Fright Night Feeding Frenzy

Things are starting to heat up at Comic-Con. Or maybe cool down… DreamWorks Pictures has announced that they're kicking off a Fright Night Fan Frenzy contest for Comic-Con 2011, that will include cast appearances at a Hall H panel on Friday, a party, and advance screening of the remake directed by Craig Gillespie, starring Anton Yelchin and Colin Farrell. It all kicks off with a social media "campaign" that encourages fans to use their social feeds on Facebook, Twitter and blogs to share movie content and check in to real world events to collect points. At the end of each week, the fan with the most will win a killer prize.

DreamWorks Studios is pleased to present a special insider look at its upcoming, 3D reimagining of the horror classic Fright Night at this year’s San Diego Comic-Con International Convention. On Friday, July 22, a panel presentation will be held in Hall H of the San Diego Convention Center. On the dais will be talent from the film, including Colin Farrell, Anton Yelchin, Christopher Mintz-Plasse, and Imogen Poots, director Craig Gillespie and screenwriter Marti Noxon. Activities also include a fan appreciation party as well as a screening in advance of the film's opening in theaters on August 19th. That's quite early!

As for the Feeding Frenzy, the big grand price is a chance to win a VIP trip for two to San Diego Comic-Con in partnership with Yahoo! Movies. The trip includes travel, accommodations and admittance to all “Fright Night” scheduled events.

I liked Comic-Con more when it was just about comics.

Well, it hasn't been just about comics for a long time now. No need to dwell on the past. I wish MTV was still about music, but... there you are.

Piss off, Borgen.  There you are.

Yeaaa its kind of evolved into something more. Comics are certainly still there, but it's all about pop culture and movies and everything comics have influenced and are related to. Which is cool by me! Lots more to see and do down in San Diego.
