SDCC09: Movies & Talent Galore|
Every year, Comic-Con becomes more expansive and more geared toward mainstream pop culture brands and franchises. Indeed Hollywood has fully taken over the convention, with highly-anticipated films and television shows of all kinds taking center stage.
CTR participated in more than just toy coverage at this year's SDCC, taking in movie screenings & preview footage and interviewing filmmakers & celebrities. This is part of a strategy to not only delve deeper into the franchises that spawn many of the toys and collectibles we cover, but also to lay the groundwork for a possible new venture that would have the crew behind our sites covering much more than just collectibles. Until we are ready to announce something officially, however, be sure to stay tuned right here to CTR for our latest coverage!
