Going to Comic-Con is a GOOD thing for Hollywood, right? After all, if filmmakers didn't get something out of it, we figure they wouldn't keep going. Unfortunately, according to research, all those screenings, panels and free merch might not always work. Because with only two exceptions, interest in movies with major presentations in San Diego DROPPED this week!
According to The Hollywood Reporter, Flixter's research showed that save for Scott Pilgrim vs. the World and Sucker Punch (for which online activity went through the roof an astounding 2,884 percent!), interest in all other films went down.
The supposed biggest Comic-Con loser? Green Lantern, with interest down 21 percent.
While we can understand the Sucker Punch love—we can't stop talking about that trailer either—we don't understand why films like Green Lantern would have suffered. Because after Ryan Reynolds recited the oath, one of the more buzzworthy moments in San Diego, we thought interest would have increased.
It can't be entirely blamed on Comic-Con burnout, not with two films on the rise. So what do you think it all means?
