Popular movies = popular Halloween costumes, especially the type of movies that are featured at Comic Con.
Each year, I pay close attention to ComiCon San Diego, wishing that I were there and watching all the great stories and surprises that come out of it. Here is a great recap from Moviefone:
1. The 'Marvel' panel lives up to the hype.
The panel featured upcoming Captain America and Thor movies. I was excited to see that Hugo Weaving was cast as Red Skull in the Captain America movie. There was also a special surprise teaser for the upcoming 2012 Avengers movie:
"The screen went black, Samuel Jackson's voice narrated a trailer tease for 'The Avengers' as the title treatment appeared, and the cast came out on stage: Jackson (Nick Fury), Clark Gregg (Agent Coulson), Scarlett Johansson (Black Widow), Robert Downey Jr. (Iron Man), Chris Hemsworth (Thor), Chris Evans (Captain America), and the three previously missing pieces of the puzzle in Jeremy Renner as Hawkeye, Mark Ruffalo "reprising" (or more accurately, replacing Edward Norton in) the role of Bruce Banner/The Hulk, and Joss Whedon as the movie's director. Those people lucky enough to be in the room had never felt prouder to call themselves geeks."
2. 'Scott Pilgrim' screening wows the fans.
ComicCon fans went crazy over the trailer for this new movie, which heralds the geek as a hero who fights off ex boyfriends in attempt to get the girl.
3. Han Solo and James Bond, together at last.
Both Daniel Craig and Harrison Ford appear in Jon Favreau's new sci fi western movie 'Cowboys and Aliens'. This marked Harrison Ford's ComicCon debut, and the fans welcomed him with open arms and cheers.
4. 'Tron' footage and party takes fans back to the future.
The Tron movie is finally opening this December, something that ComicCon fans have been waiting for 3 years since the Tron trailer premiered 3 years ago at ComicCon.
5. Warner Bros. panel shows new 'Harry Potter' footage, but 'Sucker Punch' gets the buzz.
The trailer for the newest Harry Potter movie: Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows (part 1) was screened and even though this is one of the biggest movies being released this fall, the cast did not have a big presence at ComicCon.
A movie that did get a big reaction from the crowd is Green Lantern, and the big reaction was evidently more for Ryan Reynolds, than for the movie trailer. The article reported that he recited the Green Lantern Oath, word for word, which has got to be greatly appreciated by any GL fan! He also signed a comic book for a lucky fan.
But the biggest buzz coming out of the Warner Bros. panel was for Zack Snyder's 'Sucker Punch,' a fantasy-action film with an all-female cast that includes Emily Browning, Vanessa Hudgens, Jamie Chung and Jena Malone. We will have to stay tuned for that, because I am sure if will be packed with sexy costumes!
