Hangout: EW’s A. Bresznican, Rogue One & Year in Review


Yes! We have successfully made it through the year without setting the whole damn thing on fire – raise a glass (or a mug of your chosen brewed beverage) to Talkin’ Comic-Con: A Cup O’ Tea with… as we reach our final episode of 2016!

And after a run of what we feel to be pretty bloody special episodes, we finished the year on a blinder – we are blessed and fortunate to have wrangled some free time from the very busy schedule of Entertainment Weekly scribe and Hall H alumni Anthony Breznican who joins us to talk about his experiences at San Diego Comic-Con International, his life as a pop culture aficionado and especially his time at this years event, which saw him darting around San Diego like a madman, taking in such sights as moderating the Aliens 30th Anniversary panel in Hall H on the Saturday. Very much looking forward to talking to Anthony!

Also, Leonard, Alyssa and Mark will be casting out spoiler-free thoughts on Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, now that all three of us will have seen it, and let you know if we feel it’s worth your time stuck in a dark room over the holidays. (Spoiler Alert: it so totally is!)

And finally, we’ll be taking a look back at a truly packed 2016, with our look-back at the highlights and memories of the last twelve months with our picks of the year… A packed show to head to our ‘mid-season break’! Hope you can join us!

Thanks Leonard for the write up! Click to be brought to his site.
