Screen Gems attacks Comic-Con

'Attack the Block,' 'Underworld' promoted at Hall H panel

Sony Screen Gems showed off “Underworld: Awakening” and “Attack the Block” during its Hall H panel.

As for future “Underworld” pics, “They’re absolutely not going into space,” said helmer and producer Len Wiseman. “That will never happen.

“A lot has to do with this one over here,” referring to Kate Bekinsale.

As for “Attack the Block,” an alien invasion set in south London, Edgar Wright said he was inspired by John Carpenter’s pics and “An American Werewolf in London” when writing and producing the pic.

“Instead of aliens landing in little Elliot’s back yard they land in the middle of mofos in south London,” said director Joe Cornish, who co-wrote “The Adventures of Tintin.”

“We like to call it ‘Super 8 Mile,” Wright said of the film’s comparison to “Super 8” by an attendee.

Wright and Cornish stressed the look of the aliens, with glowing teeth, being different from other creature designs in horror pics.

“Sometimes you think the dragon in ‘Harry Potter’ could fly into ‘Cloverfield’ and no one would notice,” said Cornish who was inspired by the rotoscope technique used in Ralph Bakshi’s “Lord of the Rings.”

Wright and Cornish are also penning Marvel’s bigscreen launch of “Ant-Man,” which they handed in a draft of the script for on Monday, and completed concept art.

“It’s something we’re excited about and hope it happens soon,” Wright said.
