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. Until then, be sure to stay posted here as we will be sure to update on all of the cool movies, television shows and video games headed to the expo.
If you haven't been to Comic Con before, Hall H is the enormous room where the most high-profile panels are held each year, from the first footage screened from Kick-Ass to Marvel's own panel last year, which wowed everyone with very early footage from Captain America then brought the house down by bringing the entire Avengers cast out onstage.
The major studios have been spending big bucks on Comic Con promotion for movies like Megamind and Skyline and the truth is that no one really cares. For every really amazing Tron: Legacy promotion there are twenty movie promotions at Comic Con that no one pays any attention to.
