Note: The Travel Planners Hotel Reservation web site WILL NOT BE OPEN until 9:00 AM Pacific time on Tuesday, April 8!

Important note: We are offering this “sneak peek” at the hotels in our block and their rates and shuttle availability, but HOTEL RESERVATIONS DO NOT OPEN UNTIL April 8, 2014 at 9::00 AM Pacific Time (12:00 PM Eastern time). You cannot request your hotel through the Comic-Con reservation service at these special rates until then. This information is presented early to allow you to be better prepared when the reservation process goes live on that day.

Please keep in mind that the Travel Planners hotel request form website is best accessed from a desktop computer. Accessing this form from a tablet or smartphone device may slow your progress. We highly recommend you use a desktop computer during this hotel request process.

The following information pertains to any room booked through Travel Planners for Comic-Con 2014:

As everyone knows from past experience, Comic-Con’s discounted hotel rates means rooms sell out very quickly. We have come up with a number of solutions that we think will help the reservation process:

In an effort to equalize the amount of time each participant spends on the request form, a total of six (6) hotel choices will be required. No participant can provide more, or less, than 6 hotel choices.

• There are more hotel rooms available than ever before. Most of them are on the Comic-Con Shuttle routes.

• Once confirmed, all hotel reservations will require a deposit of two nights’ room rate and tax for each room booked. This will encourage people to release unwanted rooms in advance so people on the wait list can reserve them.

• Hotel reservation deposits are fully refundable if cancelled by April 30, 2014.

• For cancellations received from May 1 to June 1, 2014, a cancellation fee equal to one night’s room and tax will be charged. The cancellation fee will be deducted from your deposit.

• Starting on June 2, 2014, ALL DEPOSITS ARE NONREFUNDABLE.

Starting at 9:00 AM Pacific Time on April 8, 2014, you will be able to access the reservation request form via the link in your email or at the top of this page or by calling 1-877-55-COMIC (1-877-552-6642) or 212-532-1660. PLEASE DO NOT CALL BEFORE APRIL 8 AT 9:00 AM PACIFIC TIME.

• You’ll be required to provide six (6) hotel choices in order of preference.

• All reservation requests will be processed in date/time stamp order. Forms received within three seconds of each other are considered to have arrived at the same time and will be processed in a random order within that three-second grouping.

• A recap e-mail listing the hotel choices you submitted to Travel Planners will be sent to you within 48 hours. Please review it to make sure it is correct and follow the directions in the e-mail if the information is incorrect.

• You will get your reservation confirmation e-mail listing the hotel or hotels where you have reservations no later than April 10, 2014. If you are happy with your hotels, please follow the directions on your confirmation and go back online to pay the required deposit within 72 hours of receiving your confirmation or your reservation will be cancelled. If you are not happy with your hotel and do not plan to confirm your reservation, please log on and cancel your reservation so another attendee can have a chance at getting a room.

• All reservations require an advance deposit equal to two nights’ room rate and tax. Deposits are required when you log back in to guarantee your reservation and must be submitted within 72 hours of receiving your confirmation or you will lose your reservation and you will not have a hotel room for Comic-Con.

• Hotel reservation deposits are fully refundable if cancelled by April 30, 2014.

• For cancellations from May 1 to June 1, 2014, a cancellation fee equal to one night’s room rate plus tax will be charged per room.  The cancellation fee will be deducted from your deposit(s).

Starting on June 2, 2014, ALL DEPOSITS ARE NON-REFUNDABLE.

Each hotel’s payment policies vary; the date that your total balance is due will be dependent upon the policies of your hotel. All hotels place a deposit on your credit card or debit card when you check in and charge the balance at check out. Please ask your hotel for their policy.

As Comic-Con gets closer, hotel rooms do free up. We urge everyone who plans on making a hotel reservation for the event to keep checking back to this page for updated room availability. If you don’t get your first choice on April 8, 2014, check back later to see if the hotel you prefer is available.

Please note that the hotel rates listed are starting rates and are subject to change.


