Week of Geek: San Diego Comic Con International 2010

SDCC 2010: Harry Potter WB panelIt’s the last day of the big-movie panel Hall H programming here at the 2010 San Diego Comic-Con, and starting it off was the Warner Bros panel, which included Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows.

It was a quick presentation, with Tom Felton, who plays Draco Malfoy in the film franchise, being the sole representative for the upcoming two-part film finale.

The 22-year-old Felton, who was 12 when he started on the first Harry Potter film, made his first appearance at San Diego Comic-Con and was very pleased to be before the crowd, which were very welcoming of him.

Felton’s main objective for the panel was to introduce new footage from Deathly Hallows. Check out the description of the footage here below.

Disney has revamped their off site “Flynn’s Arcade” event to promote their upcoming feature TRON: Legacy. The only way to get in is to download the Free TRON iPhone app and check in at the booth set up inside San Diego Comic-Con‘s exhibitor floor.

But fortunately for anyone not at Comic-Con, we got in and captured a bunch of pictures (and video coming soon) of the ComiTRON event — check them out here below.

The app offers an all-new version of the classic Tanks game from the Tron Arcade, the TRON: Legacy trailer, pre-sale order information for the TRON Evolution video game and will update with additional video, music, and games.

SDCC 2010: AMCs The Walking Dead PanelWe here at Geeks of Doom are all pretty big fans of Robert Kirkman’s comic series The Walking Dead from Image Comics, and needless to say we’ve all been looking forward to the upcoming series that will air on AMC, premiering in October during their Horrorfest line of movies.

Friday’s Walking Dead panel at the 2010 San Diego Comic-Con brought with it our first look at the series, and let me say that it is looking spectacular. The series, masterminded by writer/director Frank Darabont (The Green Mile, The Mist, and a little movie called The Shawshank Redemption) and produced by Gale Anne Hurd (The Terminator, Aliens), follows Rick Grimes as he wakes up from a gun shot wound to find that he’s slept through the zombie apocalypse and must find his wife and son. Kirkman, Darabont, and Hurd were all on hand to give some details about the show.

SDCC 2010: ‘Skyline’ Panel

Week of Geek: San Diego Comic Con International 2010What drew me to the Skyline panel today at the 2010 San Diego Comic-Con was curiosity out of the sheer lack of information about this film beforehand. Press had been notoriously tight-lipped on it up until now, which may have been an (effective, in my case) hype-building tactic.

The rough gist of the film is it’s an attempt to create a large-scale alien invasion film on a completely independent budget. From the footage I saw, which included many generic shots of glowing lights descending upon the oft-abused Los Angeles, the execution is similar to Cloverfield or the upcoming Battle: Los Angeles (which the Strouse Brothers’ FX house Hydraulx is also producing effects for).

SDCC 2010: Scott Pilgrim vs. The World Panel: Michael Cera 02Well as we all know 2010 San Diego Comic-Con is going on and one of the biggest movies of the summer Scott Pilgrim vs. The World had its panel yesterday in Hall H; the Geeks of Doom crew was there and had some cool things to report, along with tons of pictures, which you can see here below.

This was one of the best and most talked about panels at Comic-Con. The panel started with a video clip about the movie with footage and interviews with director Edgar Wright and actor Michael Cera and the rest of the cast.

Wright was the first to come out on stage and one of the first things he said was “It’s hard to follow Stallone,” referring to the fact that Stallone and the cast of The Expendables were the previous panel.

First out was Scott Pilgrim creator Bryan Lee O’Malley and they talked about how O’Malley never believed that his book would be this big. Wright further added that the movie would be released in “fabulous 2-D.”

SDCC 2010: Could ‘Tron Legacy’ Be The First Good 3D Film Post Avatar?

Week of Geek: San Diego Comic Con International 2010

Tron: Legacy may be the first exception to the slew of recent big budget films released in 3D to yield a larger profit margin for studios.

The Disney feature was filmed using a newer generation of the Fusion Camera System developed by James Cameron for Avatar — meaning the 3D elements were done during the filming and not in post-production like Tim Burton’s Alice In Wonderland, Clash of the Titans, and several others.

“The look of Tron is unique. That’s one of the strongest things about it,” said producer and director of the original Tron Steven Lisberger during a press conference at 2010 San Diego Comic-Con.

Digital comics company Panelfly has partnered with former executives at Sony, AOL, and Hulu to form new digital media company SYN — and NOT a partnership with companies themselves. Founder and CEO of SYN Kirt Mcmaster e-mailed us to correct the information reported earlier from the Digital Comics Now panel at San Diego Comic-Con 2010.

Panelfly will dissolve into SYN, which aims to produce for movies, television shows, animation, and much more in addition to comic books, according to McMaster, who gave us the following statement: “[SYN is] focused on the ‘fantastic’ that will redefine this space across all platforms — with a focus on supermobile extending into the digital home experience.”

A Syn iPad app was said to be released soon, featuring the Panelfly skeletal software. This will replace the Panelfly name and become the main product for the company.

This is the first “cross-platform” partnership made with a digital comics company and details have yet to be released. However, the temporary holding page, synner.net, states a 2011 release and offer e-mail notifications when new details become available.

Comic Con

E! Online has received some interesting news. Apparently Joss Whedon — creator of popular titles like Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Angel, Firefly, Serenity, and Dollhouse — is getting ready to tag team with documentary film maker Morgan Spurlock (Super Size Me, Where in the World is Osama Bin Laden?) to make a documentary about the super geeks that attend Comic Con every year.

Reports are that Whedon and Spurlock will find a bunch of different people who take their geekdom very seriously. They want those of you who not only own, but often dress up in your favorite movie or TV show character’s costumes — and none of that Halloween costume crap, the real-deal outfits — to follow around for a few months.

Click on over to see a video of the folks I imagine these gentlemen are seeking!
