What TORn learned at Comic-Con (so far)

July 24, 2010 at 11:44 am by MrCere  - 

It is Saturday morning at Comic-Con and before we head out to spend time at the Weta booth, meeting fans and enjoying the biggest celebration of the popular arts the world has ever known, we though we should give you a taste of the experience so far and what we have learned (and have time to type):
* Tolkien fans are amazing digital scavenger hunters
* Guillermo del Toro can make another Haunted Mansion movie sound special
* The New York Times might be listening
* Aspects of Comic-Con have “jumped the shark”
* Liv Tyler is still taking on genre films and is still beautiful
* Out of 450 people surveyed, 450 don’t want 3D for ‘The Hobbit’ (at the TORn panel)
* Warner Bros. has SDCC marketing figured out, imagine what they will do with ‘The Hobbit’
* Halloween is a costuming practice run for this week
* Shaking the ‘Hobbit’ rumor tree, drops a lot of fruit (more later!)
* Studio executives feel confident ‘The Hobbit’ is doing just fine, fans are freaked out
