Cast of 'The Amazing Spider-Man 2' to Celebrate Earth Hour in Singapore!

By InCinemas  /  27 Feb 2014 (Thursday)

Yes, you heard us right! The director, producers, and cast (we're talking Andrew Garfield, Emma Stone & Jamie Foxx) of the highly anticipated upcoming motion picture The Amazing Spider-Man 2 will be coming to Singapore to celebrate this year's global flagship event for Earth Hour!

Earth Hour
Date: 29 March 2014
Time: 8.30pm
Venue: The Float@Marina Bay

Spider‐Man will join the film’s stars Andrew Garfield, Emma Stone, and Jamie Foxx in the event, helping to switch off the lights across Singapore’s signature Marina Bay skyline. The stars will also be throwing their support behind Earth Hour’s newly launched crowdfunding and crowdsourcing platform – Earth Hour Blue, with a message to individuals across the world to become Super Heroes for the planet.

Following the recent announcement that Spider‐Man is the first Super Hero ambassador for Earth Hour, Andrew Garfield and Emma Stone have chosen to back two separate projects on ‘Earth Hour Blue’, a new crowdfunding and crowdsourcing platform for the planet.

From its global headquarters in Singapore, Earth Hour has developed and launched Earth Hour Blue, a new crowdsourcing and crowdfunding platform that enables anyone to support environmental projects all over the world. The stars of the highly anticipated movie The Amazing Spider‐Man 2 are among the first backers and supporters of Earth Hour Blue.

Andrew Garfield, who plays Peter Parker/Spider‐Man, is supporting the Earth Hour Blue project ‘A Flame Called Hope’. The project aims to provide clean bio‐gas energy for local communities in Nepal, thereby reducing deforestation and providing an alternate means of livelihood for families in the area. “I’m proud Spider‐Man is the first Super Hero ambassador for Earth Hour because he shows we can all
be Super Heroes when we realize the power we all have,” says Andrew Garfield. “Earth Hour is a movement that has created massive impact around the world.”

Emma Stone, who plays Gwen Stacy in the film, has chosen to support the Earth Hour Blue ‘Puppy Protectors’ project, which aims to train sniffer dog puppies and their handlers to track animals, find wildlife crime scenes, detect illegal trade items, and chase down poachers with the rangers on the frontlines of Chitwan National Park, Nepal.

“Earth Hour gives you the power to inspire anyone, even if you’re just one person. There are great projects from the crowd, for the planet, happening all over the world,” says Emma Stone.

The Amazing Spider‐Man 2 director Marc Webb is backing the ‘Power up a Ranger’ project in Indonesia, which aims to provide better equipment for WWF Rangers protecting Indonesia’s endangered wildlife such as the Sumatran Tiger, Elephant, Rhino and Orangutan and their forest habitat. The director is also a judge in WWF Singapore’s film competition “Use Your Power”, which will engage young filmmakers across Singapore to produce engaging, innovative, and creative short films that show the connection between people and environmental issues.

WWF‐Singapore is also joining the Blue revolution through their crowdfunding campaign to expose and end the illegal sale of target wildlife species within Singapore. The organisation is also crowdsourcing pledges from individuals and organisations for local sustainability actions such as raising air conditioner temperatures by one degree Celsius, switching to LED lights and reducing the consumption of plastic bags.
