BOOM! Studios and Twentieth Century Fox want to thank their fans at San Diego Comic-Con 2017 by partnering for the 2017 BOOM! Studios Drink Up – the longest-running annual party open to fans thrown by a comic book company at Comic-Con International in San Diego.
To celebrate the most successful year in BOOM! Studios history, the company and Twentieth Century Fox Film want to buy the first 1,000 fans their first drink at the BOOM! Studios Drink Up for free! (Fans must present valid ID to show they are of legal drinking age to receive alcoholic beverages.)
The annual event will once again be held on Thursday, July 20th beginning at 9pm at the Odysea Lounge, located on the second floor of the Hilton Bayfront Hotel.
GKIDS (producer and distributor of animated features for adults and family audiences), Annecy International Animation Film Festival (the world’s leading animation Festival and Market) and Variety magazine have announced the launch of Animation Is Film – and annual animation film festival in Los Angeles.
The first edition will run October 20-22 at the TCL Chinese 6 Theater in Hollywood (Mann’s Chinese Theater) with a showcase of 20 programs including feature films in competition, special presentations, retrospectives and short film programs.
Twentieth Century Fox Film has announced a strategic investment in comics and graphic novels publisher BOOM! Studios – a deal that gives the film studio a ‘significant minority stake in the largest independently-controlled comic book and graphic novel library.’
The deal also extends BOOM Studio’s first look movie and TV deal with Fox.
TCFF is currently in post-production on a feature film based on BOOM!’s The Empty Man, from the graphic novel by Cullen Bunn and Vanesa R. Del Rey.
One of the most entertaining genre satires/cult classics of all time (and big fun comics!), Big Trouble In Little China has inspired a new game from Everything Epic and Flipside – in partnership with BOOM! Studios – to create an unusual cooperative board game: Big Trouble In Little China: The Game.
The thematic cooperative adventure game enables 1-4 players to work together and experience the events that they remember from the film as well as create new adventures of their own. Dozens of film-inspired story-quests bring all the action front and center, and 40 highly detailed miniatures fire up the imagination.
Big Trouble In Little China: The Game is now available for preorder.
