The first full day of Comic-Con 2012 is now officially half-over, and one of the highlights of Day 1 thus far was, as always, the Trailer Park. Located in Hall H, the annual event is a showcase for the newest trailers in the world of film and TV (or, as was the case this year, a previously-released trailer snuck in, but presented for the first time in 3D). Curious as to what appeared, and what made an impression? Read onward!
According to ComicBook.com, “thousands waiting in line” for the chance at making their way into Hall H to catch clips from the newest/ most anticipated films of 2012 and 2013. First up? The 3D version of the previously-released Dredd trailer. While the clip itself wasn’t new, the 3D apparently really helped sell the odd, slow-motion action and violence that populates the trailer.
For a complete change of pace, next up was the trailer for Finding Nemo 3D. In case you’re curious what that is, let us break it down for you: it’s the original Finding Nemo…in 3D. That’s it. Look for that shameless cash-in to hit theaters on September 14th.
Keeping the family-friendly vibe going, a short teaser for Despicable Me 2 was next, featuring the yellow minions from the first film singing karaoke. The sequel is set for a July 3, 2013 release.
The computer animated 3D comedy Hotel Transylvania was up next, featuring the voice of Adam Sandler as Count Dracula, who owns a—you guessed it—hotel in Transylvania, in which all the monsters of the world come to visit, along with his daughter (celebrating her 118th birthday).
Maintaining the movie monster theme, but ditching the PG-rated vibe, was the 3D trailer for Resident Evil: Retribution. The trailer itself was previously released—check out our breakdown of the awful thing—but like, Dredd, this version was in 3D.
Last up was Rise of the Guardians, a 3D, computer animated comedy about an Avengers-like team up between Jack Frost, Tooth Fairy, Santa Claus, Easter Bunny, and the Sandman. Cute. And, of course, in 3D. Ride of the Guardians is set for a November 21, 2012 release.
