The San Diego Comic-Con is a month away and I am STOKED! Last year was stressful as hell for me at the Con because I was covering it single-handed for Screen Rant as well as doing Iron Man coverage for Advanced Iron, the premiere Iron Man fan site.
This year I’m only covering it for you guys right here, plus our master of flowery prose, Bruce Simmons will be there to help. He’s going to get a crash course in covering movie panels live. :-)
If you’re interested in attending, the 4-day passes and Saturday single-day tickets are all sold out. You can still get single day tix for Thursday, Friday and Sunday (click here for more info about the Con). If you’re a regular reader here at Screen Rant and you plan on attending let us know and we’ll try to arrange a get-together. It opens with a preview night on Wednesday July 23rd and runs through Sunday the 27th and takes place smack-dab in the middle of beautiful downtown San Diego at the Convention Center on the bay.
IESB.net is always a big player at this event and they’ve gotten the scoop on some of what’s already been scheduled for coverage. With the writers’ strike this year I was concerned that there wouldn’t be a whole lot going on at the Con this year as far as movies are concerned, but things are shaping up nicely.
Among the movies that will have a presence there are Ninja Assassin, Star Wars: Clone Wars, Terminator 4, Watchmen, Topic Thunder, Punisher: War Zone, Death Race and more! BTW, I can’t imagine Paramount won’t have something to offer up for the Star Trek fans that will be in attendance.
One of the panels I’ll be sure to attend will also be the Masters of the Web which will have a bunch of my movie site homeboys up on stage including IESB, CHUD, Latino Review, Ain’t It Cool News, Movie Web, The Movie Blog, Dark Horizons, JoBlo, Cinematical and Bloody-Disgusting. Whew! (Maybe if we keep jamming here at Screen Rant we’ll be worthy of being up there next year.) :-)
