Comic-Con has come and gone, as has Screen Junkies from San Diego. It was our first ever trip down to Comic-Con and it will not be our last, but we learned a lot. Mostly, we learned that you have to surrender to the fact that you can’t cover EVERYTHING at Comic-Con. Here’s everything we DID cover:
G4’s ATTACK OF THE SHOW
Video clips and a rundown of Olivia Munn, Kevin Pereira, Blair Butler and the producers’ AOTS presentation. Includes a clip of Comic-Con’s first ever "Nerd Rave!"
LOST: THE FINAL SEASON
Co-creators Damon Lindelof & Carlton Cuse are joined by a bevy of the hit show’s stars for a presentation of Season 6. Includes video clips (of course), but does not include major spoilers (of course).
DISTRICT 9 SNEAK/SPOILER-FREE REVIEW
Ace Screen Junkie Spencer Vickers sees a sneak peek of the Neill Blomkamp-directed, Peter Jackson-produced sci-fi violence-fest and promptly writes an open letter to the studio execs that killed HALO to remind them of their own stupidity for having ever committed such stupidity. As if they didn’t know.
A rundown of the film’s first 15 minutes, and Q&A with Megan Fox, writer Diablo Cody, director Karyn Kusama and producer Jason Reitman. As Megan Fox says about J’s B, "You better be wearing your sexy shoes!"
A recap of the Hall H panel about the Michael J. Bassett-directed, James Purefoy-starring film adaptation of CONAN-creator Robert E. Howard‘s badass demon slayer. Well received at Comic-Con, and a potential sleeper hit when the film opens later this year. Give it up for sword & sorcery flicks!
Video clips and commentary about Mike Judge‘s latest, including a video of Jason Bateman passing out on Mila Kunis (not a bad place to land).
THE CLEVELAND SHOW
Interviews with cast members and video of "The Family Guy" spinoff’s panel in Hall H, with creator Seth MacFarlane.
And that’s all she wrote. We’ll see you next year, Comic-Con, and we’ll be loaded for bear when we do.
So send us out, Oscar-nominated writer/director Frank Darabont!
