San Diego Comic-Con Is Underway

Jul 18 2013, 8:08am CDT | by

Joe Scarnici/FilmMagic(SAN DIEGO) -- Comic-Con International: San Diego officially got underway on Thursday.

Despite its humble beginnings as the tiny Golden State Comic Book Convention back in 1970, San Diego Comic-Con has ballooned into a multi-day, multimillion dollar mecca for all things pop culture, and a major stop for fans and for celebrities and studios promoting upcoming projects.

A galaxy of stars will be on hand for the festivities, including the cast of The Amazing Spider-Man 2; Harrison Ford, promoting his sci-fi film Ender's Game; Hugh Jackman, backing next week's The Wolverine; and Bryan Cranston, plugging both the final season of Breaking Bad and next year's Godzilla re-boot, just to name a few.

One of the first of many sneak peeks that was unveiled at the convention was a teaser of Jamie Foxx, in glowing blue makeup, as the Amazing Spider-Man sequel villain Electro./>/>/>/>

"You wanna know how powerful I am?" he rasps ominously.  "Well I wanna know, too."

On the convention's main floor, they're selling everything from action figures to celebrity autographs.  Just some of those who will be on hand to whip out the Sharpies -- for a fee -- will be X-Files stars David Duchovny and Gillian Anderson, the casts of current hits like Dexter and The Walking Dead, and comic book legend Stan Lee.

At another convention last month, Lee, the co-creator of iconic heroes like Iron Man, X-Men, and Spider-Man, told ABC News Radio he "loves" the chance to talk to the hundreds of fans who line up to see him./>/>/>/>

"The thing I like is that they're all different ages: young kids, older people...I'm amazed," he said.

All told, the convention is expected to bring more than a hundred thousand fans -- and over $125 million -- to the area./>/>

The figures have a detachable bag of cash and a bag of methamphetamines. Toys R Us, which is based in Wayne, ...

Chris Pratt just got even more awesome. The "Guardians of the Galaxy" star is hosting the season premiere of "SNL" this weekend, but first he stopped by "The Tonight Show" on Thursday to face off with Jimmy Fallon in "Word Sneak," a game where you try to use random words in casual conversation. Fallon has played the game in the past with Ricky Gervais and Bryan Cranston, but the "totally natural" way these two use "titmou ...

Breaking Bad, Sherlock, and Television's Golden Age of Anti-Heroes

Sep 2 2014 12:09pm CDT | Source: Huffington Post

This year's Emmy Awards proved to be very big for Breaking Bad and, at least numerically, a little bit bigger for Sherlock. The BBC's updating of Arthur Conan Doyle's classic detective carted away seven Emmy Awards in the miniseries and television movie categories, one more than Breaking Bad, one of the critical shows in this golden age of television, for its final season as a regular dramatic series. But the AMC dr ...

In Honor Of That Emmys Makeout, Here Are 8 More Epic Seinfeld Reunions

Aug 26 2014 12:43pm CDT | Source: Huffington Post

Even anti-dentites could appreciate the mini "Seinfeld" reunion that happened at the 2014 Emmys. For a moment, Bryan Cranston and Julia Louis-Dreyfus seemed to reprise their old "Seinfeld" roles of Tim Whatley and Elaine Benes as they shared a kiss that stole the whole night. The two also got together recently for an Emmys sketch that had Cranston opening up a pawn shop with Aaron Paul, but there are many other reunions from the show about ...

'Sherlock' Dominated Without Benedict Cumberbatch, And More Emmy 2014 Facts

Aug 26 2014 12:08pm CDT | Source: Huffington Post

Many of us banked on a buzzy new show like "Orange is the New Black" or "True Detective" steering the post-Emmy narrative, but instead it's a middlebrow British crime series in its third season. "Sherlock" was the night's big winner, with seven awards. The BBC series toppled HBO's "The Normal Heart" to win two acting accolades (Benedict Cumberbatch and Martin Freeman) and Outstanding Writing for a Min ...

Grading The Highs And Lows Of The 2014 Emmys

Aug 25 2014 10:44pm CDT | Source: Huffington Post

We all hate the Emmys now, right? They were pretty rank this year. We expected great change to grace TV's biggest night (a strong Netflix showing, a lack of "Modern Family" victories), but we were left with the exact opposite. Seth Meyers' hosting job was a letdown, and the only perfect thing about the show was it ending two minutes ahead of schedule. Here are this year's highs and lows, scored on a scale of 1 to 10.
