San Antonio's inaugural Celebrity Fan Fest just swooped in with a big announcement. On October 17, the homegrown event announced that Ben Affleck, Hollywood superstar/Academy Award winner/the best part of Good Will Hunting, is heading to Alamo City.
Affleck, who recently returned from a much publicized stint in rehab, will join his fellow Justice League co-stars Jason Momoa and Ray Fisher during the two-day convention.
"We couldn’t be more excited to welcome him to Celebrity Fan Fest and offer his many fans the once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to meet him in-person on Sunday, November 11,” said PMX Events president Bob Wills in a release. PMX is the San Antonio-based entertainment company producing the event alongside presenting sponsor Thomas J. Henry patriarch of San Antonio's own wannabe celebrity family, Los Henrys.
Celebrity Fan Fest takes over the JW Marriott Hill Country Resort & Spa November 10-11 for a weekend of celebrity appearances and panels, photo ops, special attractions, and more. Previously announced talent includes Joe Flanigan, Jewel Staite, David Anders, and Aly Michalka.
Tickets for Celebrity Fan Fest are limited, and range in price depending on the experience. (Sort of a choose-your-own-adventure for manufactured celebrity experiences.) For example, a photo op/admission combo session with Ben Affleck is priced at $269 for two whereas a Jason Momoa photo op for two will only set you back $179.
According to a press release, the Celebrity Fan Fest is merely a precursor to the 2019 Celebrity Movie Con, which is also produced by PMX. While details are scarce about the movie convention, fingers crossed Matt Damon makes an appearance.
