This weekend in New York City it's all about New York Comic-Con, which is held annually at the Jacob Javits Center and comes stuffed with everything you expect to see at a comic convention: people in crazy costumes, lots of nerdy panels and a plethora of new toys and gadgets to play with. Unlike San Diego Comic-Con, which usually attracts many of the big upcoming blockbusters, New York Comic-Con seems to like the genre fare. Though some Iron Man 3 footage debuted this morning, the big panels this year are all a bit horror-ish (fitting for the month we're in), and include stuff like Beautiful Creatures, The Evil Dead, Carrie, The Conjuring and Silent Hill: Revelation 3D.
What's cool about the panels this year is that for the first time New York Comic-Con will be live streaming all of their biggest movie panels online. So if you can't make it or live in another state, you won't miss out on any of the action (though don't expect them to live stream any new footage). Here's a schedule of the events (we've bolded the movie panels), and you can watch them all right here.
