Middle East Film & Comic Con Returns to Dubai!

21 Feb 2015

See Jared Leto, William Shatner, Karl Urban and more in the UAE

The Middle East’s largest festival devoted to popular culture, it’s back in Dubai for the third time this April – and it’s bigger and better than ever. Actors Karl Urban, Jared Leto and Star Trek legend William Shatner are among the names jetting in for this year’s Comic-Con this April when exhibitors will showcase merchandise and collectibles related to film, TV, music, animation, gaming, comics and more. Spotting visitors partaking in a bit of ‘cosplay’ is one of the festival’s major draws, so if you like fancy dress, why not go in costume as your favourite fictional character?
