[SDCC 2013] The World’s End at Hall H

With the final installment of The Cornetto Trilogy to be released in US theaters on August 23rd, Edgar Wright, Simon Pegg, Nick Frost, and moderator Chris Hardwick met with fans at San Diego Comic-Con’s Hall H to answer questions about the film The World’s End.

It’s easy to see there’s a long-standing friendship between Pegg, Wright, and Frost, going by how well they played off of each other while answering the audience’s questions. And by how much they made fun of each other.

[SDCC 2013] The Visionaries Panel

Entertainment Weekly’s “The Visionaries” panel in Hall H was a true meeting of the minds: directors Marc Webb (The Amazing Spider-Man 2, 500 Days of Summer), Alfonso Cuarón (Gravity, Harry Potter and The Prisoner of Azkaban, Children of Men), and Edgar Wright (Spaced, The World’s End, Hot Fuzz, Shaun of the Dead) sat down and just talked about filmmaking.

While other panels have exclusive video footage or superstars up on the screen, these three can tell stories for an hour and have the audience completely entranced.

[SDCC 2013] Europa Report takes over Hall H

One of the surprises of this year’s Comic-Con was the panel for Magnolia Pictures’ movie Europa Report. The surprise wasn’t the panel itself, but that it was held in Hall H. Compared with the splashy, big-budget productions that usually take over the hall, the science fiction “documentary” Europa Report seems an odd fit for Comic-Con’s biggest room. Many of the attendees were just holding their places in anticipation of the Dexter panel later.

But that didn’t dampen the enthusiasm of the cast and crew, who treated the audience to a lively discussion and exclusive footage of the film.

Comic Issues #129 – Ready? Fight!

Maybe they haven’t quite recovered from Comic-Con yet, but the podcast crew is really grumpy today. Anthony’s glaring at everybody, Andrew’s bringing up forbidden topics, and Elizabeth’s just plain starting trouble. It’s a battle of wills, a clash of Titans! Or maybe that’s just the Batman vs. Superman movie.

Join our rage-filled heroes and heroine as they argue, rant, and still manage to laugh while speculating about the upcoming DC movies and what we could expect from a Flash or Wonder Woman film. Along the way they also discuss Comic-Con food, proper footwear, and how to escape a recording studio before someone flips a table.

Spotted at Con: Aaron Alexovich and Serenity Rose

One of the greatest moments of any comic convention is turning a corner and bumping into the person who created something you love. That jaw-dropping moment where you blink and say: “It’s you! You made that awesome thing! And you’re right here!” And that’s exactly what happened at San Diego Comic-Con when I dodged a crowd of cosplayers and came face to face with Aaron Alexovich, creator of the webcomic Serenity Rose.

If you’re not reading this comic already, you absolutely should. Don’t worry, I’ve got links.
