Fans frolicked to this past weekend's Wondercon (sort of a little sister to San Diego Comic-Con), which had moved for the first time to Anaheim, California. And along with the proximity to Hollywood, came more stars.
Aside from panels for movies like "The Amazing Spider-Man," "Resident Evil: Retribution" and even "21 Jump Street" (which was already in theaters), new trailers arrived for two hotly anticipated summer movies.
We still know next-to-nothing about Ridley Scott's science fiction epic, "Prometheus," and the new trailer filled in a little more backstory about the movie, written by "Lost" co-creator Damon Lindelof.
It concerns a group of space-traveling archaeologists who encounter – surprise! – aliens. (The movie was originally developed as a prequel to Scott's "Alien.")
We'll finally learn just what "Prometheus" is all about when it hits theaters on June 8.
For a change of pace, there was also the second trailer for "Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter," revealed at a panel introduced by Tim Burton on video. Or rather, Burton in the form of "a mummified rubber figure shut up in a hospital room with stripper-esque nurses and a Russian Orthodox priest/doctor," according to GiantFreakinRobot.com.
Unlike "Prometheus," the movie's title is quite self-explanatory, but in this trailer we learn that Honest Abe came upon his vampire hunting ways well before he ever took the oath of office.
One can only guess how audiences will respond to this historical fiction horror film when it hits theaters on June 22.
Update 5:30 p.m.: We can't forget about Charlize Theron and Kristen Stewart's "Snow White and the Huntsman," now can we? Also starring Chris Hemsworth, the trailer shows Theron at her evil best and Stewart slipping into an English accent. "Snow White and the Huntsman" will open June 1.
Are you looking forward to these three films? Post your view below.
