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.

Sex Tape Review: Overly Sexual, Rude, Vulgar, and Absolutely Hilarious

The raunchy Sex Tape will divide audiences and critics, but who cares? Sex Tape suggests a growing practice among loving partners: that of making a raunchy testament of their escapades for posterity. But what happens when that evidence gets seen by friends, neighbors, and even the mailman? This is the plot that pits Jay (Jason Segel) and Annie (Cameron Diaz) in an effort to secure every iPad gift Jay has given, his record company playlists being the envy of the recipients, but which has also inadvertently spread the video to every device. The reason for the act - termed in the movie as pulling "the full Lincoln" for its three-hour length - stems from the couple's non-existent social life, brought on by the constant demands of their children.
