How could they?


Goonie fans are wondering with bated breath which celebrities from the movie will attend the much-anticipated 30th anniversary June 5 to 7 here in Astoria. Pictured, some of the cast members in a screen shot from the movie. But don’t get your hopes up, there’s no spoiler here — sadly, the Ear has no idea who will show up.

However, the Ear does know who won’t be coming, thanks to an article at ( Niagara Falls, N.Y., is holding a Comic Con the exact same weekend as Astoria’s Goonie celebration (the nerve!), and three actors from the movie will be celebrating all three days of the anniversary there, instead of here: Sean Astin (Mikey), Robert Davi (Jake Fratelli) and Joe Pantoliano (Francis Fratelli). How could they?
