Max Brings HBO Original, THE PENGUIN To San Diego, Turning The Gaslamp Quarter Into Gotham

Takeover Includes Immersive Fan Experiences, A Cast Panel, Global Trailer Debut, Partnerships, And More

Max will bring Gotham to life in San Diego to celebrate the highly anticipated upcoming HBO(R) Original series THE PENGUIN, starring Colin Farrell, debuting this September. Starting Thursday, July 25, THE PENGUIN will begin its takeover with an exclusive experience by recreating Gotham's famed Iceberg Lounge, deploying a Gotham Ice truck in front of the San Diego Convention Center, and partnering with local businesses for bespoke giveaways. Additionally, Max will host a panel in Hall H featuring the cast and executive producers of THE PENGUIN, where the official trailer for the series will premiere.

"We are incredibly excited to tap into the rich and passionate fanbase in San Diego this year by introducing them to our new series, THE PENGUIN," said Pia Barlow, Executive Vice President, Originals Marketing, HBO and Max. "With our in-world activations, fans will have the chance to engross themselves in the underground world of Oz Cobbs's Gotham, picking up where we left off in Matt Reeves' 'The Batman,' as we look to generate excitement for the series premiering this September."

Full details on THE PENGUIN takeover can be found below:

· On Friday, July 26 and Saturday, July 27, Max, in partnership with Giant Spoon, will transform the Bloom Nightclub into Gotham's famed Iceberg Lounge. Upon arrival at "The Iceberg Lounge" Experience, guests will enter the "Iceberg Descent," created in partnership with BUCK and VT Pro Design, an immersive experience filled with special effects, haptic technology, interactivity and exclusive content displayed on Samsung big screen TVs. This multi-sensorial, subterranean descent drops users into Gotham's notorious Iceberg Lounge lobby to navigate through the wreckage left by The Riddler at the end of The Batman (2022) film to reach the party deeper within.

· Fans will party with Oz's crew by venturing through the dark corners of the club for a chance to be inducted into the Penguin's inner circle... if they dare. This multi-room experience offers complimentary drinks, live DJ sets, exclusive giveaways including a Jefferson's Bourbon tasting, and photo opportunities including Oz's iconic purple Maserati - giving partygoers an unprecedented glimpse into Gotham's criminal underworld. By exploring the main club, guests can discover a password that will give them access to the inner sanctum, 44 Below, the club within the club, diving deeper into the world of THE PENGUIN.

· Max is providing 21+ adult fans with three ways to get a chance to receive an invitation to "The Iceberg Lounge" from today through Saturday, July 27:

1. Fans can now register on 1iota.com for an exclusive invitation to Gotham's hottest nightclub, available on a first-come, first-served basis.
