Keep these in mind before entering the San Diego Convention Center on July 21.
Any Comic-Con nerd will tell you for every Wolverine and Captain America there’s an underrated sidekick or zombie Spider-Man (seriously) waiting in the proverbial wings for their big screen debut.
It's finally here: Comic-Con 2009! Whether you're reading this from the comfort of your living room in the Midwest, or the comfort of a hard sidewalk as you wait in line for the NEW MOON panel, your heart has to be racing for all the fun in store these next few days. Screen Junkies will be there the entire time, quick on the draw with our Twitter, and posting updates right here on the site. To kick off the convention, we thought we'd offer a word to the wise attendee. In the below video clip, Kevin Smith shows us why you never heckle a man with a microphone. His voice projects a lot louder than yours, and that includes when he makes fun of your mother. So remember fans, well thought out inquires only. Note: If you have trouble viewing the video click here.
Television's ultimate pitchman has passed away. Billy Mays, the charismatic and clamorous infomercial host died in his sleep after sustaining a head injury during a rough plane landing this past weekend. The very likeable Mays is currently co-starring with Anthony Sullivan on the Discovery Channel show Pitchmen. This really is such a shame. It's always sad to see someone cut down while their star is on the rise. His contributions to the tapestry of television will be sorely missed.
