The Best and Worst of Comic-Con 2010

Comic-Con 2010 is over, and I’m still reeling from the experience. Just like last year, the entire event was a whirlwind with insane crowds, a healthy dose of line waiting, and some unexpected bits of awesome. By the time it was over, I was more than ready to go home. But I know for a fact that in a week or two I’ll be screaming “We have to go back!” — while disheveled and inexplicably bearded.

At some point this week, the entire /Film crew will record their overall thoughts of the event on a special episode of the /Filmcast. But for now, here are my personal picks for the best and worst of Comic-Con 2010. (Fair warning: I didn’t include some major panels [see: Marvel stuff] that failed to get me excited. If you liked those panels, and others I didn’t mention let us know in the comments.)

Movie Trailer #2: Let Me In

Overture Films has released a new movie trailer for Matt Reeves‘ big screen adaptation Let Me In, a remake of the critically acclaimed 2008 Swedish film Let The Right On In. You can read about the Comic-Con panel, where this new trailer premiered, in our previous coverage. I was extremely impressed with the footage they screened in Hall H. And if the scenes screened are any indication, this film might have award potential. Watch the full length movie trailer now, embedded after the jump.

Matt Reeves, the director of Cloverfield, knows that he faces an uphill battle with Let Me In, his remake of the Swedish film Let the Right One In. Or, as it were, his alternate take on the John Ajvide Lindqvist novel of the same name. This new version of the story has been met with a great deal of resistance from fans, as it was announced before the original film had even been able to move from festivals to US movie screens.

So Reeves came to the San Diego Comic Con with his core cast in tow: Kodi Smit-McPhee, Chloe Moretz and Richard Jenkins. (Sadly for me, the Elias Koteas fanboy, those were the only three appearances.) And Reeves brought along two clips that show the differences between this version and the original, and make a really strong case for taking Let Me In seriously. In short: the footage looked great.

Last week we saw the first international trailer for Let Me In, the American remake of Let the Right One In. Now there’s a UK poster that sports a minimal, bloody design. But the US distributor of the film is in trouble, and after the heads of the company resigned last week, will we have to wait some time for the marketing push to begin in the States? Read More »

International Movie Trailer: Let Me In


Ever since Matt Reeves’ Let Me In (a remake of Let the Right One In) was first announced, I’ve been simultaneously excited and fearful about the anticipated results. My hope was that an American remake could help bring attention to Tomas Alfredson’s Swedish original. But that film was so understated and sublime, I didn’t know if Reeves would trample all over it.

Now the international trailer for has hit the web and it looks…surprisingly faithful? Hit the jump to check it out and leave your thoughts in the comments.
