Preview Night at Comic-Con 2006

After arriving in San Diego and lunch, I checked out the exciting preview night at the San Diego Comic-Con.
The biggest hype might be for the upcoming Snakes on a Plane. Star Samuel L. Jackson is going to be here Friday afternoon. Here is the big New Line cinema display for it.
They are also pushing Guillermo Del Toro's Pan's Labyrinth, which looks pretty creepy. Also, thank god, the sequel to the Butterfly Effect is out this fall.
Another big film seems to be Michael Bay's Transformers. I don't have high hopes for this film.
Spiderman 3 will also get a big sell at this con this weekend.
Oh, check out The Descent, a horror film about a group of girlfriends who go caving in the Appalachian mountains. It's directed by the guy who did Dog Soldiers. It comes out domestically next month, but I watched the DVD on the plane- it's really good and scary and gory!
Here is a picture of girls they hired to try to get nerds to audition for the Revenge of the Nerds remake. Normally, if not paid, they probably wouldn't give any of us the time of day.

Lastly, (this is for my buddy Claus) - look who I met (below): Kevin Grevioux, one of the writers and the badass Lycan from Underworld!
