The world’s biggest pop culture event Comic-Con 2012 took place in San Diego over the weekend. In addition to all the toys, video games, comic books, and sexy customs, we got a glimpse of some of the hottest up-and-coming movies!
“Breaking Dawn Part 2” generated an enormous buzz amongst fans and bloggers. Kristen Stewart, Robert Pattinson, Taylor Lautner, Kellan Lutz, Nikki Reed, Ashley Greene, Elizabeth Reaser, and more all came out to bid farewell to the franchise. The stars showed the first 7 minutes of the last installment at the panel and Twihards even got a glimpse of the cast’s funny bantering during the discussion.
“Elysium”, Neil Blomkamp’s follow-up to his breakout hit “District 9”, took Comic-Con by storm! If you’re a fan of “District 9”, this film will surely peak your interest. The Sci-fi film begins with the masses being relegated to Earth and the rich live in Elysium. Matt Damon shaved his head and revealed that he bulked up muscle masses by going to the gym 4 hours a day.
It’s safe to say that the star of Marvel this year was Robert Downey Jr. The “Iron Man 3” film is in production now in North Carolina, and we got a glimpse of the latest Iron Man armor. The custom is more gold than red, and has some serious 80s style shoulder pads! Robert danced on stage for fans, and Marvel Studios chief Kevin Feige revealed the studio’s master plan for the next wave of super-movies. Get ready for “Thor: The Dark World”, hitting theaters on Nov. 8, 2013, “Captain America: The Winter Soldier” on April 4, 2014, “Guardians of the Galaxy” Aug 1, 2014, and Edgar Wright’s take on “Ant-Man” sometime in 2015!
It’s not every year you get action titans like Sylvester Stallone and Arnold Schwarzenegger sharing the stage in Hall H, but that’s exactly what happened with Thursday’s epic “Expendables 2” panel! Like the first movie two years ago, the sequel is an homage to the action movies Sylvester helped pioneer back in the day, he said.
As if hovercars aren’t cool enough, “Total Recall” actress Kate Beckinsale just confirmed that there’s three-breasted hookers in the film! The movie will be different from the 1990 film. The action is not set on Mars but it remains true to its Sci-fi roots. You can catch Colin Farrell, Kate Beckinsale, and Jessica Biel on screen on August 3.
