by on Jul.23, 2010, under Movies

Thanks to Greg for the following coverage from Comic-Con: As you already know, Comic-Con is going on and the coverage is amazing this year with live streams from every panel as well as up to the minute breaking news and insider interviews. I thought I would let you know about “The Green Hornet” coverage that is up on Two interviews were uploaded today, as well as a photo gallery. In one interview, Christoph Waltz admitted to being “acomic” before doing “The Green Hornet”. He had never been exposed to anything having to do with the whole Comic-Con culture. It will be interesting to see how well he plays the character of Chudnofsky.

What’s going on at Comic-Con?

by on Jul.23, 2010, under Conventions

I had intended to be there first hand this year, but too many things got in the way and then it was too late…but I’m a bit surprised at the lack of earth-shattering news coming out from it this year. Is anyone there getting anything good? Or is it relatively dull this year? At least they finally showed some new footage from Tron Legacy

Del Toro will do scary Haunted Mansion movie for Disney

by on Jul.23, 2010, under Movies

One of the early announcements from Comic-Con is that Guillermo del Toro, who recently left The Hobbit due to the constant delays, is making a new, scary version of Haunted Mansion for Disney, based on the park attraction – of which del Toro is a fan. There will be no connection to the previous version (an Eddie Murphy comedy vehicle), but it promises to be REAL scary. “It’s going to be a thrill ride for the whole family but it’s definitely going to be scary,” he said. “(Walt) Disney is one of the creators of some of the scariest images in my childhood. People forget that he not only made sweet images but also images of nightmare. We need to honor that side of the legacy.” Why would he leave The Hobbit (a potential gold mine, but in stuck in bankruptcy with MGM) for this? Well, it wasn’t just this movie but several projects that were in “deep freeze”, but this one he believes will need special attention and a long development cycle to do right. Hear hear…someone who won’t just stamp out something and depend on the name…
