BREAKING MOVIE NEWS
I learned the stench a mass of nerds camping out leaves. I felt the horrific annoyance of going through an exit and having to walk in a giant circle to get back to an entrance. For the first time, I truly took it all in.
The hordes who attend Comic Con every year might be fueled by star power, but sometimes, panels involving those who work behind the cameras are actually just as riveting.

Just as Robert Downey Jr. makes every movie he's in better, he also improves photo ops, and as you can see below the gathering of the baby Iron Men got a whole lot more exciting when the man himself took the stage to join the kids
Well, folks, that's a wrap. The doors of the San Diego Convention Center have closed as yet another year of Comic Con has ended. We laughed, we cried, we waited on really long lines, but it was all for a good cause: covering the hell out of the event so all of you readers could feel like you were right there with us. The entire Cinema Blend team has returned to their respective parts of the world, but we're not quite done with Comic Con just yet.
I decided that I would find and take pictures of all Spider-Men that I could find, which joyusly lead me to a bunch of kids who were at Comic Con because they are fans of Spider-Man. Yes. I was happy
Two years ago Marvel Studios absolutely blew the doors off of Hall H at San Diego Comic Con 2010.

Itís been nearly a decade since Peter Jackson took us back to the world of Middle Earth, but that streak ends this December. Adapting the first novel written by J.R.R.

Next year director Zack Snyder will be taking us back the city of Metropolis...
Guillermo Del Toro loves Comic Con. Every year that he has a film coming out the Hellboy director his way down to San Diego to visit his fans and give them a glimpse at his new project. Fortunately for us, 2012 is one of those years. For the last few months Del Toro has been hard at work putting together Pacific Rim his new sci-fi epic about giant robots fighting against giant monsters for the future of mankind.
I have just arrived in the absolutely packed convention center and I am now just waiting for the panel to begin. We still donít know who exactly will be on hand to answer questions and show off footage, but if you refresh this article and follow our live blog below I will guide you through every minute. And come back later to read full descriptions of all the Django Unchained footage we get to see!
I woke up this morning with no idea of what Con was going to be, and now I have a better idea of what Con is going to be, but feel a little bad for being semi-attracted to an underage Pikachu (you'll see - why'd she have to make a cute face?)
This year, the first panel of Comic Con is also one of the biggest. It's time for the screaming tween girls and their moms to descend upon Hall H one last time, as the panel for the final Twilight movie-- The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn-Part 2 that is-- gives fans their first look at the final chapter of Bella and Edward's vampiric romance
On Preview Night, from the first moment the doors open, the exhibit hall at San Diego Comic Con is so nightmarishly crowded you consider yourself lucky just to move forward sometimes.

Over at the Hard Rock Hotel, also adjacent to the convention center, a mysterious spaceship seems to have crash landed-- a spaceship with ties to Matt Damon, District 9 director Neill Blomkamp, and their new movie Elysium.

With the final installment in the feature adaptation of Stephenie Meyer's popular vampire series set to arrive in theaters this fall, it's not surprising to learn that fans are once again eager enough to get into the Twilight panel at Comic Con in San Diego to camp out days in advance. The occasion is likely to be an exciting one for fans sharing their love for the books...
Say what you will about what we now can't avoid calling The Expendables franchise, but they sure know how to market to their strengths. The first movie was a medicore action movie that got attention for its crammed all-star cast, and now there's a sequel coming with even more old-school stars
San Diego Comic Con is pure madness. For five straight days the southern California city is packed to the brim with geeks from around the world running from panel to panel trying to see absolutely everything that they can. Fortunately, the organizers of the event seem to understand us and Sunday is classically the slowest day of the convention. But that doesnít mean there isnít some cool stuff going down too.

It's no secret how much I love Nicolas Winding Refn's Drive. I saw the film at the Los Angeles Film Festival in June and I don't believe a day since that I haven't referenced it or even thought about it in some way. Hands down it is my favorite film of the year. Needless to say I've been dying to talk to the people who made the film and at this year's Comic Con I got just that opportunity, invited to participate in a roundtable interview with the film's director.
