Starting tomorrow, attendees of Comic-Con 2009 will get a sneak peak into some of the most biggest, most buzzed-about flicks from...the future! Fanboys and Twilight tweens will gather to get up in the faces of Robert Pattinson, Robert Downey Jr., Scarlett Johansson, Tim Burton and James Cameron
What kinds of questions? Well, like...
"Rob Pattz, uh...OMG...EEEEE!!"
Pattinson, Kristen Stewart and Taylor Lautner—along with New Moon director Chris Weitz—will all be appearing. There are rumors of exclusive New Moon footage, special Rob-recorded songs for the soundtrack, and we hope to hear about how Kristen tackled this way-dark chapter in Bella's life.
"Mr. James Cameron, why on earth did you kill off Leo? JK!! Anywho, just what the hell is your budget-busting, 3-D Avatar thing about?"
Cameron—who hasn't made a feature film since Titanic—is set to show 20 minutes of never-before-seen footage of his supersecretive sci-fi flick Avatar. Oh, which is also in 3-D. Cameron has racked up a $200 million budget, so we better be blown away. We'll report back.
"Hey, cast members of Iron Man 2! How's Mickey Rourke doing these days?"
Crowd-charmer and filmmaking virtuoso Jon Favreau will most definitely be in attendance to discuss the 2010 superhero flick. Other cast members who could drop by are Robert Downey Jr., Mickey Rourke, Sam Rockwell, Don Cheadle, Gwyneth Paltrow and of course Scarlett Johansson.
"Hello, Peter Jackson! Cute beard! What's the scoop on District 9 and The Hobbit?"
Jackson's sci-fi movie about aliens and, like, race-relations, District 9, is coming to theaters soon. But hardly anything is known about what's in store for the new two-part Middle Earth melodrama he's producing, The Hobbit. Maybe he'll drop some casting news or plot details? Or a magic ring?
"Hi Tim Burton, what was the inspiration for the not-for-kids, live-action version of your upcoming Alice in Wonderland?"
Oh, we'll also take any intel about Johnny Depp's turn-ons, favorite lunch spots and hair-conditioning strategies.
