Last year The Final Girls came and went from theaters and VOD rather quickly, not giving it much time to find an audience. However, in the short time since its release, the film has started to become a cult favorite with midnight screenings popping up in various cities, some accompanied by drag shows, and others featuring director Todd Strauss-Schulson and some of the cast in attendance. Now fans in San Diego during Comic-Con will get a chance to partake in one of those events themselves.
The Final Girls will have a “secret” midnight screening on Saturday, July 23 at 11:59pm as well as a panel earlier in the day just a couple blocks from the convention center where all the action is happening. So if you’re a horror fan who isn’t pleased with the offerings inside the convention center itself, this is where you’ll want to be on Saturday. Get details on The Final Girls Comic-Con panel and screening after the jump. Read More »

One of the biggest problems Comic-Con has had in recent years is trying to contain the exclusive video content that is meant to only be seen by those lucky enough to be in attendance for panels of anticipated movies and their favorite TV shows. Thanks to the advent of camera phones and fast internet speeds, it’s been harder and harder to keep content “exclusive” to the convention. However, that may change this year.
Guardians of the Galaxy director James Gunn took to Facebook this weekend to tease the arrival of Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2. The filmmaker has already teased that the panel for the sequel at Comic-Con would give attendees a glimpse at the first footage, but fans asked when everyone else might see a teaser trailer. Gunn’s answer to this question indicated that fans wouldn’t have to wait long after Comic-Con, and also mentioned some kind of “new technology” that will prevent piracy from the convention.
