LAIKA Live Comic-Con 2018 'Everything You Need To Know'

LAIKA, the studio that’s brought you such films as Coraline, ParaNorman, The Boxtrolls, and Kubo and the Two Strings, is bringing a new offsite this year to 350 5th Ave in the Gaslamp on Friday, July 13 – Sunday, July 22.

This year’s space is three times the size of last year’s offsite, and for 2018, LAIKA is taking the concept of having you feel like you’re really in the films to a whole new level. Attendees will be able to step into an exhibit with a huge cache of props, puppets, and sets (including, we hear, Coraline‘s bedroom) from LAIKA’s film. There will also be fan art, technology demonstrations, drawings for a pair of coveted Coraline Dunks from Nike, social media activations, LAIKA merchandise offered for sale (including brand new items and limited edition Coraline items), multiple giveaways, and more. “Curators” will be on hand to explain the process of LAIKA’s filmmaking, as you get a glimpse behind the curtain.

There will also be an autograph signing with LAIKA President & CEO Travis Knight and a “soon-to-be-announced special guest” on Saturday, July 21 at 12:30PM-2PM.

There will also be costumed characters, including Coraline and Other Mother from Coraline, as well as Norman and Zombie Judge from ParaNorman, Boxtrolls Fish and Sparky from The Boxtrolls, Kubo, Monkey, and Beetle from Kubo and The Two Strings – and also Mr. Link from LAIKA’s latest film, Missing Link, heading to theatres April 19, 2019.

Movie Review: #MissSloane

The political drama Miss Sloane fails to lobby us into Oscar territory.
Review by Matt Cummings
In a time when women were supposed to be leading our country, Miss Sloane arrives to remind us of what could have been. Unfortunately, this message about a headstrong female Washington lobbyist loses us early with an unappealing director, a paper-thin plot, and suffers from a ton of convenient realism. If the good (but not impressive) performances weren't there to buffer these and many other gaps, we might have found ourselves voting for impeachment.

For Washington lobbyist Elizabeth Sloane (Jessica Chastain), life is about getting her clients what they want from the halls of Congress. Her boss Dupont (Sam Waterston) will sleep with NRA types, fudge travel records, and bully smaller firms into submission if it means a hearty paycheck at day's end. But when Sloane leaves the company to push Gun Control legislation with one of those smaller firms, Dupont turns to his bulldog Co…
