The wait is almost over! Supanova 2015 kicks off next weekend, starting with Melbourne (10-12 April) and then on to the Gold Coast (17-19 April).
So what can you expect? There’s our Opening Night, featuring the Official Opening Ceremony, geek-rockin’ tunes from Kirby Krackle, creative masterclasses with Tony Moore and Colin Taber, John Jarratt will chat to fans about his new flick, StalkHer and there will be an exclusive screening of 009 RE: Cyborg for anime fans.
Thanks to NetFlix, we have an exclusive screening of the first 2 episodes of Daredevil at both expos, as well as the new Thunderbirds series, with special guest Richard Taylor (of Weta and four-time Academy Award winner), introducing the first 2 episodes in Melbourne.
James Marsters will also be performing a solo concert on Saturday night in each city, from 6:30pm. You can pre-purchase tickets from Moshtix for $25 or at the door on the night for $30.
Be sure to pick up an Event Programme at the door where you’ll find all the information you need about the exciting activities happening throughout each weekend, including the Timezone Pinball Championship, Madman Cosplay competitions, the Imagineer’s Playground (featuring panels and workshops including Weta), anime screenings, Q&As with Australian film makers, and a charity auction. QuickFlix have also generously offered attendees a 6 week trial to the value of $31, which can be found in you show bag upon entry.

Unfortunately we’ve also had to say farewell to Ryan Hurst, Danai Gurira, Eoin Macken, Alexander Vlahos and Steve Worland over the last few weeks due to conflicting work commitments.
