Ultraman on Netflix, Jordan Peele’s Us in Cinemas, Retro Video Game Markets in Brisbane and the Melbourne Comedy Festival kicks off. Here is your guide to Everything happening this week in Geek across Australia.

1On Streaming/TV

In Streaming this week we can’t go past Ultraman on Netflix. Not a complete reboot but set decades after the original series with the Son of Ultraman discovering his fathers past and then taking up the mantle. The full season one of this Anime drops on Monday night.

2In Cinemas

In Cinemas this Thursday we have 2 films at the opposite ends of the emotional spectrum. If you are after something a bit light then see the next “live action” Disney film with Dumbo taking flight in cinemas and directed by Tim Burton. Or if you are more in a horror/thriller type of mood then the next film from Jordan Peele ‘Us’ also drops into cinemas on Thursday. Honestly, if this was 5 years ago you would have thought this was a Freaky Friday situation with the directors.

3Stuff To Go Do

First up, remember that Monday is April Fools Day (so if you fall for anything from now, that’s on you), but also Monday is also International Pillow Fight Day. Tread lightly.

Collectors of all kinds will want to descend on the Bendigo Record, Comic and Toy Fair happening in Victoria this Sunday. While first established as a Record Market this fair has a pretty robust amount of comics for you to thumb through if you have any holes in your comic collection.

Brisbane is also not being left out for collectors but more for Arcade and Video Gaming with the 1Up Arcade hosting a swap meet this weekend. Expect more than one vendor in attendance with multiple tables making this one a real market.

And lastly, the Melbourne Comedy Festival has begun! There are no shortage of great shows to go and see with just a few of our favourites listed below but if you want to take the road less travelled check out the full Melbourne Comedy Festival program to see what else is on this week.

Oh and if you are in Sydney (or heading there soon) dont forget we have 1 extra double pass to see the Star Wars Exhibition. The competition ends on Friday so make sure you get in fast.
