Cineworld and Movies.ie have recently joined forces and launched MovieFest - a new Irish Movie-Event inspired by the legendary US Comic-Con - which takes place in Cineworld, Dublin, on Saturday 13 and
Sunday 14 August.
Organiser Vincent Donnelly said:
"We had taken note of how huge Comic-Con has become in the US, now attracting thousands of people and the biggest stars, and wanted to try to recreate some of that excitement here.
Irish audiences, among the most frequent moviegoers in the world, can sometimes be neglected when it comes to access to an all-inclusive event like this, and we wanted to make sure that while it was modelled on Comic-Con, it's a very unique event.
There will be plenty of surprises over the weekend, and plenty of prizes and goody bags for members of the audience, so if you're a movie fan, this is definitely the event for you."
Sounds good, right? Well it gets better.
According to the RTE website;
"Exclusive footage from the likes of The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn, Steven Soderbergh's Haywire, Guillermo del Toro's Don't Be Afraid of the Dark and Ben Stiller's Tower Heist will be screened, along with a four-minute preview of Steven Spielberg's The Adventures of TinTin and a five-minute clip from the upcoming Total Recall remake, which stars Colin Farrell."
Having checked out the website myself, it looks as though the Twilight footage will be screened on the Saturday! However, we are still waiting for confirmation on that, and we will let you know ASAP!Tickets are available from Cineworld, priced €22.50.
