Don't be fooled by our rather pedestrian image of actor Paul Giamatti attached to this article, the comedy-horror-thriller John Dies at the End is not a simple story.
Ostensibly about two slackers who begin to understand the "secret behind the universe" after trying a drug called Soy Sauce, the trailer, which just premiered at Austin's Fantastic Fest, is filled with giant bugs, men in strange masks, a meat monster, lots and lots of guns and Giamatti frequently popping up trying to make sense of it all. The movie's official synopsis does a better job than the trailer itself.

It's a drug that promises an out-of-body experience with each hit. On the street they call it Soy Sauce, and users drift across time and dimensions. But some who come back are no longer human. Suddenly a silent otherworldly invasion is underway, and mankind needs a hero. What it gets instead is John and David, a pair of college dropouts who can barely hold down jobs. Can these two stop the oncoming horror in time to save humanity? No. No, they can't.
Cowboys and Aliens is still in production, and has only been shooting for a month, but that wasn't going to keep director Jon Favreau away from this year's Comic-Con. "I wanted to come back and say thanks to the fans," Favreau told USA Today. "You don't want to be forgotten by these guys."
Favreau continued that the Iron Man panel from the 2008 convention "changed everything," and he feels that "it's important to let them know what they did for me." Favreau ended up giving fans a pretty memorable impression, showing two rough scenes from the movie, and bringing them a Comic-Con icon to his first convention.

Fans got a sneak preview of some teaser footage from the David Fincher-produced animated adaptation of The Goon prior to the San Diego Comic-Con, but now the entire concept trailer has made its way online. Based on Eric Powell's comic book, The Goon features the voices of Clancy Brown and Paul Giamatti as the Goon and Franky, respectively, two friends who fight off the zombie plague. Powell wrote the script for the adaptation and, at the Comic-Con panel for the project, revealed that all the major characters from the comic book would be in the movie. watch the teaser footage being used to raise funds for the movie >> Posted 07.26.10 by Ryan
