Sci fi speed dating toronto
It is a four-day event (Thursday through Sunday) typically held the weekend before Labour Day during the summer at the Metro Toronto Convention Centre (MTCC) and is now owned by Informa.
Indeed, Jack Dylan Grazer, who will return in the sequel as young Eddie Kaspbrak, sharing the film with James Ransome as his adult counterpart, revealed to EW that an intriguing bit of character calibration occurred at the Toronto-held table read: Speed dating. Grazer recounts, “When I first got to Toronto for the table read, we went out to lunch, all of us, and the acting coach from the original It, the one we shot in 2017, came up to us and was like, ‘I have an idea: you guys should do like a speed dating thing and just talk to your adult version.'” He adds, “I learned a lot about PJ [James Ransome’s nickname], he learned a lot about me and it was really fun.” The description of this acting exercise seems to line up with the recent photo posted by co-star Jessica Chastain – the adult version of Beverly Marsh – sitting directly across from her character’s younger counterpart, played by Sophia Lillis.
The convention is the largest of its kind in Canada and among the largest in world, filling the entire North and South Buildings of the MTCC with over 130,000 attendees in 2016.
Along with panels, seminars, and workshops with comic book professionals, there are previews of upcoming feature films, portfolio review sessions with top comic book and video game companies, and evening events such as the Masquerade (a costume contest), special screenings and the Diamond Distribution Industry Night Dinner and Reception for industry professionals only.
TORONTO - Pamela Anderson, “Aquaman”'s Jason Momoa, and cast-members from “The Goonies” and “Blade Runner” are among the headliners bound for this year's Fan Expo Canada.
The annual pop culture fair is touting blasts-from-the-past including Sean Astin, Corey Feldman and Ke Huy Quan from “The Goonies” and Mario Lopez, Mark-Paul Gosselaar and Elizabeth Berkley from “Saved by the Bell.” Meanwhile, Sean Young, Rutger Hauer and Edward James Olmos will reunite from the 1982 sci-fi classic “Blade Runner,” a futuristic feature set in 2019.
Since there was two doors into the room where the speed dating would be held, I was at fan expo. He does say, however, Sci-Fi Speed Dating is more specialized than generalized speed dating.
