San Diego Comic Con or SDCC 2016 is officially underway tonight. San Diego is a beautiful city on any given day but it comes alive with all kinds of nerd-tastic attractions when Comic Con rolls around. Wednesday night is called the preview night, letting vendors show off some of their cool new items. There are also some other special events on preview night like screenings, parties and a moving Trekkie tribute to the recently deceased Anton Yelchin, who played Pavel Chekov in the new Star Trek movies. Lucky lottery winners got to meet the cast of the newest movie Star Trek Beyond before an exclusive premier of the film on an outdoor IMAX screen. They were also treated to music and fireworks, but I would have settled for just Chris Pine. SDCC preview night is enough to exhaust even the most seasoned fan so I wanted to share some of the great pics from tonight’s events with you. In case you are like me and feeling left out of the festivities; these pictures should help make you feel a little closer to the action.
