Comic-Con 2013

Ryan Kwanten as Eddie Brock

San Diego Comic-Con is a massive journey of discovery. Over the course of four days and five nights, people from all over the world converge on one spot to overload the tram system, punish the sewage system, hemorrhage hard earned cash for colorful plastic and printed pages, and take pictures of each other. In the midst of all that, we also find time to attend panels, catch up with creators, meet new people, reconnect with old friends, find the hottest upcoming trends, and get the early scoop on breaking news. This year the Film School Rejects were represented by two intrepid slack-jawed comic fans: interview specialist Jack Giroux and anger guru Robert Fure. We walked miles, spent hours in lines, followed CosPlay girls around the floor, and harassed the talent into giving us top secret information. After four days, two blackouts, a fist fight, and a cuddle session, here are our 12 favorite discoveries at San Diego Comic Con 2013.



The Predator franchise has fizzled in recent years, but like anything with even the slightest amount of name recognition, the next reboot is always right around the corner. Now, it seems that the corner the next Predator film is hiding behind can be found at Comic-Con. Over the weekend, 20th Century Fox released a new image onto the Facebook page for 2010’s Predators — an odd place to start building hype, but it seems to have done its job. The image (seen above) shows San Diego from the point of view of the Yuata’s (Predator’s) thermal vision, alongside a quote from the original film: “There’s something out there waiting for us, and it ain’t no man… We’re all gonna die.” Followed by a new hashtag.

Chances are that you won’t be going to Comic-Con this year, and short of hiring a model to dress as Bat Girl and hand you flyers you’re going to throw away, you’ll most likely be missing out on the authentic experience. You might come close if you wait in line for five hours to watch a trailer on YouTube, but there’s a better way to experience the giant geek party that infiltrates the convention center in San Diego every summer. You could also try eating three pounds of nachos while peeing next to Seth Green and a guy dressed as Vampire Hunter D. That might actually work. But if you don’t have those at your disposal, here’s a list of resources to help you stay neck-deep in Comic-Con goodies from July 18th and beyond. Starting, obviously, with us. Get excited. Because we sure are.
