Laser tag brings the taste of survival to 65

To promote for the Adam Driver’s latest survival thriller film 65,  Xstrike Dubai brought out the thrills with exclusive game modes. It offered the laser tag experience with 65 movie themed challenges for the public exclusively on February 26, 2023.

The three exclusive game modes: Prey vs. Predator, Dinosaurs vs. Humans, and Survival of the Fittest were made available to public on Sunday, February 26. Just like the movie, people had rely on their instincts and laser technology to survive this prehistoric challenge.

The Prey vs. Predators mode chose two players randomly to act as predators with unlimited ammunition and 1000 health points, while the rest acted as prey with limited ammunition and 100 health points, along with unlimited respawns. The Dinosaurs vs. Humans mission was played in two teams, each with a Dominator tube. The team was supposed to shoot the opposing team’s Dominator tube for it to change to their team’s color and earn a point, and the team with the most points won. Finally, the Survival of the Fittest mode was a free-for-all game where players were to score the max points by shooting each other within 65 seconds until the 2 remaining survivors with the most points were crowned victorious.

Exclusively distributed by Empire Entertainment, 65 is the latest survival thriller film produced by the legendary filmmaker of the Spider-Man trilogy and the Evil Dead franchise Sam Raimi and directed by the great writers of A Quiet Place, Scott Beck, and Bryan Woods.  In the movie, Adam Driver plays Mills, an interstellar pilot transporting a large group of passengers through space, when an accident kills all of his passengers but one – a young girl named Koa, played by Ariana Greenblatt. What Mills and Koa don’t know is that the planet they have landed on is our own Earth – 65 million years ago. As they begin their epic journey toward their only means of escape, they are hunted by vicious packs of dinosaurs that stalk them across a dangerous landscape.

Top scorers from all the missions won tickets to attend the premiere of 65 which took place on Wednesday, March 1 at Reel Cinemas, The Dubai Mall. The entire movie promotions and activations were carried out by PR agency ComCo MEA.

The survival thriller 65 is now showing in cinemas across the UAE and MENA region from the 2nd of March, with the Middle East being the first market to release it globally.
