Saturday, November 05, 2016
Rhode Island Comic Con 2016, set to take place November 11 to the 13.
“Unfortunately, we are sad to say that Kate Beckinsale has to cancel her appearance for this year due to a filming conflict. In reference to her photo ops and autograph pre-sales those will all automatically be refunded back in the form of payment used to purchase them. In regards to any of her VIP packs and upgrade packs, Ticketmaster will be refunding the upgraded portion of those packages. Your admission ticket portion will remain valid. We are sorry for this cancelation, however cancelations happen with most conventions. Unfortunately, this is something that is beyond our control and we are as upset as you are,” said RI Comic Con in a statement on Facebook.
Beckinsale is know for her role as Selene in the Underworld film series, and her 2004 role in Van Helsing, Whiteout in 2009, Contraband in 2012 and total Recall in 2012.
Prior to that, she starred in the 2001 movie Pearl Harbor, as well as the comedy Serendipity. She also starred in the Aviator in 2004 and Click in 2006.
