    Comic Con 2007: Real-D

    Comic-Con 2007: Beowulf Cummin' At'cha

    It's not clear how aware the rest of the world is of the new Beowulf movie, but it's quite the huge deal here. Coming out in November in 3-D, 3-D IMAX, and plain old regular (not the way to see it if you can help it), this is a performance-capture a...

    Mexican Institute of Sound: A House of Blues Highlight!

    Comic-Con 2007: The Times' Shaky Bacon

    How amusing to see the Los Angeles Times doing something silly and fannish on its Comic-Con blog. They've dragged a plushie strip of bacon (which they've named "Shaky Bacon") to the convention, and have photos of their little friend's journey: from...

    Comic-Con 2007: Superman Doomsday

    Comic-Con 2007: American Dad
