Comic-Con 2010: Our Early Preview Night Showfloor Photos
by Alex Billington
July 22, 2010
We're back with our photo preview to kick off Comic-Con 2010. Last night the Con "unofficially" kicked off with the opening of Preview Night, a three-hour opening of the crowded and always exciting showfloor, featuring many booths for a lot of great companies, studios, movies, and more. I made my way through the crowds last night and snapped a few photos of whatever I could, but there will certainly be more to come at the end (as we always do a wrap-up piece as well). For now, check these out, including that awesome booth for Tron Legacy, that included a ton of badass promo products they've made for it. View the photos below!
You may have noticed that purple man lying on what looks like a futuristic hospital bed in one of the photos - that's Abin-Sur from the Green Lantern movie, as played by Temuera Morrison. It was on display at the Warner Bros booth, right near the Harry Potter props, but no one knew what it was. Everyone walked right by it and there was no sign or anything else. It's pretty cool to see, but a bit odd that no one knows anything about it. I also love those District 9 gun replicas (I had to buy one!). And there's apparently lots of other cool stuff found around the showfloor that I'll have to get more photos of a bit later. Comic-Con has begun!

Hey Alex which D-9 gun did you get?? I want one so badly, but I'm guessing they were pricey.

I saw pictures of a little set for The Walking Dead tv show, are they going to show any footage of that you think?
