You can add another off-site set up to your Comic Con “To Do” list! This time it’s being put together by Yahoo!
Taking a page from the success they have seen to date online, Yahoo! will transform a 2000 square foot Comic-Con space into MOVIELAND, so attendees can experience a life-size interactive game board with movie-related content (trivia, quizzes, etc.) customized to some of the summer’s biggest movies, including ParaNorman, Total Recall and The Expendables 2. Highlights from the experience will include: actual movie props, augmented reality photo booths, special visits from actors throughout the week including Christopher Mintz-Plasse (ParaNorman, How to Train Your Dragon, Superbad), and chances to win exclusive on-site prizes, including movie tickets. Sean Phillips, head of movies at Yahoo!, will also be onsite to discuss the latest and greatest from the conference and the summer movie phenomenon.
Sounds pretty exciting doesn’t it? You don’t need a badge to attend as this event is open to the public. The MOVIELAND space is across the street from Comic-Con (located at 520 5th Avenue). The information we have stated that talent will be appearing on Friday the 13th but there’s no indication on who that talent is exactly.
