The inaugural Movie Fest, modelled on the massively successful "Comic Con" annual event held in the US, will take place at Cineworld Cinemas in Dublin on August 13 / 14. The event will showcase, for the general public, exclusive footage from upcoming Hollywood blockbusters along with previews of Hollywood films not due for release until late 2011. Day tickets are available for purchase for the event, and each day will include two high-profile feature film previews along with presentations from all major Hollywood studios. These presentations will feature a huge selection of extensive never-before-seen footage and trailers from some of the most highly anticipated films of 2011 and 2012.
The schedule on Saturday August 13 includes advance screenings of Colin Farrell's latest film, Fright Night, along with The Change Up, the latest film from the writers of The Hangover, starring Ryan Reynolds and Jason Bateman. Sunday's schedule includes advance screenings of the highly anticipated sci-fi / western Cowboys and Aliens starring Harrison Ford and Daniel Craig, plus 30 Minutes or Less, the latest film from the director of Zombieland, starring Jesse Eisenberg from The Social Network. With the event taking place over the course of two full days, movie fans will be able to immerse themselves and whet their appetites for some of the biggest films due for release over the next year, with a surprise or two in store including specially recorded greetings from some A-list filmmakers and actors.
Both days will feature extensive presentations with several hours worth of exclusive footage and trailers on view, including material from Twilight: Breaking Dawn, the new Steven Soderbergh movie Haywire which was shot in Ireland, Don't Be Afraid of the Dark from director Guillermo del Toro, Tower Heist starring Ben Stiller and Eddie Murphy, an exclusive four minute preview of The Adventures of TinTin, Stephen Spielberg's upcoming epic, 3D footage from the highly anticipated The Amazing Spider-Man, and a five minute clip from the new Total Recall.
