America’s Second Largest Pop Culture Comic Con Hosts Westworld.
I’m excited to announce that HBO’s Westworld has been confirmed for the 2016 New York Comic Con. This fan favorite convention runs from Thursday, October 6th to Sunday, October 9th. The creative minds behind Westworld and some cast members are scheduled to appear on Sunday, October 9th at 3:30pm at the Hammerstein Ballroom for a special screening of the second episode. Reportedly, the New York Comic Con is the East Coast’s biggest and most exciting popular culture convention. The Show Floor plays host to the latest and greatest in comics, graphic novels, anime, manga, video games, toys, movies and television. The Panels and Autograph Sessions give Fans a chance to interact with their favorite Creators. The screening rooms feature sneak peeks at films and television shows months before they hit big and small screens.
The New York Comic Con is the second largest pop culture convention in America and the only one that takes place in the comic book, publishing, media and licensing capital of the world — Gotham City. The Hammerstein Ballroom, where Westworld is hosted, is a two-tiered, 12,000-square-foot ballroom located within the Manhattan Center Studios at 311 West 34th Street in Manhattan in New York City.
Fans may join Westworld showrunners Jonathan Nolan & Lisa Joy, alongside cast members Thandie Newton, Jeffrey Wright, and Jimmi Simpson, for an advance screening of episode 2, followed by a panel discussion and Q&A. HBO has suggested that additional cast members and a moderator will be announced prior to the show. Here’s the cool tweet put out by the New York Comic Con.
