The 35th Comic-Con wrapped up its four-day event on Sunday with 130,000-plus Comic-Con attendees. These fans were eager to see Hollywood’s biggest names and exclusive trailers for upcoming films and television shows.

What is Comic-Con? Well…it’s the place where fans, Hollywood hype and love for fictional universes and characters come together to create modern pop culture. It takes place for a half week each year in San Diego, California.

This year, superhero movies dominated the convention and pop culture fans were treated to tons of experiences and surprises.

“The Hunger Games,” the zombie apocalypse TV show “The Walking Dead,” HBO’s popular”Game of Thrones,” and DC Comics lineup including “Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice,” and the upcoming “Star Wars: Episode VII The Force Awakens” were all featured for screaming fans.

Many events had extra surprises. The 6,000 people attending the panel for the upcoming “Star Wars: The Force Awakens” film were escorted by Stormtroopers to a nearby outdoor venue for a surprise concert.

Which show or movie is your favorite? Would you like to attend?

Comic-Con is pronounced with a hard /C/ sound in English.

The pronunciation of ‘/C’/ generally depends upon the letter following it:

  • If the following letter is ‘E’, ‘I’ or ‘Y’, the pronunciation is “soft”.
  • If the following letter is anything else – including a space – the pronunciation is termed “hard”.

A hard ‘C’ is pronounced ‘[K]’ as in comic, con, cake, recap and class.

Practice the sound with these sentences:
