SUNDAY, JULY 25

THE SLOW-ASS LAST DAY, a.k.a. “FAMILY DAY”

Luke Y Thompson covers Hollywood events at the Con for Deadline:

10:00-11:00 AM: Emily The Strange. So every year, they promise an announcement of a potential movie deal for this goth-chick fave. This year? Maybe. Or not. Room 3

10:00-11:00 AM: Smallville Screening and Q&A. Apparently, this next season is going to be the final one for the Superman prequel series. I did not know that. Which makes this the last official Comic-Con panel. Some of you might find that important. Plus Tom Welling’s coming. Ballroom 20

10:00-11:00 AM: Sideshow Collectibles. Hey Sideshow: I bought your expensive dolls back when they were around $60. Now that most of them are almost twice that, I can’t. And if you keep this up, I will not care. Just so you know, there’s a recession on. Room 32AB

11:45 AM-12:45 PM: Comic-Con Debut: International Hit Merlin. If my girlfriend were coming to Comic-Con, she’d be first in line for this. If I attend the panel, it will primarily be on her behalf, as I can’t quite understand why this show so drastically rewrites Arthurian legend as to make Merlin a kid serving Prince Arthur. But star Colin Morgan will show up, and I know firsthand that that means a lot to some. Room 6BCF

12:00-2:00 PM: Browncoats Fan Group. Obsessive fans of Joss Whedon’s SERENITY/FIREFLY meet at this thing. I’d advice everyone else to stay far, far away. Room 32AB

12:30-1:15 PM: American Dad. Good morning USA! … Read More »

THE DAY YOUR FEET GET REALLY SORE

Luke Y Thompson covers Hollywood events at the Con for Deadline:

10:00-11:00 AM: Mad about MAD! I used to love Mad Magazine, but in the years since it started accepting advertising, it has gone way downhill. Apparently there’ll be some sort of new TV venture announced, though not necessarily a spiritual successor to the late MADtv. Magazine vets Sergio Aragones, John Ficarra, and Sam Viviano will be onhand. Room 7AB

10:00-11:00 AM: Twilight Fanfiction Author Fangroup. Why is it that I have a sneaking suspicion most TWILIGHT fan fiction is actually better written than the prose of Stephenie Meyer? Santa Rosa Room, Marriott Hotel and Marina

11:00-11:45 AM: Family Guy. Clips from the upcoming third STAR WARS parody? You know it. Beyond that, we all know this is a love it or hate it show. I used to hate it, but I’m warming up. Ballroom 20

11:45 AM-12:30 PM: The Cleveland Show. Ditto to everything I said above about FAMILY GUY, except for the STAR WARS part. Ballroom 20

11:45 AM-1:15 PM: Warner Bros.: Green Lantern, Sucker Punch, and Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows. Aside from the Marvel movie panel, this will be the big deal. Here’s why: GREEN LANTERN is an iconic DC character finally getting his own live-action movie. SUCKER PUNCH is the first original, non-adapted movie from visual stylist Zack Snyder (WATCHMEN/300), and no-one really knows what to expect yet. As for HARRY POTTER, well, people know almost exactly what to expect from that … Read More »

FRIDAY, JULY 23

STAR WARS DAY (This is a meaningless appellation unless and until George Lucas sees fit to say or do anything regarding the proposed live-action TV series.)

Luke Y Thompson covers Hollywood events at the Con for Deadline:

10:15-11:15 AM: Aloha, Earth! Have you heard they’re doing a new HAWAII FIVE-O TV show? Do you care? Well, you might want to attend the panel anyway, as the show’s executive producers are STAR TREK/TRANSFORMERS scribes Orci and Kurtzman, the director of the pilot is UNDERWORLD’s Len Wiseman, and it stars Daniel Dae Kim (LOST) and Grace Park (BATTLESTAR GALACTICA). Sure, they’ll try to steer the discussion toward this new show rather than talk about what you actually want them to talk about, but it’s a chance to see ‘em all at once anyway. Room 6BCF

11:00 AM-12:00 PM: Star Wars Day: Hasbro Panel. If you’re at Comic-Con, chances are you’ve owned STAR WARS toys at some point. Wanna see some new ones? This is the place. Room 7AB

11:00 AM-1:00 PM: Comic-Con How-To Session: Costuming with Sabrina Belly Dancer. From the official schedule: “Sabrina will show how to create a costume bra top for hall costumes or a masquerade performance.” In saying that, it has practically guaranteed that all the creepy raincoat dudes will come out of the woodwork for this one. Room 18

11:00 AM-12:00 PM: Mattel and DC Comics: A Heroic Partnership. Fans of action-figure collecting love Mattel’s DC superhero toys, and hate how hard … Read More »
