Comic-Con 2011

posted by Nell Minow

I’m on my way to Comic-Con 2011, this year featuring the first glimpses of Twilight’s “Breaking Dawn — Part 1″ along with Steven Spielberg’s “The Adventures of Tintin,” the Colin Farrell remake of “Total Recall” and “In Time,” a thriller with Justin Timberlake and Amanda Seyfried.  You haven’t heard about some of these?  That’s the fun of it; Comic-Con is where it all begins.  It’s not just movies.  “True Blood,” “Lost,” and “Glee” got the word out via Comic-Con and this year we will see get updates on longtime fan favorites like “Buffy” and hear about the new projects from some Comic-Con regulars like Kevin Smith and Joss Whedon.

Entertainment Weekly points out in the current issue that back in 1976 a film no one had ever heard up sent a rep with a card table to sell the Con’s first promotional posters for a movie whose release was still a year away.  Those posters are now sold (if you can find one) for $3000 and this year, that same film will be saluted with an elaborate booth in support of its six-movie Blu-Ray release with never-before-seen footage: Star Wars: The Complete Saga (Episodes I-VI). What will this year’s attendees know about before anyone else?  Stay tuned for my reports — and of course my always-popular pictures of the attendees in costume.

The November Man
Pierce Brosnan knows what it is like to play a spy in a big-budget, glamorous, blockbuster. He was the most urbane of Bonds in four movies. He knows what it is to play a seedier spy in a prestige, mildly meta movie, the 2001 film "The Tailor of Panama" (with Daniel Radcliffe in a pre-Potter role). S

This is hilarious and, I have to say, accurate.  Thank you, John Atkinson of Wrong Hands!

I'm really looking forward to "Dolphin Tale 2," even more so after seeing this music video by Cozi Zuehlsdorff, the young actress who reprises her role as Hazel from the original film. Cozi’s song, which she wrote and performs herself, is called “Brave Souls” and in this video she explains how
