We spent the day at Wondercon 2012 in Anaheim, CA and got some on-the-scene news for you. Here is a round-up of Saturday’s (Mar.17) news.
First of all, the cosplay on the floor was largely green in honor of St. Patty’s day. We saw lots of Green Lanterns and Green Arrows, and even Wonder Woman had a shamrock in her hair. Or was it his hair? Hard to be sure.
The big news of the day was the launch of the “Prometheus” trailer. The long-awaited Ridley Scott sci-fi action film had audiences roaring with happiness. Check out our story and watch what had fanboys and fangirls over the moon.
Geek goddess Felicia Day launched a new YouTube channel called “Geek & Sundry” which will be debuting new shows like “Tabletop” and “Written By a Kid,” and host her award-winning web series, “The Guild.” Check out the trailer below.
“Sound of My Voice,” the new film from “writer/star Brit Marling and writer/director Zal Batmanglij previewed its first 12 minutes. You can watch it too at soundofmyvoicemovie.com. The film is about a cult centered around a possible time traveler and it just blew us away.
We got to check out a pretty amazing action scene from “Resident Evil: Retribution” involving some pretty kick butt moves from star Milla Jovovich. Check out what she says about zombie nightmare here.
There was some new footage from “Battleship” and director Peter Berg told us about game psychologists (the film is based on the Hasbro game of the same name) and what gaming does to you. He played Battleship with one and when she sank his ship, she explained that his feeling of wanting to kill her over something so small was indicative of why this game has been around for 80 years.
The trailer for “Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter” debuted as well and it looks pretty great. Hey, how can you beat a President who not only got rid of slavery, but pulls weapons out of his hat and slays vamps? Check out the trailer here.
