The Probable Comic-Con 2007 Movie Slate
by Alex Billington
March 30, 2007
Summer is still about a month or more away, but I'm already getting excited for Comic-Con in July. It is without a doubt that the biggest movies will make their major debut at the San Diego International Comic-Con. Just look at my Best of Comic-Con list last year and almost everything on there, with an exception of Southland Tales, Reno 911! Miami, and Beerfest, have been (or will be) huge hits, especially 300 and Grindhouse, due in thanks to the incredible buzz that they started during Comic-Con.
What movie panels and footage debuts can we expect to see at this year's Comic-Con? Of course there are all the big comic book movies in 2008, but what else could we possibly see? I'm tackling this bit of early excitement for the hell of it, just to get all of you excited, too.
The first thing to note: almost all of these big comic book movies are seemingly purposely starting to film by early summer so they just so happen to have something filmed by the time Comic-Con swings around in July - a good sign we'll have some sort of footage from most of them.
Iron Man (Likely We'll See Footage)
Watchmen (Likely We'll See Footage)
Sin City 2 (Likely We'll See Footage)
Hellboy 2 (Likely We'll See Footage)
The Dark Knight (Likely We'll See Footage)
The Incredible Hulk (Likely We'll See Footage)
Trick 'r Treat
Unsure of if they'll have a presence:
30 Days of Night
3:10 to Yuma
I Am Legend
Resident Evil: Extinction
Shoot 'Em Up
The Golden Compass
Alien vs. Predator 2: Survival of the Fittest
Star Trek XI
Indiana Jones IV
The point: you don't want to miss this year's Comic-Con. It's going to be one hell of an event. Now I can't say that we'll be seeing anything from Speed Racer, Indiana Jones IV, I Am Legend, Beowulf, or Star Trek XI or not, but it doesn't hurt to consider they may be there. The show is sadly no longer only about comic books and comic book movie adaptations, but it's a launching grounds for plenty of movie's marketing campaigns.
See you in July in San Diego!
