Thousands of comic and pop - culture fans, some in costume, are expected to geek out at a big Anahiem convention this weekend that will feature exclusive screenings and celebrities, including Jonah Hill and Emma Stone.
WonderCon, which is put on by the same developers as Comic - Con International, is coming to the Anahiem Convention Center, probably for one time only. WonderCon usually is held each spring in San Francisco, but a facility there is closed for renovations. WonderCon planners decided to move the event temporarily to Anahiem.
Crowd estimates were unavailable, but last year's San Francisco convention drew about 50,000 people. Fans often dress up as their favorite superheros or characters.
The Anahiem show will be larger; About 900 exhibitors, such as publishers and autograph booths. That's roughly 250 more than last year. The close proximity to Hollywood could help draw more celebrities.
