In a first, LG Electronics USA will showcase its 3DTVs and mobile phones at the Comic-Con International July 12-15 in San Diego.
With more than 500,000 sci-fi geeks, fanboys and related attendees expected during the four-day confab, LG is partnering with Legendary Entertainment to provide trailers and sneak peeks (at booth #3920) of future films and related content on its line of Cinema 3D Smart TVs and smartphones with 3D and True HD displays.
Comic-Con attendees will have the opportunity to watch "The Pass," a fun and interactive contest in which participants are challenged with a set of tasks and rewarded with a Legendary T-shirt and the chance to win a VIP ticket for access to two exclusive screenings, shown for the first time on the LG CINEMA 3D Smart TVs and LG smartphones with True HD displays.
Winners also have a chance to get a first-look at upcoming films such as "Pacific Rim" and "Seventh Son," and get up close and personal with some of Legendary's directors and other talent.
“Legendary and LG share a common vision of delivering an unparalleled entertainment experience,” said James Fishler, SVP of marketing and go-to-market operations, LG Electronics USA. “Legendary's highly acclaimed film and media catalog takes Comic-Con attendees to the front line and into the action on LG 3D and HD devices, allowing them to experience their favorite heroes and villains like never before.”
