BREAKING MOVIE NEWS
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. I witnessed a security guard actually shout at a woman in a motorized scooter for going the wrong way, and moments later, another man tear through a line of people
San Diego Comic Con kicks off it's 2012 exhibition with Wednesday's preview night. Of course, that's not going to stop our favorite type of fans from going all out for the first night.
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. Take a look at it below, and note that it's made by luxury car manufacturer Bugatti, of all things
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.
The official San Diego Comic Con website has posted the Saturday schedule for this yearís convention and itís filled to the brim with the movies that actually belong, including Marvelís Iron Man 3, Zack Snyderís Man of Steel, as well as upcoming epics like Peter Jacksonís The Hobbit, Guillermo Del Toroís Pacific Rim and Quentin Tarantinoís Django Unchained.
That time of year has come once again. In a couple weeks nerds from around the globe will be descending upon the southern California for the annual San Diego Comic-Con. Just as they do every year, all of the major studios will be bringing their biggest upcoming titles to show off footage and get people excited for their future blockbusters. Weíve been hearing rumors for a while now about which movies will be making their way to the convention center and which movies wonít...
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.
Fans walking past the Marvel booth at San Diego Comic Con have been gushing over the latest posters by Ryan Meinerding and Charlie Wen, co-visual development supervisors for Marvel Studios. Just like last year, when booth representatives handed out illustrations by the two meant to promote Thor and Captain America, the duo created interlocking images coinciding with next yearís Avengers release.
San Diego Comic Con's Saturday Schedule Delivers Immortals, Snow White And The Huntsman And Much More
For the past couple of days the schedule for San Diego Comic Con has been finding its way online. Wednesday through Friday already promises titles ranging from Fright Night to Twilight to Prometheus and now the Saturday schedule has been posted and features even more titles headed to the big event.
he years ago, the folks behind the scheduling at San Diego Comic Con managed to irritate much of its core fanbase. It wasn't just because Twilight: New Moon, a movie that has nothing to do with comics, was getting a Hall H panel, but because the panel was scheduled right after Fox's presentation of Avatar, meaning that all of the Twihards got in early and en masse and blocked access to fans that were looking forward to seeing the first footage from James Cameron's newest film.
Legendary Pictures is a production company that, in most years, should have a presence at San Diego Comic Con. Thanks to the contracted connection with Warner Bros., Legendary has been behind comic book adaptations including Batman Begins, Watchmen, 300, The Dark Knight and Superman Returns.
While I still wish they were doing a Hall H panel so that we could get an early look at some Avengers footage, this really is probably the best way to handle promotion at Comic Con. Instead of limiting the reach to just people in Hall H at the specific moment the panel begins, everybody with a Comic Con badge throughout the weekend may have the chance to step into the S.H.I.E.L.D. Helicarrier and possibly meet an actor playing their favorite superhero.
We here at Cinema Blend will be launching our San Diego Comic Con coverage on July 20th, when a bunch of us, including myself, head down to the Whale's Vagina.
