SXSW attendees who sat in on a panel last Saturday afternoon featuring HBO’s Westworld showrunners and stars were surprised when showrunner Jonathan Nolan introduced SpaceX CEO (and generally real-life Tony Stark) Elon Musk onto the Austin Convention Center stage.

During the panel, Nolan had been previously lamenting at the fact that when he was a kid, he used to spend an “unhealthy amount of time” dreaming about spaceflight, but in recent years the enthusiasm for space travel had waned, so he was talking to “a friend” about how to inspire people to drive the conversation back into space exploration. The inspirational “shocking” idea they came up with was a red sportscar combined with the music of David Bowie. That “friend” was of course Elon Musk, who joined the panel on stage.

SXSW 2018 10th Annual BBQ Crash Course

Anyone who knows me knows that I can’t resist good barbecue — or any barbecue for that matter. It’s my Achilles Heel, my downfall. So when I had the opportunity to attend the 10th annual BBQ Crash Course at Austin’s South By Southwest Festival (SXSW), I leapt at the chance.

A little context: I’m a Los Angeles native, and while I often smoke my own barbecue, I’ve never had authentic Texas BBQ before. I had no idea what I was in for.

While past reboots of Superman have put a greater focus on the Man of Steel’s life as reporter Clark Kent, newly hired DC Comics writer Brian Michael Bendis’ take on the character will be closely tied to the ideals of good journalism, the scribe explained during a panel at this year’s SXSW.

“I actually spent the day shadowing an Oregonian [journalist], just to show you how important the daily planet is to the stories we’ll be telling,” Bendis told Geeks Of Doom in response to a question about how the current climate of “fake news” and misinformation currently plaguing society might impact the storytelling. “On top of that, Journalism [is] under siege in my lifetime like it’s never been before.”

SXSW 2018 Ready Player One Experience

It may be 2018 in Austin, Texas, but in one corner in the midst of SXSW, it’s Columbus, Ohio in the year 2045. That’s the setting of Steven Spielberg’s new film, Ready Player One, based on the smash hit novel by Ernie Cline. The Warner Bros. media team transformed an Austin nightspot into the futuristic setting of the film for the interactive festival.

The thing about SXSW is that it makes you superhumanly exhausted. It’s why DC probably pulled out all the stops with its presence at the event this year, including showing up with Batman’s signature ride(s), a sneak peek at Syfy’s upcoming Superman prequel series, free coffee (because of course), and so much more. Check out details from the event here below.

Westworld

HBO has announced that they will be building a “fully immersive, functional version” of the town of Sweetwater from their series Westworld for the 2018 South by Southwest Festival in Austin, Texas.

The re-production will include locations from the show like the Coronado hotel and the Mariposa Saloon. Those who register to check it out will be transported from downtown Austin to a location just outside the city where Westworld has been brought to life. From there they’ll be set free to explore, search for clues about the upcoming season two of the series, and even enjoy some food and drink fitting to the theme.

You can find all the information below, along with a teaser video for the SXSW experience, which may just be teasing a Roman World.

SXSW 2017 Game Of Thrones Sophie Turner and Maisie Williams

With HBO announcing the premiere date for the highly anticipated seventh season of Game of Thrones, the series showrunners David Benioff and D.B. Weiss joined an anxious crowd today at SXSW in Austin, TX, to talk about what’s to come.

Normally, fans are treated to new seasons of the show in April soon after SXSW is held. However, due to a more intense filming schedule that required utilizing seasonal weather, we’re having to wait until July for Season 7. As such, to the folks attending this panel it felt much like a support group (e.g., “Hi my name is Tom, and it’s been 10 months since I consumed fresh episodes of Game Of Thrones.”)
