This year, 'Underworld' star Kate Beckinsale, 'Gotham' star Camren Bicondova, and 'Alien' and 'Ghostbusters' star Sigourney Weaver are headliners for the star-studded event.
Returning to Houston is 'Sons of Anarchy' star Charlie Hunnam, who fans were unable to meet last month after alleged financial and internal struggles kept the stars from participating at Space City Comic Con.
