The focus of today’s Comic Con 2011 update is Francis Ford Coppola’s new movie, Twixt, that made it’s debut at Comic Con 2011.. Coppola returns to the horror genre with this film, hiring Val Kilmer, Bruce Dern and Elle Fanning to show the public a horror film that involves ghosts, vampires, and a troubled writer that resembles Stephen King. The writer is engaged in uncovering mysterious murders that happened half a century ago in a remote American town, while the plot borrows from Edgar Allan Poe.
The Comic Con 2011 update will not be complete without noticing that Val Kilmer plays the role of the writer and is the main character who bears comical properties. Other titles worth noticing at Comic Con 2011 include Sony’s Total Recall, a remake of the classic Arnold Schwarzenegger movie, and The Amazing Spider-Man, along with the Ghost Rider sequel and the comedy 30 Minutes or Less.
Total Recall is directed by Len Wiseman with Colin Farrell staring as Douglas Quaid, the role originally played by the former governor of California. Andrew Garfield is the new Spider-Man in the Amazing Spider-Man, visitors of Comic Con 2011 learned. “I needed Spider-Man in my life as a kid and he gave me hope,” Garfield told journalists.
