What’s On: Jul 31 – Aug 6


The Final Season of Preacher, more Fast and the Furious plus an Infinity War and Endgame double feature in cinemas, Science in Adelaide and GammaCon all weekend long in Canberra. Here is your guide to everything happening this week in Geek across Australia.

1On Streaming/TV

In streaming, this week is the final season of the AWESOME adaption of the Garth Ennis comic Preacher. If you haven’t been watching this one we can give you a few reasons, but if you are already caught up the new season starts this Monday on STAN.

AND if you are thirsty for more Garth Ennis live-action comic adaptions by Seth Rogan you can jump straight over to The Boys on Amazon Prime which came out last Friday.

2In Cinemas

In Cinemas this week is not the live-action Calvin and Hobbes gritty live-action film we were hoping for but instead the Rock in the Fast and the Furious spin-off Hobbs & Shaw. We already know the F&F franchise has already jumped the Lamborghini over the shark 3 films ago so we are well prepared for the type of popcorn film this might be.

Also in selected cinemas around the country on Saturday is a special double feature of Infinity War back to back with Endgame to raise money for curinghomesickness.org. It’s only on selected Event Cinemas in Queensland, New South Wales, South Australia and Perth so check the listing to check for one near you.

3Stuff To Go Do

Get yourself to Canberra this weekend for the biggest event on the ACT calendar with GAMMACon happening all weekend long. GammaCon is a 100% volunteer-run event covering all things Pop Culture from comics and gaming to cosplay and collectibles. With local special guests and an After Dark events on Saturday night, this is your entire weekend covered.

SCIENCE! YEAH! That’s is what is on this weekend in Adelaide with Science Alive a science specific event with 60 different exhbitors happening at the Adelaide showgrounds this Saturday. Let’s face it, we had you at ‘Science’.

And Perth doesn’t miss out with one of our favourite events this weekend with Respawn hosting a Keanu Reeves Party on Saturday. Rock up with your favourite Keanu cosplay for a breathtaking night of the Internet’s favourite celebrity.
