Photos: Inside Preview Night At The San Diego Comic-Con

I’m sure a lot of more comic book-centric imagery is only a click or two away, but here’s a sweep of the film and TV material we saw in the exhibit hall at Comic-Con tonight.

Marvel’s booth was particularly disappointing; Fox and Warner Bros. didn’t seem to be trying too hard either. At least most of the other teams seemed to be making more of an effort.

Here’s a selection of our shots from around the film and TV sectors.

Lego and Back to the Future.

Fox’s booth – or the stack of TV screens they had, just hanging out over the top of… nothing, really. Carpet.

I know, I know – there must be some trickery at work here because Tom Cruise just isn’t that tall.

Warner Bros. borrowed Fox’s booth idea of not really having one and hanging screens from the upper gantry.




The Walking Dead season 3 Blu-ray box-set behind glass that basically dares you to break it. Somebody is going to do it, I fear.


And more Walking Dead shenanigans, including a walker in a little cage of mesh fencing.
