Three decades after Ridley Scott's original "Blade Runner" film and it's still pretty tough to tell.
This week at Comic-Con fans are being treated to the ultimate immersive experience, transported onto the grimy neon streets of a futuristic Los Angeles straight out of the Oct. 6 sequel "Blade Runner 2049," directed by Denis Villeneuve ("Arrival).
How early is too early to start drinking when you’re at Comic-Con? According to the “Kingsman: The Golden Circle” panel, the answer is never.
Actors Taron Egerton, Colin Firth, Halle Berry, Channing Tatum, Jeff Bridges and Pedro Pascal took the stage at a packed Hall H with screenwriter Jane Goldman and “Kingsman" co-creator Dave Gibbons on Thursday morning for an action- and "alcohol"-fueled presentation to promote the upcoming film.
Playing a role in the upcoming “Kingsman” sequel is a bourbon called Statesman Reserve, which serves as the business that fronts for the U.S. equivalent of the Kingsman organization.
Barb Holland may have perished in Season 1 of "Stranger Things," but her memory — and #JusticeForBarb — live on at Comic-Con.
A candlelit shrine to Barb's memory is the first sight that greets fans inside Netflix's intricately detailed installation at Comic-Con, where you also can visit the New York streets of Marvel's "Defenders" and step inside the ghoulish, gritty world of their upcoming original film, "Bright."
Flowers, sympathy cards and childhood photos of the Hawkins high schooler line the memorial, where you also can get a glimpse of props from the show: Barb's pink binder, her glasses, that can of beer she didn't want to shotgun in the first place ...
The street team for Starz's "Outlander" hard at work at San Diego Comic-Con.
It's Thursday morning at San Diego Comic-Con and already street teams are hard at work hyping their metaphorical wares.
Several strapping young men took to the streets to promote Starz's time-traveling action drama "Outlander" wearing only their clan-aligned tartan kilts and (hopefully) fake tattoos dedicated to Claire and Jamie Fraser and other show-related ephemera.
Accompanied by bagpipes, the crew stomped and clapped with great intensity (and muscle-tone). No longer marketing to the superhero fanboy, Comic-Con is.
Get ready to witness a lot of adult freak-outs. Luke Skywalker's landspeeder (the hovercraft he uses to pick up power converters at the Tosche Station) is for sale at Comic-Con, but only for children.
Radio Flyer — yes, the maker of that little red wagon — has upgraded and is peddling toys from a galaxy far, far away. Meanwhile, larger-sized adults still must walk, like some boring nonforce-sensitive Stormtrooper.
The toys are on display on the convention hall floor. And let's be real, they look slightly less dramatic being marketed in the commercial. But already folks are freaking out.
Wielding Sharpies, foam swords and protective tubes to guard the exclusive treasures they hope to find, more than a hundred thousand pop culture and comics aficionados are descending on San Diego for Comic-Con International, the annual gathering for all things geek.
But for some longtime fans and retailers, a tipping point has been reached in the profitable but uneasy alliance between the comic-book world and Hollywood.
For the first time in 44 years, retailer Mile High Comics will be skipping the convention. Considered the country’s largest comic-book dealer, Mile High regularly brought 100,000 comics to sell on the convention hall floor.
"Westworld" comes alive this week at Comic-Con, but the fans who visit will have to make the ultimate choice: white hat or black? (Watch the exclusive LA Times video above to see which one this reporter picked.)
HBO's immersive, theatrical, and 21+ only "Westworld: The Experience" runs Thursday through Saturday here at the San Diego pop culture confab, offering treats far more intimate than the deluge of marketing that lines every square inch of Comic-Con.
A limited number of fans will have the chance to visit "Westworld" this week at the Comic-Con activation, located just outside the convention center, which runs about 30 minutes long and in small groups of only a half dozen guests at a time.
San Diego Comic-Con opened for preview night Wednesday, revealing row upon row of oddities, art and swag. But how does one distinguish between the treasures and the trash? Is it worth sacrificing an hour of your life just to stand inside a giant pineapple from the animated series “SpongeBob SquarePants?” We’re here to answer these pressing questions.
We combed through the body pillows, DVDs and limited-edition enamel pins to bring you the most interesting and innovative things hiding inside the massive convention hall. This is your guide to the Comic-Con floor.
This week, celebrities and studio marketing execs head south to the biggest stage of the year to woo the hardcore fans who can make or break their most anticipated blockbuster offerings, in the most important room in Hollywood: Hall H at Comic-Con.
The 2017 edition of San Diego's annual nerd circus arrives tomorrow, 10 years into an explosively evolving decade on this hallowed stage. It's here where "Twilight" ushered in a new era of femme-fueled mainstream fandom, the Marvel-DC franchise "war" continues to play out year after year, and television has risen to challenge the movies for the Comic-Con crown, filling its 6,500 capacity coliseum with screaming fans of shows like "Game of Thrones."
It was in 2007, after all, when an unassuming Jon Favreau popped up on Paramount's 10-film panel to blast fanboys and girls out of their seats with surprise footage from "Iron Man." The buzz flew through the roof and sparked Marvel movie mania as we know it. Now here we are, 16 MCU superhero flicks and $12 billion box office dollars later, preparing for the landmark "Black Panther" to reign over Hall H.
