LG to Appear at Comic-Con with 3D and HD Technology
LG Electronics USA and Legendary Entertainment are joining forces to deliver an entertainment experience for visitors to the Legendary booth at Comic-Con International, a gathering of film, gaming and comic-book fans, running from July 12–15.
As more than half a million Comic-Con attendees are expected to descend on San Diego this week, many will be treated to an entertainment show when Legendary provides a sneak peek of future films and other content exclusively on LG CINEMA 3D Smart TVs and premium LG smartphones with 3D and True HD displays.
In this event, LG aims to prove it’s possible to bring a movie-theater-quality viewing experience into the living room—and even into the palm of one’s hand.
“Legendary and LG share a common vision of delivering an unparalleled entertainment experience,” said James Fishler, senior vice president of marketing and go-to-market operations, LG Electronics USA. “Legendary’s highly acclaimed film and media catalog takes Comic-Con attendees to the front line and into the action on LG 3D and HD devices, allowing them to experience their favorite heroes and villains like never before.”
Legendary content will be shown exclusively on LG displays, such as the LM7600 and LM6200 LED CINEMA 3D Smart TVs, and on LG HD smartphones, including the LG Spectrum and LG Nitro.
Legendary fans attending Comic-Con also will have the opportunity to experience “The Pass,” a fun and interactive contest in which participants are challenged with a set of tasks and rewarded with a Legendary T-shirt and the chance to win a VIP ticket for access to two exclusive screenings, shown for the first time on the LG CINEMA 3D Smart TVs and LG smartphones with True HD displays.
Winners also have a chance to get a first-look at upcoming films such as “Pacific Rim” and “Seventh Son,” and get up close and personal with some of Legendary’s directors and other talent.
LG’s Warning: For a small percentage of the population, the viewing of stereoscopic 3D video may cause discomfort such as dizziness or nausea. If you experience any of these symptoms, discontinue using the 3D functionality and contact your health care provider.
Legendary Entertainment is a leading media company with film (Legendary Pictures), television (Legendary Television) and comics (Legendary Comics) divisions dedicated to owning, producing and delivering content to mainstream audiences.
