Amazon Prime Video is coming to San Diego Comic Con with their original series The Boys, The Expanse and Carnival Row with fan experiences, a premier of the ‘the Boys’, panels, swag and autographs!
‘The Boys’ is a superhero series that has all my geek friends talking! It’s turning the superhero genre on its ear with the question ‘what if superheroes were bad’ how would humans put them in check? Sadly the sneak preview on Friday (July 19) sold out but you can subscribe to Amazon Prime Video to watch it starting on July 26th.
The Amazon Prime Video Experience (MLK & 1st) across from the convention center will celebrate the new series The Boys and Carnival Row AND the Expanse which joins the streaming service after fans brought it back from the brink (go Roci) is coming in HAWT.
It’s 60,000 square foot activation sounds like Amazon Prime wants the introduction to its geek series to be the talk of SDCC! The fan experience opens to the public on Thursday, July 18 – Sunday, July 21st and has a 40-foot tower with LED screens playing scenes from the series. Cosplayers come camera ready for a professional portrait photography studio set-up. Fans get your greedy hands ready for collectible gold and silver coins that can be used for the activation experience (burgers from Carl’s Jr & Cosplay photography). I’m hoping to attend the press preview day on Wednesday, July 17th and will be posting to my accounts Cherry _LA on twitter & instagram so follow me for all the Amazon Prime excitement!
During SDCC Amazon Prime Video will have five panels over three days and bringing stars Orlando Bloom and Cara Delevingne from Carnival Row and Karl Urban and Jack Quaid from The Boys. As well as the cast from fan favorite the Expanse for their first season on the streaming service!
Amazon Prime Video panels:
Thursday, July 18 Undone: From Raphael Bob-Waksberg & Kate Purdy, the acclaimed creators of BoJack Horseman, comes Undone, a groundbreaking and genre bending animated series, starring Rosa Salazar, about a young woman’s complex journey to unlock her past and solve the mystery of her father’s death. Indigo Ballroom, Hilton Bayfront, 1:45 p.m. – 2:45 p.m.
Friday, July 19 The Boys: Join executive producers Seth Rogen and Eric Kripke, along with series stars Karl Urban, Jack Quaid, Antony Starr, Erin Moriarty, Jessie T. Usher, Laz Alonso, Chace Crawford, Tomer Capon, Karen Fukuhara, and Elisabeth Shue, with moderator Aisha Tyler, for a behind the scenes look at their upcoming series. Based on The New York Times best-selling comic by Garth Ennis and Darick Robertson, The Boys is a fun and irreverent take on what happens when superheroes – who are as popular as celebrities – abuse their superpowers rather than use them for good. It’s the powerless against the super-powerful as The Boys embark on a heroic quest to expose the truth about The Seven. The series premieres July 26 on Amazon Prime Video. Ballroom 20, San Diego Convention Center, 3 :30 p.m. – 4:30 p.m. PT
