Back To The Future Cast Headline London Film And Comic Con

LF&CC-2014_018

Quivering nerds are set to gather at Olympia London next weekend where they will no doubt break down weeping at the feet of legends such as Sigourney Weaver and the cast of Back To The Future, including Michael J. Fox and Christopher Lloyd.

The three day convention is expected to see 100,000 visitors pay homage to an impressive roll call of stars. There'll be at least two Doctor Whos, a few X Men, the actors who played Darth Maul, Freddy Krueger and Dumbledore, a bunch of English thesps who got mutilated in Game of Thrones, and more Star Trek actors than you can shake a light sabre at.

If you can't be bothered to queue for the good ones, there'll also be a couple of Power Rangers and the dudes who played the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles.

Autographs will be available, naturally. It's a cool £95 for Sigourney Weaver, £45 for MacGyver, or a tenner for the guy who stood in for the actor who played Chewbacca (bargain!).

There will be six zones: Books, Manga, Cosplay, Comics, Gaming and Anime with activities, stalls, memorabilia and guest talks. The best part however is that a large contingent of fans will don cosplay, so you can witness someone like Malcolm McDowell awkwardly grinning as he shakes hands with a Klingon overlord.

London Film And Comic Con runs from 17-19 July. Tickets are now sold out but the event returns in November when king of the zombies George A. Romero will attend so you better book now.

This is a terrible 'article'. If you can't find someone to write about an event that is genuinely excited about it, or at least understands that some people are allowed to get excited about things they don't get excited about then don't bother. I find this so called article insulting and ignorant.
