Madame Tussauds Premiere Marvel 4D – On The Same Day As London MCM Expo

I have a lovely invite to see the premiere of the new Marvel 4D exhibition at Madame Tussauds tomorrow at 10.30am, before even the rest of the press, the staff at the centre and indeed, the hoi polloi.

The waxworks museum are featuring three floors of Marvel Super Hero exhibits, including a “4D animated film presentation with high impact surprises” which I think means a 3D animation screening 360 degrees around the room.

There’s a Q&A with Joshua Wexler (animator) and Richard Orr (head of marketing) afterwards.

Unfortunately this does clash with the opening of the London MCM Expo, the largest comics convention in the UK where, apparently, I’ve got a table. And they’ve got the likes of Kevin McGuire, Ben Templesmith, Paul Cornell and the usual crew.

Madame Tussauds have even laid on Marvel branded taxis to take guests from their show to the MCM directly afterwards – but that’s no good to me.

So Madams, I do hope you have a wonderful launch. I’m sure you’ll put on a spiffing show. But I’ll be down with the cosplayers…
