The thriller Escape Plan won’t have a panel at this year’s Comic-Con, but Summit Entertainment is planning to do fans one better. The film stars Sylvester Stallone as a structural security expert who is wrongly imprisoned, and must break out of a seemingly inescapable facility with the help of a fellow inmate (Sylvester Stallone). Looking at the trailer, I think the flick looks like a fun 90s throwback, and now Comic-Con attendees will get a chance to see if the movie can deliver on its potential at a special fan screening. According to the press release, the screening will be on Thursday, July 18th, and “Passes for the screening will be available through online giveaways, at the Summit Booth on the convention floor on July 18th, and via giveaway outside the screening location, the evening of the event, while supplies last.” The fan line outside the theater (701 5th Ave) will open at 5:00pm. Stallone and Schwarzenegger will be on hand for the red carpet, so I expect the excitement from the crowd will be completely nuts.
