WonderCon – Comics and Pop Culture Convention at Moscone Center South this Weekend
|February 18, 2008||Posted by jamie under Events||
This weekend, February 22nd through 24th, there is a convention that some Rincon Hill residents may be interested in checking out. The convention is called WonderCon, and it provides a chance for folks to meet hundreds of creators of comics, an opportunity for kids to enjoy a children’s film festival, anime, games, and other programs. What drew my interest are appearances by actor Steve Carell (of 40 Year Old Virgin, Daily Show, and The Office fame) and actress Anne Hathaway (of Devil Wears Prada and Brokeback Mountain fame) to promote their new movie version of the old TV series Get Smart (Noon to 1p.m. on Saturday, February 23rd). There are also scheduled appearances by Brendan Fraser and the X-Files folks (David Duchovny and Gillian Anderson).
