Johnnie Walker Joy Ambassador for Nigeria, Don Jazzy is slated to attend the premiere of the Gentleman’s Wager II movie premiere in Rome, with global joy ambassador and Oscar-nominee Jude Law, as well as highly influential media professionals from different parts of the world.
Don Jazzy and the media influencers will be treated to a luxury welcome dinner hosted by Oscar-nominee, Giancarlo Giannini and veteran Grammy Award winning Artist, Tom Jones and a drinks reception, with an exclusive tasting of Johnnie Walker Blue Label hosted by Oscar-nominee Jude Law.
In true Johnnie Walker Blue Label luxury fashion, Don Jazzy will arrive at the drive in cinema for the premiere of the Gentlemen’s Wager II in a luxury classic car driven by the star himself and will be amongst the selected few to watch the Gentleman’s Wager II movie for the first time.
The Gentleman’s Wager II stars Oscar-nominated actors Jude Law and Giancarlo Giannini who will be accompanied by acclaimed Chinese actress Zhao Wei. The film continues with the friendly rivalry theme between Jude Law and Giannini Giancarlo as seen in the first Gentleman’s Wager movie.
The sequel to the Gentleman’s Wager centres on Jude Law trying to win a gorgeous classic Delahaye 135s vintage racing car, a Walker heirloom, which has been in the family since the late 1930s. The classic car is sought after by Law who attempts to win it through a race to one of Formula One’s iconic tracks – Monaco.
The film is part of Johnnie Walker’s “keep Walking’ mantra which uses the strapline ‘Joy Will Take You Further’. This is echoed in the film, when Jude Law exhibits joy from stopping to help people during his long journey from Rome to Monaco.
The whole idea of the movie is to push the Johnnie Walker theme of happiness as the fuel to success rather than the hard grind. At the very least, you can imagine yourself cruising in a rare and beautiful convertible while trying to escape your mundane day with a bottle of Johnnie Walker Blue Label whisky.
The movie will be launched internationally on the 31st of October 2015.