AFTER APRIL 23:

TO MAKE RESERVATIONS:

TO MAKE CHANGES:

Changes must be made by visiting this page and clicking on the “Make Your Hotel Reservations” button or by phone at 1-877-55-COMIC (1-877-552-6642). Changes must be received 14 days prior to arrival; changes are on a by-request basis and are subject to availability/discretion of the hotel.

NOTE: Hotel rates include an $8.00 per night reimbursement to Comic-Con to help defray shuttle and convention costs (this charge is subject to change). San Diego city blocks are small compared to other cities and take approximately 2–3 minutes to walk. You may find walking in the morning is a great way to explore San Diego and find new places for dinner or lunch or shopping.


PLEASE NOTE: Your reservations will be booked based on room availability. Bed type and special requests are not guaranteed. These requests will be noted with the hotel, but are subject to hotel availability at the time of check-in. Currently, hotels in San Diego charge a Transient Occupancy tax of 10.565%, a Tourism Marketing assessment of 2% and parking fees, all of which are subject to change without notice. Hotel rates are not guaranteed until booked and confirmed. Hotel rates may vary by number of occupants and other requested services. Comic-Con and Travel Planners reserve the right to correct any identified errors.

Comic-Con 2014 Returning Volunteer Registration Opens Today, February 4th at 9:00am!

Comic-Con 2014 - Volunteer Registration - SDCC - HeaderFor those who completed at least one volunteer assignment in 2013, you will have the first chance to register as a volunteer today, February 4, 2014!  An email from Comic-Con International with instructions on how to register online through your Member ID account was sent to you last week. We are very excited to see many returning faces for 2014, so please be sure to follow the instructions in your email for registration today.

Here’s the CCI email sent to those pre-approved for 2014.

At last – what you’ve been waiting for! Beginning at 9:00 am Pacific Time on February 4, 2014, online volunteer registration for Comic-Con International 2014 will be open to YOU, our PREAPPROVED VOLUNTEERS (those who completed at least one assignment in 2013).

Instructions: Beginning at 9:00 am Pacific Time on February 4th, you may log into your Member ID, click on the “VOLUNTEERS” tab and you will see the link for online volunteer registration. Click on the link and follow the instructions. It’s easy! You’ll get an email confirmation at the end of the registration process.

Only those on our preapproved list will be able to see the link when they log in to their Member ID.  You will have 10 days to sign up to volunteer for 2014.  Preapproved volunteer registration will close on February 13, 2014 at 5:30 pm Pacific Time.  At a later date, we will open online volunteer registration to those on the Interest List. Once we reach our limit, we will close the volunteer program and there will be no further opportunities to register to volunteer for 2014.

Hope to see you in 2014!

Our volunteer program is so popular that the Volunteer Interest List for Comic-Con 2014 reached capacity early this year. Over 11,000 of you have expressed an interest to volunteer this year and we wish we could take every single one of you! For those of you who are already on the Interest List, please keep in mind that space is extremely limited and not all of you will be accepted. Once returning volunteer registration has closed, check your email frequently for the announcement regarding Interest List registration. We anticipate that volunteer registration for those on the Interest List will reach capacity the same day that it opens.

If you did not volunteer in 2013 or did not sign up for the 2014 Volunteer Interest List, you will not be able to volunteer for Comic-Con this year, but rest assured there will be another opportunity to express your interest in the 2015 volunteer program sometime after Comic-Con 2014.  And please don’t forget about our sister show, WonderCon Anaheim! WonderCon Anaheim also utilizes a large volunteer pool and will have open volunteer registration sometime in March.

For more information, please click here to visit the Comic-Con Volunteers page.

Professional Registration Opens Today at 10am!

Comic-Con 2014 - Professional Badge Registration - SDCC - HeaderToday is the day that Professionals (Creative, not Trade) will be able to register for San Diego Comic-Con 2014. Hopefully, all of the changes and improvements that EPIC Registration will make things easier for all attendees. The following is the email that was sent to those registering for their Creative Professional Badge.

