Comic-Con 2014: Day 2

posted by Nell Minow

Copyright Scott Mantz 2014Day 2 of Comic-Con included: an interview with “Sharknado” and “Sharknado 2″ screenwriter Thunder Levin, a buggy lunch with Boxtrolls, press events with the directors and casts of four films, and appearing on the Rotten Tomatoes panel, where each attendee was given a paddle with a ripe tomato on one side and a rotten tomato on the other. Members of the audience got up to make one-minute pitches on behalf or against the conventional wisdom (and the legendary RT tomato-meter). In true Comic-Con fashion, we spent much too much time talking about the Transformers, the best two comments of the night were made by kids, and a ninja from “Mortal Kombat” made an impassioned — if not ultimately persuasive — case in favor of “The Notebook.”

boxtrolls bug lunchThe 75th anniversary of Batman is a very big deal here, of course, with a great display of costumes and props from the Batman movies and appearances from the stars of the 60’s television series, Adam West and Burt Ward, to promote the release of the series on DVD. Even Starbucks got into the spirit.
