It’s July and the San Diego Gaslamp District has boosted its foot traffic to Times Square levels. That can only mean one thing : Comic-Con is here once again!
As usual, the Con kicks off with Preview night, followed by four days a seemingly endless stream of TV, Film and Comics panels, each toting a line from here to Anaheim.
If you’re here in San Diego early, you’re going to want to check out the convention floor (an excellent opportunity to get in your pictures of all the cars, gadgets and cosplay before the big crowds come). You’ll be able to check out which game developer and publishers on here showing off their latest games. TV aficionados will want to check out the Sneak Peek pilot screenings going down in Ballroom 20. On display will be the pilots for Revolution, Cult, Arrow, The Following and 666 Park Avenue.
The fun continues Thursday throughout Sunday as the TV and Film panels get underway. We’re especially looking forward to the TV panels for USA Network’s Psych (they never disappoint – you know that’s right), along with AMC’s Breaking Bad, The Walking Dead, FX’s Archer and Sons of Anarchy, Showtime’s Dexter and Shameless, CW’s The Vampire Diaries, ABC’s Once Upon a Time as well as these news series that will be here for the first time.
On the film side, the studios will be busy as usual showing fans the latest and greatest from upcoming movies. Walt Disney Studios will be front and center with panels for Frankenweenie (with Tim Burton present), Oz the Great and Powerful and Wreck-It Ralph. Disney isn’t done there; Marvel Studios will be on hand to give us a look at Iron Man 3. Also on docket is Expendables 2, where Sylvester Stallone will lead his merry band of muscle-toting misfits into Hall H for a giant-sized panel that will also feature Arnold Schwarznegger. Other films getting in on the fun are Screen Gems’ Resident Evil: Retribution, Sony’s Total Recall, Looper and Elysium and Summit Entertainment’s Twilight: Breaking Dawn Part 2.