Dear Professional,

Mark your calendar! Comic-Con International 2014 professional badge registration will open on January 29, at 10:00 a.m. Pacific Time (PT). This email is a courtesy notice to inform you of the registration date and time. The actual registration link and instructions will be sent to you in a separate email, at least 48 hours prior to registration. Please keep an eye on your email inbox for this important notification.

The professional badge registration period does not have a predetermined close date and will close – without notification – when professional badges are no longer available.

We strongly encourage you to register for your Comic-Con professional badge as early as possible! Verified and approved professionals are not guaranteed a Comic-Con badge for 2014. Each professional may register one complimentary guest and/or one paid guest while supplies last. Professional and guest badges in both categories (paid or complimentary) are limited and not all guests can be accommodated. We anticipate that complimentary guest badges may reach capacity within a few hours of the opening of registration. Be sure to register guests at the same time you register for your own badge, as guest badges may not be available if you return to register them at a later date.

Professional guest badges can be used to register an adult or junior guest (age 13 to 17). The badge price is the same ($200), whether the guest is a junior or an adult, when purchased through professional registration. To receive the attendee junior badge price of $100, we recommend purchasing an attendee junior badge during Open Online Registration for the general public. Children age 12 and under are free with a professional badge and do not count toward your guest limit. Child badges must be registered onsite at Industry Registration in Lobby D.

Trade professional registration will open later this spring. Trade professionals may not register for a Comic-Con badge on January 29, 2014.

For more information on Comic-Con professional badge registration, please visit http://www.comic-con.org/cci/professionals

If you are registering today, make sure you do it asap with your Guest included in your registration. The complimentary and paid guest allotment has gone down considerably from previous years. If you are not sure, just do it. Canceling is easier than trying to get one in the future as badges are limited. It makes sense that Professional Registration is done prior to Attendee Badge Registration because if some reason you are not approved you can purchase an Attendee Badge. It will be interesting to hear comments from those registering today. Keep an eye on Twitter for those positive and negative comments! This may give insight in how good or bad it will be for those registering for Attendee Badges.

Comic-Con Press Terms & Conditions

There will be NO onsite registration. Applications and verification materials must be submitted by December 13, 2013. Verified press must register online each year they plan to attend, and provide verification materials every two years.
A Comic-Con press badge is good for entry to all of the events held at Comic-Con (space permitting). The Comic-Con press badge, however, does not allow for early entry into the Exhibit Hall, programming rooms, events, or guaranteed seating. Please keep in mind that press registration is a courtesy and your Comic-Con press badge is non-transferable. You may not transfer or sell your Comic-Con press badge. Unfortunately, a press badge does not allow for plus ones, guests, or child badges.
Press will not be allowed into the Exhibit Hall prior to 3:00 pm on Wednesday, July 23, or during closed Exhibit Hall hours. There are no exceptions. Any pictures posted of, or within, the Exhibit Hall prior to 3:00 pm on Wednesday, July 23, will result in the forfeiture of your Comic-Con 2014 press badge.
Because of a variety of rules governing the San Diego Convention Center and Comic-Con International, wheeled carts or handcarts are not allowed in the convention center. Additionally, camera crews, while free to roam the center, cannot set up equipment in a fixed manner (i.e. lights, chairs, etc.).
Members of the press that want to videotape, film, and/or record any matter that will be used for commercial purposes (non-news) must first obtain written permission from Comic-Con International as well as permission of the panel participants. Please email pr@comic-con.org to request the appropriate consents along with detailed information regarding your interest in recording at Comic-Con International.
PLEASE NOTE: Names, outlets, and email addresses of confirmed Comic-Con 2014 press will be made available to studios, exhibitors, programming participants, etc., prior to the convention (Comic-Con 2014 Press List).
As always, the issuance of a press badge is at the sole discretion of Comic-Con International. Please be respectful of all our attendees. A Comic-Con press badge is provided as a courtesy to cover the event. Comic-Con does not tolerate coverage that includes stunt type events, ambush interviewing or any sort of action that could make any of our attendees feel unsafe or uncomfortable.

Hasbro’s TELEPODS Line Soars with One Million Figures Sold in under One Month since ANGRY BIRDS™ STAR WARS® II App Launch

FOX Gives Series Order to New Action-Adventure Drama HIEROGLYPH!

