It’s getting closer to the time - MCM Comic Con is almost upon us!
The countdown is running low, and beginning this Friday the 23rd, carrying on to Sunday the 25th May, London’s EXCEL Arena will once again play host to thousands of events and their fans. If my past experience at these events rings true this week, then the arena is sure to bee brimming with people enjoying themselves and, most probably, never wanting to leave.
If you’re heading to MCM over this weekend, amongst the rest of the line-up, you will be seeing the crew from new comedy-adventure film Ashens And The Quest For The Gamechild, including the very established actor Robert Llewellyn (Red Dwarf), which see the main character Ashens embark upon a quest to find a piece of the elusive ‘electronic tat’ known as the Gamechild. Learn all about Ashens’ adventure at the Vidfest Stage on Saturday
Accompanying them will be a fan-made film titled Predator: Dark Ages, telling of a group of Medieval Templar knights returning from the East only to discover that their enemy is closer and indeed deadlier than previously believed. Check these guys out at the Vidfest Stage on Sunday 25th from 1:00pm to 1:30pm.
Lastly, another one to look out for is new sci-fi series Cops and Monsters. Starring familiar faces such as Caitlin Blackwood (Doctor Who), Holly Jack (River City), Rachel Teate (Wolfblood), Kai Owen (Torchwood), Gareth David-Lloyd (Torchwood) and Caitlin Gillespie (Waterloo Road, River City), Cops and Monsters, sheds light on what would happen if vampires, werewolves and zombies began to live amongst humans in our world. Vidfest will also display this talented bunch at their Saturday event from 4:00pm to 4:30pm.
From all at IWG, enjoy and perhaps we'll see some of you there!
