WonderCon 2012 is officially over. ScreenCrave was on hand for all the television panels, which featured exclusive screenings of “Once Upon a Time,” “Community” and “The Secret Circle.” If you were unable to travel to Anaheim last weekend, allow us to get you up to speed.
Here we go…
Person of Interest
We kicked off our coverage with a couple Warner Bros’ TV screenings. First up was “Person of Interest,” which was kind of a bust. Instead of showing attendees a new episode, they played the pilot, which aired on CBS back in September. When it was announced you could actually hear groans from the crowd. The only exciting element was the video introduction given by executive producers Jonathan Nolan and Greg Plageman. And that only lasted 45 seconds.
The Secret Circle
Where “Person of Interest” failed, “The Secret Circle” prevailed. Whoever thought we’d write that sentence? They presented an all-new episode, six days before its CW premiere. It’s called “Curse,” and we wrote up a preview piece highlighting all the juicy details. Mild spoilers are mentioned.
Once Upon a Time
The panel for ABC’s fairy tale drama “Once Upon a Time” featured a Q&A with show creators Adam Horowitz and Edward Kitsis. The duo teased the audience about future episodes and announced a big return for the finale. Check out our “Once Upon a Time” breakdown to learn who’s coming back.
As expected, “Community” was easily our favorite panel. Creator Dan Harmon was joined by stars Yvette Nicole Brown, Gillian Jacobs and Ken Jeong to bring some laughter to the Anaheim Convention Center. They screened an upcoming episode, which involves a blanket fort, Subway and the return of John Goodman. The cast and crew also spoke about their characters and what we can look forward to in the remaining episodes.
Saturday was movie day, and 20th Century Fox debuted two highly anticipated trailers. One was for Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter (watch it now) and the other was Ridley Scott‘s Prometheus (watch it now). The former is a campy horror adaptation of the novel of the same name. It stars Benjamin Walker as the title character and opens in theaters June 22.
Prometheus mark’s Ridley Scott’s long-awaited return to the sci-fi genre. The film has an all-star cast including Oscar-winner Charlize Theron, Michael Fassbender, Noomi Rapace and Idris Elba. Prometheus will be released June 8.
