FX announced that after a successful event last year, it will return to San Diego Comic-Con with a massive outdoor takeover plunging fans deeper into the realities of their most anticipated new releases and fan favorites, creating a transformative experience from day to night, over two evenings, that attendees will not want to miss.
Over four days and two nights between Thursday, July 20 - Sunday, July 23, the lawn at The Hilton Bayfront Park will be converted into an FX playground filled with intrigue, mystery and drama, where new and returning beloved IPs will come alive. Guests will travel throughout Shōgun’s historic Edo period Japan and encounter a dark murder mystery in A Murder at the End of the World, check into an AHS-inspired wellness clinic, and transform every day into SUN-day funday with What We Do in the Shadows. Each activation promises to deliver the daytime experience that fans know and love, along with an immersive night experience including exciting lighting design and a handful of surprises and delights making for unique photo ops.
The four #FXSDCC large scale immersive installations include:
Enter the world of Shōgun with multiple immersive touchpoints including an augmented reality koi pond, live Samurai battles, and an early look at what the world of the new series has to offer.
