Manila Philippines, October 2015 – Ahead of the worldwide release of Albert R. Broccoli’s EON Productions, Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer Studios, and Sony Pictures Entertainment’s Spectre this autumn, Heineken® announced the latest chapter of its 17-year global partnership with the iconic James Bond film franchise.
Heineken®’s Spectre campaign invites consumers into the legendary world of James Bond. A new TVC starring Daniel Craig has been released globally and is available for viewing on http://heineken.com. The campaign in the Philippines will be supported by an exclusive movie premiere event on November 6, 2015 at SM Aura.
Fans of the film franchise will get a chance to open Bond’s world and attend the movie screening through a contest on Instagram and Twitter.
