Day 2, July 23
Nicolas Cage hit San Diego to present Drive Angry 3D, a movie where Cage's character chases the men who killed his daughter (haven't we seen that before?). Also in our future is the low-budget Skyline which alert us that aliens are coming again to invade us, and Super with Rainn Wilson, Liv Tyler, and Nathan Fillion.
Producer Guillermo del Toro, along with director Troy Nixey, presented Don't Be Afraid of the Dark, a remake of the 1970s TV film of the same title, starring Guy Pearce and Katie Holmes. The second day at Comic-Con climaxed with the presentation of another highly anticipated movie, The Green Hornet, directed by Eternal Sunshine of The Spotless Mind's Michel Gondry and starring Seth Rogen (who also wrote the screenplay), Cameron Diaz, and Academy Award winner Christoph Waltz. Check out the trailer:
Day 3, July 24
If day one was big, we could all expect a big finale for day three. Heroes, heroines, vampires, wizards, you betcha! Meet our heroes: Green Lantern, Thor, and Captain America — or Ryan Reynolds, Chris Hemsworth, and Chris Evans. The three movies will be released next year; the two first are in post-production, and Captain America is still filming. By the way, did you know that Kenneth Branagh is the director of Thor? I cannot wait to see this movie — I really miss Branagh behind the camera, his Shakespeare adaptations to the big screen are simply exquisite.
Meet our heroine, Alice. What's not to love about Alice? Fierce, powerful, always ready to bring down the plans of the Umbrella Corporation and wonderfully played by lovely Milla Jovovich (who made it in time to San Diego after her flight got canceled). The fourth installment of the Resident Evil franchise, this one is called Afterlife and promises us the undead, plenty of action, and the opportunity to watch it in IMAX 3D. Check out the cool trailer:
