Comic Con 09

So its another year of the biggest pop culture event Comic Con in San Diego. Comic Con is not just nerds with smelly armpits discussing the latest comic book news. It has become one of the biggest events for movie news and trailers! Movie stars were in full force the first 2 days at Comic Con. You had Johnny Depp to Kristen Stewart and the whole Twilight cast! Early word is that Twilight has ruled the Comic Con buzz. There were reports of lines so long to get into the Twilight Q and A. But besides the vampire followers of Twilight to me the big news was the release of the first Alice in Wonderland trailer! So here is the long awaited Alice in Wonderland trailer, brought to you by

Also another trailer released at Comic Con was Ninja Assassin. Here is a quick synopsis of the story. Ninja Assassin follows Raizo, the deadliest assassins in the world. Taken from the streets as a child, he was transformed into a trained assassin by the Ninjas of the Ozunu Clan, a secret society whose very existence is considered a myth. But haunted by the merciless execution of his friend by the Clan, Raizo breaks free from them and vanishes. Now he waits, preparing to exact his revenge. This film is produced by The Wachowski brothers who also brought us The Matrix trilogy. And a familiar name to the comic world helped pen the script J. Michael Straczynski. Looks pretty badass from this early trailer. With that said here is the trailer for your viewing pleasure.

Yes comics and comic cons have become semi mainstream! With the likes of The Dark Knight and Iron Man movies. Everyone these days knows of comic books and there movie lines. So if you have never been to a comic store I suggest you go and just look around. You will find some great reading material. And it seems Hollywood these days is buying up every good comic that is out there to be made into a movie. So for me comic books and movies go hand in hand now.

Until next time....Same blog spot and same blog time....
