SDCC: IN TIME one of the best surprises of Comic-Con so far

I wasn't really sure what to expect of IN TIME, but their comic-con trailer really piqued my interest. Check out the trailer:

SDCC: Friday Panel Recap, including everything from THE RAVEN to THE AMAZING SPIDER-MAN

By Kevin Taylor

After I heard about the absurd lines that were developing at Ballroom 20 due to the True Blood panel, I decided to spend my day at Hall H. There were a handful of movies there, and a few that I am very excited about. Lets check it out.

The Raven:
I walked in during the middle of this panel, but from what I saw it actually looked pretty cool. The movie has John Cusack portraying Edgar Allen Poe in the last five days of Poe's life. The story revolves around a series of murders that are loosely based on some of Poe's most famous poems. The look and vibe reminded me alot of Sweeney Todd and Sleepy Hollow, and it will definitely be one to keep an eye on next year, coming out March 9, 2012.


Steven Soderbergh and his crew of secret agent killers were next to take the stage in Haywire, a movie that stars mixed martial arts fighter Gina Carano as essentially a female Jason Bourne. The cast is packed, including Channing Tatum, Ewan McGregor, Antonio Banderas, Michael Douglas, and Bill Paxton, amongst others. There were some pretty awesome action scenes, and overall seems like it will be good for a few awesome fight scenes, though I don't know if it will be much else then that. I'll be happy to me proven wrong though!

Underworld 4:
This panel didn't present much interest to me, as I haven't seen any of the first three. However, it was shot in 3-d, and looked like it had some great action. I can only assume that anyone who enjoyed the first three will love this one as well.

See more after the break!
