Best of New York Comic-Con

The sixth annual New York Comic-Con was host to its largest audience to date at over 100,000 people. And it’s thanks to that audience the convention got to deliver on some of the biggest events of the year in the world of geekdom. With the massive weekend now over, we take a look back the five biggest things that came out of NYCC 2011.



There wasn’t a whole lot feature film wise this year at New York Comic-Con, but the sheer quality of what was displayed nearly made up for that. Universal and Focus Features dominated the IGN Theater, partially helped by the fact they were the only one of the major studios showcasing their films. But thankfully, they came to impress and every film delivered. The three films that had panels and footage shown were: Joe Wright’s fantastical assassin oriented film Hanna, the much (currently) divisive prequel to The Thing, and of course the David Gordon Green comical pot filled epic Your Highness. Each film couldn’t be more different, but all of them still managed to play greatly, or at least well. The IGN theater wasn’t as chaos fueled as San Diego’s Hall H, so it’s a bit difficult to judge the general consensus, but each piece of footage seemed to receive a genuinely positive response. 



It gave me great pleasure to see that a screening of Big Man Japan went over so well at this past weekend’s New York Comic-Con. It gives me similar pleasure to share with you the film’s trailer.
