Quite possibly the three most talked about (and over-rated) films and TV shows of the year, New Moon, “True Blood,” and “Battlestar Galactica” will be taking over the 2009 Scream Awards! Vampires seem to be ruling everything these days, so why not dedicate an event to them!
SCREAM will celebrate the year of the vampire craze with the cast of New Moon introducing yet ANOTHER world premiere of more, never-been-seen-before footage from the film. Although they have not given the names of which cast members will be present, I’m sure we can expect to see the usual trio of Robert Pattinson, Kristen Stewart and Taylor Lautner.
Next up on the vampire attendees, will be the cast and creators of the hit series “True Blood.” Alan Ball, Stephen Moyer, Anna Paquin, Alexander Skarsgård, Sam Trammell and apparently “more” will all be in attendance. We’re not quite sure who the more will be yet, but as long as Skarsgard is there I’m set. What they’ll be doing? Not exactly sure. Hopefully not biting people.
(Sidenote: I wonder if we could get Pattinson to battle Moyer and we can settle once and for all which vampire series is better)
Finally, steering away from the vampires and more into the sci-fi realm is the “Battlestar Galactica” cast! Edward James Olmos, Tricia Helfer, Grace Park, James Callis, Kate Vernon, Katee Sackhoff, Michael Trucco Tahmoh Penikett and executive producer David Eick will be reuniting for a final farewell and a special tribute to horror legend George Romero.
In addition, Spike TV will also be partnering up with Comic-Con once again and honoring the greatest comic-book hero of all, Stan Lee. Tobey Maguire will be leading the tribute to one of the most beloved and influential comic book legends of all time, for his legendary work on characters such as Spider-Man, The Fantastic Four, X-Men, Iron Man and The Hulk.
