We just got a terrific offer for our readers from the Los Angeles Film Festival...so as off-topic as this is, check it out:
Offer #1: HELLBOY II special ticket sale
ETA: ALL SOLD OUT NOW KIDS. MOVE ALONG TO #2 BELOW.
A message from our friends at the LAFF:
Exclusive to Galactica Sitrep! The LA Film Festival is offering a limited number of tickets to the world premiere of HELLBOY II: THE GOLDEN ARMYand the After Party. Just click on the LA Film Festival banner on the side column to the right. These tickets are not on sale to the general public. Sale begins 10am Monday, June 9. Only 20 tickets available to Sitrep readers, so don’t wait! (Must be 21 or over.)
All event details are here...Guillermo del Toro and some of the cast will attend the screening and after party. Del Toro is also participating in a separate "Conversation With" event on June 23 (see details here). I saw his panel at NY Comic Con, he was incredibly opinionated and hilarious...a Mexican Kevin Smith with a love for special effects and genre pictures.