Hieroglyph - Fox - Travis Beacham - Header - SMHigh-Concept, Epic Series Features Ancient Egypt as Backdrop for Palace Intrigue, Quests for Power and World of Magic, Gods and Goddesses

20th Century Fox Television and Chernin Entertainment to Produce Series; Screenwriter Travis Beacham (“Pacific Rim”) to Write and Executive-Produce; Miguel Sapochnik (“Fringe”) to Direct Premiere Episode

Fox Broadcasting Company (FOX) has given a 13-episode series order to HIEROGLYPH, a fantastical action-adventure show produced by 20th Century Fox Television and Chernin Entertainment, and executive-produced by Peter Chernin (NEW GIRL, Rise of the Planet of the Apes), Katherine Pope (NEW GIRL) and Travis Beacham (Pacific Rim, Clash of the Titans), who wrote the pilot script. Miguel Sapochnik (Repo Men, Fringe) will serve as an executive producer on the project and will direct the premiere episode. Production is scheduled to begin in early 2014.

Set in ancient Egypt, where fantasy and reality intertwined, HIEROGLYPH follows a notorious thief who is plucked from prison to serve the Pharoah, navigating palace intrigue, seductive concubines, criminal underbellies and even a few divine sorcerers.

“We wanted to do a show about deceit, sex, intrigue in the court and fantastical goings-on – no better place to set that than ancient Egypt,” said Kevin Reilly, Chairman of Entertainment for FOX. “Travis Beacham has an inventive mind, and he has wrapped this all together in this intoxicating new drama.”

Based on his original story idea, Travis Beacham co-wrote the screenplay with director Guillermo Del Toro for this past summer’s sci-fi hit Pacific Rim, which has grossed more than $400 million worldwide since its release in July. Beacham also co-wrote the screenplay for the hit 2010 re-imagining of the classic mythic adventure Clash of the Titans, directed by Louis Leterrier. Beacham is currently writing the sequel to Pacific Rim for Legendary. He has penned screenplays for the feature films 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea: Captain Nemo and a remake of the sci-fi classic, The Black Hole.

Chernin Entertainment produces television programs and feature films. Its current television slate includes FOX’s NEW GIRL. The company’s first feature film, Rise of Planet of the Apes, was released in August 2011 and has grossed more than $480 million at the worldwide box office. Chernin Entertainment is currently producing the sequel, Dawn of the Planet of the Apes, as well as the sequel to its successful summer comedy, The Heat.

A 21st Century Fox company, Twentieth Century Fox Television is one of the industry’s most prolific suppliers of primetime television programming and entertainment content, including the blockbuster and Emmy Award- and Golden Globe Award-winning Modern Family, the pop culture phenomenon and Golden Globe Award-winning GLEE, the celebrated anthology series American Horror Story, the hit comedies NEW GIRL and How I Met Your Mother and the longest running primetime scripted series in the history of television, THE SIMPSONS. The studio recently resurrected its Emmy Award-winning cult hit Arrested Development, and its cable production division, Fox 21, is responsible for the Emmy Award- and Golden Globe Award-winning Homeland. The studio’s newest drama, SLEEPY HOLLOW, has garnered critical acclaim, high ratings and was the first freshman show of the season to earn a renewal.

HIEROGLYPH is produced by 20th Century Fox Television and Chernin Entertainment. The series is created, written and executive-produced by Travis Beacham. Peter Chernin and Katherine Pope, as well as Miguel Sapochnik, who will direct the premiere episode, also serve as executive producers.

A note about increasing DVR penetration and year-to-year rating comparisons: Year-to-year rating comparisons based on the Live + Same Day data stream are distorted by the level of DVR penetration in the Nielsen sample, which has jumped up to 48% currently, from 45% at the same point in 2012. More viewers are watching shows on their own timetables, which may not be reflected in the overnight next day numbers. The only truly valid year-to-year comparison would be one based on the Live + 7 Day metric, once those stats are released by Nielsen.
