Grab your whip to slay Dracula on Netflix, Ninja Turtle’s creator Kevin Eastman at Supanova in Melbourne and sooo much Anime at Madman Madfest in Sydney. 2020 Con season has officially begun so here’s your guide to everything happening this week in Geek across Australia.
On Streaming this week start early with Season 3 of the excellent Warren Ellis written anime’esque Castlevania. These are pretty short seasons coming in at only 4 episodes per season and only 25 minutes each, but that means you can totally binge-watch to catch up when it starts on Thursday.
No new movies in cinemas this week but there is a ton of great things playing around the country this weekend. Our pick has to be the Melbourne IMAX with 3 sets of Double Features starting Friday. Revisit the Bride in Kill Bill Vol 1 & 2 on Friday, before Blade Runner & Blade Runner 2049 on Saturday and then Alien + Aliens on Sunday.
