Watchmen Panel @ WonderCon 2009 stars

Director Zack Snyder walked out to thunderous applause. After a brief introduction, the first 15 minutes of the movie was shown spanning the death of the Comedian to Rorschach discussing with Nite Owl about the Comedian. Actors Malin Akerman, Billy Crudup, Jackie Earle Haley, Jeffery Morgan, Patrick Wilson, and the original Watchmen artist Dave Gibbons joined Snyder afterwards.

Unfortunately I didn't have my pad with me during this panel, so rather than trying to recount what happened, you can watch a video a fan posted on youtube of the panel. We also were able to take a bunch of photos of the cast which can be found in our gallery here.

Star Trek Panel @ WonderCon 2009 stars

WonderCon's special guest turned out to be famed director and creator J.J. Abrams himself (and members of the cast) taking the podium as he addressed the overfilled room. Abrams noted he had just flew back in the country after a visit to Tokyo, Japan and is "so excited and can't wait for you to see the film." Abrams took a step back to show a special world premiere of the brand new Star Trek trailer that will also be shown at the Watchmen opening on March 6.
