As I mentioned in my Thursday and Friday Comic Con schedule posts, I have to miss Saturday and Sunday due to work. Should I quit? Probably, but which one of you is going to support my alcohol intake? Trust me you don’t want that burden. I sulked quite a bit over the weekend as each day’s schedule of The Con was released, so I figured I should at least provide the panels I would have gone too each day. You only get my top 3 though because I may start crying if I have to write about more.
Sat. 10:00-11:00 After Earth
M. Night is at it again people. Hide yo kids. Hide yo wives. Hide yo dignity. I would like to think Will Smith wouldn’t agree to one of his movies that has a lame twist. Hell maybe it doesn’t even have one!
Doubt it though, that would be like Tyler Perry making a movie that didn’t have himself in it. At least that movie could have a chance to be funny. The plot takes place 1000 years after humans have left a ravaged planet Earth and Big Willy Style and his son crash land on it. And I do mean his actual son Jaden. Still though I’m intrigued and I’d really like to check this one out. However you’ll have to choose between this or…
Sat. 10:00-11:00 Attack of the Show
I’m sorry, but this is just a good show. One of the best hosts in Kevin and two hot nerdy awkward babes in Candace Bailey and 2010 POY Sara Underwood. Someone bring a drool rag and some tape to tuck it back. Just one picture with Sara and the week would have been worth it. Maybe play it cool, see if she wants to grab some drinks. Yea right, I’d probably be convulsing on the ground seizing from pleasure. I think I may have a shot if I pretended to have cancer and cosplay as Professor Xavier. May be taking it a bit far though.
Sat. 2:30-5:00 Warner Bros. Pictures and Legendary Pictures Preview Their Upcoming Lineups
Here’s what you’re getting here; Man of Steel, Hobbit, & Pacific Rim previews. Yes it’s 2 1/2 hrs long, but which one of those aren’t you curious about? Pacific Rim may be the least well known, but it’s monsters vs giant robots done by Guillermo Del Toro. Either it’s going to be hysterical seeing how they’re trying to make this a decent movie or it’s going to be amazing. No chance for anything in between. Superman and The Hobbit speak for themselves. Make sure to get here at the beginning of the day for this one and take turns standing in line with your buddies.
Honorable Mentions: Warehouse 13, Django Unchained, Alphas, Marvel: Avengers vs X-Men, Halo 4, Iron Man 3, Fringe
Writers Note – You may notice there’s only one Sunday panel mentioned. There’s a good reason; Sunday looks like it’s going to blow so just cruise the main floor that day.
