Taco Bell is Bringing ‘Demolition Man’ Nacho Fries of the Future to San Diego Comic-Con 2018

2018 marks the 25th anniversary of the Warner Bros. film Demolition Man, and to celebrate, San Diego Comic-Con attendees are in for a tasty treat.

The 1993 film (starring Sylvester Stallone and Wesley Snipes) is set in the year 2032, and predicted a dystopian future in which Taco Bell was the only restaurant to survive the “franchise wars”, so all restaurants became Taco Bell. Also in this future, Taco Bell’s Nacho Fries (seasoned fries served with nacho dipping sauce, the stuff of legends) never left the menu.

Taco Bell will be bringing their Nacho Fries back to menus nationwide on July 12, but later in the month during San Diego Comic-Con, on Thursday, July 19 – Saturday, July 21. They will offer a Demolition Man pop-up and a futuristic and upscale Taco Bell dining experience near the convention center, where you’ll presumably be able to pick up some Nacho Fries while you wait. You can stop by 658 Fifth Ave in San Diego from 6PM-12AM nightly for free food, and no badge is required. There will also be exclusive Taco Bell and Demolition Man merchandise available for purchase.

While not confirmed, it’s also possible that WB has bigger plans for the 25th anniversary of the film. We already know Wesley Snipes will be in appearance for a Cut Throat City panel with RZA, so we could be looking at a reunion somewhere inside the convention center.

Nacho Fries will be available for a limited time a la carte for $1.29 and also served Supreme for $2.49 or BellGrande for $3.49, topped with classic Taco Bell add-ons including beef, nacho cheese sauce, tomatoes and sour cream and also in a $5 box with Nacho Fries, a Doritos® Locos Taco, a Beefy 5-Layer Burrito and Medium Drink.
