DIRECTORS COLIN and GREG STRAUSE make their first and only Convention appearance on stage at 1:00 P.M. to preview special ALIENS VERSUS PREDATOR: REQUIEM film clips, discuss the making of the film, and take questions from the audience. It’s expected that the brothers STRAUSE will stay to sign autographs while their schedule allows, and that 20th Century Fox will provide special film give-aways. “Rated-R and no-holds-barred, the iconic creatures from two of the scariest franchises wage their most brutal battle ever-in our own backyard.”
MARVIN KAPLAN, the voice of CHOO CHOO from the HANNA-BARBERA cartoon series TOP CAT, signs autographs from 11:00 A.M.-3:00 P.M.
