Comic-Con makes Film & TV Announcement

June 5, 2007

Here it is… the list of films that will be represented at this year’s Comic-Con in San Diego! Superherohype makes a note that THE DARK KNIGHT was NOT announced… its pretty hard to believe that the Batman sequel WON’T be featured, so a later announcement will probably be made on that front. This is, after all, Comic-Con– the biggest event of its kind in the world, the place where studios roll out their movies to the core fanbase who help determine whether their project is the next 300, or the next CATWOMAN.

Here’s what we know you likely will see– I’ve bolded the panels Scramble Network plans to report from (there’s a lot of them!):

  • Alien vs. Predator 2: No Peace On Earth
  • American Gangster
  • Babylon A.D.
  • Balls of Fury
  • Battlestar Galactica
  • Beowulf
  • The Bourne Ultimatum
  • Coraline
  • Fred Claus
  • Get Smart
  • The Golden Compass
  • Hellboy 2: The Golden Army
  • Heroes
  • I Am Legend
  • The Incredible Hulk
  • Indiana Jones 4
  • The Invasion
  • Iron Man
  • Lost
  • National Treasure: Book of Secrets
  • Resident Evil: Extinction
  • Speed Racer
  • The Strangers
  • Stardust
  • Star Trek
  • Sunshine
  • Sweeney Todd
  • 30 Days of Night
  • Trick ‘r Treat
  • Wanted
  • Where the Wild Things Are
  • White Out

Looks like a great year… expect plenty of news to be made in San Diego that week!

Battlestar Galactica Coming to a Close

June 1, 2007

Whoa… huge news on the BATTLESTAR GALACTICA front… next season, which starts up in November, will be the LAST.

On the one hand, this is pretty depressing. BG is THE best show on cable, after all.

On the other hand, this does mean we’ll get a true ending to this great saga… we’ll all have closure… we’ll all find out…

What happens when they find Earth?
