Transcript

Eronita: That looks scary!
Ossie: That looks scary!
Eronita: Who’s that? (laughs) Hi guys, it’s Eronita here on the Get Into Film channel and right now I’m at Comic-Con trying to figure out what’s going on, so I asked for some help.
Ossie: Hi, I’m Ossie. This is awesome! (looking at people in costume passing by) Ben Kenobi!
Eronita: Is she a chicken?
Ossie: Yeah.
Eronita: I never knew that there was going to be this many people dressed up in so many costumes.
Ossie: No! (pointing at a group of people) They’re all dressed as Transformers. Even the baby! That’s really cool. That’s really cool.
Eronita: What are you from?
Predator: Predator.
Eronita: Predator? I can’t hear anything!
Soldier: You look very cool.
Ossie: Thank you, you too.
Soldier: Can I … Shall we have a fight now, or something?
Ossie: Yeah, OK. Yeah, sure, why not? I won … ‘cos Captain America wins every time! Onto the orange carpet … (in the Marvel area) I’m home! Oh, it’s Back to the Future! That is really cool!
Eronita: This is my kind of car!
Brain monitor: You’re going to go take a seat in the chair and we’ll put the brain monitoring headset on so you can see your brain in action, and then you’ll watch a few minutes of Up in 3D, and then you’ll get to see what your brain looks like while you’re watching a film.
Ossie: That was awesome!
Eronita: I’m going to be the baddie in Terminator. I’m going to get the highest score! (plays the game)
Ossie: Nine! No!
Eronita: Who won?
Ossie: You! … I was cooler.
Eronita: That’s a Pokemon, right?
Ossie: Yeah.
Eronita: Oh my God, I got that right!
Ossie: She actually got one right!
Eronita: (tries on a hat) So what do you think?
Ossie: Hatty.
Eronita: But I love it! (to a Minion) Can I have a hug? Thank you! So, this is called Syfy, and when you go inside you strike a pose and it’s like you’re someone from Matrix.
Syfy man: (watching the video) Oh! And you threw it as well!
Ossie: That’s the end of the day. That was awesome, wasn’t it?
Eronita: Yeah, I could see why people would like that sort of stuff. (at the Jurassic World poster) It’s 3D.
Ossie: It’s 3D!
Eronita: (wearing a blue wig) I love it. Don’t forget to follow us on Instagram, Twitter and Facebook. Also, subscribe to our YouTube channel and leave comments below. Bye!
