NYCC 2016: Photo Gallery: Cosplay, Panels, Convention Floor

NYC 2016 Cosplay

After a few years of going to SDCC and then due to work and tickets being almost impossible to get, took a few years off, this year I was lucky enough to get a 4-day pass to NYCC. So, I packed my bags and headed to New York. I took tons of photos at the Con of the convention floor, panels, and, of course, the cosplay. Check it out here below in the image galleries.

For the most part, my whole time at New York Comic-Con focused around Doctor Who and other BBC America shows. I got to see a panel with a decent Q&A with Matt Smith, Jenna Coleman, and Alex Kingston talking about their time on Doctor Who. I was also able to make it to The Theater at Madison Square Garden for the BBC America showcase, including a early screening of Dirk Gently’s Holistic Detective Agency, which I really enjoyed and will be watching once the season starts in a few weeks. I followed that with a Class and Doctor Who panels, giving us little teases of the upcoming series and the Christmas Special for Doctor Who, all about the super heroes.

J.J. Abrams Says ’10 Cloverfield Lane’ “Is Very Purposefully Not Called ‘Cloverfield 2′”

10 Cloverfield Lane cast

So far we know that the Dan Trachtenberg-directed 10 Cloverfield Lane is a blood-relative to Cloverfield – which was directed by Matt Reeves. Producer J.J. Abrams made that abundantly clear when a surprise trailer made its debut in theaters alongside 13 Hours: The Secret Soldiers Of Benghazi earlier this year. But just sharing the name has a few thinking that the new film is a direct sequel to the 2008 sci-fi hit.

Now Abrams wants to clear the air. Despite the fact that the two films share the same name, and the characters are in the same world as the first Cloverfield, 10 Cloverfield Lane is not “Cloverfield 2.” It’s just 10 Cloverfield Lane. Check out what he had to say here below.

Paramount Pictures attached a surprising trailer to Michael Bay’s 13 Hours: The Secret Soldiers of Benghazi. Following much speculation and rumor, it has now been confirmed that this trailer is for the new Dan Trachtenberg film 10 Cloverfield Lane, starring John Goodman, Mary Elizabeth Winstead, and John Gallagher Jr.

Now, going by the title of the film and that it’s a Bad Robot production, one would assume that this is a sequel to 2008’s Cloverfield. Well, this is partially correct. As producer J.J. Abrams would explain, the film isn’t exactly a sequel, describing it as a “blood-relative” to Cloverfield. Check out his full statement, plus the official trailer and poster, in the story here below.

Must See: Live-Action ‘Portal’ Short Film ‘No Escape’ From ‘Totally Rad Show’ Host Dan Trachtenberg
The Movie God   |  

Portal: No Escape

A must–see new short film has come along that fans of the hit puzzle–solving game from Valve, Portal, will especially want to check out. It’s titled Portal: No Escape.

The short, directed by none other than Totally Rad Show host and Geeks of Doom friend, Dan Trachtenberg, is a live–action story set in the holding cells of Aperture Science, where a female captive (possibly Chell from the game?) is in an Oldboy sort of situation, being kept locked away for many days with no idea why. That is until she discovers a Handheld Portal Device in her cell, and, after a bit of testing, makes her break for freedom.

Even if you’ve never played the games and have just a basic idea of what Portal is, this is a film that should impress you. Hell, even if you have no clue what the game is, this is a damn fine short everyone should check out once. It very much reminded me of those fantastic live–action Halo shorts that have been made.

Check out Portal: No Escape below!
