HAYWARD, CA (July 23rd 2019) - The Amazon Prime Video Experience was spectacular this year. One of the main highlights of the entire con for Old Ninja and Kr0nus was covering The Boys Red Carpet and attending the fan premiere party that screened the first 2 episodes of The Boys. The Boys is not going to disappoint! Amazon Prime Video brought more than The Boys though. Upcoming Victorian Fantasy series Carnival Row and the much anticipated return of the hit SciFi show The Expanse also had their own events at SDCC19.
Fans didn’t mind lining up around the block to experience the offsite activation all week, going crazy for the erected replica sets that brought the Prime Video series’ to life. (3,000 fans a day with wait times almost 3 hours!)
The 60,000 square-foot immersive activation was the place to be this convention as it played host to three celeb-filled parties, with notable appearances from Orlando Bloom, Cara Delevingne and Chase Crawford - who was even surprised with a birthday cake at the The Boys screening premiere.
San Diego Mayor Kevin Faulconer even stopped by the Amazon Prime Video Experience, who Orlando Bloom claims to have run out of the Carnival Row activation due to the immigration storyline.
Orlando and Cara showed up in Cosplay costumes at the Carnival Row screening and were dancing on chairs and the fans did not know it was them. The director told the audience that they couldn’t show up b/c they went to the EW party… THEN they took off the costumes and the fans went nuts. They introduced the series and sat in the front row to watch with the guests.

The Director of the Boys introduced Chace and said “you loved him in Gossip Girls but you will Hate him in this series.” Also all cast/crew were saying Fuck every other word since it’s used a lot in the series.
