FX Networks will be putting on quite a show at the 2015 Comic Con running July 9th through 12th in downtown San Diego. In addition to hosting panels for American Horror Story: Hotel, The Strain, Sex&Drugs&Rock&Roll, Archer, and a bit of The Bastard Executioner, FX is also hosting a giant FX Fearless Arena featuring exhibits, contests, and give-aways from their slate of programs. The FX Fearless Arena will be set up at the Hilton Bayfront Park right next door to the San Diego Convention Center, and fans can begin registering for ‘activations’ on July 7th at www.fxsdcc.com.
Here’s the scoop on what you can expect if you’re heading to Comic Con this year:
Prove your fearlessness by entering a live-action virtual reality experience inspired by The Strain, the vampire thriller from Carlton Cuse and Guillermo del Toro, based off the best-selling book trilogy by del Toro and Chuck Hogan. Using the Samsung Gear VR – powered by the Galaxy Note 4, fans will be taken on a two-and-a-half-minute adventure created exclusively for Comic-Con and featuring series regular Kevin Durand (“Vasiliy Fet”). It’s the perfect preview for the second season of The Strain, which premieres on FX on Sunday, July 12th at 10 PM ET/PT.
American Horror Story: Hotel
Ryan Murphy’s hit anthology horror series American Horror Story is back this fall with its fifth installment, Hotel, and FX is building a two-story model hotel to give viewers a taste of the era. Then fans will be able to venture inside one of eight “gifting suites” in order to capture the most flying bills and earn prizes.
The Bastard Executioner
“Escape the Forest” is the ideal duel inspired by Kurt Sutter’s upcoming medieval drama The Bastard Executioner. Visitors don the mantle of “warriors” and square off against each other to prove their prowess with a high striker, a cross-bow, and a final puzzle challenge that will help them escape the “forest” and win a TBX-themed hooded t-shirt. The Bastard Executioner will debut on FX this fall.
Aw jeez, a blizzard in San Diego? Step inside a giant 20-foot inflatable snow globe featuring snow flurries and a façade of a Waffle Hut – a key location in the second installment of the award-winning limited series Fargo which returns to FX this fall.
