The NY Times has an article about movie folk going to the San Diego Con to promote their wares. The general feeling is that they know they need to be there, but they’re not necessarily happy about it. There’s also some poking fun at comic fans and the way they have to be catered to.
Frank Miller blogs about his Spirit movie, concluding (at this writing — there’s no way to link to the particular entry) that real actors are better-looking and more realistic than CGI-generated people. I’m getting the vibe from this film that I did about Sky Captain and the World of Tomorrow — although it uses real people, too much emphasis on gorgeous visuals and what can be done to pay attention to a gripping story. Maybe I just haven’t paid attention, and it’s just me who can’t answer “what is this movie about?”
Viz Pictures has a “zany romantic comedy” coming out about “a nerdy Japanese office worker and his obsession with the little-seen Maiko (apprentice Geisha) world” called Maiko Haaan!!! Visit the website, enter the contest (before June 24), and potentially win a copy of the DVD along with a poster and keychain.
