Saturday, October 10
1:15 p.m. PT/4:15 p.m. ET – BATMAN: DEATH IN THE FAMILY – AN INTERACTIVE TALE
Warner Bros. Home Entertainment will unveil its first-ever interactive film presentation with Batman: Death in the Family. Based on a set of animated shorts, the innovative film is based on the 1988 landmark DC event, where fans voted by telephone to determine the story’s ending, and that organically grew out of the 2010 DC Universe film, Batman: Under the Red Hood. In the new version, the animated short is an interactive storytelling presentation with numerous “branches,” allowing the viewer multiple options from which to choose and alter the path of the core characters (Batman, Robin, Joker, Red Hood, and more). Join producer/director/writer Brandon Vietti (Batman: Under the Red Hood, Young Justice), actors Bruce Greenwood (The Resident, Star Trek, iRobot), Vincent Martella (Phineas and Ferb, Everybody Hates Chris), and Zehra Fazal (Young Justice), as well as moderator Tiffany Smith (DC Daily) for an in-depth discussion about the film. Batman: Death in the Family arrives on Blu-ray TM Combo Pack and Digital October 13.
Sunday, October 11
8:40 a.m. PT/11:40 a.m. ET – HAPPY HALLOWEEN, SCOOBY-DOO!
Tune in to the first-ever convention panel to feature the four core voices of the Scooby-Doo franchise: Frank Welker (Fred Jones), Grey Griffin (Daphne Blake), Matthew Lillard (Shaggy Rogers), and Kate Micucci (Velma Dinkley) as they chat about their all-new film, Happy Halloween, Scooby-Doo! As well as debut the first eight minutes of the movie! The panel also features Cassandra Peterson (Elvira, Mistress of the Dark), director/producer/writer Maxwell Atoms (Fish Hooks, The Grim Adventures of Billy & Mandy), and moderator Damian Holbrook (TV Guide Magazine senior writer).
Halloween is heaven for these hungry foodies going door-to-door. But this year, their sweet holiday turns sour when the neighborhood pumpkin patch is infected by toxic ooze, creating high-flying jack-o-lanterns, and a king-sized pumpkin leader squashing everything in its path. It’s up to Scooby-Doo and the gang as they team up with their pals, Elvira, Mistress of the Dark and Bill Nye the Science Guy, to solve this mystery of gigantic proportions and save Crystal Cove!
Happy Halloween, Scooby-Doo! arrives on DVD and Digital HD starting October 6.
