One of the biggest and more star-studded sessions of Comic-Con 09, Sony Pictures Entertainment: Legion and District 9 is sure to be one of the con's most popular panels. First up is the apocalyptic movie Legion. Telling the story of a host of angels trying to bring about the end of times, this panel features Paul Bettany (The DaVinci Code), Adrianne Palicki (Friday Night Lights), Tyrese Gibson (Transformers), Doug Jones (Hellboy), and director Scott Stewart (helming his first feature film after working on VFX for Sin City, Harry Potter and The Goblet of Fire, and Iron Man).
Gamers, moviegoers, and comics fans are anxious to learn more about District 9. Here's the official description:
Peter Jackson makes his eagerly and long-awaited first visit to Comic-Con to introduce you to the world of District 9, which focuses on a world in which extraterrestrials have become refugees in South Africa. Thirty years ago, aliens made first contact with Earth. Humans waited for the hostile attack or the giant advances in technology. Neither came. Instead, the aliens were refugees, the last survivors of their home world. The creatures were set up in a makeshift home in South Africa's District 9 as the world's nations argued over what to do with them—as well as their powerful technology and advanced weaponry that can only be activated by Alien DNA. Please join Peter Jackson as he gives fans a first look at scenes from District 9 and takes your questions along with director Neill Blomkamp and star Sharlto Copley.
