Well, shut our collective mouths and fry up the giblets! Justin over at 365daysoffilm.com just saved our bacon again. He was able to get in and score four-day passes for the remaining crew. We all got into Comic-Con 2013! Shee-yite!
We haven’t looked at this year’s agenda very closely but we’re looking forward to focusing more on old school comic books for a change. Most of our recent activities have surrounded movies and TV. Jeff Smith has been announced as a special guest so we’re hoping to hear more about RASL and other upcoming projects. We’re also hoping he’ll get a haircut. And we’ll try to give the Masquerade a shot since some of us have never been. Other than that … we’ll wait for the program schedule.
Having said what we did about comics, we are looking forward to details about 300, Red 2 (we’re really hoping this one is good as the first one), Elysium, Sin City: A Dame to Kill For, Oldboy, Ender’s Game, Thor: The Dark World, Hunger Games: Catching Fire, The Hobbit: Desolation of Smaug, Jack Ryan … wow! 2013 has got some legs. And we haven’t even included movies like Robocop, Hobbit, Guardians of the Galaxy, Avatar 2 (maybe premature but maybe at least teaser info … by the way, we wouldn’t mind seeing Avatar strictly as a naturalist’s “documentary” of the moon of Pandora), and James Bond 24 (still to be named, but Craig and Fiennes will be back of course, and we just found out Sam Mendes has re-upped).
For the fun of it, here’s the trailer to Red 2, starring Bruce Willis, Mary-Louise Parker, John Malkovich, Helen Mirren, Anthony Hopkins, Catherine Zeta-Jones, and of course others.
This roller coaster, nail biter wears a person out. Time for a collective nap. Besides, it’s Saturday so there’s no particular place to go.
