Comic-Con 2011: Our Early Batch of Preview Night Showfloor Photos
by Alex Billington
July 20, 2011
It's my tradition to kick off Comic-Con by walking the showfloor on preview night and taking photos of anything movie-related that interests me. This year there seems to be a lot of the same booths, statues and setups as years' past, but as always there's some new stuff to be found on the massive convention center showfloor. I made my way through the crowds and snapped as many shots as I could before ducking out, but there will certainly be more to come at the end (as we always do a wrap-up piece as well). For now, take a look at our first gallery below, including some photos of Marvel's big Helicarrier display for The Avengers.
Yes, this does confirm our big scoop that Marvel was bringing the Helicarrier bridge from The Avengers to Comic-Con as their booth. We'll try and get better shots later, but every time I'd try and take a wider photo, someone would run in and ruin the shot. Additionally, as far as I know, that second motorcycle is not from Men in Black 3, but that giant silver tube on the top of the booth is. The tube is the time travel device in the movie, and the bike is from Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance. I've heard about other cool stuff hidden around the showfloor, so I'll have to head back in for more photos later this week. Comic-Con has begun!
