Thanks Dan!! I'll manage something, dont worry...babies love Movie festivals im led to believe!!

Hoping the event is October ish anyway, that would seem to make sense, as in long enough after Olympics and before Christmas so that peeps can afford to travel.

See ya there if it happens!!

Probably not October (assuming it's in London of course) ... London Film Festival sort of dominates everything else for a couple of weeks in October!

I hope no-one objects but I've changed the thread title slightly to help newbies come to the right place to discuss Big Screen etc

We could just rename the London film festival "Moviecon V" and kill two birds with one stone.

This idea is good. Empire would never let 360 open their festival.

I'm alternately looking at this thread and the Comic-Con updates, quietly sobbing. I NEED footage of giant monsters and tiny superheroes!!!

I'm gonna put this out there now so people have plenty of time to think and/or save.

Would anyone be interested in going to New York Comic-Con next year?

*my reasoning and lifestory and such*

Next year is my 30th. I never normally bother doing anything for b.days as a)its in Feb and b)it ends up being a right faf to get people together! So I'd been umming and ah-ing what to do. I'd pretty much decided on going to New York for a long weekend, then changed mind and thought I could fulfill dream of going to SDCC. However as awesome as SDCC would be it a)looks super expensive and b)is looking more like a nightmarish version of big screen *flashbacks to the queuing*. Then low and behold...it came to me. New York AND Geek-fest? New York Comic-Con!

Now obviously this wouldnt be half as fun by myself so I thought I'd see if anyone else was remotely interested in going next year (gives 15months to save)? If a few of us wanted to go a)it would be more fun and b)we might be able to find somewhere a little cheaper to stay with a larger party.

So.....have a think.....

Hey all (this year I'm not scrounging for tickets)

Hope the last year has treated you all well. I'm just trying to work out the scoop, on http://www.empirebigscreen.com/ it says:

Just announced - dates for BIG SCREEN next year - 14-16 September 2012

Is this old news that's no longer happening, or the real deal?

If the latter... how do you get tickets apart from going on the forum every day and asking multiple people, getting helped out by lovely forumites and eventually, somehow managing to go every year?

Hi Matthew, the posting from Helen earlier this month is the most recent info that we have.

ORIGINAL: Helen OHara

Afternoon all,

It's been brought to our attention that this is online: http://www.eventmagazine.co.uk/bulletin/eventnewsbulletin/article/1139331/empire-magazines-live-event-canned-2012/?DCMP=EMC-CONEventnewsbulletin

Just in case any of you happened to be reading Event magazine and got worried, let's be clear: the decision was taken not to do Empire Presents Big Screen at the O2 in the same format as last year - as I think you all already know. Since then we've been working - and continue to work - on putting something else together. For various reasons, including the Olympics and the general madness of London this year, that's still a work in progress. But when we have anything to announce y'all will be the first to know - I wish we had more to tell you right now.

Another down side of not having MovieCon/Big Screen we can't pick up our cheap subscriptions for Empire again.

The 20 deal last year was a bargain

I got the renewal email as well. They're looking for 75 as I'm in Ireland. When you take in the exchange rate, that's significantly more expensive than the newsagent self price.

Still no news? :-(
I have several plans on hold as I don't know which week-end Movie-Con will happen on... Can we at least get a month? Pretty please?

Has any one else noticed the big screen website has been taken down? its just redirects you to the clarion home page?

Are we to take this as a sign that big screen isn't happening at all :(

Hi Vaxes, as far as I know this is the most recent posting from any of the Empire staff.

Please, please, please, please Empire Gods, could you at least let us know vaguely when Moviecon V might potentially take place? Will it definitely be before Christmas? Could you maybe give us the month?
My boyfriend is likely to dump/strangle me if I don't stop with the "I can't plan that yet, I don't know what weekend Moviecon will be".

Please have pity on me!

I can't see any way it would be September at this point, I also think October is unlikely due to LFF and December because of Christmas. My guess would be that *if* anything happens this year, it would be November. And that's a pretty big if.
