[UPDATE]: The event has been postponed to 19 August 2016, 8:45 PM at GV Plaza
The largest cinema operator in Singapore, Golden Village (GV), is making an attempt to enter Singapore’s record books for hosting the largest gathering of cosplayers in Singapore’s history at a One Piece movie event.
On 11 August, GV is calling on all anime and manga fans to come dressed as their favourite character for the One Piece Film Gold Singapore Book of Records—an event that all One Piece fans and cosplayer fanatics should not miss:
The event, which aims to unite all One Piece fans and celebrate Japanese pop culture, will feature the screening of One Piece Film Gold, the 13th movie from the One Piece franchise.
First gaining prominence as a manga, One Piece was first published in the magazine Weekly Shonen Jump in July 1997, and has since spawned a television series, video games and several successful movies that have been warmly received by fans all over the globe. The One Piece fascination reaches fever pitch this summer with the
release of One Piece Film Gold, which sold as much as 1.7 million tickets in Japan in nine days, surpassing the box office performance of some of the biggest Hollywood movies.
The film, which captures the Straw Hat Pirates as they battle a new nemesis, has been screened in more than 740 cinemas, the biggest for any Japanese film to date.
I am a big fan of One Piece too and had supported their run event in Singapore earlier this year. I am looking forward to catch this movie on the big screen.
For this giant cosplay event, GV is pulling out all the stops to ensure it is roaring success.
Fans can buy tickets for S$58 (GV Movie Club Members) and S$62 (Public), giving them the opportunity to watch the movie as well as receive limited edition movie merchandise such as a One Piece T-shirt, porcelain mug and mobile phone chip
A reminder—only fans who are dressed as One Piece characters will be allowed entry, so be sure to dress in your best costumes before heading to GV!
You can be Luffy, Roronoa Zoro, Nami or anyone from One Piece—take your pick!
This is a once-in-a-lifetime chance to be part of history, so buy your tickets now.
The Straw Hat Pirates set sail and land in Gran Tesoro, an independent country that serves as the home of the world’s greatest entertainment city, a place where well-known pirates, marines, and millionaires throughout the world gather in an ‘absolute sanctuary’ that even the World Government can’t touch.
It is in Gran Tesoro that the Pirates meet the ruler of the country, the golden emperor Gild Tesoro, a powerful and ruthless man allied with pirates, marines, and even the World Government. He is about to take action to satisfy his bottomless ambition which may result in major changes in the New World.
