screen rant comic con Countdown To San Diegos 2009 Comic Con!

Wow, Comic-Con 2009 is already less than three weeks away. Seems like only a couple of months ago since we were there. Last year was a ton of work but also a blast (click here for our wrap up of the 2008 San Diego Comic-Con), and this year we’ll be providing even more extensive coverage for you with additional staff to cover the event.

Unfortunately if you want to attend this year and don’t already have tickets you’re probably out of luck as it’s been sold out for a while. But fear not, we’ll try to give you all the goods here on the site over the course of the event. It starts with preview night on Wednesday, July 22nd and runs through Sunday July 26th.

Included among the movies and TV shows that will be covered this year are:

  • James Cameron’s Avatar (with 3D (rumored) footage from the film)
  • The upcoming Sci-Fi alien invasion flick with a twist: District 9 (including an appearance by Peter Jackson).
  • Mike Judge will be on hand to promote his new comedy Extract.
  • The premiere of Mystery Team.
  • Where the Wild Things Are.
  • Tron
  • Sherlock Holmes
  • Jonah Hex
  • 2012
  • Thirst
  • Ninja Assassin
  • Lost
  • The pilot for the TV series remake V.
  • Doctor Who (with an appearance by David Tennant)
  • FlashForward
  • Caprica & Battlestar Galactica: The Plan

Oh, and of course Iron Man 2, for which I’m sure director Jon Favreau has something very special planned.

Also, this year Screen Rant has been invited to participate in the “Masters of the Web” panel (shocking, I know – I certainly didn’t expect it!). The panel will be moderated by director Kevin Munroe and will include an appearance by Brandon Routh and Sam Huntington, along with a preview of their upcoming film Dead of Night.

Here is the list of panelists:

It will be held Thursday, July 23rd at 3pm – 4pm in Room 32AB.

Robert Sanchez of organizes the panel and puts together what is arguably the most awesome party every year at Comic-Con: The Wrath of Con party (one of my highlights of Comic-Con).

Last year at the Masters of the Web panel tickets to the party were given away to some lucky winners. Here’s my favorite pic from last year’s party. icon smile Countdown To San Diegos 2009 Comic Con!

As Comic-Con approaches, keep up to date with our San Diego Comic-Con updates (check the logo on the right) here on Screen Rant and on by searching for #sdcc or #cc09. I’ll be there along with SR writers Kofi Outlaw, Bruce Simmons, Rob Keyes (and maybe) Paul Young. We’ll be doing live-blogging, panel summaries and hopefully we’ll get you an exclusive or two.

We may try to schedule an impromptu dinner, probably on Sunday night, where we’ll get together to decompress after the whole thing. If you’re around downtown San Diego maybe you can join us. We’ll firm this up as we get closer to the actual date.

Anyway, we’re all looking forward to it and we hope you are, too.

  2. That is one priceless grin there, Vic.
    Although I can tell why you’re smiling.

    Your planned coverage with the troops
    should be the best around and I’ll
    look forward to your reports.

  3. Possibly Avatar and Iron Man 2 stuff??? Can’t wait!

  4. Vic you deserve some type of award for being able to look at a camera for a few seconds in that type of a situation…if you know what I mean. lol

  5. Will the girls from b**** Slap be at Comic Con this year. When is BS coming out? The redhead is beautiful. lh

  6. The website still says Fall of this year, no exact release date though. Don’t know if they’ll be there or not.


  7. I’m PRAYING there will be an announcement on the casting of The First Avenger: Captain America!!!!!

  8. Hi,

    If you’ll be attending the San Diego Comic-Con 09, I am giving away free T:SCC stickers:


  9. I’ve got my ticket for Sunday just have to plan out how to get down there.
    Hope to see you guys . ;-)

  10. Cant wait for AVATAR. Interesting if they show a trailer in 3D.

  11. I’m wondering too retter, too bad I won’t be there to see it anyhow…

    Wonder when they will actually release a trailer for the public…

  12. Long time reader, First time poster.. I have been using your site almost daily to keep up with all thats happening and agree with most and if not all of your reviews so I am glad to hear they included you on the panel. This will be my sixth venture to the Con and I look forward to seeing you all there.

  13. Hi Ken J,
    I see you have a Terminator avatar, do you want some Save Sarah Connor Stickers for Comic-Con ? (see

  14. @m_33, are you going to be at the show?

  15. Hi 790,

    sadly, I’m stuck for a while. I won’t go anywere then.
    But during Comic-Con, I’ll watch every YT video, blogs or forums that you guys will post ;)


  16. Right on M_33, I’m as bummed as you that they ended TSCC the way the did. The show definitly deserves a 3rd season!!!

  17. Also unofficially speaking, Screen Rant is going to have 5 writers there so you won’t have to look very far for amazing coverage. I’ll be there on Sunday to post comments from my smartphone. Stay tuned it should be fun,,, ;-)

  18. wow.i never knew how cool u guys lucky sumbitch!!

  19. Thanks 790 :)

  20. i wish i will get the ticket to the Comic-Con on the 23 of july i very want to see rain in starring roll Ninja Assassin i hope i get lucky :(

  21. m_33, I won’t be going to comic con anyway, so can’t help you with your campaign. I thought the show was interesting enough… Wouldn’t consider it canon with the Terminator universe though…

  22. Comic Con is sold out but New Country 957 has your tickets! Go to for details

  23. These After Con Parties, like the “Comic Book Legal Defence Fund’s” Benefit in San Francisco’s Mena Alley during Wonder Con. Really aren’t that much fun anymore, since I had to give up drinking. I know I must sound like a pitiful lush for saying that but, sorry it’s the truth………Plus I’ll admit that having Asperger’s Syndrome can make things more difficult for me in these social situation’s. The eccentric behavior that goes along with it can really irritate people.
