Screening at MondoCon

During Summer MondoCon we screen two epic movies. On Saturday (July 27th) you can watch together with us James Cameron’s awesome live-action adaption of the japanese manga-series, Gunnm (Alita: Battle Angel), while on Sunday, we will screen Marvel’s Oscar-winner animation movie, the Spiderman – Into the Spiderverse.

Alita: Battle Angel

Screening: 2019. July 27th, 4pm, Main Stage, English dub & Hungarian subtitles

Among anime fans Alita recieved the same level of cult status and recognition just as other amazing japanese cyberpunk stories, like Akira and Ghost in the Shell. Alita is an iconic manga and anime that all fans should see at least once in their lifetime.

Alita originally started off as a manga-series, titled Gunnm. James Cameron learned about the story right before he started filming his Oscar-winner epic drama, Titanic. Actually, he first met with the anime-adaption of the manga. Once he finished the work on Titanic, he researched the original manga and fell in love with it. Thus, that time he decided: he will make a live-action movie based on that! He decided this 20 years ago. And now, the film became a reality.

In the live-action version of Alita, we get to know a cyborg girl, who is found in Iron City’s junkyard by Dr Ido. Dr Ido is a cyber doctor who brings home the girl and fixes her. Once the girl awakens she has no memories of her past. While investigating her origins she learns that she is a weapon from the past, and she needs to face with her bloody past, and at the same time, she also needs to face with her emotions from fury, vengeance and love.

Spiderman – Into the Spider-verse

Screening: 2019. July 28th, 4pm, Main Stage, Hungarian dub

The Spider-verse is like a strong coffee mixed with Red Bull – it’s an action-based animation feature film that can’t let you blink even for a second for 2 whole hours. No wonder it became the first Oscar-winner animation film credited by Marvel.

The story takes place after Peter Parker got defeated by his biggest enemies. Dr Octopus, Sandman, Electro, Kraven and Vulture joined forces to take him down. However, a young kid on Earth got bitten by a genetically modified spider (again). He is Miles Morales, a black and Spanish parents’ kid, who is living an ordinary life, with a peaceful family and with an uncle, who is actually a criminal… But he has more special powers compared to the original Spiderman. He can turn himself invisible to others and can paralyze people by touching them. But he has more powerful enemies, too, the most dangerous among them is Scorpion.

This time Spiderman appears in the form of an animation. Two genius mind worked together to bring it to life – Chris Miller and Phil Lord. Previously, they worked on the Jump Street films, the LEGO movies and Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs.
