SINGAPORE - The stars of The Huntsman: Winter's War are having a ball even before a glitzy red carpet event at Universal Studios Singapore to promote their new movie on Sunday (April 3).

Actress Jessica Chastain shared a hilarious Instagram clip of fellow Hollywood A-lister Chris Hemsworth attempting to get some private time during their flight from London to Singapore.

But the heartthrob, who plays Thor in the Marvel franchise, lacked the power to shut her out entirely with a seat divider, prompting his co-star to tease: "Don't you want to talk to me?"

Upon arrival, Chastain donned plastic gloves to tuck into her "favorite fruit" at Chinatown, with #durian to boot.

The two-time Oscar nominee also took in the sights of Little India, checking out a sari shop with "the gals", which she was #sarinotsari for.

The Gardens by the Bay was also on the itinerary for the 39-year-old, comparing its Flower Dome to the mythical Jurassic Park.

Chastain did not stop there. Next up was the S.E.A. Aquarium at Resorts World Sentosa, admiring one "little yellow fish" for standing out in the crowd.

She later shared a wefie with her staff, including celebrity hairstylist Renato Campora, "being cheesy" at the aquarium.

Chastain, Hemsworth and fellow lead Charlize Theron will certainly stand out when they meet fans later on Sunday at the red carpet.


Directed by Cedric Nicolas-Troyan, the fantasy action movie is a follow-up to Snow White And The Huntsman (2012), based on the characters from classic fairy tale Snow White.

In the new movie, Theron reprises her role as evil Queen Ravenna, who betrays her good sister Freya (Emily Blunt) with an unforgivable act. Hemsworth plays Eric the Huntsman while Chastain portrays Eric's lover Sara.
