Skype is connecting military troops with the stars of the upcoming blockbuster,Marvel’s “Iron Man 3,” through a special live video call from a custom-built ‘Skype Suite’ at the film’s premiere at the El Capitan Theatre in Los Angeles. Through an oversized monitor, Skype will allow the troops stationed at Joint Base Lewis -McChord located near Tacoma, Washington, to virtually attend the red carpet and take part in the Hollywood premiere excitement. The troops will also interact with the stars of Marvel’s “Iron Man 3” via Skype and ask about their experience in the film.
Adding to the excitement, families of several of the troops stationed at the base will be reunited with their loved ones via Skype as they walk the red carpet. Joint Base Lewis-McChord will also host its own red carpet arrival at the base, followed by an exclusive screening of Marvel’s “Iron Man 3”, airing simultaneously with the Los Angeles premiere.
