Chris Hardwick Talks Adorable Aliens and the Seriousness of Cosplay

Between moderating some of the weekend's biggest panels, singing with Tom Cruise in Hall H [5] while dressed as Bioshock's Booker DeWitt, and hosting a live podcast of his own Nerdist show with Matt Smith, Chris Hardwick's something of a Comic-Con expert at this point. We caught up with the geek guru and his girlfriend, fellow geek expert Chloe Dykstra, at The World's End party (he also hosted the movie's panel) to talk everything from cuddly aliens to steampunk cosplay.

At first glance, the new feature film Europa Report appears to be yet another dramatic, theatrical Hollywood-ization of human spaceflight, but the creators of the movie were intent on turning science fiction into science fact [18].

Orphan Black's Dylan Bruce on the Show's Buffy-Like Cult Following

You'll have to excuse Orphan Black star Dylan Bruce — who plays love interest, Paul — for the hoarse voice. In a first trip to Comic-Con, it comes with the territory. We spoke with the actor on the show's huge popularity, meeting fans, and the elevator meeting that made him geek out.

David Bradley and Mark Gatiss's New Film About the First Doctor

We can't wait for Doctor Who's 50th anniversary episode [19] — but that's not the only TV special honoring the half-century celebration of the iconic sci-fi series. An Adventure in Time and Space is a 90-minute film about the cast and crew who created the first Doctor Who, and editor Kelly Schwarze spoke with the docudrama's writer/Sherlock writer Mark Gatiss, and the film's star, actor David Bradley (who you may remember as Argus Filch in the Harry Potter movies!) to discuss the project.

What's Your Favorite Alien Flick? The World's End Cast (and Friends!) Answers

From the comedy masterminds behind Shaun of the Dead and Hot Fuzz comes The World's End, a sci-fi satire about a group of friends whose pub crawl is interrupted by an alien invasion. Tech editor Kelly Schwarze hit The World's End's red carpet to ask the film's stars Nick Frost and Simon Pegg (also a writer), as well as director Edgar Wright, panel moderator Chris Hardwick, and Sean Astin of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, what their favorite alien movie was. Funny minds must think alike — because most of them picked the same movie!

Science and Space Return to TV

One of the most excited crowds we saw at Comic-Con was during the Cosmos panel, which featured astrophysicist and Twitter star Neil deGrasse Tyson. Science is back on TV [22], and we couldn't be happier.
