Studios may skip Comic-Con
The New York Times is reporting that several movie studios may be dropping or lessening their presence at Comic-Con this year.
Apparently, just showing a clip at Comic-Con doesn’t automatically equal dollars.
“Sucker Punch” and “Scott Pilgrim” are movies that made a splash at Comic-Con, but underperformed at the box office.
Since both of those movies were pretty great, I must surmise that Comic-Con was right, and general audiences are wrong. Sorry, general audiences, but if you didn’t enjoy “Scott Pilgrim,” I don’t know why you’re going to the movies. Just stay home and watch “According to Jim” reruns.
I’d already decided to skip Comic-Con this year, so, this won’t affect my year too much. And honestly, while I love me some movies, I do enjoy the idea that actual comics might get some more attention out of Comic-Con.
Sounds like there will still be plenty of movie stuff to see, too.
The NYT reports big pushes are planned for “Cowboys and Aliens,” “The Adventures of Tintin: The Secret of the Unicorn,” “Rise of the Planet of the Apes,” and “The Amazing Spider-Man.”
