Comic con Day 2 (Revenge of the Nerds (July 2008)
Day 2 Started off witha nice breakfast at a Hotel in Downtown ---which apparently was the hotel of choice for the Dr Horrible cast --since we saw actress Felicia Day there and Neil Patrick Harris having breakfast there as well.
After our fancy satisfying breakfast we entered the chaos and lost Danny almost immediately somewhere near the Warner Brothers booth--As nerds fought over Star Trek Posters at the Paramount booth
We made our way through the mess and hung out with a Sleestack
Some blurry Venture Brothers henchmen
This is the most ridiculous Wheel Chair ever----This guy was ready for the end of the world with the gear he had---as he took a picture of
This spear weilding girl
Devil Girl holding Dark Trooper's lightsaber
'Damn Fracking Toasters"
Tiki Time at Comic con
The Joker had a big presence at the Con this year
Another Panel I missed The Office (shank)
Girls holding a Pole
Even Devil Girl needs to make a phone call
"Oh I need that" --Fortune and Glory
Danny pranking Ironman
And then getting shanked by a lightsaber
Clone Wars Indy Car --Damn that is sweet
Saw Dennis Miller there ---actually heard him first saying "now that's an inaction figure"
"Where are we going to go for lunch?" -----"THAT PLACE"
The Dunn Boys
The Tilted Kilt --right near Pet Co park... Amazing ESPN Zone meets a classier Hooters...Good food and fun pub environment
With cool Posters Like Fawlty Towers
I was mesmerized by one Waitress (Since I figured a marriage proposal was out of the question before even knowing her name I got the myspace photo op instead) Oh Darcy!!!!
After missing the Panel we wanted to see the most--Because Eric's Watch stopped at 12pm for several hours....(oh Battlestar Panel hosted by Kevin Smith -- we missed you) Also missed Joss Whedon Dollhouse Panel for upcoming series as well.
We did get into 2nd half of Pixar Panel which discussed upcoming film UP --Here is Pete Doctor director discussing..
It looked ok Story of an old man traveling on a journey in his house attached to balloons... Yeah whatever---but it is Pixar --they haven't made a bad film yet.. Mr Incredible had a question
Then Stuck around for Universal Panel
Tue, Jul 15, 11:09AM 3:45-5:15 Universal: The Mummy: Tomb of the Dragon Emperor and Death Race— Universal Pictures presents key cast members, filmmakers, and previously unseen footage from its upcoming slate, including Summer 2008's The Mummy: Tomb of the Dragon Emperor and Death Race. Additionally, the studio will showcase talent and materials from 2009 films such as Land of the Lost and Drag Me to Hell.
Here are pictures of an Encino Man looking Brendon Frasier from the Mummy ----Which looks good --but very over the top as we saw a clip that inculded Yetis --all Wookie style
The Sexy Maria Bello
I was a little Disappointed with clips from Death Race --since they seemed to have taken out everything cool about the original --including the running over innocent bystanders for points and giving the drivers another person in the car...Whatever--Jason Statham rocks
Then a pleasantsurprise --Sam Raimi has a new horror movie --going back to his Evil Dead Roots----
The trailer was just blah....Whatever horror movie.. "Drag me to hell" but then they showed a clip -----Awesome Evil Dead style craziness Can't wait -but Universal needs to repackage the trailer or True Raimi fans will not know what they are missing.
The Beautiful Alison Lohman
Then there was thisLand of the LOST sneak trailer with clips starring Will Ferrell and a Ferrell less panel
After the panels we took one last tour of the Comic con floor
I love Stormtroopers just roaming the Con Solo
"Go Joe" --i mean Cobra
Cool Bathroom sign
A missed photo Op -but line was to long to stand in front of the Stargate
"Hold on that explains everything the Dharma Initiative is run by the aliens from V"
