Top Ten Most Memorable Things About Comic-Con 2011

by Staci Layne Wilson


10. The sickly but seductive sweetness of the Butterfinger martini at the party.

9. Getting to see a clip of Final Destination 5 in 3D and having it be a scene we actually saw being shot on the set in Vancouver.

8. Meeting Chris Sarandon and talking to him about Fright Nights V 1.0 and the remake.

7. Riding the mechanical shark at the Shark Night 3D party and not getting bucked off.

6. Geeking out on interviweing Marc Webb, not because of Spider-Man 4 - but because of (500) Days of Summer!

5. Director's injuries: Guillermo del Toro's back sprain; Francis Ford Coppola's bad knee (this would factor in later for my #1 Most Memorable Moment).

4. Val Kilmer's bizarre answers to my mudane questions on Twixt. I said something typically, journalisitcally dumb like, "What drew you to this role?" And then his 10 minute answer, culminating in something about Matisse's artwork.

3. Colin Farrell being extra sweet, and even doing a "Chewbacca" impersonation.

2. Mistakenly calling Kat McPhee by Kat Denning's name.

1. Conducting an interview from Francis Ford Coppola's good knee (at his request... he made me an offer I couldn't refuse!)
