Arctic Blasts Come To Southern California
AMC’s new historical suspense series The Terror starts on 26 March and next weekend, visitors to Wonder Con in California will get the chance to have themselves an immersive experience from the show. Here’s the details from the AMC website…
The fully immersive experience of what the characters on AMC’s The Terror went through is coming to WonderCon. AMC is inviting fans in Anaheim attending WonderCon to experience the Arctic just as the real-life crew did on their ill-fated expedition back in 1845.
The multi-sensory experience offers guests a first-hand look as a crew member aboard the ship’s disastrous trip through the desolate polar landscape. Guests will feel the bone-chilling air, smell the fear and despair and hear the horrific sounds of men fighting for their survival. Look for the experience on the Grand Plaza of the Anaheim Convention Center during the following day and times:
- Friday, March 23 – 11:30am – 8:00pm
- Saturday, March 24– 10:00am – 8:00pm
- Sunday, March 25 – 10:00am – 5:00pm
The Terror, from executive producers Ridley Scott, David Kajganich, and Soo Hugh, follows a British Royal Naval expedition as they set sail in search of the Northwest Passage. Faced with treacherous conditions, limited resources, dwindling hope, fear of the unknown and attacks by a mysterious predator, the crew is pushed to the brink of extinction. The series is speculative fiction based on the lost voyage where more than 120 crew members inexplicably disappeared. Their fate is one of the enduring mysteries of the age of exploration. This epic series features distinctive imagery and landscapes, with a visual quality that is emblematic in scale and scope of a Ridley Scott production.
The 10-episode series stars Jared Harris (The Crown, Mad Men) as Captain Francis Crozier, Tobias Menzies (Outlander) as Captain James Fitzjames, Ciarán Hinds (Game of Thrones) as Sir John Franklin, Paul Ready (Cuffs) as Dr. Henry Goodsir, Adam Nagaitis (Suffragette) as Cornelius Hickey, Nive Nielsen (The New World) as Lady Silence and Ian Hart (Neverland) as Thomas Blanky.
The Terror begins with a two-hour series premiere on Monday, 26 March at 9PM.
