It’s a whole New Year, it’s the first Cup O’ Tea of 2015 – and the next twelve months promises to be rather exciting from all quarters of the nerd universe! We kick things of with a look forward to what we can expect in the forthcoming weeks as we get ready for badge sales for both WonderCon and San Diego Comic-Con, as well as talking about what we can expect to see at both events, and cons across the globe.

UPDATE (9th January 2014): Courtesy of Universal Pictures, Last Exit To Nowhere and new sci-fi thriller Ex Machina, this weeks #CupOTeaSDCC Hangout has something special up its sleeve…

…its short sleeves, as it happens. A film we are incredibly excited about at +An Englishman In San Diego is the forthcoming sci-fi thriller from Sunshine/Dredd scribe Alex Garland, Ex Machina, which marks Garland’s directorial debut. Ex Machina tells the story of a computer coder who wins the chance to spend a week at the house in the mountains belonging to the CEO of the company works for, only to find he has to participate in an experiment involving a new brand of artificial intelligence.

Starring Domhnall Gleeson (About Time), Oscar Issac (Inside Llewyn Davis) and Alicia Vikander (The Fifth Estate), this is setting up to be the first impressive sci-fi movie of the year and we’ve been gagging for this for AGES!

Well, thanks to Universal Pictures UK, we have bagged ourselves a bit of a beauty: a limited edition tee, designed by those wonderful boys and girls at Last Exit to Nowhere, the home of movie-themed tees. They’re still in the process of finalising the design as we speak (should be revealed on their blog very shortly – before the weekend would be ace, chaps!) and we’ve got one to give away on this weeks Hangout!

Full details on how you can win this sweet tee will be revealed during the Hangout and will be available for entrants during the following week (for those who watch and listen later, on SoundCloud or iTunes): join us from 10am PT/1pm ET/6pm GMT, this Sunday!
