Fast And Furious 7, Terminator And 3 Other Surprises We Want At Comic-Con
At this stage of the game, the major studios have revealed which projects they are bringing to San Diego Comic-Con. And the list of anticipated titles was almost as significant as the movies we didn’t see on the roster of programmed panels. Of course, Comic-Con is a time of geeky surprises, when a panel concludes with, "Oh wait, do we have time for one more piece of footage?" And it’s in those moments where we tend to find some passionate magic.
Knowing which studios are expected to be in town for San Diego Comic-Con, we put together a Surprise Wish List of in-development blockbusters that could bring a presentation at the last minute to next weekend’s fan-driven heaven. These are movies that would appeal directly to the gathered masses at Comic-Con, and they have been in some state of filming prior to the festivities, meaning that some sort of footage presentation isn’t far-fetched. Could these massive movies shock fans with unexpected footage? Fingers are crossed, starting with:
Fast & Furious 7James Wan’s first Fast & Furious film has been plagued by terrible obstacles – the death of leading man Paul Walker being the largest – but production on the highly-anticipated sequel recently wrapped, and the year-long countdown for the unveiling of this latest Fast film is underway. Everything about the Fast & Furious 7 mood seems to be a celebration of the legacy of what the series has accomplished. It sounds like it is going to be a send off to Walker, and a pat on the back for the crew who fought hard to honor his contributions. Universal does not have a panel planned for Hall H, though they are partnered with Legendary Pictures, who will hold court in the massive auditorium on Saturday. Right now, they are debuting Crimson Peak and As Above, So Below. Could a Fast 7 footage reel tag the end of that panel? From what I hear, Vin Diesel and Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson could be in San Diego supporting different projects. A Fast 7 surprise would blow the roof off of Hall H.
