We're waiting for the full schedule for the San Diego Comic-Con to be officially released before we start listing off what's in store for this year. But we've got something we can already throw out there just in case we're not the only ones (out of the 120,000+ fans) that will be attending. Thomas Jane and Ron Perlman are presenting an exclusive screening of Mutant Chronicles, the futuristic sci-fi action film directed by Simon Hunter. We've shown you the impressive first teaser and a badass Russian trailer for the film already. I'm going to do my best to catch this screening myself, as I'm a big sci-fi nut and really want to see this. And if anyone else wants to catch it, here are the details for the Saturday night screening.
As the flyer states, the screening is at 10PM on Saturday, July 26th in Room 6CDEF. As far as I know, Thomas Jane, Ron Perlman, director Simon Hunter, and a few others will all be there and will also be participating in a Q&A afterwards. The film is only a rough cut at this moment, so don't expect a polished masterpiece. Either way, it might be worth checking out considering it's free if you've got a badge. Plus our friends over at Ain't It Cool News are hosting a giveaway for premium seats and a meet-and-greet.
Mutant Chronicles is directed by filmmaker Simon Hunter of the 2000 horror movie Lighthouse previously with a script written by Philip Eisner of Event Horizon and Firestarter 2 previously. The film has been in the works for quite a while but doesn't have a distributor yet. I personally plan on being at this screening so hopefully I'll run into some of our readers - see you in San Diego!
