Netflix’s highly anticipated action thriller The Gray Man premieres soon. In fact, it will drop the same weekend as San Diego Comic-Con. So, the Netflix team is doing a special launch event for fans to celebrate the premiere over at SDCC.
Head outside the convention center to undergo The Gray Man Training Program. It’s an interactive escape experience set on a tram car, inspired by the chase scene in the new film. You’ll encounter different obstacles and special effects as part of your timed mission. Here’s the official description of The Gray Man Training Program from Netflix:
Once aboard the tram, fans will have to prove they have what it takes to become the next Gray Man in a test of skill, strength, and speed while transporting a top secret file to safety before the mercenaries catch up and the time runs out. The heart pounding mission will include various obstacles and special effects, and will culminate in a rooftop sprint as fans race against the clock to complete the mission. Fans will leave with a badass customized social takeaway that puts them at the center of their own action film.
You can find The Gray Man Training Program at the ABM Parking Lot on the corner of First Ave. and Island Ave. The experience will be open Thursday – Saturday from 10am – 7pm, and Sunday 11am – 4pm.
Inside the San Diego Convention Center you can also get your Gray Man fix. Just head over to the Netflix booth on the convention floor for giveaways, exclusive merch, and more. Since The Gray Man premieres Friday, July 22, the film will “take over” the Netflix booth that day. (But don’t worry. You can get your fix of the upcoming movie and Netflix’s other properties any time at the streamer’s booth.)
In The Gray Man, the CIA’s most skilled operative (Ryan Gosling)—whose true identity is known to none—accidentally uncovers dark agency secrets, leading a psychopathic former colleague (Chris Evans) to put a bounty on his head, setting off a global manhunt by international assassins. Directed by Joe and Anthony Russo, The Gray Man also co-stars Ana de Armas, Jessica Henwick, Wagner Moura, Dhanush, Billy Bob Thornton, Alfre Woodard, Regé-Jean Page, Julia Butters and more.
San Diego Comic-Con runs from Thursday, July 21 – Sunday, July 24.
The Gray Man premieres on Netflix July 22.
