Comic-Con 2009 is Over. Or is it? Steve Explains

I’m finally home. After spending the last few days in San Diego at Comic-Con, I can say this year’s Convention was one of the best I’ve ever been to. I saw some great footage, interviewed a ton of people, and got to visit Flynn’s Arcade from “Tron”. The only thing I can say that’s a negative is…I wish I could have attended more panels. Unfortunately, this year had so much going on that you had to pick what was most important to you and let go of the rest. So while it pained me to miss the “Lost” panel and the “Avatar” footage, I decided to focus on landing as many exclusive interviews as I could. More after the jump:

Since it’s too much to get edit in one night and none of you have the time to watch it all in one sitting, my plan is to post 4 to 6 interviews a day. This is going to start tomorrow and run everyday till I run out of footage. And trust me; these aren’t some D-list movie stars. I spoke to some of the cast of “Twilight: New Moon”, the cast of “Kick-Ass”, everyone who makes NBC’s “Chuck”, and the people and/or filmmakers from “Avatar”, “Jonah Hex”, “A Nightmare on Elm Street”, “The Book of Eli”, Sam Rockwell for “Iron Man 2”, the “Mystery Team”, Richard Kelly for “The Box”, Neveldine/Taylor for “Gamer”, “Tron Legacy”, directors Ron Clements & John Musker for “The Princess and the Frog”, director Lee Unkrich for “Toy story 3”, and a lot more. As I said, it’s a ton of people.

Of course this is just the video interviews. I also have print interviews as well as more write-ups coming from the various events that other Collider writers covered. So while Comic-Con might have ended, over the next few days you can expect TONS of Comic-Con related content on Collider. I hope you’re ready.
