Thanks to the happenings and reveals from the in progress Comic Con International: San Diego (or SDCC for short); Our Pop Culture side of the fence has been thriving over the last couple of weeks and there is a lot more to come.

PiercingMetal Thoughts: I was a fan of the original film for the most part since they managed to keep it very close to the source material and of course I view the original maxi-series as a work of comic book genius so with that being the case I was planning on being a little bit tough on this new series. Turns out it looks rather good and I do still have an HBO subscription despite my considering cancelling once “Game Of Thrones” had ended. I’ll probably program this one and keep on point with clips, images and news reports as best as possible. What did you readers think of this brand new trailer? Chime in down below in the comments and let us know what you think. See you soon.
