Major Studios Not Attending This Year’s Comic-Con

Many major studios are opting not to attend the San Diego Comic-Con this July. The failure of heavily-hyped films like Scott Pilgrim Vs. The World and Suckerpunch had studios scratching their brain-shells and lead them to the belief that the advance screenings and panels don’t help their box office whatsoever. Plus, actors get creeped out by the fans.

Disney, Warner Bros., Dreamworks, The Weinstein Co., and maybe Marvel won’t be making the trip this year, which means you won’t see any precious footage from The Dark Knight Rises or The Man Of Steel or The Avengers which seems like BULLshit. But don’t worry. You’ll be able to see scenes from The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part I and Shark Night 3D, so that should keep people from stabbing one another with pens, right?

Oh okay. Well, I guess you’ll also have a chance to see promotions for The Adventures Of Tintin: The Secret Of The Unicorn, Cowboys & Aliens, The Amazing Spider-man, Rise of the Planet of the Apes, The Hobbit, and The Immortals. And if all those panels are full, you can check out The Raven or “Terra Nova.” So don’t worry, there will be plenty of stuff to act nerdy toward. (NY Times)

    Khan Manka, Jr. gave one of the great keynote addresses at last
    year’s Comic-Con – and basically said the studios should and would be
    backing out. Studios just don’t have the power they think they do over
    the mindset of fans.
