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.
Thor: The Dark World was the focus at the Marvel booth.
Miniature Walking Dead people on a glowing base that Patrick’s phone found it hard to cope with.
Predator 3D, the rerelease of Predator on Blu-ray 3D.
Fox’s booth – or the stack of TV screens they had, just hanging out over the top of… nothing, really. Carpet.
Edge of Tomorrow costumes – mech suits for Emily Blunt, on the left, and Tom Cruise, on the right in Doug Liman’s sci-fi movie, previously known as All You Need Is Kill.
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.
Ninja Turtles at the Nickelodeon booth.
Primeval: The New World.
Charles Band and Full Moon’s killer dolls.
Costumes from Seventh Son at Legendary’s booth.
One of those tough-nut Homeland Security robots from Elysium.
Also at the Weta booth, Azog the Defiler.
Adult Swim will massage you.
This Kick Ass 2 replica weapon is for sale, with Jim Carrey’s face on the box.
A fully articulated Dutch figure from Predator. Note that I said articulated, with a d.
A Robocop diorama.
Big A-Team van, little A-Team van.
That was preview night. And now we’re in a pile, crying.
