Updated List of Yatterman, Miike, and Sakurai Events ~ NYCC

An update from MediumAtLarge on the Yatterman, Miike, and Sho events. I think by now, it is official Sho will not be signing autographs...but will be at the events! :)

Meet Yatterman Star Sho Sakurai
2:45 PM, Friday, February 6, Yatterman / Nikkatsu Booth (#1315) (Jacob Javits Center)
Star of Yatterman and Japan’s top pop idol Sho Sakurai makes a rare personal appearance for his fans, many of whom have come from very far away to see him. Stop by the booth to hear his personal greeting to his fans and to get a glimpse at one of Japan’s top stars. (Please note that Sakurai’s time will be limited and that his appearance is subject to change or cancellation for security reasons. All photography and video recording of Sakurai is strictly prohibited, and he is unable to sign autographs at this time.)

Yatterman Booth
Booth #1315 (Jacob Javits Center)
Get a glimpse of Yatterman all weekend long at the Nikkatsu booth on the New York Comic Con show floor. Additionally, on Friday, February 6, tickets for that night’s 8:00 pm World Premiere screening of Yatterman will be distributed free to fans beginning promptly at 3:00 — ask a booth staff member for your ticket. (Ticket numbers are limited and do not guarantee movie admission.)

Yatterman Panel
4:00 PM, Friday, February 6, IGN Theater (Jacob Javits Center)
Fans have been waiting for Takashi Miike to create a giant robot movie for years, and finally it’s here! Takashi Miike will premiere the first nine minutes of Yatterman for the first time anywhere in the world at NYCC's Yatterman panel and then speak about the film and take questions from fans in a panel moderated by Subway Cinema.

Yatterman Signing
4:00 PM, Friday, February 6, IGN Theater (Jacob Javits Center)
Following the Yatterman panel, director Takashi Miike will be signing autographs for fans for a limited time. Sakurai will not be signing autographs at NYCC.

Yatterman World Premiere
8:00 PM, Friday, February 6, Directors Guild Theater (110 West 57th Street)
This is it! The first time the brand-new, live-action, Japanese feature film Yatterman is screened anywhere in the world, and New York Comic Con, Subway Cinema, and Nikkatsu are all thrilled to open this event to fans. Free tickets to the Yatterman premiere will be distributed to fans on Friday, February 6 at the Nikkatsu booth (#1315), starting at 3:00 pm. Takashi Miike and Sho Sakurai will both be present at this special event. Please note, though, that Sakurai's appearance is subject to change or cancellation for security reasons. Tickets are subject to limited availability and access to the cinema is on a strictly first-come, first-served basis; arrive early to guarantee your seat. Note that no cameras or recording devices will be allowed inside the DGA Theater.

New York Comic Con is excited to welcome Miike, Sakurai, and Yatterman to New York. We know plans have changed since our original announcement, and we hope fans understand the reason for these changes. Not present in New York Comic Con's revised Yatterman plans are Sho Sakurai's autographing signing and a second screening of Yatterman, originally scheduled for Saturday night. Both of these events have been canceled due to security concerns. We know fans have been clamoring for more information and more access to Sakurai, and NYCC has been working with all our partners to make this a possibility, but there are some security issues we cannot get around, and as such, we have to announce this revised schedule.
