    Has Comic Con Lost Its Luster? Some Studios Planning to Skip This Year, But

    Is it just me or does this seem a little reactionary and premature. Tickets sold out almost immediately and studios aren't going to use this forum as free publicity? Please. In my opinion the reason why Scott Pilgrim failed, besides the odd nature of it scaring people off, is that the majority of what would have been the paying audience got to see it at one of the multiple free screenings that occured well in advance of it's opening.

    I think the problem with this years Convention is that most of the stuff that would normally have a presence is either going to be out before or is too far off to really have anything to bring. It's a timing issue. So for all the purists SDCC will go back to being more about the comics.

    You know, that'll be fine with me if some of the studios decide to pass on CC this year. As much as I love it, I look at it as less butt-numbing time in Hall H...and maybe a little more time to relax and actually enjoy the overall CC environment in downtown. Maybe I'll be able to sleep in a little later...take a break in the afternoon and have a *real* lunch out in Gaslamp...or even not be so completely wiped out at the end of the day, that I don't even want to venture out of the hotel to grab some late night dinner in Little Italy. Either way, it's always a blast...can't wait!

    Director Andrew Stanton Talks JOHN CARTER; Reveals Why the Film Isn’t Coming to Comic-Con Plus Concept Art


    During an interview with Hero Complex, Stanton was asked why the film is skipping out on Comic-Con and he responded thusly:

    “I think what it was is the perception that it’s getting harder and harder to stand out amid the din. We’re going to do our special event to get some focus and separation. I know some people will read that as a sign that we’re unsure of our property. It’s just the opposite. We want to control how and what is being seen and the way it is presented. So much stuff now is just spit out so fast and the churn of it all. You almost gain nothing by talking about things really early in this day and age. I think in the future we might see things arrive the way Prince announces a concert where a few days before the show he announces it and tickets just go up. You might see that with movies and other things. That seems like the only way to get people interested and then capitalize off that interest.”

    I understand the need to control the marketing of your film and how soon you want to reveal things, but Comic-Con seems like a no-brainer, even if it’s just the cast talking about the film. Especially now that Disney’s initial marketing for the flick has fans a little uneasy about the now-titled John Carter.
    For films like this, skipping SDCC is a mistake. This flick NEEDS buzz. This newfound Anti-sdcc sentiment is fine with me. I think a lot of smaller flicks will take advantage of the big boys staying away and stuff like last year's Pirahna/Machete won't have to concentrate on offsite promotions.
