Comic-Con Movie Update: Studios Attending

by at . Comments

Comic-Con has become a huge event for not only geeks and comic-book junkies out there.  It is a huge event full of big stars and big films.   So which studios will be there to showcase their latest movies?

It seems that a lot of the big ones are MIA or have yet to announce any presence at the huge convention from July 21-24 at the San Diego Convention Center

Here's what we do know:

Universal will be there with its huge tentpole Cowboys and Aliens.  In fact, the premiere of the movie is going to happen at Comic-Con and many fans are invited to attend this first-look at the film. Most of the stars, including Daniel Craig and Harrison Ford should be on hand to help promote the film.

Warner Bros. doesn't appear to have anything going on at Comic-Con this year, which is surprising considering it had a huge presence last year with Green Lantern.   But it does make sense seeing as the studio has two big films, Man of Steel and The Dark Knight Rises, but they probably aren't even close to presentation ready.   Maybe next year.  The studio won't be missing altogether.  It has a lot of TV shows that will be at the geek-fest.

Man of Steel star Henry Cavill will be on-hand to promote his upcoming Relativity film Immortals.  Relativity actually has a huge presence at the festival this year.  The production company will also be showing off its upcoming horror flick, Shark Night, with the entire cast (Sara Paxton, Katharine McPhee, Dustin Milligan, Chris Carmack, Joel David Moore, Sinqua Walls, and Alyssa Diaz) expected to attend.

There's been some buzz about a Captain America screening from Paramount, but nothing has been confirmed on that one and it would be the same weekend the film actually opens, so it might not be worth creating buzz, seeing as it would be after-the-fact.  There is also the possibility that Steven Spielberg will show up to present footage of Paramount's The Adventures of Tintin: The Secret of the Unicorn, considering that is set to be released this December.

Sony will also be on-hand to show footage and present part of the new Spider-Man.  Andrew Garfield and Emma Stone will also be there to help promote the much-too-soon remake.

20th Century Fox will have its Rise of the Planet of the Apes remake on-hand, starring James Franco.  They will be on-hand to try and convince audiences James Franco is worth the rising ticket prices for such an overdone premise.

Lionsgate will be there with their new young superstar Taylor Lautner, promoting the thriller Abduction, which is set to hit theaters on September 23rd.  Naturally Lautner will be pulling double-duty, also promoting Summit's Breaking Dawn - Part 1, but we'll get to that later.  Lionsgate will also have a panel for the upcoming Fighter-remake (not really) called Warrior, starring Joel Edgerton and Tom Hardy.

And lastly, Summit Entertainment will be there again, pimping out The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn for all its worth.  The film was huge hit (naturally) last year and will probably cause fans to come out in droves.
