Fox Pulls Out of Comic-Con [Updated #4]

Seems Fox has pulled out of this year’s Comic-Con event, according to LATimes. No specific reasons are given in the article except saying the material wasn’t ready.

“The studio pulled out of Comic-Con on Wednesday, just a week shy of the massive movie fan convention in San Diego, canceling its star- and filmmaker-studded panel, saying clips from its slate of effects-heavy films just aren’t ready… Fox movies pulled from the schedule are “Jumper,” directed by Doug Liman and starring Hayden Christensen; directors Colin and Greg Strause’s update to the popular “Aliens vs. Predator” franchise; the Vin Diesel action film “Babylon A.D.”; and “Hitman,” starring Timothy Olyphant, based on the wildly popular video game of the same name.”

It’s not the end of the world. Just means people going to Comic-Con won’t be seeing the AvP2 Trailer. You can read the full article in this thread. Thanks to CloakedHunter for the bad news.

Update #1: CHUD revealed Fox pulled out because they were told that any R-Rated material wasn’t allowed to be shown during the presentations.

Update #2: Colin posted in the forum and said that the R-Rated trailer will be still shown online as promised.

Update #3: Greg said on IMDB that the trailer will be online about a week or so after Comic-Con.

Update #4: There’s so many rumours going around at the moment. CHUD have spoken to David Glanzer (director of publicity for Comic-Con) who said that they aren’t against R-Rated material and Fox will still be appearing at Comic-Con. So it looks like Fox will be showing something, but who knows if they’ll have an AvP2 presentation or not.
