Comic-con 2011

"Would any of you guys like to talk about Prometheus?" So asked Damon Lindelof to about 6,500 curious souls today.  Mysterious, high profile projects don't get much more mysterious or high profile than Prometheus, Ridley Scott's first science fiction film since Blade Runner in 1982.  The screenplay by Jon Spaihts started out as a direct prequel to Scott's 1978 masterpiece Alien, then, in subsequent drafts by Lost showrunner Lindelof, it mutated into a less conventional prequel set in the Alien universe.

20th Century Fox, the studio behind Prometheus, decided to bust out the big guns for the film's panel at this year's San Diego Comic-Con.  Damon Lindelof himself moderated the whole Fox event, and he introduced supporting castmember Charlize Theron in person and also had a video chat with Ridley Scott and star Noomi Rapace, who are currently wrapping up principal photography in Iceland.  That's not all, though; Lindelof kicked off the panel event by introducing the very first footage from Prometheus.

Plastered all over lovely San Diego right now are posters heralding Comic-Con International as an event, "Celebrating the Popular Arts."  Very few properties encapsulate the "popular" aspect of this description better than The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn - Part 1, the first half of a two-film adaptation of Stephenie Meyer's final novel in the massively successful and beloved novel series.  

The panel event for Breaking Dawn is the first huge event at Hall H, the San Diego Convention Center's largest single venue.  Though the panel kicked off at 11:15 am today (Thursday), the line for entry and prime seats in Hall H began growing in earnest on Monday afternoon, eventually ballooning to well over a hundred people camping out on Wednesday night.  Their anticipation proved warranted for any Twilight fan, though, as the panel included director Bill Condon, along with stars Kristen Stewart, Robert Pattinson, and Taylor Lautner, who were eventually joined onstage by Nikki Reed, Julia Jones, Elizabeth Reaser, and Ashley Greene.

Check out the new images from Shark Night 3D from Comic-Con! The film opens September 2, 2011.

San Diego Comic-Con is set to begin in just a few days, with the proceedings officially getting underway on Thursday, July 21st.  That means a whole lot of genre fans are going to be very busy this weekend salivating over films on the distant horizon, like The Amazing Spider-Man and Prometheus.  But what's a Con attendee to do about Captain America: The First Avenger, Marvel's last event film before next summer's team-up The Avengers?  It's been rumored for awhile that Captain America would debut early in San Diego, giving fans a chance to see the film without impacting their busy plans.  Now, Paramount Pictures has officially announced that Chris Evans will indeed avenge early at Comic-Con, and the actor will be on hand to kick off the first show on Thursday, July 21st.

SDCC 2011: Sunday Schedule

Sunday, 17 July 2011 11:02

From here, with days until Comic-Con International begins in sunny San Diego, it can be difficult to visual the close of the Con in a week.  Like children greedily eying and inventorying their carefully-wrapped Christmas presents, right now, the attention of genre fans the world over is resolutely fixed on all the hype-facilitating goodness to be unveiled regarding all our favorite comic books, film franchises, and video games.  Wednesday through Saturday nights will be a massive, orgiastic tearing into geeky presents, and by Sunday, Con attendees will be spent and disillusioned, lying sweaty in piles of decimated wrapping paper.  After days of frenzied activity, the biggest event in nerd culture wraps up Sunday on a more low-key note, but there are still plenty worthwhile panels and events for your perusal.  For your convenience, IAR humbly presents our selected roundup of panels closing out Comic-Con.

SDCC 2011: Saturday Schedule

Sunday, 17 July 2011 10:46

San Diego Comic-Con is an event of wholly unique pomp and circumstance, but our cherished holidays provide a convenient means to contextualize each individual day of the Con, which goes down next week.  In our last rundown of selected panels set for Friday, July 22nd, we likened the experience of a Comic-Con Friday to a child's enthusiastic examination of their booty on a lucrative Halloween.  For Saturday, we're moving on chronologically to Thanksgiving.  By midday Saturday, the average Con attendee is in danger of overeating, having thoroughly stuffed themselves on three courses of nerd fixings.  With pants in danger of splitting and a sudden urge to nap, it's more imperative than ever to prioritize which panels to attend, so once again, we've provided an overview of events that should prove appealing and informative on Saturday, the penultimate day of Comic-Con.

SDCC 2011: Friday Schedule

Sunday, 17 July 2011 10:19

On any given week during the year, Friday is a unique day, with the work-week done and the fertile possibilities of two free, sociable days spread out before the beleaguered workers of the world.  Such it is with San Diego Comic-Con, as well.  The single biggest and most potent gathering of nerdlingers on this island Earth is all anticipatory excitement on Friday, with attendees feeling very much like children on Halloween, dumping pillowcases full of sugary, fun-size sweets on the floor.  Of course, all that candy will eventually lead to stomach aches and diabetes, but in that moment, all that matters is the promise of sweetness to come.  IAR will, of course, be covering Comic-Con International, but the sheer abundance of bite-sized events and panels at the Con assures that no one organization can cover it all, so we're providing a rundown of the Friday panels that might just be of interest to you, our dear reader.
