A massive onsite activation was on display for attendees of San Diego Comic-Con (SDCC) for the new Amazon Prime Video show “Carnival Row.” The show is a Victorian fantasy where immigrant creatures and humans coexist, although not in a friendly way. The show will star Orlando Bloom as a human detective and Cara Delevingne as a faerie in a dangerous love affair. On the ground at SDCC, fans were able to enter a secret lounge for a special performance by the creatures. Check out our photos and video below.

The petition (since removed from their website) demanded that Netflix remove the series from the airwaves, and asked signers to send the message to “…Netflix that we will not stand silent as they destroy the barriers of horror we still have for evil.” The American Society for the Defense of Tradition, Family, and Property was able to elicit over 20,000 signatures before they realized that they were petitioning the wrong streaming service. read more
