New episode! It’s Comic Con time again, and that means us talking about footage we haven’t seen but that has been described to us by people who have seen it! Only this year we actually spend most of our time talking about footage from last year, previously only available in a horrible form, but now released in much flashier formats. I am talking, of course, about the Tron: Legacy test footage, which you can download in a variety of pretty ways from THIS PLACE. I would embed it but it really deserves to be seen in the highest resolution you can, because this one’s all about the visuals. Also, headphones. Loud.
Other than that and the Iron Man 2 footage (which, again, has not been released yet and probably never will be), there wasn’t much exciting to come out of the convention this year. There was some cool comic news, but that really doesn’t seem to be the focus anymore, as it just gets lost in the stampede.
Not mentioned in the cast, because I hadn’t read it yet, was this report from Deadline Hollywood Daily, which talks about how disappointing the “9″ panel was and how the studio decided to pretend that people cared by playing their footage again even though no one wanted to watch it. This is a film that has some fairly big names attached, and the trailer keeps trying to make me think it’s a good movie but I am not excited for it in the least.
