The Sony Comic-Con 2006 Wrap Up – Hear Interviews from the Cast and Directors of

     August 1, 2006

I cannot believe I am finally typing these words. In what feels like it has taken forever, I have finally cleaned up and uploaded all the audio interviews that I recorded from the Sony portion of Comic-Con. More specifically, these are the press conferences that the actors and directors did for the media prior to doing the big Hall H presentation for the fans.

The way it went down was this. The first big presentation was for Ghost Rider, followed by Spiderman 3 and then the next morning was The Grudge 2. In each press conference we got most of the major actors, and all the directors.

Now I know by now most of the information that was talked about is online. However if I were a fan of any of these properties, I would want to hear what each participant said, not just hearing about it through other people’s words or summaries.

The other thing is you really need to hear certain things about each press conference. For the Ghost Rider one, listen to how much of a rock star Nicholas Cage sounds like. For Spiderman 3, listen to the playful ribbing of Sam Raimi on Tobey Mcguire, or how Kirsten Dunst is nervous to answer any question for fear of giving more away than she already has. On the Thomas Hayden Church portion listen to how funny he is, or how happy Topher Grace is to be a part of this movie.

These types of moments are very hard to capture in words, so I am really happy to be able to provide the audio for all of you to hear.

Now there are some problems when you go to listen to these interviews. First of all, the room was packed with people and some of the questions were not picked up clearly by my audio recorder. The good thing is all of the answers are loud and clear, and for the most part you can hear everything, I just wanted to warn you why it is not perfect.

Finally I want to thank Sony for letting us attend the press conferences, overall it was a fun time.

Now that the Sony portion is done I am going to start working on the same type of article for Warner Bros. and Paramount. In what should go up on Thursday you will be able to hear Neil Gaiman and his entourage talk about Stardust. For the film 300, I have Frank Miller, Zach Snyder and the stars. Also I have tons of stuff on The Wicker Man and The Reaping. Wow, I have a lot of work to do. Did I say Thursday?

Enjoy the audio.
