This year’s star-studded celebration is currently taking over the halls of the Javits Convention Center from now through Sunday. Some highlights so far at the 14th annual event have included a surprise appearance by Ryan Reynolds to show off his new film Free Guy and a gathering of the cast of the reboot of Are You Afraid of the Dark?
Tom Hiddleston, Paul Rudd, Sean Astin and Christopher Eccleston are just some of the big names set to appear for autographs and photos in the day to come. Panel highlights over the weekend that you may want to check out include at 10:30am panel on The Walking Dead tomorrow, a panel on Star Trek at 1pm Saturday and a Warner Bros block covering its popular shows like Riverdale on Sunday at 10:30am.
