#SDCC: Sony Pictures Entertainment: The Other Guys, The Green Hornet, and Priest
Pictures Entertainment hosted a long format panel to show off a few of it’s geekier wares to the tons in attendance within the hallowed halls of nerditry known far and wide as San Diego Comic Con 2010! The panel began its Priest preview to a packed house. Cartoon Network’s golden boy Genndy Tartakovsky showed off an animated intro to the upcoming vampire hunter flick. Shortly thereafter, the panel moved on to…
The Other Guys–Sony’s buddy-cop-comedy starring Will Ferrell, Mark Wahlberg (he tells your mother he said Hi…), Eva Mendes, Samuel “What Am I Not In?” L. Jackson and Dwayne “The Toothfairy Rock” Johnson. Director Adam McKay (of Anchorman fame) joined Ferrel, Wahlberg, and Mendes on the dais. After numerous hilarious clips peppered the audience, they opened up the floor for questions. Eva Mendes coyly hit on an “adorable boy in oversized glasses” before he could ask his question. To this, Ferrell quickly noted “BONER ALERT!” to the crowd. Later, he also denoted his love for the city of “The Whales Vagina”, and asked to fight anyone in attendance. They ended the panel with a quick sneak preview of McKay and Ferrell’s “The Virginity Hit”, which promises to be the next generations American Pie. Never mind that Pie is just over 10 years old.
But how about the meat and potatoes of the event, shall we? Seth Rogen came up to the stage to deliver a brand new trailer for his action epic, The Green Hornet. Director Michael Gondry, and vile villain extraordinaire Christoph Waltz joined shortly thereafter… and the two discussed their flick for the fans, whilst debuting a few sundry clips… including a “let’s let crap fly at your face” 3D fight sequence. Rogen noted that the movie is not based that much on the old radio series, but really more so on the mythology and the TV show.
