The second annual Movie Fest, modelled on the massively successful ‘Comic Con’ annual event held in the US, will take place at Cineworld Cinemas, Dublin on September 8th and 9th. The first Movie Fest in August 2011 saw sold-out houses at Cineworld for a variety of screenings, presentations, previews, and hot-off-the-presses movie merchandise, and the 2012 event is set to be even bigger.
Following last year’s sell-out screenings, the 2012 event will showcase exclusive previews and new footage of the hottest upcoming Hollywood movies
The event will showcase, for the general public, exclusive footage from upcoming Hollywood blockbusters along with previews of at least six Hollywood films not due for release until later in the year. Day tickets will be available for purchase for the event, and each day will include the high-profile feature film previews along with presentations from all major Hollywood studios. Exclusive footage direct from the recent Comic-Con in San Diego will be shown at Movie Fest 2012, including extended clips, trailers and behind the scenes snippets from upcoming blockbusters.
Last year saw a few surprises in store including specially recorded greetings from some A-list filmmakers and actors, and this year will be no different. All major Hollywood studios will be previewing their upcoming slate of films with new footage and trailers including Warner Bros., Disney, Universal, Sony Pictures, 20th Century Fox and Paramount.
Movie Fest takes place at Cineworld Cinemas, Parnell Centre, Dublin on September 8th / 9th, and the full schedule will be revealed over the coming weeks.
