Well, folks, here we are: the end of Comic-Con 2012. The booths are being disassembled, the nerds are flocking to the exits, booth-babe pictures are being stored on hard-drives, and poster-tubes packed with sweet, sweet limited-paper goodness are being carried triumphantly from the San Diego Convention Center. What screenprints were we able to score before fleeing the SDCC for the safety of the San Diego airport? Oh, nothing special: just a few more awesome Mike Mitchell pieces from Mondo’s ongoing Adventure Time series and a Jay Shaw print autographed by none other than Guillermo del Toro.
Read all about ‘em after the jump, my fellow poster-geeks.
Mimic is one of those typical Hollywood thrillers where people venture into areas no normal person would dare go. In one sequence, three men travel deep below the earth in search of nasty insect-thingys and find themselves stuck amidst murky shadows and rickety old construction platforms. Our interest wanes because, while the scene remains tense throughout, we stopped giving a damn about the characters’ fate the moment they decided to make the trip in the first place. My review of the Blu-ray after the jump.
We have two quick pieces of Blu-ray/DVD news for you this afternoon. First up, Blu-ray.com reports that the Blu-ray director’s cut of Guillermo del Toro’s Mimic will hit stores on September 27th. For those who never saw del Toro’s first English-language feature, the story is about genetically mutated giant cockroaches that can mimic human form. Mimic is del Toro’s weakest film, and he repeatedly clashes with the Weinsteins over the script and at least one scene was directed by producer Ole Bornedal. The new edition will feature 7 additional minutes of restored footage and bring the movie closer to del Toro’s original vision. The Blu-ray will also included a variety of special features that were missing from the original barebones 1998 DVD release.
Hit the jump for a list of special features for Mimic plus the first details for Marvel’s upcoming Blu-ray of Thor.
