London Film & Comic Con returns, bigger and better than before with amazing star guests lined up to meet the fans this weekend. Olympia exhibition centre is the new home of London Film & Comic Con. Now in its 11th year, it was the first 'Comic Con' style event to launch in the UK.

One of this year's main attractions is the official 30th Anniversary BACK TO THE FUTURE Cast Reunion, which will bring together eleven of the trilogy’s cast including MICHAEL J. FOX, CHRISTOPHER LLOYD and LEA THOMPSON. Just in time for the official announcement by Universal Studios of the 30Th Anniversary Back to the Future Blu-Ray and DVD home entertainment release.

Showmasters is proud to partner with Universal Studios to bring this reunion experience to audiences, as well as support The Michael J.

About London Film & Comic Con
The first London Film & Comic Con was held in London back in 2004, the first of its kind to be staged in the UK. Over the years, the event has grown a steady reputation for providing fans the unique opportunity to meet star guests, who appear for full days or full weekends, a trademark feature of all Showmasters’ Film & Comic Con events. Last year's London Film & Comic Con event surpassed all others when Showmasters welcomed Marvel creator Stan Lee in his last ever European convention appearance, as well as Star Wars legend Carrie Fisher and the hugely talented Sir John Hurt. This signalled loudly that London Film & Comic Con will continue its commitment to fans in bringing the best legendary and contemporary ‘Comic Con’ experiences to Europe.
