Love 'Em to Death: Which of These New Films Tops Your Wish List?

By Michael Cavna


After viewing footage of so many vampires and zombies and wounded surrogates (oh my) -- much of it at San Diego Comic-Con -- only two words come to mind when surveying the upcoming slate of fanboy-courting flicks: Bloody hell.

Now that the new trailer for the hugely anticipated "New Moon" is out, it's time to take a head count, if not a body count: Which of these four films -- with their differing degrees of gore and gashes and physical bashing -- would you see first, if you had to pick one?

From such minds as Diablo Cody ("Jennifer's Body," starring Megan Fox as a life-sucking reverse-Juno) to "Surrogates" graphic novelists Robert Venditti & Brett Weldele (Bruce Willis time-travels his way to another paycheck), here are the various trailers, O mighty Riffsters. Feel free to vote below.

"JENNIFER'S BODY":

"SURROGATES":

"THE TWILIGHT SAGA: NEW MOON":

"ZOMBIELAND":

Where the Wild Things Are! Mid-October, I think.

Cartoon Network has been flogging "Jennifer's Body" to the geek crowd (who presumably will return the favor, if you know what I mean).

So...we're not even pretending that this blog is about comic strips anymore, are we?

Option 5 - I couldn't care less.

re: stewartflamingo & tws1372, I'm beginning to wonder why I even bother coming here.
Q> What do comic strips and horror flicks have in common?

A> Not me.

I don't see anything wrong with an occasional off-topic posting, but it would be nice if the "Riffster" would at least include an option for NONE OF THE ABOVE in every poll taken. In this case, I would expect the nonexistent Option #5 would have won an absolute majority.
