Empire presents Big Screen

Brogen here, reporting from the deliciously sunny Cannes. Geek Syndicate were invited to a mysterious event yesterday – the original invitation didn’t tell us what the event was – but we went along anyway, we are always game for adventure.

We walked into a beach venue, just opposite the Carlton Hotel on La Croisette and were greeted by the team from Empire Magazine who were just dying to tell us about their new and exciting event happening in August…

Empire presents BIG SCREEN is going to take over London’s O2 Arena for three days and will give audiences the chance to have a first look at the biggest films of the year, before they hit the cinemas.

What does this entail? Well, Empire presents BIG SCREEN will have events for people of all ages, and all levels of geekery. Whether you are put off Comic Con by the sheer scale and detail that the fans know or, like us, are the people who dress up as their favourite characters, know all the detail from every Star Trek film and sleep outside cinemas for tickets, the event has something for you.

Empire presents BIG SCREEN will divide the The O2 into Big Screen Theatres, A Special FX Arena, Studio City – a showcase of latest technology – and Hollywood Boulevard, which will be home to a showcase of original props and memorabilia as well as shops where you can indulge your passion for film related products including memorabilia, soundtracks, T-shirts, models, books film licensed games and posters.

The event is being backed by all the major studios. The Walt Disney Company, Disney Pixar, Twentieth Century Fox, Sony Pictures, Marvel Studios, Paramount Pictures, Universal Studios and Warner Bros have already signed on, plus a wealth of independent distributors. Empire presents BIG SCREEN promises worldwide firsts and exclusive access to talent both in front of, and behind, the camera.

We know some of the people who will be attending, but we have been sworn to secrecy by the lovely people at Empire, so our lips are sealed… For now.

Empire presents BIG SCREEN will take place at London’s O2 from 12th to 14th of August. Tickets are on sale from 26th May.
