WonderCon 2012 just got a hell of a lot more awesome with the addition of two new movie panels! Rian Johnson's highly anticipated sci-fi film, Looper, will premiere the first footage for the film ever released. There will also be a panel for Marc Webb's incredible looking reboot of The Amazing Spider-Man, and they will be showing 8-minutes of footage for that bad boy. Both these films are on my Top 10 list of most anticipated movies of 2012, so I'm excited as hell to be able to see some new footage from them!
These panels will take place during the Sony presentation on Saturday, March 17th between 4:15 and 5:30. To see the full WonderCon schedule Click Here. Will you be attending WonderCon this year?
Here are the details for the panels:
Looper — Joseph Gordon-Levitt and writer-director Rian Johnson come to WonderCon to give fans a first look at the futuristic action thriller Looper. And when we say, "First look," we mean it! The panel will premiere the first footage anyone anywhere has seen from this movie. In Looper, time travel will be invented, but it will be illegal and only available on the black market. When the mob wants to get rid of someone, they send their target 30 years into the past, where a "looper"—a hired gun, like Joe (Joseph Gordon-Levitt)—is waiting to mop up. Joe is getting rich and life is good. . . until the day the mob decides to "close the loop," sending back Joe's future self (Bruce Willis) for assassination. the film is written and directed by Rian Johnson and also stars Emily Blunt, Paul Dano, and Jeff Daniels. Ram Bergman and James D. Stern produce.
The Amazing Spider-Man — The Amazing Spider-Man is back on the big screen, shot in 3D for the first time, and will be swinging into your neighborhood on July 3, 2012. Director Marc Webb and star Emma Stone appear live at WonderCon to give you your Spidey fix! For the fans who haven't seen it, here is your chance to see the eight minutes of footage that the filmmakers recently presented in a 13-city global launch event.
