This past weekend fans got a sneak peek at some of the biggest Hollywood projects coming out in 2016 at San Diego’s Comic Con and the force was defiantly with Star Wars.
True to rumors, Star Wars Director JJ Abrams’s brought fans a behind-the-scenes video at the making of the movie, a star-studded panel including Mark Hamill, Carrie Fisher and Harrison Ford—who hasn’t made a public appearance since his plane crash in March.
“It should have felt ridiculous,” Ford said about returning to a galaxy far far away after a 30 year hiatus. “I will tell you, it felt great. I was proud and grateful to once again be involved.” Best of all was the surprise John Williams’ music from Star Wars that happened a few hour later for 6,000 lucky fans.
Day three of Comic Con brought a different approach by Warner Bros.
As DC Comics and Warner Bros looks to tout the impending release of their comic book behemoth, Batman V. Superman: Dawn of Justice, they released a trailer bringing the two popular superheroes to the big screen.
Warner Brothers didn’t only focus on Batman V. Superman. They also gave the audience their first taste of the anti-hero movie “Suicide Squad” about villains turned black-ops agentsand announced a reboot to the Green Lantern franchise that missed the mark with audiences in 2011 when Ryan Reynolds played the Emerald Crusader.
To fans delight, Reynolds was there promoting his upcoming super hero flick Deadpool.
“It’s an absolute miracle that a studio let us make a Deadpool, let alone a rated-R Deadpool,” Reynolds said to a huge applause by the crowd. Following his opening clip Reynolds debuted the first trailer for the film which sent the crowd into a frenzy. But not to worry for those that couldn’t attend, Reynolds promises something special to be released in just a few short weeks.
Comic Con wasn’t only about the big screen. For the small screen AMC gave of two long trailers for “The Walking Dead” sixth season and its spin-off that takes viewers across the country and back to the early days of the Zombie Apocalypse in, “Fear The Dead.” And NBC gave us our first real look at the upcoming re-launch of the fan favorite series “Heroes” with the release of the trailer for “Heroes Reborn.”
