They just posted the daily schedules for this years San Diego Comic Con (http://www.comic-con.org). If you're into DVDs and are planning on attending, these panels might be of interest:

Thursday July 22

1:30 - 3:00 - DVD Producers - The Digital Bits editors Bill Hunt and Todd Doogan talk DVD with some of the hottest producers working in the industry today. Scheduled to appear are

Charles de Lauzirika (Alien Quadrilogy, Spider-Man 2)
J.M. Kenny (Footloose SE, Troy)
Javier Soto (Devil's Backbone, Hellboy)
David Prior (Panic Room SE, Master and Commander)

The producers will discuss projects currently in production and engage in a lengthy Q&A with the audience. Door prizes will be given away (including movies and a DVD player)

(I can't recommend this enough. I got to ask a question the last time they did this and it's a blast to be able to hold their attention. Get in line early if you want to ask a question)


Friday July 23

5:00 - 600 Hellboy DVD - Writer/Director Guillermo del Toro, creator Mike Magnolia, DVD producer Javier Soto and visual effects supervisor Blair Clark participate in a panel discussion and presentation regarding the cutting-edge 2-disc DVD set.

5:30 - 7:30 New Line Cinema The first part of this panel will be a discussion of Blade: Trinity with stars Jessica Biel and Ryan Reynolds and director David Goyer. The second part will present a first look at the Extended Edition of Return of the King DVD.

Corey Haim and Corey Feldman will be on hand for a special Q&A about the upcoming SE release of The Lost Boys. As an added bonus for Comic-Con guests, there will be an exciting DVD announcement for one of the greatest sci-fi trilogies of all time.

Don't forget this:

Friday - 4:00-5:00 Friday the 13th: Jasons Unmasked—Paramount Home Entertainment hosts a Friday the 13th panel discussion moderated by webmaster and author Peter Bracke (DVD File). Panelists include five of the Jasons: Kane Hodder, C. J. Graham, Richard Brooker, Warrington Gillette, and Ari Lehman, and two directors, Tom McLoughlin and John Carl Buechler, who will discuss their work on the films and the search for the elusive deleted F13 footage.

I'll be at the con with a camera crew, so if anyone sees the UGO logo on a nice-looking camera, say hi. Unless you're a lurker and a newbie and I don't know you. ;)

Went to this at the 2001 Comic-Con and it's well worth it. Plus the audience gets to Q&A the producers. It's kind of like posting on here except you get the answers from the horses mouth and not just speculation from your DVDTalk brethren.
:D

It's cool you'll be there w/crew and I'll be on the lookout for ya. :up:

The programming this year goes later into the evening than previous years so I'll try to make daily updates. There's always always always surprise guests so that's what makes it exciting.

Oh, and Global Observer, you are correct!
