Microsoft Lumia and Uber broker a unique partnership to celebrate the release of new blockbuster Batman v Superman: Dawn Of Justice
The cinema event of the year sees two of the greatest comic book heroes, namely Superman and Batman, going toe to toe in Batman v Superman: Dawn Of Justice. Microsoft South Africa has partnered with Uber and Warner Bros. Pictures to provide fans with a cinematic experience to match the phenomenal stature of this titanic clash.
“Fifty lucky people in both Cape Town and Johannesburg will get to attend the preview of this 3D blockbuster on Wednesday 23 March with a friend,” says Michelle Wyne, Microsoft Marketing Manager for Mobile Devices. “Like Bruce Wayne, they will get the red carpet treatment, kicking off with ride in style in an UberBLACK.”
This chauffeured ride will take them straight to the preview venue, where they will be able to step into the shoes of Clark Kent by chronicling some of their favourite moments in the photo booth for possible inclusion in the social pages of the Daily Planet. Attendees also stand a chance of winning instant prizes in the Microsoft Lumia zone and can set the stage for the evening’s main event by challenging their friends at the Xbox Station.

From director Zack Snyder (“Man of Steel”) comes “Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice,” starring Oscar winner Ben Affleck (“Argo”) as Batman/Bruce Wayne and Henry Cavill (“Man of Steel,” “The Man from U.N.C.L.E.”) as Superman/Clark Kent in the characters’ first big-screen pairing. Fearing the actions of a god-like Super Hero left unchecked, Gotham City’s own formidable, forceful vigilante takes on Metropolis’s most revered, modern-day saviour, while the world wrestles with what sort of hero it really needs. And with Batman and Superman at war with one another, a new threat quickly arises, putting mankind in greater danger than it’s ever known before.
Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice is being releases by Times Media Films and releases in cinemas nationwide on 24 March.
