I’ve been waiting for Marvel Studios’ Avengers: Infinity War since they announced this movie and who will be in it, so I’m beyond thrilled that it’s finally opening in Philippine cinemas today, April 25, two days before they even release it in the US!
Besides being a Marvel fan since I was a kid playing with Marvel trading cards with my brothers (Thanos was my favorite card to use in our game—for some reason, I always end up winning when I do!), I’m a huge fan of Robert Downey Jr. (Iron Man), Benedict Cumberbatch (Doctor Strange), and Mark Ruffalo (Hulk), so my ovaries are absolutely bursting with excitement for this movie, haha! In case you didn’t know, the movie also stars Tom Holland (Spider-Man), Chris Pratt (Peter Quill/Star-Lord from Guardians of the Galaxy), Chris Evans (Captain America), Paul Bettany (Vision), Chris Hemsworth (Thor), Bradley Cooper (as the voice of Rocket Raccoon, also from Guardians), and a lot more, I’m just so overwhelmed by the star-studded cast!
An unprecedented cinematic journey ten years in the making and spanning the entire Marvel Cinematic Universe, Marvel Studios’ Avengers: Infinity War brings to the screen the ultimate, deadliest showdown of all time. The Avengers and their superhero allies must be willing to sacrifice all in an attempt to defeat the powerful Thanos (Josh Brolin) before his blitz of devastation and ruin puts an end to the universe. Thanos’ goal is to collect all six Infinity Stones, artifacts of unimaginable power, and use them to inflict his twisted will on all of reality.
That said, I’ll definitely be among the first to line up for tickets at the Robinsons in Jaro, Iloilo City, where my husband and I always watch movies. And I’m so glad that we can now seamlessly purchase tickets for the latest movies in one of the biggest cinema chains in the country, thanks to the new partnership between Robinsons Movieworld (RMW) and the Philippine’s top mobile e-payment scheme, GCash Scan-to-Pay.
Robinsons Movieworld has now embraced the GCash cashless e-payment system in all of its branches nationwide (yes, including Iloilo City, I’m so happy!). And as part of the newly forged partnership, Robinsons Movieworld, together with GCash, will carry out more than the usual promos to its customers. Those who use GCash Scan-To-Pay to purchase their tickets Mondays to Thursdays of April and May will enjoy a 20% cashback. I tried this out this month, and I really did get my money back on my GCash wallet a few days after we watched a movie!
To use the GCash Scan-To-Pay feature (available on iPhone or an Android smartphones only), just download and update to the latest version of the GCash App. Register for an account and fund your GCash wallet at any of over 12,000 GCash Partner Outlets nationwide—which includes Robinsons Business Centers. Once funds are loaded in the GCash wallet, swipe to the left or choose Pay QR, then Scan QR and point the smartphone’s camera to the RMW’s QR code to scan. And just like that, you’ll get your movie tickets!
