I was pretty bummed this past weekend that more studios didn't show up to New York's ComicCon to promote some of their big, highly-anticipated films. I thought for sure Warners would be there with an exclusive 300 something, and Fox did nothing for Fantastic Four: Rise of the Silver Surfer. Sure, there was a booth set up promoting the FF2 video game (as well as a TV monitor featuring pic's current trailer), but how about a new trailer, some clips or a panel? Heck, I'd even take some dude dressed up as the Silver Surfer signing autographs. (Oh wait, there was someone dressed up signing autographs ... nevermind.)

Needless to say, a new Silver Surfer character poster has just hit the net, and it features the Surfer on his board -- all silver-like -- with the word "Rise" scrawled across the top right-hand corner. It's a pretty cool poster, and I believe it was floating around ComicCon, but I could be wrong. Set to surf into theaters on June 15, I imagine we should be getting another trailer soon; the first one definitely piqued my interest, and I wasn't a fan of the original flick. But, like with most superhero-related sequels, all the boring set-up is now out of the way leaving director Tim Story plenty of room to (hopefully) blow our minds. Worse case scenario: We get to look at Jessica Alba in a skin-tight suit for an hour and a half. Life could be a lot worse, folks ...
