Sin City: A Dame to Kill For

Comic Con trailer for ‘Sin City: A Dame To Kill For’

Every year, movies and TV shows bring exclusive content to San Diego Comic Con to generate a buzz for upcoming projects. This year, we got several new trailers, including this one for Sin City: A Dame to Kill For. Now everyone can enjoy without having to wait in that damn hall H line!

SYNOPSIS:
Co-directors Robert Rodriguez and Frank Miller reunite to bring Miller’s visually stunning “Sin City” graphic novels back to the screen in SIN CITY: A DAME TO KILL FOR.

Weaving together two of Miller’s classic stories with new tales, the town’s most hard boiled citizens cross paths with some of its more notorious inhabitants. SIN CITY: A DAME TO KILL FOR is the follow up to Rodriguez and Miller’s 2005 groundbreaking film, FRANK MILLER’S SIN CITY.

With hundreds of panels and 130,000 attendees, San Diego Comic Con is arguably the biggest fan event of the year. It’s a place where fans can get exclusive sneak peeks of movies, TV shows, comic books and games, a place where a regular Joe can ask a star a question during a panel, and a place where fangirls and fanboys can meet their idols in person for autographs or photos. With the increasing number of entertainment panels packing the fans into Hall H (the most coveted room in all of Comic Con) movie and TV stars are completely accessible to fans. Continue reading

Comic Con Thursday (7:18:13) - 37

Back into the fray! Trashwire heads to San Diego Comic Con 2013

Trashwire is in the hizzouse (yes, I realize how ridiculous and dated that sounds) for San Diego Comic Con 2013. Pop culture mecca is bustling again with celebs, superheroes, a fair share of obscure cosplay, and more than a few Targaryens—in fact, about two dozen Khaleesi clones were spotted in our first few minutes at the convention center. While Thursday is still pretty early into the con, we spotted Lost stars Josh Holloway and Evangeline Lilly, who was signing for her role as Tauriel in The Hobbit at the Weta booth.

‘Comic-Con Episode IV: A Fan’s Hope’ captures passion of San Diego Comic-Con

Perhaps the most overused word when describing fans is “passionate”, but that is the best way to describe all those who attend the behemoth convention that is Comic-Con.

Morgan Spurlock has taken on the task of telling the story of Comic-Con 2010 in the documentary Comic-Con Episode IV: A Fan’s Hope–not an easy feat due to the plethora of characters that attend this convention.  Comic-Con is a unique experience for everyone who attends, but Spurlock chooses to zero in on a few specific characters: The Geek, The Designer, The Soldier, The Survivor, The Collector and The Lovers. The film takes these characters from Comic-Con prep time in their hometowns to Comic-Con go time on the convention floor and anyone who has attended can find a piece of their experience in these characters.
