Comic-Con 2013: ‘Robocop,’ ‘The Amazing Spider Man 2′ and ‘Cloudy 2′ are Coming
The studios are starting to announce all their Comic-Con 2013 panels (we should have a full schedule by the end of the week), and the latest is Columbia Pictures, who will be bringing 'The Amazing Spider-Man 2,' 'Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs 2,' and their 'Robocop' remake to San Diego.
Sony will be in Hall H on Friday, July 19 with these films, and they've announced who they're bringing out for the festivities. 'The Amazing Spider-Man 2' will have producers Avi Arad and Matt Tolmach, director Marc Webb, and stars Andrew Garfield, Jamie Foxx and Dane DeHaan. As the film isn't due out until May 2, 2104 (and production just wrapped), it's likely that we'll get a scene or two and possibly a teaser.
There's yet to be a trailer for their 'Robocop' reboot (due February 7, 2014), so this seems like a good place to drop one. In attendance for the panel will be director José Padilha, and stars Joel Kinnaman, Abbie Cornish, and Samuel L. Jackson, and this panel is going to be a make or break moment for the film. Can they win fans over?
'Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs 2' is also coming (it's hitting theaters September 27), and they're bringing directors Cody Cameron and Kris Pearn, and stars Anna Faris and Terry Crews. This might not have the must-see factor of Marvel's recent panel announcement, but it will be interesting as a trial by fire for 'Robocop.'
