SDCC 2016: Fox celebrates Aliens, Apocalypse, and tons more

The Fox booth at SDCC is gonna be jumping, with big set pieces for you to check out and some awesome exclusive items.

Well this is Comic Con, so if there weren’t a bunch of awesome monster-booths, it’d be weird. Thanks to Fox, we know for certain that won’t be the case.

Aliens, X-Men: Apocalypse, Deadpool, and more

It’s the 30th anniversary of Aliens this year, and the company is planning a massive panel with all the stars from the film. Sigourney Weaver will take part, as will Bill Paxton, Michael Biehn, and even Jim Cameron.

Fox SDcc 2016-2


Celebrate the 30th Anniversary of ALIENS with a full cast panel including Sigourney Weaver, James Cameron, Bill Paxton, Michael Biehn, Paul Reiser, Lance Henriksen, Carrie Henn and Gale Ann Hurd on Saturday, July 23 at 3:15pm in Hall H. A fan screening with an intro from James Cameron will follow the panel on Saturday evening at 7:00pm at The UA Horton Plaza Theatre.

Pre-orders for the ALIENS 30th ANNIVERSARY Blu-ray includes a Limited Edition lithograph of “Ripley vs. Queen.”

Not a panel, the X-Men experience set up for the show sounds like it will be pretty spectacular nonetheless. Fox is setting up the tomb of Apocalypse, and you get to go in.

After a morning RSVP that you’ll have to sign up for, you’ll get to enter a real-world ‘tomb’ setting. From there, you’ll take a VR trip through Apocalypse’s not-so final resting place from the film. Oh, also neat – if you pre-order the movie on home video right then and there, you’ll get a special Dazzler album cover.

Fox SDcc 2016 “The X-Men Tomb of Apocalypse X-perience (Booth 3529) is unlike any activation ever featured on the Comic-Con show floor.  The space is built out as a 3-D tomb structure, loaded with interactive games, special effects and VR elements featuring extraordinary design detail reminiscent of a theme-park attraction. Fans will enter the tomb and solve a series of complex challenges to defeat the most powerful mutant ever, Apocalypse.

  • The X-perience will be open daily for fans to RSVP their “Tomb Time” each morning to embark on the challenge of a lifetime.

X-MEN APOCALYPSE, available on Digital HD Sept. 9 and on Blu-ray™, 4K Ultra HD and DVD on Oct. 4, will be available for pre-order at the Fox Booth. Pre-orders will receive an exclusive “Dazzler” album cover with purchase while supplies last.

Signings, photo-ops, and awesome goodies

Past that stuff, there’s also a cool photo op for American Horror story fans, and an impressive selection of stuff that you can buy and take home. And yes, that selection of stuff includes Deadpool, Archer, Family Guy, and more.

Here’s how the wallet-draining breaks down:
