#SpiderManHomecoming Screening, Press Junket, Goodwill DIY Spider-Man Challenge, Sailing Around NY, Sony Experience

6 Jul

I just want to start by saying thank you to Sony for the best Spider-Man Homecoming Press Junket ever!!! 

There’s nothing like getting that email that says we’d like to invite you to….

It started with a screening of Spider-Man Homecoming. I took my 14 year old son with me and we enjoyed the movie so much. I was like “did you see that and ohhh that was nice” and I was jumping in my seat. It’s great for teens. I also took my 10 year old daughter to another screening and she enjoys it as well. Concession snacks were given to us and it was a nice comfortable theater. 

Haven’t seen Michael Keaton in a while so it was good seeing him play the villain Vulture. When you have a family to support and protect and no one cares or wants to listen you will do anything to provide for them and that’s what made him evil. Can I just say I liked his costume which would make a good ride at an amusement park. 

Tom Holland played 15 year old Peter Parker (Spider-Man). I enjoyed the storyline how Peter Parker was determined to show Tony Stark that he can fight crime and was ready to be an Avenger. He took on lots of bad guys but that didn’t stop him. 

Jacob Batalon played Spider-Man’s best friend, (sidekick) Ned. He was hilarious. He’s one of those friends you want in school. He’s there for you sometimes for good and sometimes you’re like Nooooo why did you say that? He’s a funny guy in person and real down to earth and sweet.

Zendaya played Michelle. I loved her character who played a loner but smart girl. She always had these one liner remarks. Love this line: 

Zendaya: I can’t believe you guys are at this lame party

Ned: You’re here too

Zendaya: Am I? 

When you see the clip you’ll be laughing too. I noticed Michelle might have a crush on Peter Parker. Hmmmm. Anyway, Zendaya is beautiful and sweet too. 

I enjoyed the press Junket at the Whitby Hotel with the cast and they enjoyed taking selfies with me (especially Robert Downey Jr.) Take a look at my pics below. After the press Junket we boarded a private bus to the Goodwill to compete in a DIY challenge. We were given a $25 gift card and had 15 minutes to shop for clothing to make a Spider-Man costume. I made my daughter a SpiderMan costume. She enjoyed dressing up like Spider-Man the girl version and posing for pics. We love it!! Pics below. Once we rung up our items without going over $25 we took our clothes and got back on the bus and headed to Chelsea Piers to sail around Manhattan on the Adirondack and explore the sights that Spider-Man took on in the movie like the Staten Island Ferry. I love boats and I even got behind the wheel. The captain asked if I’ve drove boats before and I told him this was my second boat I drove and I think it’s gonna be a new hobby of mine. It was a beautiful day. Food and drinks were served and just a great time. 

​​Back at the hotel a sketch artist drew our pictures with the special powered they we told him we wanted to have. Of course I wanted to teleport. I didn’t get the full pic of what he created. It was supposed to be sent to my email but I never received so I only got a picture of the unfinished version. The pad he was using was from Dell. I would be on that all day. I love it. All the Dell computers were amazing. I also got video of myself falling off the side of a building. Spider-Man was supposed to rescue me but he was no where to be seen so I was screaming my lungs out. I obviously made it or I wouldn’t have written this post. Lol.

The next event we went to was at Sony Square for the Spider-Man Homecoming VR Experience. We took pics on the side of a building and the kids got to meet and take pics with Peter Parker ( Tom Holland) and Spider-Man this time. There’s also displays of the outfits worn in the movie and the weapons. The VR is fun for teens during adults  to experience. My daughter was able to try it though. 

What will you be doing on July 7th? Hopefully you’ll already have your tickets and go check out this amazing movie. I saw it twice and will probably see it again. Check out @spidermanmovie on Instagram

Disclosure: Hosted by Sony. Thanks again to Sony for all these amazing opportunities for Five Little Words. It’s always a pleasure to work with you. Opinions are mine and my kids 100% as always. Swag was given.
