Comic-Con 2011: Hall H – Thursday

Comic-Con started with a bang this year.  Twilight was the first panel to headline the coveted Hall H lineup.  Believe it or not, there were fans standing in line outside the convention center for over a week waiting to get in.  Now that’s devotion!  Our own Mary Welms will have full coverage of that panel later this week, but for now, let’s focus on the following.  As you know, when you are at Comic-Con, even as a member of the press, it’s impossible to cover/hit everything.

Guillermo Del Toro was on hand to give fans a sneak peak at his newest upcoming horror film, Don’t Be Afraid of the Dark.  He was joined by stars Guy Pearce and Ron Perlman.  Director Nicolas Winding Refn was also there to show us some scenes from his upcoming film, starring Ryan Gosling, called Drive.  They both look pretty appealing if I do say so myself.

Up next, Fox treated fans to some extended footage of a film I am really looking forward to, Rise of the Planet of the Apes.  Also, Justin Timberlake (who did not seem to want to pose for pictures) was on stage bringing sexy back along with the beautiful Amanda Seyfried to give fans a sneak peak at their upcoming film called In Time.  And oh yeah…there was this little film they showed some clips of too.  What was that name?  Oh yeah!  Prometheus!  Anyone ever hear of it?  Charlize Theron was live on stage as the moderator and her talked to Ridley Scott via videoconferencing.
