New York Comic-Con wrapped up on October 7th and ended a crazy four days at the Javits Convention Center in NYC. My last press roundtable of that weekend was for the upcoming science fiction film Prospect, which stars Jay Duplass (Transparent), Pedro Pascal (Game Of Thrones), and Sophie Thatcher, who makes her feature-film debut here.
The film, which had its premiere in March at the SXSW Film Festival, was written and directed by Chris Caldwell and Zeek Earl, and is a feature-length version of their 2014 short. It will be released on November 2, 2018 in Regal theaters, which will be offering an exclusive art print by Christopher Shy, as well as an exclusive download of the film’s accompanying Playbill, Aurelac Prospecting: Guide To Getting Rich On The Green Moon, that delves into the film’s world-building.
The panel for American Gods, the Starz television series based on the award-winning 2001 novel by Neil Gaiman, was one of the most anticipated events at this year’s New York Comic-Con. Season 2 recently wrapped, so the creators and stars were present to talk about what we can expect in the next season and more. At the convention center, we got to participate in the press roundtable interviews for the series, and this time around, we got to sit down with Crispin Glover (Mr. World), Bruce Langley (Technical Boy), and Yetide Badaki (Bilquis).
Years ago I became a fan of Dan Fogler from his offbeat comedies Balls of Fury (2007) and Fanboys (2009). He has since blossomed into one of the “it” guys in the business right now as he readies to appear in season 9 of TV’s biggest show, AMC’s The Walking Dead, has Fantastic Beasts and the Crimes of Grindelwald coming to theaters in mid November, and has a recurring role in ABC’s The Goldbergs. He is also a writer of graphic novels, which all led him to this year’s New York Comic-Con. The Brooklyn-born actor and author sat at the Heavy Metal booth selling out copies of his graphic novel, Brooklyn Gladiator, before taking a few minutes to jump in a press room for some questions.
American Gods was a big hit at this year’s New York Comic-Con, as season 2 of the Starz series just wrapped and its creators and stars were out in full force. We got to take part in several roundtable interviews at the Javits Center in NYC with the stars of the series, which returns to Starz next year.
See below our roundtable discussion with Orlando Jones (Mr. Nancy), Omid Abtahi (Salim) and Mousa Kraish (The Jinn).
The creators and stars of American Gods, the Starz television series based on the award-winning 2001 novel by Neil Gaiman, made an appearance at this year’s New York Comic-Con last week and were eager to talk about what is planned for the upcoming second season. We got to speak with several members of the incredible show, which returns to STARZ next year, at the Jacob Javits Convention Center to discuss their characters and the future of the series.
See below our roundtable discussion with Emily Browning (Laura Moon), Pablo Schreiber, and Demore Barnes (Mr. Ibis).
