Warner Bros. Brings ‘Blade Runner 2049,’ ‘It,’ ‘Ready Player One,’ ‘Justice League,’ and More to Comic Con
The San Diego Comic Con schedules have been rolling out all week, and Warner Bros. has a bunch of heavy hitters this year to possibly keep Marvel and Disney from stealing too much of the spotlight. Warners takes over Hall H on Saturday, July 22 at 11:30 AM, starting with a showcase of all their exciting upcoming releases, hosted by master of ceremonies Chris Hardwick.
After that, Steven Spielberg himself will be taking the stage for Ready Player One, his new dystopian cyberpunk sci-fi based on the book (and scripted by) Ernest Cline, who will be onstage with him. Also in attendance are stars Tye Sheridan, Olivia Cooke and T.J. Miller.
Then, Blade Runner 2049 brings us into a much different future, with stars Ryan Gosling, Harrison Ford, Ana de Armas, Sylvia Hoeks, Robin Wright, Lennie James and Mackenzie Davis, writers Hampton Fancher and Michael Green, and director Denis Villeneuve onstage for the panel. In addition to that, a Blade Runner 2049 Experience, an immersive multimedia installation, with run Thursday through Sunday in the Gaslamp Quarter.
Ending things with a bang, Justice League will take the stage later that day, with Ben Affleck, Gal Gadot, Jason Momoa, Ezra Miller and Ray Fisher there to tell us all about DC’s first superhero team-up. Plus, a sneak peek at James Wan’s upcoming Aquaman.
Aside from that, there’ll be a little something for the horror fans out there as well. Annabelle: Creation will hold a screening on Wednesday, July 19, at the Westfield Horton Plaza and followed by a Q&A with director David F. Sandberg and stars Stephanie Sigman, Talitha Bateman, Lulu Wilson and Anthony LaPaglia.
And if you’re one of those people who enjoys having the bejeesus scared out of you, there’s an It VR experience over in the Interactive Zone, called FLOAT, involving a creepy school bus and probably a balloon and also probably all of your worst nightmares. Good luck!
