Following a competitive pitch, HWBK will partner with Fox Home Entertainment’s PR agency Frank PR to deliver an integrated strategy designed to support the digital and Blu-ray/DVD launch of X-Men: Apocalypse, the latest instalment in the successful X-Men franchise. Campaign activity will cover a range of initiatives across social media, content, activation and communications amplification.

Kristen McGrath, associate director of publicity and promotions at Twentieth Century Fox Entertainment, said: “The HWBK team not only have expertise in both traditional and digital media activations, but have proven themselves to be innovative and strategic thinkers. With their unique creative approach the highly anticipated release of X-Men: Apocalypse on DVD, Blu-ray and Digital is sure to be a compelling campaign.”

Emma-Jane (EJ) Granleese, managing partner of HWBK, said the team is thrilled to be collaborating with Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment.

“Our exciting new partnership is a clear testament to our team’s strengths and unique offering.

This is a fantastic opportunity and we are delighted to be working with such a high calibre client who shares both our values and our commitment to creating great work.”

The win is the latest in a line of new business partnerships, including Steptember (Cerebral Palsy Alliance), Brown Forman and Merlin Entertainments Groups’ SEA LIFE Sydney Aquarium.
