Notes from San Diego Comic-Con 2011
Each July, more than 125,000 people descend on San Diego — many sporting a costume of their favorite comic book or movie character — to attend panel sessions, participate in social activities, and see and be seen at the San Diego Convention Center and around town. It’s impossible for any individual to capture the full experience of Comic-Con. Here are highlights of the event from my viewpoint: 345 photos taken over five days.
Separate sets are available for some of the major sessions and activities, including:
The panel session “The Evolution of Web Series: The Guild to Dragon Age” with Felicia Day, Peter Winther, Doug Jones, and Mark Darrah.
Damon Lindelof hosts the 20th Century Fox presentation featuring Charlize Theron, Justin Timberlake, Amanda Seyfried, and Andy Serkis.
Director Steven Spielberg and producer Peter Jackson discuss Paramount Pictures’ The Adventures of Tintin.
Relativity Media panels on Haywire with Channing Tatum, Gina Carano and Steven Soderbergh; and Raven with John Cusack, Alice Eve, Luke Evans, and James McTeigue.
Screen Gems’ Underworld Awakening panel with actors Kate Beckinsale, Michael Ealy, and Theo James; producer Len Wiseman; directors Mans Marlind and Bjorn Stein; and moderator Chris Gore.
IndieVest Pictures’ Knights of Badassdom panel with actors Summer Glau, Peter Dinklage, Margarita Levieva, Ryan Kwanten, Jimmi Simpson, Danny Pudi, and Michael Gladis along with director Joe Lynch.
Kristen Stewart, Charlize Theron, Chris Hemsworth, and Sam Claflin discuss Universal Pictures’ Snow White and the Huntsman.
Watchmen artist Dave Gibbons, colorist John Higgins, and editor Len Wein discuss the legacy of the revolutionary comic book series.
Comic book artists and creators.
And, of course, cosplay: attendees in the costumes of their favorite characters.
