Movies Chat is our new work-in-progress chat show hosted by Movies.com Managing Editor Erik Davis. Each month we'll release multiple episodes that feature 15-20 minute conversations with some of the web's most notable movie experts.
We're just about a month away from this year's San Diego Comic-Con, which is arguably the country's biggest and most influential fan convention, covering everything from comics to video games to TV to movies and a lot more. And if Variety's early list of potential films at the convention is any indication, it's going to be a fun year for movie fans.
With appearances from highly-anticipated movies like Man of Steel, The Hobbit, and Iron Man 3, there's plenty to chat about. So I called up my buddy Mike Sampson, editor-in-chief of Screencrush, to discuss the potential ups and downs of the 2012 San Diego Comic-Con.
I should also use this time to announce that I'll be hosting a series of Comic-Con Chats from the convention this year, so stay tuned for lots more about the event.
You can listen to our chat using the player below, and feel free to email me any questions, comments or concerns to movieschat AT gmail DOT com.
