her Excellency Vicki Treadell, British High Commissioner to Malaysia, welcomed ministers, prominent business leaders and local celebrities to an elegant cocktail reception at the Centre Court of The Pavilion, a luxury shopping mall in the heart of Kuala Lumpur.
With a Bond-themed display showcasing the finest British luxury and style, guests enjoyed ice-cold Belvedere martinis, Bollinger champagne and beer courtesy of Heineken, while admiring the luxurious Jaguar, Land Rover and Aston Martin vehicles on show.
It was in fact a double celebration for Aston Martin as they opened the evening’s celebrations with the announcement that they are returning to the Malaysian market in partnership with Wearnes Automotive Group.
As the Gillette sponsored reception drew to a close, guests made their way up to a special premiere screening of SPECTRE at Golden Screen Cinema, ahead of the film’s official release in Malaysia on 5 November 2015.
