Now in its 25th year, WonderCon continues to bring comic characters to life, with artists, writers, and fans showing off their skills.
WonderCon, the comic book convention classic, comes to San Francisco in all its graphics glory.
Not everyone can make it to WonderCon every year, I understand that. Honestly though, if you don't deal well with crowds, you should probably stay home, because, wow.
Even with Christian Bale ("Batman") as John Connor, I've yet to get excited about this fourth entry in the series Terminator Salvation. At WonderCon on Saturday, the movie's director, McG yelled at me for a good 30 minutes to get me to change.
The annual comic book convention held over the weekend in San Francisco was an exclamation of the art and pop culture worlds colliding.
WonderCon 2009 featured more than just fans in elaborate costumes. Superhero physics and debates about genre fiction held court, too.
JJ Abrams (creator of "Lost" and "Alias" was on hand along with the new Spock (Zachary Quinto), Uhura (Zoe Saldana) and the new James T. Kirk (Chris Pine) to debut the brand new trailer for "Star Trek."
Director Zack Snyder was on hand to introduce the footage which, by now you've probably already read a play by play of. If not, check here. What I'll do here is just give my impressions of what I saw.
I got to see about 17 minutes of the film via five scenes Pixar debuted. My impressions after viewing the clips is that the movie looks very good--visually, conceptually, and just for pure entertainment.
My decision to do this, as you might surmise, has everything to do with the movie blowing me the "eff" away. It stomped on my throat, impaled me with a broadsword and then punched me square in the face. And I mean that in the best possible way.
